I thought it'd be nice and useful to see who have decided on going to UCLA. We can share ideas, questions and concerns. As for me, I'm interested in housing arrangements. Where will others be living? Anyone looking for roommates?

I'm glad you started this thread... I am going to UCLA 100% sure! I am hoping we get a chance to maybe meet people at some point to find roommates.... but it seems a little late to wait for orientation to find a roommate... does anyone else know something about this?

Steph,
Great! Yes I'm very interested in making housing arrangements, or at least have some ideas about it. I will be new to So Cal and the UCLA area, so I'm open to any suggestions.

I also know two others currently at UCLA, and I was thinking if maybe we were all in the same area for an evening or something, We could all have dinner or go out or something. I am planning on moving to westwood the week after my finals in the spring. I prolly am going to be renting a place at Westside terrace in palms or living with my brother in woodland hills in the valley. so maybe we can all get together then for a barbecue or something anyways I'm just throwing out ideas..... its still a long time away but whatever.....:) I am starting to get really excited about next year. I wish this year was over all ready so i could relax finally the whooooooooole summer. Well good luck to you with your shhhhtuff and yeah..

Later on,

I just heard that from the news.
It sounds pretty bad.
Price on a cadaver, a past human being.....
That's more toward the medicine part, right?

Well, my spring break starts March 13 and ends March 21, so no go on the UCLA get together...

But anyone from NorCal going to UCLA? I'm from Sacramento...maybe we can get to know each other before school starts; it's always good to have a few friends the first few weeks of dental school hell. =)

My AIM is z1ptree if anyone is interested.


What's the list at now?

OKAY, this my first message, but since I will be a Bruin too, I must post one here!!!! I will be living at home with my parents in Woodland Hills in the Valley. My concern is traffic and parking so car pool would be great. My boyfriend is still waiting for word from his Medical School UCLA interview, so that might not be a problem. I cannot wait thil school starts maaannnnnnnnnnnn!!!
I am barely sending out my $200 deposit and stuff, do they immediately send you more info regarding orientation and stuff?
Can't wait to meet you all......

Hey, everybody!

My name's Sujain, and I'm 90% sure (heya, EC! ;) ) that i'll be choosing UCLA... this is where my fam is, and that prolly is the better way for me to go about it, considering how i can be such a homebody... hehehe! Well, tell me more about this shin-dig!!! If it's a potluck, count me in! I would love to get to meet you guys, and forming a support group really sounds GREAT. (not to mention, reassuring!) I agree, the best way to get through this is by sticking together. I did my undergrad at Cal State Fullerton, and am looking forward to a nice, relaxing summer as a beach bum-- although i am seriously excited/anxious/spazzing about September...
Thanks so much for starting this thread... :D

yeah, I am interested in living near campus also.....

maybe we should start posting what kind of roommate we are looking for?

Let me know if anyone is interested in doing something like this...


I need someone funny as hell, wants a balanced experience (not study 24/7 while also not being hung-over in class), responsible, clean....... ummm I'll think of more later :)

Hi everyone! I'm glad this post was started. My name is Amy and I'm a current bruin right now. =) I think it's a great idea that we organize some sort of get-together or something...or in the event any of you decide to visit..I'd be more than happy to show you guys around. I look forward to meeting all of you!

-Amy

P.S. As for housing..don't worry..the apartments around here don't really fill up that fast (prob because rent is so high). On the other hand, they're constructing some graduate housing facilities in the heart of westwood village which should be done next year. Rent is suppose to be cheaper so I guess we can keep that in mind.

So glad this thread is alive!
I think around summer is better for us to get together since we'll all have conflicting schedules until school ends. I too would like to live near campus, at least my first year there b/c I don't really know the place real well. Maybe us ladies can get a bigger place and split among us.

Hey all!

First of all, i must say, that Will Hung guy is my new hero... i seriously gotsta give him props for going all out for his dream. Makes me think if he can, then there's still *hope* for me and this dentist thingie... :D
awwww. Well, there the Hungster goes... changing my life!!!

to follow along the vein stephlynn started for a roomate, i would also like a well balanced person-- or rather, girl like me, although when it comes to partying, i'm pretty much a lightweight-- gimme a wine cooler and i'm out like a light. (pathetic!) So, for me to have fun, which ideally requires me to stay awake, i don't drink all that much...:laugh: i love to go out and have a good time, but when it comes to hitting the books, i can't get away with last minute stuff, so i tend to pace myself... i do TRY to be neat, but sometimes i forget. But i'm not a slob! At least i don't THINK i am ;) i get pretty sloppy when finals roll by, though... and sadly, i can't study with loud music on... and that really sucks, because i do love music.

i'm really glad to come across all you guys. i was feeling pretty intimidated at the thought of meeting my future classmates, but now, eh, not so much. :) J/K! But Honestly, it's a real relief. You guys are all so nice! One of my main concerns about attending UCLA was if the class might be a bit competitive, which is something i'm def not.

Thanks again for this thread, bbpower! And i'm all for us girls getting a place together... i think it would be a great source of moral support. First year sounds pretty daunting.
and JFrave, i look forward to contributing in any way i can. Thanks for offering a place for us to have a BBQ party-- i can't wait! Thanx for saying hi, stephlynn, and good to hear from ya, too, EC! I'm kinda on the small side-- so do you think you could fit me in your luggage when you go on your travels? I've graduated already, and am free from April onwards-- might just need to do some odd jobs before Sept. We're all gonna need CPR training too, right?

Take care, all!
Sincerely, Sujain :clap:

Hi, all,
It was another Super Tuesday! I was just sitting at my chair and see my monitor constantly blinking... It was very very fun.

Hum, Sujain, sure, it just that I will bring empty cases there and pack with stuff to come back. Coming back might be a problem.

As for partying, I guess I break the record by not drinking a sip of alcohol the whole nite. I guess they got the wrong liquor for me. I am more like red wine person, FYI.

As for roomate, there are some good turn out. Me and Rita will be in W. LA this weekend to check out different location. Hope to meet you somehow, Amy.

O, this Thursday, if you guys are in town (meaning san diego).
Several students(n=3) are thinking about getthing together at UCSD Price Center. We will have dinner then some of us will attend the UCSD Pre-dental Society Guest lecture series. It is about TMJ disorder.

As for traveling, I am also going back to Hong Kong, my birthplace and Shanghai, part of my ancestor's birthplace, around mid-May till the end of june. If anyone is interested joining, please let me know. And then, I will have my whole summer off and waiting for something to be planned. (Possibly taking the bike exam and doing a research project)

On the contrary, I like loud music to keep me awake while studying. I m considerate that I am going to get a wireless headphone, so it shouldnt be a problem. Except u will see me jamming while eatting thru the books and notes.

Welcome to the thread!

ec, rcmonkey, amicakes... i'm so jealous you guys are getting together w/o me.. j/k
If it wasn't for the fact that it takes me 4 hrs to get there, and work, and school.. i'd like to join in. Maybe I'll wait for the next time you guys get together again.

i second that, bbpower, sure wish i was able to hang out this month... but duty calls... hopefully i can join in soon.

i'm located in Walnut, CA. Close to the Pomona area... anyone else coming from that general direction? i'm like an hour or so away from UCLA. So what city are you from, bb? I noticed you mentioned a 4 hr. commute...

are any of you guys registered with DentalTown, by the way? It's a pretty helpful site, too. :) I posted a thread there you guys might find interesting!
