    Awesome. Congratulations. My wife got her master's at LMU (but in education) and she enjoyed it.

    Don't forget about the new private groups feature here on the site as another way to keep in touch with fellow students.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    The groups feature is basically like one big private conversation where you can upload photos and have private threads and discussion viewable only by members of a group that you invite. (If you choose those privacy options when creating the group)

    Create group using this link.

    Yeah I did. There are questions about your general lifestyle (when you sleep, how clean you like a room), which I assume will have an influence on roommate selection. There was also an opportunity to try to request a specific person, but I didn't do that.

    They’re saying Playa Del Oro is full. Did anyone figure out what they’re doing for housing?

    As someone who lives in that area I wouldn't live in Playa Del Oro. It's way overpriced for what you'll get. Maybe try looking more towards Marina Del Ray (even a bit east of Lincoln) and around Abbot Kinney in Venice. Some areas of Mar Vista are beyond beautiful and very close to the school.

    I lived in Palms which is next to Mar Vista. Also a good area and now there's a subway line there... But it won't take you to LMU.. just Santa Monica. My wife commuted from Palms to LMU and it was a 20 minute or so drive.

    I would love to live anywhere but I would mostly be paying for rent with financial aid? I wouldn’t be able to afford anything my first year since graduate housing comes out of tuition.

    Did everyone get their housing situation sorted out already?

    Has anyone heard a rumor that LMU is having trouble filling seats for Production in the Fall 2018? I've heard the same about Chapman. That they're calling applicants who decided on another school to offer the money to attend. If anyone has any insight into this, please share.

    No - I found out on Wednesday that I was put on a housing waitlist because they had so much interest this year. I was going to do Playa del Oro the first year and then figure something else out the other two years when I had a better sense of things, but I have to figure something else out now...

    No not yet, I’m looking into other places since Playa del Oro was way overpriced and now full.

    same boat. it might work out for the better though. i blew up everyone’s phone and all they can say is that they’re “trying” to find another housing which doesn’t sound too definitive.

    i’m thinking of doing an airbnb the first month so i can scope out the area since i’m coming from out of state. if i can find a 1/1 somewhat
    nearby for around 1600/1700 that’ll work out better than paying 1800 with roommates.

    It’ll work out. 1/1’s in certain places in LA might come out slightly cheaper. or if you can split a 2/2 in a nicer place it’ll be worth it. Also try to see if you can get the $5k scholarship they offer. I spoke to Karol and she made it happen for me.

    I’m a bit worried ‘cause I don’t that have that much money to move to LA with on top of my own bills but we just gotta trust it’ll work out.
