How did you figure out when your appointment time was?

I called them just now. I was told that we need not worry about it, that all of our classes are guaranteed. When we find out will be up to the advisor but we don't need to stress out about this.

Yeah don't worry about registering for classes! They will walk you through it, most likely in August or September. Some classes you can't even register for until the first week, but TFT // your second years won't leave you in the dust :)

Hey @JLWilco, was just wondering about that facebook group the first years were gonna make. A couple of classmates and i were messaging because we're finding the whole housing situation a bit difficult and thought it would be great to pair up with anyone else also looking for houses together!

Heya! I know my class is currently forming a social committee, the folks who will be in charge of organizing social events as well as creating/managing your facebook group. If I hear any more about its progress, I can let folks in the thread know.

As far as housing goes, I recently found a housing group on facebook just for UCLA, that may be of some help if you're looking for housing near campus.

Any chance I could sneak into that group looking for roommates/places, please?

Heads up: if you were an accepted student you should be getting an invite to the Facebook group today! If not let me know and I'll see what I can do.
