Oh no…. Wow I really do not know what to say. You can go to a community college and get good grades, then transfer after your sophomore year. This saves a TON of money. But I can not believe they just retracted your admission. This is probably because of your second semester of high school. I’m sorry.
You can use this link to see your account, make deposits, look at which vendors accept the card, etc.
No ovens, stoves, or anythingggg. I miss cooking! The best way to bake something is to befriend an upperclassman who lives in an apartment so you can use their kitchen.
In all honesty, I’m not sure. I didn’t see them too often in halls. I’ve seen more in plazas and suites.
Bringing a TV is up to you. You get cable channels, and the quality is quite clear. However, it can also be distracting. It can make your room very social (which can be good or bad). Your roommates may not appreciate it. Communicate beforehand whether you guys want one or not.
LANYARDS SCREAM FRESHMAN. I know they’re cute and I guess they’re easy to store your BruinCard and room key in.. but they are expensive and unnecessary in my opinion. A LOT of people had them my year though so it’s up to you if you want to get one!
Sweatpants.. I guess so, if you mean the UCLA ones. But at the same time, many Bruins wear UCLA gear.
It’s that dazed look that distinguishes freshmen the most. That “look” from being set free into the wild, starting a new life, being free to go out whenever you want, and also wondering where in the world your next class is that typically distinguishes you as a freshman ;)
This site shows you your account and what you owe.
They put it in your account if you signed up for BruinDirect, or they mail a check if you did not sign up.
I do not know the policy of “refunding” a loan that you already took out. I never had that situation occur to me. Contact the Financial Aid office for more information.
…Once a week? It really depends on you. Would you like your clothes to smell and look clean? …
You can always air dry your clothes to save money from using the dryer!
I try to carpool as much as I can to save gas and money. I also use resources like the Vanpool system (coming up soon in a tip). There is Zimride as well, which is a way to find carpools in your area.
I just use a laundry hamper, or a reusable bag. It depends on my mode of transportation. If I am in a car with one other friend, I use my large laundry hamper. If I am in a cramped space with many people, I bring a smaller reusable bag.
