Class of 2014-Stanford PCAP

Recommended Posts

Congrats to everyone accepted :) Does anyone have any recommendations on housing for the first 6 months of school? Or does anyone have suggestions or opinions on what a 45-50min commute would be like? Is commuting doable? Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks!!! Looking foward to meeting everyone at orientation:smile:

Stanford hotel was where many if my classmates stayed. It was relatively cheap about 300 a month iirc of course this was almost 2 years ago. I commuted from daly city, a suburb just outside the city (SF). Took 26 minutes with no traffic. Where will you be coming from?

Thanks Joelseff! I will be coming from the East Bay, San Ramon. I am not sure if I should rent a studio, stay at a hotel when needed or just commute?

I slept in the back of my SUV for the first 7 months, then at the Sequoia Inn on El Camino the last 9 months for $50 a night. The SUV was cheaper, but kinda sucked.

Hello again everyone! I dont know about you guys but I'm getting really really excited now that our orientation is just around the corner.. Btw, has anyone received any info about our orientation yet? Lio said the packet was (or supposed to be) mailed this week.. Well, at least the wait is not as brutal.. :)

No orientation info received yet, but I talked to Leo about a week ago and he also told me that he was sending out the info soon. We'll probably get it next week. See you in a few days!

Congrats to you all! I used to commute with my roomie from san jose. Takes about a good 40-45 minutes each way. It gets a little tiring at times, but wasn't that bad.

My name is Colleen Allen and I can't wait to meet you guys at orientation. I live in aromas which is right between gilroy and salinas. I am going to commute on Caltrain. It takes about 1 hour 25 minutes, but buys me study time. I received the email for the orientation sign up today. Can't wait. Plan to drive to orientation days so let me know is anyone wants to commute with me for that drive (760)792-4834
