I got into on-campus housing, but they said i'm in overflow housing. i've taken that to mean that they accepted too many applicants (why they would do that i dont know) and now they're gonna convert study lounges or something into dorms and cram 3 or 4 people in there. has anyone gotten any info on this? i'm a little concerned.

    i got the email, but i applied the first day it came out. i'm not part of the overflow crew, luckily, but i might volunteer to do it. i'm just not sure how big the rooms are.

    You will be put into a North Mountain room. They are larger than the standard dorm- you should be fine. It definitely beats any off campus alternative.

    Yeah but don't do it by choice. North Mountain sucks. Hopefully you'll get overflow in Yosemite
