I'm not an architect, but last time I was wandering around in UBC Chapter 3 or 5 looking at stair construction requirements I recall that YOU CAN NOT HAVE COMBUSTIBLE STAIR CONSTRUCTION in this type of occupancy. Check with your very diligent inspector.
Lags into the studs COULD work for wood or steel ledger. You would need to design the lags as cantilevering the thickness of the gypsum plus 1/2 the ledger thickness, plus do other unpleasant checks for Mode III or whatever failure in main member. I recall that even approaching UBC side member perp. to grain table values, the lags are overstressed in bending at a cantilever length of LESS than their diameter....
