Time:1:15 pm.
I was originally registered for 4 classes at the beginning of the quarter (all 4 were full-time, but one was audited or whatever the word is to be just 2 credits instead, so the professor gave me a lighter workload). However it was too much for me to handle and the need to get done and graduate at the end of winter was gone, so I dropped the heaviest class and am now down to 12 credits.

However, I fell behind in one of my classes and I'm not sure if I can catch up at this point. The instructor even seems kind of cross with me. I'm debating whether or not I should just drop that class as well and take 10 credits next quarter and be done. I already used my annual drop, is it even possible for me to drop another class at this point?

Is there a way to look up classes by number of credits they offer? I saw an adviser about graduating at the end of winter quarter and was told I need 17 more credits, not 15, so I'll need to take a fourth class of at least 2 credits of any subject.

If anyone has any recommendations for what I could take or wants to share personal experience with a past 2 or 3 credit class, I'm open to it.

Subject:International Editions?
Posted by:wockys.
Time:8:56 am.
Does anyone know how International Editions compare to regular editions? Does it make any difference which someone uses? Everything I've read seems to say they're equally good?

I'm looking specifically for Biology 180, does it matter if I use the international edition rather than the one the bookstore has? Also does anyone know if the bookstore's edition comes with anything extra that I'll need? (Like a disc or something? sometimes they have random stuff :/ I can't just go to the bookstore and check at the moment)

Subject:Housing for exchange student
Posted by:nowherelander.
Time:1:38 pm.
I'll be coming to UW on the student exchange program for the fall semester and I'm looking for a place to stay. I've been checking craigslist and the classifieds section of The Daily UW for furnished room and I was wondering if there's anywhere else I should be looking.
Thanks for your help!

Subject:New Fall U-Pass
Posted by:wockys.
Time:9:55 pm.
So starting in fall quarter, we have the new shiny U-Pass, which works like the Orca card right? So my question is, when is it activated? Will it start the first day of quarter, earlier, or not until tuition is paid in full? (I picked mine up in spring quarter, so I've got it, but when will it work?)

Not sure if anyone will know, but thought it'd help to ask

Thanks ♥

Hey all, I know to mail  the application for admission is $60, is it the same when you submit an online application?

Can freshmen sign up for classes online before orientation?
(I'm trying to figure out if it's worth hurrying to get my measles immunity form turned in because almost all the classes I want are full)

it seems like I could find this out really easily but I can't!

Subject:abbreviation question
Posted by:soup_lover_9.
Time:8:40 am.
In writing, I've seen The University of Washington abbreviated as UW and UDub (or U-Dub). Are both abbreviations correct? I always thought people said "U-dub," and wrote it as UW.  

Thanks in advance for clearing up my confusion.

Subject:Financial Aid?
Posted by:wockys.
Time:8:22 pm.
Hi, I'll be a returning student for next year (my second year) and I was wondering when I would hear back about financial aid? It said the fin aid awards would be sent out by mid-April... It says on my financial aid page (thru myUW) that they've recieved my fafsa, how long does it usually take to send out award letters? when are they usually received?

does the uw have any sort of official student forum? I got in awhile ago for next year and every other school I got into seems to have something like that... I mean I can ask some questions on here but I feel like a forum would have a wider range of views about different topics.

Subject:Book Buyback!
Posted by:wockys.
Time:4:44 pm.
It's that time of year, I was wondering if it was really worth it to sell to the UW bookstore though? How much do they usually give back for books? (I have an originally $90 chem 142 textbook and a ~$100 spanish textbook) not that it really matters I guess since anything is better than having them take up room and be useless :/

Subject:Can we remove the Russian porn ad?
Posted by:whiteram.
Time:8:00 pm.
A little bit down the page, there is an explicit ad in Russian advertising people looking for sex partners.  My wife was in the UWMC cafeteria today when it came up on her iPhone.  Needless to say she was rather embarrassed.  I put this here partially hoping we have some moderators who might see this and then remove the offending post.  Or in the very least to push the ad down so people don't get surprised.

so I signed up for BIOL 180 thinking it would be annoyingly easy.

Then I read the e-mail that was sent yesterday.

Did I make a huge fucking mistake or

I'm taking Chemistry 142 next quarter and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find images of the Chem textbook (by Zumdahl) and if you could tell me what edition it is? (I'm going to check out used book stores first to see if I can find it) Thanks!

Subject:UW e-mail + android phone
Posted by:twirlability.
Time:4:56 pm.
Can anyone point me to directions for syncing UW e-mail to an android phone? Pretty please? UW's IT Connect has been hugely unhelpful as it focuses on iPhones.

Thank you in advance from a luddite!

Subject:Importance of Textbooks?
Posted by:wockys.
Time:11:17 am.
Next quarter I'm enrolled in a class that has a textbook tagged as 'optional'. How important is it to get the book when it's tagged optional? Does that mean I'd be able to cover all the material in class and will be totally fine without it?

I'm just not that into spending $100 on a 2 credit course if I don't have to :/
