i'm a prospective student from NY, and i recently found out about UW and thought it sounded pretty cool. since i'm from NY and UW is the only school on the west coast i'm considering i won't be able to visit until (and if!) i get accepted. which kind of sucks, i guess. so,
1.) how are the russian/slavic studies classes?
2.) what's seattle's music scene like?
3.) how's the overall social scene?
