Is there anyone in this community who has (in the last year) transfered from a Seattle Community College (South, North, Central) to UW by means of their "Direct Transfer Agreement"?
I graduate at the end of spring quater, with my AA. I will have well above the required 2.5 (more like 3.9), I was the President of the Honor Society (currently just a member) and I'm on the Deans list. Both UW and Seattle Central can't seem to answer ANY of my questions, especially regarding financial aid/scholarships and the admissions process. It would be really great to talk to someone who has already gone through this, and knows what needs to be done in order for it to go smooth. I beg of you all...someone help me.
Also...I'm 19, still technically a dependent as far as the FAFSA goes, and my parents make too much money to qualify for anything. Someone under 24 (that's the dependent cut off) would probably be able to help more than an adult returning to school.

sorry for the X post.

hey y'all, i'm selling a digital camera that's a year old, with a few minor scratches, but overall still kinda looks new (stickers are still on it). it's a sony cybershot DCS-S85, digital still camera with mpeg capabilities, 4.1 Mega pixels with Carl Zeiss lenses and 6x zoom... used to be priced at $499. but i'm selling it for $250 (negotiable...). included are the charger, usb cable, and a 16MB memory stick.

if anyone's interested, comment on this post or send me an e-mail to lffd@u.washington.edu


Another Camera for Sale

Inspired by the last UW post by strata, I just realized that even though I can't take back my digital camera because it's been more than 15 days since I bought it, every college student needs some sort of camera, eh? Especially with all the things to take pictures of around here. I wanted to make movies about life at UW, and all of the squirrels we have here! But we really don't need to talk about that..

So here's my deal:
I got the new Fuji Fine Pix Camera (Lowest price new=$199.99 from Best Buy, link below) and the Cradle/Charger (Lowest price=$79.99 also from Best Buy, link also below) and I realized that even though it made movie clips, they were movie clips without sound. And, since I'm really picky and stubborn, this just will not do. So the camera box has only been opened, the manual was read, and then everything was put right back into the box. However, the box that the cradle came in went out to recycling before I could save it, so basically it comes with EVERYTHING like brand-spanking new, except the box that the cradle came in. Because of this, and because it exceeded the 15-day return policy limit or some dumb rule like that, I can't return it.

So I'm selling the Camera and the Cradle both for $275 or best offer. I'm not selling it at a used price because, well, it's not used. At all. But I realized I'm not going to sell it anywhere at what I bought it for, and no matter what I'm going to get at least a little bit ripped off, so that's why it's just a brand new camera sitting on my desk, glaring at me because I'm too picky to use it. And it's very lonely and needs someone who will love it, not hate it.

Anyway, the exact camera and cradle are here:
Fuji Finepix 3.2 Camera
Fuji Charger/Cradle with Battery

Hello knowledgeable UW-ers.
For those living on campus, just wondering if you could help me with my direct connect problem. I am connected and sharing the required amount on dc++, but everytime I search for something, I get disconnected. It's probably a really simple solution. Whatever. I need help. :) Thanks!
