Hey all, hope everyone is enjoying these last few weeks of summer.

I am applying to the journalism major this quarter, and I had a couple of questions that I would love answered if anyone feels like it (please feel like it)...

1. Someone told me a while ago that it would be a good idea to attach an article that I wrote, and to also include a letter of recommendation when applying. Did anyone who has applied and been accepted do this? Does this seem like a good idea?

2. Do a lot of people end up getting rejected the first time? I have never known anyone who has applied, so I can't really gauge here. Avg. GPA's? Are they looking for a stellar admissions essay? (400 words isn't much for stellar-ness)

3. Any other tips or suggestions?

Thanks a lot, guys.

Howdy fellow Udubbers, i was just curious as to wondering if you guys knew that a commercial for Old Spice / Red Zone body wash Is going to be filmed at the tailgate area on 09/18/04. The ad campaign is based on an election theme. Three male candidates will
be selected to "campaign" through the tailgate, running on the platform
that they smell great and are a hit with the ladies. They will be on campus
recruiting for the three candidates starting on Tuesday, and holding a
screening session to determine the three guys they will use on Thursday
between noon and 5 pm. These candidates will each be featured in 3
commercials devoted to them! Additionally, they are also looking for as many extras as they can possibly find.They need a crowd for every single shot they do. Some extras (mostly female)will interact directly with the candidate and therefore get huge exposure.
Others will be used in the background. This Sounds pretty awesome... I found out about his from an email someone at the school sent me... o_O Check out and look for the "Wanna be on TV!" link.

CSE 142

I'm taking CSE 142 with Reges, S. I'm trying to buy the textbooks now, but he hasn't submitted his textbook requirements yet.
Does CSE 142 usually have textbooks and thus the professor is being lazy, or are there no required texts?

Thanks so much for all your reply!

Edit: my BH section requires that I have 'extensive programming experience'
I have some exposure, but I'm not sure what qualify as extensive. Does anybody have experience with this particular section? Workload and expectations and such.

Edit 2: Alright, the textbooks are required, but how useful is it really? :)

for those who study music

Hello everyone, this is just a quick question I have for transfer students.

I'm at a community college down here in Vancouver and planning to get my associates' degree in Music. Now, that's all fine and dandy. The problem is the transfer of credits and the actual part of getting into the School of Music. See, I was planning on majoring in Composition. Only problem? My college doesn't offer composition classes alone; it's only touched on a bit in random Music Theory classes.

Now, if any of you happen to be music majors, a bit of advice on what to do about these pesky requirements? Right now I can see my options as being: one, transfer to UW and take MUSIC 216, 217, and 218 one quarter after another, and then audition for the School of Music the next year, thus elongating my stay at the UW for a kind of silly reason.

So... what should I do? Or am I stressing out about nothing?

Question- Getting Mail in the Dorms

So I've got these cowboy boots that I want to order online. They take 12-18 days to ship so they won't arrive to wherever until after I move in if I were to mail them to myself in the dorms. So this is about mailing stuff to my dorm room. I don't know how getting mail in the dorms works. Like if I have a mailbox with a key or my mail goes to the front desk or I don't know. And this would obviously be a large box. You know. Cowboy boots. So should I have them sent to my dorm? I could send them to my brother's place in Seattle but I don't know how much of an effort he'd make to get them for me. Info please? Thanks!

misplaced registration packet

Is there an Elise Wan here? I have you registration information (stickers and stuff) - you must have formally lived in my apartment, and didn't change your address in time. Let me know if this is you (and tell me your middle name) and we can arrange to get it to you. :) if i dont hear back, i'll just put it "return to sender" and hope it makes it's way to you eventually.
