so did anyone actually go to this thing? how was it? did you win anything (the only reason i would have gone)?
btw i think it's great that emmert and gates sr. are so dedicated to improving the uw and the image of the uw. the uw is underrated imo, we're top in medical, and really high up in cse, bioeng, oceanography, all sorts of research. people in the PNW and in these fields recognize the uw as a good school, but because we lack in other areas (law, humanities, some other sciences), and because of just plain ignorance on the part of people, we're barely considered in the first tier of american universities by most.
