I've been considering UW for their middle eastern studies graduate program, and I was wondering if any of you were in the program or knew someone in it so I could talk to a participant rather than administrators.

Also, I'm an undergrad at UNC Chapel Hill, and I had a miserable time trying to meet people my freshman year. Now that I'm a junior i feel like i know TOO MANY people, but I'm worried that attending a grad school across the country will make me feel very lonely my first semesters there - so, is it easy to meet people in Seattle? Is the university conducive to graduate students meeting each other? Am I making sense? haha

I would love anyone's general insight or thoughts or comments or advice on anything dealing with the school, the grad school, housing, anything.

Has anyone taken architecture 150 with professor Deines? Any thoughts? I have heard this class is really easy, but I want to hear any thoughts of the prof. Also, how many exams are there and do you get to drop one. thanks!
