Shins Tickets?

Anyone know of anyone that can't go to the concert or that has an extra ticket? My friend wasn't going to be able to go, but now can, so we're trying to find her one. You can email me at Thanks!

O-Chem: short vs. long program

Sorry about the registration question (I checked the memories and the only mention of O-Chem was for the summer), but I'm trying to decide whether to take the short program of O-chem (223, 224) or the long program (237,238,239). I'm finishing up my first year of general chem (162, yay) right now, and I really don't like it. I want to major in ecological and evolutionary biology, so I don't imagine I'd need THAT much chemistry (I don't want to do biochem or molecular biology). I was planning on taking the 2-class program, but is it actually less info or is it just 3 quarters worth of material squeezed into 2 classes? Most of my friends are taking the long program even though they hate chemistry, so I'm not sure if it would be worth it or not. I don't know which profs are teaching either of them, it doesn't say.

Any advice?

Edit: Just to clarify, I want to start in the fall, not the summer. ^^; I can't be available for a large chunk of this summer so I'm not taking any classes.

Asian American studies minor?

Hi! I'm gonna be a junior next year, concentrating on getting into the psychology major. Recently I've been interested in Asian American studies and I was wondering if anyone is doing it for a major, minor, and what it's like. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Back pain/Sports Medicine/acupuncture/massage

I was in a car accident 5 years ago and really screwed up my back-- did something to the 4th and 5th vertebrae in my lower back and I can't sit for long amounts of time in a car, class, or airplane. I've been thru some physical therapy and massage therapy, but that stopped about 4 years ago. However, recently (within the past year or so) I have been running into the problem where I am now losing feeling in the lower left area of my back, especially when I cross my legs (for example, during a class). I don't think that's a good sign.

So, I was wondering... does anyone here know if the UW Sports Medicine Clinic deals with back pain? Have you had any experience there? Does anyone know of a good, licensed acupuncturist? Or know of a good massage therapist (who's not terribly expensive)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

(no subject)

I want to make an appointment at Hall Health for sometime next week if I can get in, and I was told by a friend that you get one free visit per quarter. Anyone know if this is true?
