Question About A Concert in Portland

If this shouldn't be posted here, please let me know and I will delete it right away. I don't mean to be breaking the rules.

I was wondering if there was anyone else at UW who likes the band 30 Seconds to Mars? If there are any fans, are any of you planning to go to the Portland show next Friday(with a way of getting back to the U-District the same night)? If there is, maybe we could arrange to go together(I don't have a ticket yet)?

Again, if this is totally inappropriate for a post on this community, let me know and I will delete it. I just didn't know where else to post this. I'm sorry.

Curiosity killed the cat

Hi, I've never posted here blah blah blah.

Anyway, I transferred this winter from out of state. From reading entries transfers get the short end of the stick especially out of staters. I didn't want to go to the University a whole five miles from my house because once the Simpson's joke about it uhm yeah. "Everyone gets into Arizona State!".

My Uncle lives here in Seattle and after visiting him a ton of times and campus I wanted to come to school here. My GPA isn't stellar (3.1) but I did have all my core requirements (minus two, a science class and one more foreign language class) completed.  I focused my essay diversity topic on Navajo & Hopi tribes. At the insistence of a friend I also sent three letters of recommend from the presiding judge I worked for, court manager, and a professional photographer. ( I'm an Art History major BTW.)

Needless to say, all of my Uncle's Seattle friends, were shocked that I got in. It was kind of funny because everyone in AZ was telling me "oh you'll get in!" but that's because ASU takes everyone it's just a matter of getting into your program. So from what I gather from this community that a good accomplishment? Is there anyway to figure out how/who/what you were scored by for your admissions? I'm convinced it was the letter from the judge I worked for that probably got me admitted but I guess I'll never know.

Oh and I also saw the memory post about Judy Clark (Art H Adviser) and that woman is INSANE! I spent 30 minutes arguing with her that Physical Anthropology, with the course description in hand, was a NW Science. She spent the rest of the time telling me it wasn't. She finally agreed in the end but it's in one ear and out the other with that woman.

Financial Aid Question

(For the purpose of this question, I’d like answers to be from people who have done this in the past two years. The economy, University rates and financial aid change to much every year for old information to be valid.)

Is there anybody who is from around Seattle who lived in the UW dorms and had financial aid cover all their board, but then moved into an apartment that wasn’t their nearby family residence?

If so, how much did your aid change and in what direction?


I’m thinking about renting next year but I won’t be able to if the financial aid office offers no help since I won’t be in the dorms and my family is near by. Insert long winded explanation of why here.

Thanks in advance. To offer my gratitude to the fickle hearts of this community, here is a comic of some amusement. Or if you're the WashPIRG type, a little giggle about global warming.

(no subject)

I was wondering if anyone knows how taking a quarter off works? would I be on F.A. supension? or do I contact the UW and tell them the circumstances of why I think I should take it off?


Online classes

So, my QSCI class I need to take next quarter is also offered as an online class. My question is: can I just register for the online class like I would for the regular class? Is there anything different about registering for online classes?
