anyway, i'm scoping out colleges and UW is currently my #1 choice, and i'm almost completely sure i want to apply there next year. mainly because i adore seattle (including the weather) and i just really want to live there. however, i have some concerns.
i guess my question is whether or not you'd consider UW worth paying out of state tuition. i've heard great things about it, but at the same time, it IS a state school, so i don't know. i guess i want to hear from some current out-of-state-ers about that.
and also, considering i'll be coming from so far away, i'd most certainly have to live in the dorms for my first year at least. would it be absolutely ridiculous of me to bring a car with me? i know i've read a lot about it being "unnecessary" because of the bus systems and whatnot, but, well, i love my car. and i don't want to be without it, because being alone in a fairly large city with no car makes me nervous. plus i have family in sacramento, and i'd like to have the liberty to make the twelve-hour roadtrip if i decided to. am i just being stupid, or would i actually be able to have my car on campus without seeming like a fool? and if i bring it, will i really be able to PARK it anywhere? i've heard that parking is a big problem at UW.
and... yeah. thanks.
