newbie

Heya, I'm new to this community and hopefully new to Seattle come August. I've applied to UW's Masters of Public Health Epidemiology program. Anyone else applying or in grad school in here? or Public Health? I'm from small town Oklahoma so I'm sure it's going to be quite a surprise to be up in Seattle. I have some questions I've been wondering about though...

+I've been reading past entries and ya'll talk about quarters? I'm use to semesters which are from august-dec and jan.-may. Do ya'll just have 'short' semesters? someone explain this to me.

+I've been looking online like at apartments.com and such websites to begin searching for a place to live. What is the best area that is close enought to campus to walk yet is safe? Oh yeah, and a place that allows small dogs. I have a 15 lbs. baby, her name is Mona and I need a place that will allow her. Any suggestions? websites? contacts to help me along this route?

+What are some key things that I need to know or be prepared for before making the move to Seattle and to UW?

Thanks!
