i am looking into uwash for grad school in either ancient history or classics. does any one have any information on either program, the city itself and the people. coming from the midwest (OH and MI) i don't know very much about the northwest.
My wife and I just moved to Seattle from Ohio, so if any one has any questions about moving to Seattle area, I might be able to answer. Also, if anyone wanted to hang out, that would we cool.
Hey...I figured that it was finally time to stop silently lurking and say something. I will be attending UW in the fall (PhD program--Classics) and I'm coming out of a small liberal arts college in the middle of nowhere, so it will be a little bit of a transition (though one I'm very willing to make).
Anyway, I'm planning on moving to Seattle in early August. Is anyone else moving around then? Has anyone already moved? I'm trying to monitor what may be available in the way of apartments (I don't want to spend more than $600/month for rent), though I know what is available now probably will be taken before August. What have you guys been doing in the way of apartment/housing hunting? I'm mostly curious to see what everyone else is doing about getting a place to call home.
i know this is kind of a longshot since there aren't many people in this community, but i thought i'd give it a try. i'm a senior at the university of texas and i plan to apply for the MFA program in creative writing at UW. is anyone here in the program? i'm looking for any advice i can get, since UW is my first choice for grad school. thanks in advance!
Is there anyone here currently in the MLIS program at UW? What are some thoughts on it? I'm considering doing the evening/distance learning program but might consider doing the day program so I can get through school faster.
I'm worried about admissions though...my grades are only O.K., but I've had years of working and volunteering in a public library (from 7th grade until I finished my associate's degree), so I'm really hoping that would help to balance it out.
I was reading over on the UW community board about getting residency, and I was wondering, as grad students (current ones, some of you?) how hard it is to get residency in your second year.
Money can be so stressing.
Anyone else having trouble getting their department to respond post-acceptance letter? All I know right now is that I'm in for fall--I haven't received any kind of follow-up packet, letter, information, anything that I need to actually start planning to become a student again this fall, from either the department or the graduate school. My department office isn't returning emails and I don't have a good way to leave voicemail and wait for a return call, so I'm getting pretty frustrated.
I'm also getting pretty antsy about housing, too, since I really want to get into Steven's Court and know how competitive it is.
Hey! I'm glad to see this community exists. Once it starts going, it could be a good resource. Where should we promote?
I'm just finishing up my MA in linguistics at uw, but will be changing pace and beginning an MSW this fall in the school of social work.
Nice to meet everyone!
I hope this community gets to be a'rockin pretty soon, because I think it could be pretty cool :)
Anyways, my name is Amy, and I just accepted my offer of admission at UW's Evans School of Public Affairs, and I'm super-duper-excellent-excited. Now... it's just a matter of getting myself across the country, into some place to live and with some furniture... :)
Anyone else in/know people in the Evans School?
I've decided not to attend UW afterall--so best of luck to the rest of you guys!!
