KSG is about as hard to get into as HLS. Seriously. Get a lot of impressive work experience before even thinking about it.

Can anybody tell me if the motherboard on my laptop might be fried? It is out of warranty and I don't want to pay $75 just to have it diagnosed. It is a Dell inspiron, about two and a half years old. Occasionally, it just decides to turn off on its own, usually when I am in the middle of something. It does this both while plugged in and while not plugged into the battery. I can usually turn it right back on, but it will inevitably turn off on its own again soon after. No warning, no blue screen of death, just shuts off. Oh, and it gets pretty hot too. not burning hot, but very warm. I ran the system diagnostics and it says there is nothing wrong with the fan. I don't believe it.
Does this sound like a couple hundred dollar problem, or should I chuck it and buy a new laptop?
I recommend cleaning it out with an air duster, make sure the fan spins, and apply a thin layer of thermal paste between the processor and heat sink. Note: these actions typically require an experienced technician.
I think all this splitting is throwing off the poll. Some people are talking about paying 200-400 for one room and use of a common bathroom, while others are talking about paying 1000+ for 2-3 bedrooms and a bathroom. I especially think the "I'm splitting the cost with my boyfriend/girlfriend" is deceptive, becuase it's not like a normal roomate situation where they'll kick you out if you're struggling with your bills, where they bring over random people that you have to tolerate, and where they cut off your acess to certain areas of the apartment (such as their bedroom, their kitchen cabinet, their section of the fridge). Following that logic, I'm only paying $500 for my half of the apartment I share with my wife. Or, better yet, I'm paying $0 since she's the one with the job and I'm just a student. Seems kinda silly.
I need some clarification here. I received the same email that's posted this afternoon. It does make the prospect of being admitted to GULC seem pretty bleak. But this is not a waitlist rejection, is it? Is there even such a thing? I've seen people on LSN state their status to be waitlist/rejected. Does this mean that they actually recived something that said that they have been pushed off the waitlist? Or are people confuesed about deferred-rejected? If anyone got a rejection letter after the waitlist, please clarify. Thanks
So, is there anywhere in Virginia, close to D.C., that has great schools, low crime and a buzzing nightlife for we younger, childless types that will have kids in the future? It would be nice to have nightlife and good schools in the same area.
This trifecta would be even better if on a Metro line.
