Recommendations / Re: when should i ask profs for letters of rec?
« on: December 05, 2005, 06:01:21 AM »
As soon as possible!
After you've developed a positive and lengthy relationship, of course.

I have one professor I e-mail every now and then that I took a number of small classes with and am on a first-name basis with.

Another I only took one course with, but it was a small seminar and I did excellently, and did a number of different projects for, including leading a class session, term paper, etc. Ditto on the e-mail and first name basis.

I say as soon as possible because you want them to remember you and it gives you more of an opportunity to show you weren't just using them by continuing to talk to them afterwards(you never know when you might need another rec for something else) and LSAC will keep them.

No SC love either way for the rodent. :(

I should probably point out that there's no need for the apostrophe in "Nazi's," sincce nothing is being possessed.

I have, but...not...that...closely. Oh dear. Berkeley's my #1 choice, too, barring any miracles.

The newish campus of UCSB was built from an old military base, so believe me, I understand about ugly buildings. And no, I don't mind at all about them. But even at the worst, I'd LOVE to go there. I'm in love with BART and am tempted to write my PS about it. Also, I could get a job as an Apartment Assistant to pay my room & board while not increasing expected financial contributions. And, as a current RA, it goes along with my dream of eventually becoming a Judicial Affairs Officer for a University. :)

I'll be sad if I have to go to SC for LS, but I respect it as an institution. Now, they just need to hurry up and buy out the rest of the ghetto so my mom and I can move to San Josť.  :D

Wait List / Re: In off USC WL

I'm sorry, but Texas is going down. And as I've lived around USC almost all my life, I can tell you that USCers are fine if they stick in student areas around the campus. Everything is within walking distance and people bike a fair bit-though nowhere near the amount they do here at SB. :)

I have to admit, other than a secret desire to re-enact the Exorcist in my dad's robes, Georgetown is probably my least favorite T14, AND is in DC. Blech!

It is very cold (for Cali) at around 45 F outside. During the day, it's pleasant, but at night being near the beach makes it quite chilly.
