Does anyone have the link for that? I tried to search for it on xoxohth and was unable to find it. I've heard that it was amazing.
I wouldn't call it amazing, but I thought it was cute.
Ahhhh, haha...I watched Ga Eul Dong Hwa the summer I was in Korea (2001) in my dorm room w/ fellow KorAms, sobbing our fool heads off..haha. Actually, *cringe* I just got it on DVD...I'm such a sap!
I cried too, but only the first disc or two. Then the sibling thing started and I suffered through to the end. Guess I am not much of a romantic, lol.

Loyola's rep is MUCH higher in the L.A. area than Pepperdine for entertainment law although neither beat out the big TWO (USC and UCLA). However, if you were to come to California, I would recommend Loyola over Pepperdine.
Mine then is the Cum. GPA/College (3.58) or the Cum. Across GPA (3.41)?
The second one. The Cum. across includes all undergrad work, not just at your degree institution.
Received 15k/year at UIUC today. This knocks a ton of schools out of the running.
Would you consider it over UMich? Congrats!
Ok, is that the first time you've been around USD? Don't let the weekend fool you. The traffic there usually can be crazy. It's in an area where the 8 meets the 5 interstates. And the street in front of USD can get crazy too.
Hehe, yes, I am aware of the traffic on a non-weekend and since my dad works down there, I know a little bit about San Diego traffic. However, it does not hold a candle to L.A. traffic
Starresky, I'm in too--full tuition!! Are you seriously considering?
Wow, a full ride, CONGRATS!!! I was, but after reading up on their placement in California, I'd rather go to USD for about the same cost. It is a fabulous school and it literally pains me to turn it down, but I am pretty sure I will choose another school. I am going to have a definite answer by April 1st hopefully.
Oh my gosh, Snuvy, I hope you didn't think I was insulting UCSD. The programs are top-notch (which is why my sister is so interested in their engineering/biotech departments), no doubt about it. I regret not applying there for undergrad and several of my high school friends went there and loved it.
However, all the reasons why you said you liked it architecturally are the reasons why it didn't appeal to me, personally. I went to UCI which isn't big at all and even then I didn't like how sprawled out it was. My preferences are just not for huge campuses. Also, the architectural style that the school has chosen over the years just didn't appeal to me, but I in no way assume that everyone else would agree. I personally liked the style of the library and the Warren School which were very unique and funky but most of the other buildings looked like large warehouse/factories to me. Now my own undergrad was nothing to rave about either as far as appearances. Still, I went to a school where the whole campus was linked by one main ring road but I found myself lost at UCSD as I tried to move from one area to the next. These are only first impressions though and I don't think it is a reflection of the quality of education which I have always respected.
