Washington state has some of the worst unemployment in the U.S. actually.
Seattle U is only a drop in rankings, and ranking are bull. It's a great school, in many ways equal to UW and certainly a friendlier and definitely less pompous school. UW is significantly cheaper tho...
When was your letter dated Jackson? If it was yesterday, I ain't going to get the mail today.
Very sorry to hear it, Jackson. I've made the same point myself, that people in Washington are screwed because the only state school is so competitive. Most if not all of the other states with very competitive public schools at least have less competitive public alternatives. Good luck with your other applications. With your numbers you will get in somewhere good.
It rains A LOT in Seattle, but that is balanced out (in my mind) by the fact that it's green year-round. It's beautiful! And the mountains are incredible--you've got a mountain range to the east AND west. Yeah...I love the Pacific Northwest!
I'm sorry no, I don't think it's obvious. 7,000 x 3 = 21,000 I don't know about you, but that's still A LOT of money to me. A lot more than zero for darn sure.
