Congrats! I am on the waitlist at Seattle U and can wait about a month longer...
I am trying to decide between U of Montana and Willamette in Salem, OR.
I've been in Seattle for 2+ yerars and I LOVE it. I'll be so sad if I have to leave.
I live in Lower Queen Anne/Uptown and think it is the best place ever. I work downtown, so I can walk. It is a short bus ride to Seattle U. I walk to baseball games at Safeco. I'm close to Seattle Center and everything.
I also really like Ballard - if I were buying a house I'd look there, buying a condo I'd look in Queen Anne.
Interbay is between QA and Ballard and is less expensive - but it has more "industry/warehouse" and not as much as a view.
Belltown is close to everything but yuppie, trendy and expensive. I'm not coool enough to live there.
You might want to check out Greenlake/Phinney Ridge.
There is lots of stuff near Seattle U on Capital Hill, but for me it is too busy, and I want to be away from school when I am away from school.
It seems like the North/West areas are better than the South/East.
