Alright, to those who already live in Portland, how accurate is this article? http://www.budgettravel.com/bt-dyn/content/article/2005/06/10/AR2005061001402.html
Durnit, Lulz, I figured you were skulking around the UO admitted students forum or my facebook page or something and would call me out sooner or later. Yeeeah, I sent in my deposit to UO this morning & I'm withdrawing from LC and the UW waitlist... Eugene is just going to work SO much better for my little family. My husband has over a year's worth of work in southern Oregon and northern California, and we have connections in Eugene, and I really liked the feel of being adjacent to a BIG university (which is something new for me), so yep, I chose UO.We should still hang out next year, though, Lulz-- Eugene --> Portland = <2 hrs most days.I also might do a semester at LC for some enviro classes -- there's opportunities for student exchanges.
I'm in Michigan, and after living in the Midwest my entire life, I'm pretty psyched to get out.
I got an email today from L&C asking if I am still interested in the school. I was deferred back in February (I think, might have been January), and sent them an LOCI. They mentioned the possibility of an offer for admission being made, so it sounds like all of the seats are not yet full. L&C is still my top choice left, so I hope they review my file again soon! I also sent out my seat deposit to Marquette today. It would suck to have spent that $350 in vain, but I wouldn't care about losing that money if L&C throws me a bone. COME ON LEWIS AND CLARK!
