I'm going up to U-Dub in April to check out their public service program, and am very much looking forward to it. Though I've never been to the Pacific Northwest, it does have a certain draw, as an idea even. It's funny that, like me, the OP applied to schools as far from one another as UW and Pitt. We must like rain!
I'd love to join this LGBT club. It's the Legos, Gobots, Barbies, and other Toys group, right? I'll show up with an armful of toys.
