I love to hear that! I'm glad you are having a good experience there. I'm just not in love with the idea of leaving the east coast but it is too soon to even get that far
I'm looking into Env law and specifically their involvement with animal rights law.
god i hate that damn spider over the the left!
Yeah, the spider over the hand thing is a little, ahhh, how can i say....unruly or extremely distracting. but yeah, L&C is BEAUTIFUL. have you ever visited? once at L&C, you're not going to want to leave, i can assure you that. a lot of people who say, "i can't leave the east coast"...are totally in love with the area and don't want to ever leave. i lived on the east coast (miami, fl) most of my life and then i discovered the west. i don't want to leave. i've never lived in an area where at least 90% of the people that i run into are from the area. when i lived back east, everyone was from somewhere else. there are a lot of east coast transplants here in the PNW. just don't tell anyone you're from back east....
at least not in washington state...other washingtonians will know exactly what i'm talking about...
the residents (people in the PNW) want people to think that the weather is horrible...they don't want to share the beauty with more people. if you have any interest in environmental law--lewis & clark is the school. the courses, the faculty, and mostly the student and faculty interaction is world class. i honestly can't see myself anywhere else, and i praise the school because i strongly believe that it's a first-rate LS.
my avatar (i think it's called--the picture with my name) is a picture of me at mt. rainer (mountain in washington, about 2 hrs. north of portland). newsflash: most of the pacific northwest is this beautiful. well, the school is on the perimeter of a stunning park. it's a place where you'll probably find a lot of vegetarian, smart, interesting people. it's surprisingly wonderful. i highly recommend people visiting if they are torn between schools. it'll be an easy choice after the trip.
not to sound like a tour guide or a travel agent, wanting to make a sell...GO VISIT!!!! you won't be sorry you did.
