lollll lander is my first choice haha. terry is my second choice. and haggett is probably my third. im trying to get the better ones that are more sociable/have more freshmen. how do u like lander? u a freshman?
haha thats a good priority list. Mine was about the same when I was applying. I'm a freshman right now. Lander is the all-freshman dorm. Because of this, it's probably the most sociable because everyone wants to meet new people. I've heard Terry is pretty social too, it's almost exactly like Lander (they are connected by the first floor) but not freshman-only so there are more upper classmen. Lander is pretty fucking cramped, there are a lot of triples and the rooms were built to be doubles so I'd say that's the only major downside. First quarter a lot of floors didn't even have open lounges because they had the overflow kids living in there haha but it's not supposed to be as bad next year. So yeah if you put Lander as your top priority you're almost guaranteed to get in, I don't know anyone who didn't. I like it and I'd say it's worth it, you probably won't want to dorm again like this by the end of freshman year but its worth it for the first year.
UW in general is dope, it's expensive (for me at least) but already I can tell you that you get opportunities here that you can't get anywhere else for cheaper. Especially networking opportunities. A lot of the teachers are well established in their fields (for example one of the finance professors in the business school just left last year to go be the finance minister of the opposition forces in Libya) and are really useful resources. Besides that, it's fun, there are some dope parties but you generally have to know the right people to get in. Are you planning on taking a FIG? Have you guys registered for your orientations yet?
