extrasunnyincoming freshman at uw seattle, on the off chance that any of u guys are too hmu
bread_birdI'm a current freshman. Not looking for a roommate but hit me up if you want info on housing and such
extrasunnydope, how many days a week do u get on average? do u have any tips for time management?
bread_birdDepends on class schedule. This winter I was getting 2-4 days/week. Now I'm in the entry class for my major and I'm lucky if I get 1 day/week.
As for time management, it's all about priorities. I assume yours are school and skiing. It's possible to get your work done and also shred and party on the weekends, but it might mean flaking on your friends during the week so you can finish homework.
extrasunnydamn yeah i’ve heard it’s really tough to get into certain majors, are you tryna get into foster by any chance? that’s my ultimate goal
bread_birdI'm trying to get into the design school right now.
I know a few people that are in Foster, but they were direct admits so I can't tell you what the application process is like. My impression is that Foster is only slightly less competitive than CSE.
You should think about whether or not you can afford to burn a year of tuition on the off chance you don't get into Foster. Have a solid backup major or be ready to transfer schools so you don't end up wasting any of your money.
If you are willing to put in the work, you won't have a problem getting into any of the competitive majors. Just know that you might not be skiing or partying as much as you want to during your first year.
extrasunnythanks for the advice dude, besides foster i’ve been looking at informatics or econ, maybe even architecture. also are u involved in greek?
