I think the one in Seattle is usually more crowded. Those 2 are the only Chipotles that I've been to. They are both near large university campuses, so maybe that has something to do with it.

The UW alumni association always buys about a thousand burritos during finals week every quarter, and gives them out to students studying in the library. They cut the burritos in half first, though.

Does anyone know the age/circumstance limit for getting back on your parents' health insurance? I'm 25 and have been off their insurance since 2007, is there a chance I can go back on it again once I become a full time student? Thanks!


I'm not 100%, but I think at 25, you can't go back on as a dependant/student. You are probably just as well off looking at private insurance plans. I'm probably going to do a private plan rather than the student plan that UVA has...I want to avoid University Health Centers, and the price is usually about the same...if not better.

I'm 22 and my mom said I got kicked off her health insurance; maybe it's a company by company thing.

My Mom's plan is with Anthem and they said I get kicked off at the end of the year that I turn 23, which means that I need to get my own insurance come January.

Lol...My university health center refused to admit me when I was practically dying during finals (I was so sick that I couldn't stay awake more than 4 hours at a time), and they mistakenly told one of my friends that he had AIDS.

Yes, I applied through their website. Then you can either electronically sign the promissory notes using your FAFSA pin if you have one, or have them mailed to you to sign and send back. It only took a few minutes.

At my undergrad., we always referred to the health center as "the death center."

Posting from my iPod in a Virginia motel. Just closed the deal on a comfy Arlington Court unit then went exploring. It's graduation weekend so the chairs and everything are all set up. If my hotel wasnt so far from Cville I'd go back and check out the bars.

My university health center was only good at one thing: prescribing Vicodin like the stuff was an elixir. I got it for a sore throat once.

At mine, the running joke was that all the doctors did was ask if people were pregnant. Sprained knee? Pregnancy test. Nasty cough? Pregnancy test. Testicular cancer? Pregnancy test.

Making good on this, when I met my doctor to try and figure out persistant migraines I was suffering from, my first question: "You're not going to ask if I'm pregnant, are you?"

His response: "You do realize that we're real doctors, right?"

I felt bad, especially after he was excellent and effective and timely and cheap :(


Mine does this too.

My mother's policy allows me to stay on until I am 25 as long as I am a full time student, which is nice but I certainly don't think it's the norm.

Any suggestions about loans? I'm going to be taking care of the paper work once I graduate on Sunday. Wahoowa!

As students do we get to use the university health center? Somehow I had the opposite experience of everyone else and my undergrad's health center was fabulous. If so, if we have our own insurance (I can stay on my parent's as a full-time student until 25), do you think we can use the health center still?

I'm going to do my loans this weekend finally - is the consensus still that Discover is the best lender?
