I have no idea about how easy it is to get a scholarship. That's pretty relative to situation.
Parking pass? now, lemme preach on that: i didn't get one for my half mile walk. Now I want one just cuz I'm lazy and driving is easier than walking. I will be getting one next year, but my commute will be long. I havent decided if I'll be getting the open lot or the 700 dollar one. the open lot is only 100 yds away. but I'm lazy....
Live by the school for convenience, not weather-worry. The "snow" is not a big deal. and if there is a decent storm, classes are cancelled.
