Oregon is my top school if it ends up being significantly cheaper than every ware else... I would like to go other places but if it come down to 150K at Santa Clara or USD or 60K at Oregon then im going to go with U of O every time... I go to Oregon State for my undergrad though so I find the prospect of attending Oregon physically painful in many ways.


Haha, I understand. First, just let me say that despite what you may have experienced at the Civil War, not all Duck fans are assholes. I went to UO for my undergrad and I've honestly been embarrassed at the way some some students behave, but we're not all like that. Secondly, my boyfriend is an OSU fan and he's lived in Eugene for a long time without going crazy, so it is possible!!!

I have a tier system set up for my choices.

Oregon is in the second tier behind three other schools. However, if Oregon offers me enough money and/or it proves to be less expensive (or I fall in love with it when I visit) it might vault into the top tier.

Falling in love with Eugene really depends on what you're looking for. Feel free to PM me if you have questions about campus, Eugene, etc. etc.

Oregon was like my third or fourth choice but my first choice rejected me...so it keeps going up the rankings! However, I'm highly skeptical they will admit me.

So is Eugene really as boring and bum-filled as people make it out to be? Or have I just spent too much time on TLS?

It was named the #2 vegetarian friendly small city. That is important to me and my family. (SLC is #3 on the list, where we live now)

The same goes for everyone, if you have questions about Eugene or UO, feel free to ask me. I did my undergrad at UO and I've lived in Eugene for 5 years now. I love it so I'm a little biased, but I know I would hate to be looking at moving to a town without knowing anything about it.

Sorry about your first choice. Hopefully you get in somewhere you'd like to attend! Good luck to everyone!

It really depends. There are a lot of bums here, I would say 99.9% of bums in Eugene are friendly and don't cause problems. They ask you for change, you decide whether or not to give it to them, and move on. There is the .1% that can be pretty obnoxious (i.e. the ones that party behind my fence at all hours of the morning), but they are definitely the minority. It also depends heavily on what part of town you live in/spend time in.

Oregon is up there for me. Do they like military applicants? It was the only school that required I send my DD214.

I never had an issue with bums in Eugene while I was in undergrad. I only really encountered them around the campus entrance at 13th and Kincaid and at the bus depot (but pretty much any bus depot has bums I've noticed). Does Frog still hang outside the campus selling "joke books?"

I can't really speak to that aspect of it because I don't know that much about the military applicant process. I did have quite a few veterans in my classes in undergrad, but I don't know how much that information helps you.

Have you heard the funniest joke book in the world? Jokes so funny you'll shit your pants!

Yes! Frog is everywhere.

Interesting question. UO definitely leans left but they do house an Army ROTC program so there is a military presence on campus (not very big, though).

Yes, Frog is still there. I fear he'll be down on material with Bush leaving office, but I'm sure he'll come up with something.

The bus depot is bad for bums, but wouldn't you guys agree that the vast majority of them aren't that bad in terms of bothering you or causing problems?

I'd agree. Its more of the punk kids that cause problems. Downtown at night is filled with punk kids although hopefully with the new downtown exclusion law problems will decrease. As a result of this, the economy and other factors, downtown eugene has little to offer and is filled with vacant buildings currently.

I applied to Seattle and L&C too. Seattle was nice enough to send me a status checker login today that revealed my waitlist status with them. That really doesn't bode well with my odds at UO or L&C. L&C is my #1 school.

I go back and forth on which is my #1 between Oregon, L&C, and Seattle. I got an acceptance to Seattle mid December, still waiting for Oregon to start reviewing I guess.

I'm hoping we each get into both. We can then commiserate trying to decide between the two. :D

Most likely because Willamette is in Salem. I applied though. :oops:
