Newberg? Do you own a house there? If you don't, then you are most definitely crazy. That'd be at least an hour commute, right? Most of our life will be consumed with school, especially the first year. I'd at least get a cheap rental to crash at during the first year or two!


Apologies, my concept of distance was off. I checked googlemaps and it looks like it would be about 30-40 minutes. Does that sound more accurate? If you own a house, don't worry about it. If you're renting, I'd guess you'd want to move closer, but you probably have other factors to weigh. Still, I think it would be good for any full time student to live near campus...



Was Conky feeding you bad information? He tends to do that.


Ha. He must have been. Time to throw him in the swamp.

Anyone received any news from Lewis and Clark today? Has anyone else been able to log into the admitted students section?

Anyone going to the Admitted Students thing on March 19 have any suggestions for hotels? I wasn't sure if I was going to attend, even with the $400 stipend.... for many reasons. But of course, now that tickets have gone up $125 from yesterday, I've changed my mind. Grrrrr!

So any (inexpensive) hotel suggestions besides the four they recommend?

+1 on the hotel suggestions. On the one hand, i'd like to stay one they recommend (partly 'cause I think it would be cool if a lot of people going to the ASD were in the same hotel) but that $400 would stetch farther with a cheaper hotel....

Priceline hotel negotiator is the way to go.

you can bid on hotel rooms (so you don't know what you get till you've already been charged).

for example-

I bid 50 dollars a night for a 3 star hotel in downtown portland.

I won, and now get to stay in a hotel that normally costs 100 dollars a night for 50 dollars! :D

The Phoenix in Lake O is nice enough, close, not too much $. Crowne Plaza in Lake O is same distance, and offers discounts to LCers. If you can find a hot deal at The Jupiter or Hotel Modera, do it, for sure.

Since L&C has the shuttle that runs to Pioneer Courthouse Square and their downtown clinic, you can get up to the campus pretty easily from anywhere as long as you are willing to use the MAX or buses. Beats paying for a car/gas/insurance or biking in the drizzle anyway.


I wouldn't count on the MAX too much, to be honest. SE isn't too far off, Sellwood bridge wont go under the knife for a few more years, and the Ross Island is fine, so long as it isn't rush hour. Also, Powell houses the best beer in Portland at HUB. You'll need cold pints after class, guaranteed.

I've mostly lived in the area since '97 and I've never had any problems with the MAX. Prior to the Green and Yellow lines there were definitely huge parts of PDX that were forgotten, though. Buses are spotty, especially with the cuts TriMet has been making to routes.

Beer is what Portland does best! We have breweries EVERYWHERE and they are constantly fiddling with new beers and recipes. The Rogue Hazelnut Brown is one of my alltime favorites. I haven't had a chance to try Rogue's whiskey or rums.

I'll defer to you on the MAX - I have had a few horror stories, but I also didn't use it too much - being close-in SW and Sellwood, and therefore not close enough to use the MAX. The LC shuttle, The Raz, as its known, while good, is also space constricted, and there are always tons of UGs on the bus. Just FYI.

+1 on beer. As for Rogue Hazelnut Brown...so damn good. If you haven't tried it, you need to do "The Snickers." Its a black and tan with 50% Hazelnut and 50% Rogue Chocolate Stout. It is ambrosia. Also, for those of you there for ASD (I may or may not be, depending on $$$) try out HUB, Rogue, or Horsebrass for beer. Seriously.

There's a ton of Rouge products out here in Chicago. I also enjoy the Hazelnut, and of course the Dead Guy Ale is on tap at a lot of places around town.

Strangely, of all the local brews, Rogue seems to have the best distribution network. When I go to the East Coast I can find Rogue Dead Guy and a few others at liquor stores and occasionally I'll find Widmer Hefeweizen at supermarkets.

rogue's label art is better, and Widmer isn't that good of a hef, imo

I am currently a 1L and live in SW, about 1.5 miles from school. (Between spring garden and taylors ferry). I dont have kids, but I do have two dogs, and we are renting a ranch house here with a nice yard. Its actually not a bad place for kids, as there is both a private and a public elementray school within walking distance. In addition, my neighbor specifically moved to this area from another area of Portland because the schools in this area are the best. There is also a highschool within a mile and a nice park for walking. (Marshall Park)

I do like Multonomah's village as well. Not sure if you can walk your kids to school there, as I don't know where the schools are in that area, but there is cute shops you can walk to and the nice Gabriel park.

The housing on this side is a little bit more expensive than Sellwood, but it is much easier to get to school. I can walk, bike, bus, or drive. The shuttle to Sellwood was discontinued last year, and doesn't appear to be starting back up next year. In addition, biking from Sellwood has a huge hill, so the only way to get to school from there would be drive. Of course that may not be of concern to you. Sellwood does have pretty cute houses and good walkability.

I wasn't declaring quality in that particular post but compared to most beers I could find in Florida (where I was) Widmer Hef was like striking gold. Widmer is pretty much the girl next door of Hefeweizens. Franziskaner makes a really good dunkel and a lot of places downtown have it available. You can burn a lot of money in Portland just trying all the seasonal beers that each brewery makes.

Just called the admissions office. The admissions officer said my file is currently in review and I should have a response next week. I've been "complete" several times, the most recent of which was on Feb 5th. I have been able to log into the admitted students section since early this week...

Does anyone else love how they send you a big white packet--containing a why Lewis and Clark booklet-- after you have already applied?

I tried their whiskey, gin, and rum last time I was there and have to say it is pretty disappointing. They do beer well but I can get a lot tastier spirits for a lot less than the $50/bottle they are asking simply because its "artisan." Just my .02.

It makes perfect sense, even after you've applied, and even after you've been admitted. They still have to sell you on them, after you've sold them on you.

I loved getting that one. I got all excited that I might have gotten a November acceptance letter! I have to say that they're somewhat heavy handed with the mailings. So far I have 3 big envelopes, 4 small envelopes, 4 e-mails from admissions, and 2 e-mails from admitted students & student groups. That doesn't include replies to my queries. This is all correspondence they've initiated. I'd like to hear what some of the rest of you are getting :lol:

I only got the one pamphlet with my fee waiver. After that, I got my acceptance and then since then I've gotten two e-mails from admitted students stuff but no actual mailings. Maybe they send stuff to keep themselves in your mind since they don't want everyone to commit elsewhere, but thats pure speculation. Good luck on your cycle!

Come to think of it, yeah, I hated the "small envelope" mailings before I'd received my acceptance. Each time I thought, OK, this is it...very inconsiderate of them, for sure. Same thing with the big ones - I thought they were acceptance packages (although I seem to remember only one of those).

Just wondering if anyone here is planning on starting in the evening program. My tentative plan is to do that and then maybe switch to day.
