Portland is a fantastic city and I can't wait to move there. I live in Austin, TX right now and I have to say the Keep Austin Weird does not hold a candle to Keep Portland Weird.
I just received my acceptance to L&C today, and I am very excited. However, I obviously missed out on the festivities last weekend. I'm wondering if those of you who went, especially those who have already decided to attend, could provide some of the highlights of L&C that made you choose it. Anything you want to share will help. Thanks!
For me, it came down to atmosphere. Of all the options I have, most of which are similarly ranked or at least regional schools, L&C is easily the most comfortable. I feel like I could happily spend 3 years there. Additionally, being a Portland local makes it super convenient for me. That said, with the cost of school, I'm not going to let locality be the determining factor unless I KNOW I will be happy, comfortable and have strong opportunities. As it is, L&C is a great school with strong faculty, programs and comfortable facilities.
