I think that is an excellent choice :D

Seriously though, I don't see UCLA being worth twice as much as UW in very many situations. 200k in debt would be pretty tough to manage on anything but a biglaw salary.

Also, did you fill out the UW scholarship application and send in the bio? You could get something. They have pretty generous tuition waivers for residents if you have a low EFC on your FAFSA, I think last year people with 0 EFC automatically got $8,000 knocked off of their tuition. So it could turn out to be an even better deal.

I'm doing the application over the next 5 days or so.
I can check all of 2-3 boxes for the scholarship categories (who would have thought being from a rural background helped?)

I have a FAFSA EFC of like 5,000, which is pretty high, so I doubt they'll give me need money. Did you apply for aid when you deferred last year? If so, did you get any money from fafsa, and with an EFC of what?


No my EFC was too high last year (about the same as yours), and I didn't get any other need or merit based aid. Luckily though, my wife and I had a baby last year and made a little less money, so my EFC is only $400 this year and I can check one more box. I'm hopeful, but I'll be happy even if I don't get anything, in-state is still a pretty good deal.

Wha? What UW scholarship app? Are you only sent this once you're admitted?
Here's to hoping...

no you need to get it in before april 7th. the app looks short, maybe 8 questions, but one of them asks you to write a 500 word essay, so if you haven't started, it might be a good project for this weekend.


I think you do only get it after you are admitted. They said everyone would get decisions by April 1 (hard to believe at this point), so you would still have a couple days to get it done even if you are in the last batch.
