geoduck as in Evergreen? I went to TESC for 2 years and loved it. Ended up having to transfer up to UW due to a bunch of professors retiring at once and classes not being offered b/c of it, but I thought it was an amazing place with awesome people.


Evergreen it is. C/O '08. But my wife is a Husky, so I can appreciate both schools



I would of been '08 had I stayed there. Tom Grissom was my favorite professor ever.

So... if your "sent" date is 2/15/2011, they probably won't even mail the damn thing until Friday or worse. So... don't despair if you don't get it really soon.


Noooooooo. Now I have to stalk my mailbox for the rest of the week. I went into review on 2/1 and they say they sent the letter on 2/15, so I'm hoping that the tight turnaround means they like my 169/No GPA/2+ years WE. Starting to get really hopeful...

Best of luck to everyone whose decision letters were just sent out.

lol! I guess that's what happens when you're excitedly flipping between tabs while working. I knew there had to be some logical explanation.

Dude, that sucks! I know how much you wanted this one. I was hoping you would get in. Seems like all splitters so far have been rejected or waitlisted. My top school was the same way,,, notorious for giving boosts to in-state residents, but hates splitters.

Well, between you and Adjudicator, I'm pretty much fucked at this point.

No really everything's gonna work out, because eventually you'll drown the memory of unfulfilled dreams. It's the American way. JK? :lol:

No for really really, use this to CRUSH it at whatever school and career path you choose.

Decision letter mailed 2/16, and from the looks of it I'm out. I guess a 177 just won't cut it for UW. Gotta have that 3.9+, I suppose. Georgetown will have to suffice...

Rejected? What was all that 1 in 1,000,000 talk? (I haven't been rejected...yet. But I can't help but capitalize on a sweet dumb & dumber quote). In the meantime, I continue to sit around nervously, desperately hoping that maybe UW loves me after all.

Sorry to hear that adjudicator - if anyone deserves it based on desire to attend UW, it's probably you.

My only hope is that my softs and Native American-ness can carry my GPA and total lack of regional ties. o.O

Edit: out of curiosity, you guys that are getting WL'd and rejected: what were your softs like? (Sorry if you've posted them before, but the thread is at 40+ pages now.)

I think your softs might help you a little more at UW compared to other schools. Pretty sure my softs carried me over the hump, no ties to the state and my LSAT is less than stellar.

this is blowing my mind. Props to UW for giving USNWR the big FUCK YOU re. rankings/numbers, but I wish their approach was more favorable to my own app (I dont think it will be)
