I think it's like... 15 bucks. Free if you go to the restaurant, but you're paying for it with the inflated food costs.

Oh, sheesh, that's fine. The dang plane tickets were over 1000 bucks, no sense skimping on 50 bucks for lunch/dinner. Most of it is being paid for by people other than me anyway, so what the hey =-]

Thai Tom? That's the one every UW student seems to fall in love with. I missed the appeal, but every other person in the U-District seems to swoon over it.

There is Thai everywhere here. Now the question is... How much pho do you had in the past?

Edit: my fav thai is Golden Singha just south of the Space Needle, across from the tv studio that ABC pretends is a hospital for Grey's Anatomy.

I did not know that. So that would push the costs to around an extra $64,000 over three years. Is UW worth the saved money compared to the opportunities offered by a T-14?


Sorry to burst the bubble, but I remember looking this up when I was applying.

WASHINGTON STATE RESIDENCY

Tuition and fees vary depending on whether a student is a resident of Washington or not. To be classified or reclassified as a resident for tuition and fee purposes, a student must establish a bona fide domicile in the state of Washington for purposes other than educational for the period of one year immediately prior to classification as a resident. A nonresident student who is enrolled for more than six credits a quarter will be presumed to be in the state of Washington for primarily educational purposes. Such period of enrollment shall not count toward the establishment of a bona fide domicile of one year in this state, unless the student proves that he or she has, in fact, established a bona fide domicile in this state primarily for purposes other than educational.

That makes a big difference in price.

On my list are:

Phaythai Cuisine, Thai Curry Simple, and Jhanjay Vegetarian Thai. They have good reviews on Yelp! and I do indeed love Pho as well :D

OK, except the 2L/3L waiver negates the need for employment. All you have to do is establish "bona fide domicile" crap and you receive in-state tuition without being an in-state "resident" proper. I've already been over this a half dozen times with people from UW including a conversation on the phone w/ a Fin Aid guru there and she went line by line with me on it.

Yeah we know you can't establish residency the regular way. But they can grant residency equivalence. Someone described it earlier in the thread.

I know I did. Someone else might have, too.

It is pretty difficult to grasp at first. WA state is pretty crazy w/r/t residency, and I thought moving to CA was freaking hard!

Sorry was replying to the other guy. I just hate dealing with giant quotes while I'm in my iPad.

That's weird. Then why do they have this on their website? It makes it seem like you can't get in-state if you're a student. Not helpful, UW

Here ye, here ye, UDubbers.

In-state tuition is easily achievable. Residency is not. Luckily, to save moolah, in-state tution is all you need (makes sense!). Therefore, UW is quite cheap after the first year if you are not currently a resident.

Fin. :)

Well i'm sure they'd rather you pay out of state :o . The state is running heavy in the red.

Heh, it is VERY confusing, I know. I asked her that myself and she gave a virtual shrug over the phone.

3 years tuition for WA res is ~75k while 3 years for an out of state that gets the tuition waiver for 2L/3L is ~87k. Not a terrible sticker price.

As far as law degrees go...

Sure beats the 44k a year I was looking at for Boalt / Hastings.

Now the question is... Who here is going t get cash from UW. They haven't announced scholarships yet, have they? Trying not to sound cocky, but my 169/evergreen plus the super fast turnaround (two weeks from IR to mailing) makes me pretty sure good news is in the mail... But some scholly love would seal the deal.

Immaterial for a lot of us, because part of the 2L/3L waiver is that you cannot receive state-based aid (schollies and grants...) while receiving the waiver.

Thankfully, the 50% veteran tuition reduction does not count :D

Not sure, but if you look at the applicant from the 09 cycle on LSN there were only 7 people who listed getting money and 4 of them were URM. I think UW is pretty stingy with scholarships.

Isn't that the case w/ most state schools, even the flagship schools? I mean, Hastings, Davis, LA and Berkeley are similarly really stingy (For CA).
