WTF SEATTLE

I know I'm not much of a "city" guy, but wow, if that's what I have to look forward to, count me out. Geez.


Yeah that doesn't happen much. Sorry you found one of the super crazies on the first go. That's part of living in a compact city though.



Haha yeah I know it was an odd occurrence. I actually visit a few times a year and this was certainly a rarity, albeit a wtf rarity. And to top it off, not ten minutes later, I witnessed some dude try to carjack someone's car by pulling a knife out and telling the guy to open his window. The guy just drove off...

Man, I have lived in Seattle my entire life and never seen anything like that.

Sketch =/= 1 attempted knife-stabbing + 1 attempted car jacking in the period of a few hours.

I lived in a *really* ghetto neighborhood in one of Forbes' "most miserable + violent cities" and rarely saw anything like that, even though objectively the rates of crime particularly violent crime were much higher than Seattle.

I guess it's possible but it just seems highly unlikely.

I went to school for years in the CD. I saw domestic violence once and crack dealing many times, but that is it. I've never seen a knife get pulled or a carjacking. That is some crazy ass shit.

Ditto the good luck!

Are there a fair # of people still at the 1/21 IR date?

I am just wondering out loud if there is a boost given to those who apply for the scholarship.


This friend is fresh out of UG, below both medians, and was already accepted? Is this friend URM by chance? When did he/she go into review?


He is a 161/3.4/OOS, applied October, accepted January. He's not crazy like the rest of us so he didn't check his status checker every 12 minutes, or at all, so he just knows when he got the acceptance letter. He may have written the most elqoquent PS ever, I don't know, but I did find it odd that he was accepted already with no real softs and his numbers, while others have been waitlisted/rejected with similar/better numbers.

Wow. Congratulations to him, but this example makes it seem like there is absolutely no logic to UW's admission process at all. Maybe they just throw darts at a board or something?

OR it could be that Gates scholarship applicants received some sort of advantage...in any case, good luck to all. Still IR 12/1 here.

I think every single day I wake up at 10:00am and check my status trackers only to realize that on the west coat it's still only 7:00am

Today is the day. I can feel it.
2/16 mailing and I live 1/2 a mile from campus...

Edit: After looking at LSN, rejection is imminent.

I finally got tired of waiting and went ahead and e-mailed the admissions office to see if they would release my decision via e-mail. They were nice enough to do so and I just found out that I'm in!!! Super excited about it :D I'm very interested in pursuing a joint JD/Masters of Marine Affairs through the School of Marine and Environmental Affairs. Is anyone else looking at a concurrent degree program? Best of luck to all still waiting to hear!

Just FYI for those who are wondering:
*Under Review: 12/1
*Decision: 2/9
*GPA: 3.79
*LSAT: 163
