This. I will miss the UW thread the most when the inevitable doom comes upon me :( Y'all are a great group of people. Maybe I should just take my scholarship to SU and try to be cool.


How much did you get from SU? If you want the NW, L&C is a far better school. But it isn't Seattle, that's for sure. Hopefully UW just works out though!

$17k / year from SU.. I actually already withdrew from L&C, only $5k/year there. If UW doesn't work out, I'll probably stay on this side of the country and just visit y'all a lot :)

It makes total sense to me that someone would switch "decision letter sent" when someone else didn't switch the status to "decision" and when someone else hadn't even had the thing signed and sent yet. And they could mix that up in any order.


lolyup! I'm still "IR 1/21" but my letter was "sent" 2/16 :mrgreen:


+1 here. I guess I'll stop stalking the mailbox.. if decision letters 2/15 haven't gone out yet then I doubt the 2/16s have!


Snapdragon, I'm really pulling for you. I've got almost identical numbers, so if you make it then I'll have good reason to get my hopes up. And, if you don't make it, then just lie to us and say you did so I can keep my hopes up :D

It was supposed to snow last week when I was visiting the LS and instead it was sunny, but chilly.

Meteorologists... the only job where you can be wrong 100% of the time and still get paid.

I've been watching from afar but want to go ahead and jump in this thread and say good luck to everyone waiting! My cycle has been turrrrrible so far so UW is more or less my top choice at this point.

I applied 11/4 and am IR 1/21. Stats - 169/3.4/urm/out of state

Anyone who has been accepted and applied to the Gates PSL scholarship hear anything about the status of your scholarship application?

I emailed UW about a travel stipend and the existence/possibility of merit-based scholarships and haven't heard anything. Anyone heard anything about either of these two issues? I've already heard the rumor that UW doesn't give out merit-based scholarships, so that was what I was trying to clarify.

I haven't heard a peep. Not really holding my breath, though.

They are very tight-fisted w/r/t merit aid, that's for sure. I wouldn't say that they absolutely do not ever give out merit-based aid, but I'd say it's pretty darn rare.

I've obviously lived under a rock until today- I didn't know about the residency 2L/3L waiver until doing some more research into COA. Wow!! UW just became a lot more reasonable in my book.

There are some stips, obviously... but it looks attainable.

Awesome, thanks for posting. I agree that it seems doable as well.

Oh great. Back to stalking my mailbox as soon as I stopped. I guess the 2/15 letters were sent out yesterday.

Still in review (1/24). Since I have marginal numbers for UW, I hope this is a goodish sign that they haven't already rejected me. Perhaps there is something about me that they find somewhat attractive. I knew it was good idea to include that nude body shot.
