FWIW I called admissions admissions yesterday as I, too, am still UR 12/1. The lady told me that the admissions committee only started reviewing apps on 1/17, when they got back from winter break. As this was MLK day, I took that to mean 1/18. When I said that I know of people who were admitted quite a while ago (from this thread), she said that these were basically auto admits, namely people who did not need to go through the entire admissions process but who at first review were offered admission. So, she said that since they have only been really looking at apps for about a month, there was absolutely no guarantee as to when I would hear anything but that it would def. be before 4/1. She advised me to submit my fafsa by the end of this week and wait.... like I have been doing since November
I guess I just don't quite understand what auto-admit means at UW then. Maybe in-staters? I feel like I have strong numbers for UW, spent my UG in Washington AND this is my second time applying. I just don't get it. It's frustrating because I would like to keep them at the top of my list...
Also, I'm still mad that they rejected Adjudicator. That was just wrong
Yeah, UW has been very strange about auto-admits. This info does make sense a little though, when you consider all the admits have so far been people on the upper end of the numbers spectrum or people with ridiculously good softs. Sure, there have been a handful of rejections and waitlists, but I imagine this is mostly due to splitter-hate, yield protection, and perhaps non-residents. If you look at the LSN graph so far you can tell that there is probably a pool of middle and lower numbered applicants that haven't gotten decisions yet.
That being said, if they really did not start looking at applications until 1/18, they should NOT have listed anyone's status as "In Review - 12/1."
I guess I will just have to be patient and start worrying when I start seeing more people in my number range getting the boot (or wait list).
