My decision was mailed 3/7 but I still have no letter. Also, does anyone know how UW rejects people? Is it by mail or email?

Last year I was in Spokane and it took FOREVER for my rejection to get to me (5 days IIRC).

Haha yeah I did. Though I probably should cut them a little slack because I took the December test. Honestly, I'm feeling like I probably got WLed which stinks. Chicityteacher gives me a little hope as one 12/1er who is in!

Honestly, I'm not sure where I want to go! I have a really good support network in the NW and UW is relatively cheap. I'm not sure if I want to work in Seattle/the NW but if I do, UW is the clear choice. I don't really have a geographical preference besides not hot. If I actually got a scholarship too...

I hear ya! Having a support network is AMAZING. I hate that I live in the middle of nowhere so there is no law school near my support network. But I think I would still love UW :)

Plus, Seattle is freaking awesome and gorgeous. I've only been in the U-District a little, but it's really awesome. Seattle is also really dog-friendly which is huge for me.

I love the school but I just wish the UW's budget wasn't dependent on Olympia's budget. The state made many mistakes budget wise, and higher education was their piggy bank. During my last two years of undergrad, the UW experienced a significant drop in their quality of education because of the amount of lay-offs, program cuts, and loss of class options, all the while tuition kept rising. I know the law school got a pretty large cut as well, and so they have to be stingy with scholarships.

Same ol' song and dance for basically every state school, though. My alma mater had the same thing happen. Another 8% tuition hike on the horizon to boot.
