only if you are willing to state that UW is your #1 choice and you will forego all your other acceptances to go to UW.
if you do anything less, the school might just interpret the name dropping as your way to see if you can get money and not consider UW as a serious choice.
But why would I borther just accruing scholarship money if I had no intention of going?
meant more like, seeing how much money you would get from UW and comparing with other schools' aid, then making your choice.
Yeah, well that's what I do want to do, so I hate to mislead them.
