When they say 7-10 days they are NOT kidding.

Who else is decking themselves out in purple and gold? I went with the purple off-set with white since I think it looks better but... who cares =]]
I'll be taking my first jog with a big W hat a bit later this week :D

Way to rub it in...


bdubs-

I just noticed that you have already been accepted to a lot of fantastic schools. Is UW even on the radar for you at this point? Likely to withdraw?

Ah not to worry my friend, you will get your letter!

Other threads have folks discussing how excited they are to attend schools, figured this thread could use some pride too. Hopefully you can join in very soon :D

Yes, despite the fact that I would like to be near family in Seattle I have a feeling I will be withdrawing from UW soon. The fact that scholarship money is almost nonexistent is a big part of that decision though.

The lack of $ seems to be a recurring theme this cycle from a lot of schools =/

Purgatory for me, Aggie. I expect to be there for some time.

I'm still In Review - I'm starting to feel like I'm already on the waiting list.

Man, you have beast numbers. I don't think they have a student in that school with an LSAT as high as you. They are probably just seeing how much $$$ they can scrounge up to throw at you.

Oh hush, you.

They've only been handing out acceptances for a few weeks (if that) besides the sporadic ones in December.

Relax bud. They'll respect that 99 %tile score.

:) It's funny that you suggest that, because I have considered that same explanation, although mostly as a joke.

But, it is true that high LSATs like mine are rare outside of the T14. I hope they are not doubting my sincerity in wanting to attend; I even wrote them a nice "Why X" addendum because I anticipated that problem.

And thanks, aggie; I take it from your enthusiasm that you are definitely attending? I hope I see you there this coming fall.

Barring a hail mary shot from NU or Boalt, I can say with 99.9% certainty I will be attending. I love Hastings (already sat in on a class...) but the UC system scares the shit out of me with all its instability (and California in general - I really like this state for everything except the economy/politics but those are really, really big detractors atm for me).

I love the decreased CoA for UCH --> UW also. I acknowledge that my chances for CA employment are definitely diminished from UW but I can live with the Seattle area.

Um, can someone just swing by and pick up my decision? Is there a pony express option?

Decision 1/25 and nothing in the mail. :evil:

+1. I think our numbers are pretty close too, Jake. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for us both.

There is also a decently large group of people who have been in review since 12/1. Right now it seems like people who are auto-admit are getting expedited through the process and everyone who is kind of in the middle is getting more thorough review.

Yea, congrats on that Minnesota acceptance BTW! It does scare me that UW has traditionally not rewarded splitters much.

My numbers are almost identical to yours snapdragon, so I'm going to be joining your club here... Keep any extra fingers you have crossed for me and I'll do the same :)
