I was accepted as part of the 2/7 batch, but never received an e-mail about financial aid. Is there anything important in the e-mail that I am missing? I've already submitted my FAFSA.

I am.


I was thinking about it too... But I heard the Foster school is even more competative to get into then the law school (they really want applicants with substantial work experience). And since I haven't been in the workforce that long, I don't have a very good shot.



Yes, they prefer work experience. But I have very little work experience and a pretty good GMAT score, but I still got offered an admission interview. (They go from app - interview - official admission.)
Granted, my great LOR relevant to business school probably helped a lot.
But they really do look at your apps beyond the number of WE years. :)

EDIT: By very little WE I mean little to none. I'm still in undergrad, and did not work during semesters.


Were you applying for the JD/MBA joint degree or just full time MBA program? I'm just wondering whether they evaluate joint applicants any differently... I've heard stories of people who owned their GMAT, solid GPA, great WE, and outstanding LOR (by outstanding I mean the Senior VP at UW) and they still got rejected for the full time MBA... SCARY

Good luck to all!


That's awesome - way to go! UW has just made it impossible to divine what they're doing... Either they're just doing this to mess with us, or there is some greater plan and reasoning behind all the madness or the person who updates the status checker sometimes doesn't do it. :D

jiggawhut, does it say whether or not a decision letter was sent in your 'mailings' section of the status checker?



Curious as well.
Mine says Decision 2/1 and still nothing in my mailbox. Nothing new in the Mailing section either.
WHY?!?! :twisted: :evil:

I've checked my UW status 3 times since waking up 2 hours ago.

It's going to be a long week.

Sigh, weird. Mine says In Review still, but has a Decision Mailed in the mailing section. I have begun to think that us 2/10 DLS are a ding batch and the 2/9 DLS are an admit batch. I have no reason to think this other than pessimism.

EDIT: hey now, I'm in the 2/10 batch! I have a 170 and a 3.2... I definitely didn't don't expect to get dinged from UW since I've gotten into all the T14 schools I've heard back from so far...

ArchRoak, I'm with you. I'm in the 2/10 group and I think they are purging the low-gpa, high-LSAT applicants. My reason for this, other than the fact they don't like splitters, is that I haven't heard from the Gates Scholarship folks. Maybe it is too soon, but they said they would keep me notified as they processed my Gates app and I haven't heard anything.

Yah, it seems all of us in the 2/10 batch are OOS splitters.

@xtine: I hope you're right. I have also had relative success in the T14. Dinged at a bunch, but in at two. However, with schools that are notoriously splitter unfriendly, I havnt had much luck.

I'm an OOS splitter (169/3.32) who went IR 1/24 and I didn't get DR 2/10...

Of course, all of this really means NOTHING. Really...

True. I've been through MAD wait times this cycle. I'm assuming they're just deliberate. Plus, it's kind of a reach anyway for me, I think, as a 168/2.75, even w/URM status. So I'm trying to be chill about waiting on the school I applied to FIRST being the LAST school to let me know anything, haha.

Would you mind sharing/pming numbers?

I feel like I'm on the wait list as well. They just haven't told me officially yet.

Accepted via snail mail today!!! Complete 11/10, my status checker still says IR. I had to read it twice because with my numbers I thought for sure I would get either wait listed or rejected.
