Sorry if I am being nosy, but I am curious if you have checked into Seattle University? Although they are further up on the top 100 list, they have a good reputation in Seattle. It is a little expensive, but still a great school if you plan on practicing in WA. state. Just another option if you want to be closer to your parents. :)


Just checked back on this thread and just now saw this - sorry! I don't know all that much about Seattle U, but I also have a bunch of family on the east coast so I'm kind of leaning toward a school on that side. Or I might just say screw it and go to LA, where I know almost no one :) I'm not really picky about what part of the country I'm in, as long as it's a cool city.

Does anybody have a clue how many people they accept off of the waitlist?
on a recent visit to the campus I prodded a bit for this info. They said that there was no way of knowing how many spots would be available but in recent years they've admitted as few as 2 and as many as 18 from the wait list. Pretty grim outlook in my opinion.

Anyone else who got their application in the door fairly late and is still waiting In Review?

I'm not hoping for much this cycle, but it'd be nice. Probably going to retake in June and get in the door early this fall.

Yes, still waiting. In review since 1/31, app submitted on 1/14. And it's a long weekend! :?

I am hoping that someone on here can offer me some advice. I apologize if I am asking a question that has been discussed in detail. I was placed on the wait list. It stated in my letter:

Offers of admission are likely to be made to waitlisted applicants beginning in early May when we have a better idea of the number of incoming students who plan to attend this Fall Quarter. If you would like to remain on the waiting list, please e-mail lawadm@uw.edu by April 15.

So here is my question: Should my email be a LOCI or just a very simple reply that I would like to remain on the wait list?

Thank you for your help.

I practically harassed the lady in the admissions office about all this a few weeks ago on a class visit and here's what I got.

1) Only send updates via email.
2) The simpler the better. If you have a genuine update then include it, otherwise just say you're still interested.
3) Send an email every 3 to 4 weeks to indicate your continued interest.
4) It does make a difference if you tell them that UW is your top choice, but only say that if its true.
5) They will start looking at waitlist applicants in May but may keep sending out offers through September.
6) They don't typically admit a lot of students from the waitlist (2-18/year).
7) They reserve a small amount of scholarship money specifically for those admitted off the waitlist.

Hope that helps.

I called a few weeks ago and can confirm this. I was told the same things.

Same here, I hope they let in more than 2, UW is my top choice!

Hey, got wait listed back in January. I was so surprised to get wait listed so early, but I was pleased nonetheless because my LSAT wasn't exactly up to snuff. I really hope I get in off the wait list of course, but trying to be realistic :)

I requested expedited review of my scholarship application, got nada. No more residency waivers for students. Chances of attending UW are not high now.

3.3x / high 160s.

How long ago did you request? I requested that early this week and never even got an email back saying they would do the expedited review.

It looks like the residency wavier is only going away for people who are *admitted* after July; at least that's how I read the update.

Do you mind linking me to the update? Or was it in an email?

I requested the review right after the admit package came, beginning of February I believe. I also asked the Finance Head about residency for education purposes. He stated that the program was ending but the financial aid office is attempting to increase their need-based aid to offset the removal.

Is there still an option on the scholarship application itself to request an expedited review? I submitted mine a few weeks ago, and could not find a box to check along those lines (as the original e-mail had instructed to do). I have competing offers that are much more competitive than UW, and would like to know about my financial situation at UW as soon as possible. Advice? Do I e-mail the financial aid office to request an expedited review? Also, how long after requesting it did you guys hear back about your offers?

It looks like I misread; it only applies if you're *enrolled* before July, which no one admitted to the law school will be. I suppose it depends on what their definition of enrolled is. My bad.

You'll have to email them. Took about a business day or two.

I'm thinking of bowing out of this race. I'm from Seattle, want to practice in Seattle and have a great scholly from SU. Can anyone give me a compelling reason to try for UW when I'll have to pay significantly more (and be on the quarter system)?

Waitlisted about a month ago but still haven't submit a LOCI...

I just requested an expedited review as well. Did it take a day or two to get a confirmation email, or to get the scholarship offer?

Hoping that tomorrow, being the last day of February, they'll send out some decisions. We shall see.

Did they contact you via e-mail? My status checker changed to "Decision" today and I am wondering what to expect.

I was dinged today (wasn't planning on attending anyways, so not really heartbroken about it) and I was informed via email, at which point I checked my status checker and it said "Decision".

I'm still on "in review". Their twitter says decisions should be coming all week, so we'll see.
