When I started this process, UW was my #1 target school. While I still plan to practice in Seattle eventually, I also plan to w/d from UW as soon as my seat deposit is confirmed elsewhere. Good luck to all -- hope more emails arrive soon.
Congrats kingsfield! From lurking around in other threads, it sounds like you're the living proof that softs matter a lot.
Yes ... my experience implies that law schools indeed consider the entire application. I'm sure there's a numerical threshold below which the softs can't make a strong enough argument -- in other words, the school will not be moved by a great story if they have any doubt about the ability to handle the curriculum. But so long as a threshold is met, they are indeed reading everything you give them and making a holisitic assessment.
Hope you get what you want out of the process -- good luck!
