I was wondering when we'll start hearing back about scholarships and financial aid. When was it for you?
I didn't receive any scholarships, but I believe they ask for you to write an additional essay to be considered for merit money. Make sure you don't wait on this as they start offering money before that deadline so there may not be any left by the time you apply. The deadline for that last year was April 15. If you are accepted they should send some information about that in the acceptance email.
UW has a reputation for being REALLY slow when it comes to getting financial aid info out. I remember some people still hadn't received their financial aid statements well until the middle of september just a few weeks before orientation.
Also the FAFSA deadline for UW is tomorrow so if you have any intention to go you should get that out now!
