UW Gates Public Service Law (PSL) Scholarship

Postby cgphoto » Sat Jan 03, 2015 12:49 am

Didn't see a thread for this topic yet so I thought I'd start one. Did anyone else apply for University of Washington's Gates scholarship? I'm sort of wondering how many people apply for it and what the winners in the past have looked like

HEy, Im applying! You can see the bios for past winners on their website. Sadly it doesnt show LSAT/GPA or anything like that.

Hey, I'm considering it as well. It seems like many of the recent recipients have serious experience in international aid, programs like TFA or the Peace Corps, or have overcome really difficult obstacles. Hardly any of that applies to me, but hopefully I'll have a chance, and it doesn't seem like there's any downside to applying.

I would be curious to know how many applicants there are for this annually.

I ended up applying. Fingers Crossed!!

I figure last year they admitted 776... Probably 1/3 go to higher ranked schools without much attention so about 500... then 2/3 to 3/4 (Maybe higher) have no interest in the 5 year public service commitment. So lets say 125-150 applicants? and there are 5 spots... For a full ride those are pretty great odds.

Anyone know if we should expect decisions this week or next? The email that confirmed receipt of our applications said notifications would be sent out the week of Feb. 20, but I don't know if that equates to the week ending in the 20th or beginning this Friday...

My thoughts are we should hear between now and the end of the week. Who knows though. This whole process has shown me that schools are not great with deadlines.

The app deadline was January 15th. Sorry LawsRUs :(
