University of Washington Waitlist LOCI?

Postby Harry_Pluxen » Fri Mar 13, 2015 1:31 pm

Hey all,

I posed this question int he U of W thread, but it got lost in all the conversation & excitement. Here it is again:

I was just wait listed via e-mail at University of Washington. Oddly enough the Dean, in his e-mail, said no LOCI, additional documents or letters of rec, etc. are wanted...? Normally schools encourage LOCIs and supplemental documents, campus visits, etc. when you get wait listed, no?

Their website says they welcome LOCIs when you are waitlisted and I spoke with someone at their admissions office who said it was okay to send a LOCI. But that e-mail was VERY EXPLICIT not to send ANYTHING AT ALL.

Seems confusing and contradictory to me. Has anyone else had experience with the waitlist at U of W? I am very interested in attending, but don't want to upset the school by sending unsolicited material.

What should I do?

I was admitted off the UW waitlist last year. Definitely send a LOCI, and definitely get people to send follow-up letters of rec tailored to UW. Make it personal, and really show how much you want to be at UW. They don't like to admit people they don't think will matriculate, so don't give them the impression that you are going to come off the waitlist and then go somewhere else.

Hey everyone,

Any movement at all off the waitlist? I was waitlisted after applying late in the cycle (in February). Haven't heard anything yet. Thanks!
