I've been under review since 11/18. I am probably on the cusp for UW, but nonetheless, I am curious if anyone else has or was under review for a similar length of time?

Not sure, I'd be coming from Michigan and even with the $250 stipend it'd be a lot :/

I think I want to see if I get anywhere with the Gates app first.

Yes! I saw about 30 min earlier the app status changed with a section on deposit info so I was pretty hopeful!

Not sure if you all know this but after you get your acceptance you have to write another essay to be eligible for merit based aid, and the financial aid packets aren't released until mid/late March.


Oh yes, UW is notoriously hard to get merit-based aid from. They're in a unique position where Seattle is such a desirable place to live that I believe they don't need to offer as much financial incentive as other schools in less glamorous cities. As I said, I have low expectations about admission, let alone getting aid if I do get in, but it would round out my application cycle nicely if I were to be accepted.



I understand this argument, but I don't think it explains why UW gives less aid relative to other public law schools. Schools like ASU, UC Davis, and UCLA are all public and offer great scholarships. I think the explanation may be that UW focuses less on an applicant's numbers, and more on things like diversity/financial need/public interest involvement than do other top public law schools. I'm sure they have a decent amount of funds, but it seems like they have a different approach to allocation.


They do care about those other things, but those other things don't change the raw amount of money available, which isn't very high. Trust me, my fellow classmates and I would say otherwise if there were abundant funds, because you can rest assured those scholarship funds would be distributed aggressively to bring in admits.

There isn't some kind of magical explanation for why UW gives less money. It's pretty simple: there is less money. The causes as to why there is less money could be myriad, as compared to the public schools you mentioned, whether it's alumni donations or adequate state support, or the university itself allocating more money to the law school, or any number of things, individually or together.


My theories aren't theories, they are straight from multiple public and private discussions my classmates and I have had with our admissions office every year when we complain about our scholarship needs. There isn't a lot of money. Whatever scholarships exists are distributed based on many factors, and yes, other factors than merit alone. You can read the gnashing of teeth by many applicants the past two cycles who were above 75s and got little or no aid. I point out to them that they probably didn't give a strong indication they would actually show up to UW, so why would Dean Le waste money on them in lieu of a guaranteed admit who is closer to median?


I agree that UW would rather offer funds to those they deem likely to attend, but that alone doesn't explain why they have less money/don't offer merit aid to qualified applicants across the board, as their peers do.
