It looks like there are budget rooms for about $70/night which makes it pretty reasonable especially with the travel stipend.


What is the travel stipend for you UW? Thanks!


$250 to assist with travel costs for students traveling over 150 miles. It doesn't specify if it's for flight/gas only or if it can be used for hotel as well.


Where did you find details on the stipend?


In the admitted student portal>enrollment checklist>admitted student day [last paragraph]

"Students traveling over 150 miles to join us may request a travel stipend of up to $250 to help with travel costs by emailing . . . (Please note that these funds are available only for students visiting Admitted Students’ Day on March 31 and cannot be transferred to another visit.)"

I'm planning to go. But it depends on what time my flight gets in. But seriously, does anyone want to split a hotel???

I think 2-3 weeks is average. It could be longer if you're on the bubble.

In yesterday evening as well!! Applied 1/23, UR 2/6--- reverse splitter, OOS, strong softs. Thought it was kind of a reach for me, so feels great! I usually stop incessantly checking my inbox after 7 EST on Friday, figuring the cycle for the week is over (forgetting that I have a few WC apps out). Got the e-mail at 7:30!

It appears so--- the admitted students site says scholarship decisions will be rendered "the following week" after 3/15.

Regarding residency for tuition purposes, if you're OOS and not a veteran who last separated from a period of active duty within 3 years, it looks like you must work over 30 hrs/week while in school to be come eligible for in-state tuition. Where as in California, I believe residency for tuition purposes is established by physical presence and establishing intent for 366 days prior to the action of applying for in-state tuition for an upcoming term. Damn WA, why so mad?

Anyone disagree? Any loopholes?

I think I discussed WA's education funding issue earlier in this thread at some point. Basically we have no income taxes, a tremendous decrease in available revenue earmarked for education since the recession, and some poor educational outcomes. So even tuition dollar matters. The only way to get IST is to defer and go live there for a year before matriculating, for a "non-educational purpose". So even getting a master's without working 30 hrs/week won't be sufficient to get it by Fall 2018.

CA's university system is so big that it doesn't have these problems.

And by "we", I mean my parents, because I'm OOS now despite having lived there for a decade prior to college.

Second this. UW Law doesn't decide who gets residency, the university's Residency Classification Office does, and they are notoriously strict, as experienced by my undergrad classmates and law school classmates who went to UW from out-of-state. Your best bet is to hope for scholarship money that will knock your tuition down to the in-state level, and then once you're here, use your lack of income for 1L year to qualify for the university's graduate student grant ($9000/year) for 2L and 3L year.


So does everyone in law school qualify and receive the grant?

Madam Cakewalk.

And I would be super down to get an airbnb if enough people were interested.

What better way to get to know our fellow classmates.

Let's get weird.

+1 this... I was even considering trying to defer for a year to get in-state but with the grant/scholarship money?? I could probably work around it. Any info on where to find more details on this? Also could anyone speak to finding further scholarships/grants for 2L/3L?

Regarding resident status: I have lived in Washington for 30 years. I noticed on my 'Enrollment Confirmation Instructions' form that I was listed as non-resident. To rectify the situation, I spent the better part of an an hour talking to:
(1) UW Law admissions office (unhelpful & unsympathetic);
(2) The UW Registrar's Office (helpful);
(3) UW Residency Office (confusing);
(4) UW Law Admissions office;
(5) UW Residency Office;

All this only to find out that apparently EVERYONE admitted for Fall 2017 will be considered non-resident, until proven otherwise, despite filling in a section on our LSAC applications for just this purpose. Residency office directed me to the 'Residency Questionnaire http://depts.washington.edu/registra/forms/UoW1819.pdf, which will be required, along with some attachments, in order to be considered a resident, and thus to pay in-state tuition. HUGE PITA!!

Anybody else dealing with/annoyed with this?

Anybody do the Gregoire fellows essay? There isn't much information out there about it since it's a relatively new program. Is this mostly merit based, diversity/merit, or largely diversity alone?

I also wonder how broadly they consider diversity (i.e., would any of the following suffice: lgbtq, 1st generation student, immigrant, disabled, etc.?)
