Want to practice in Seattle, so very nervous.


Hard to say w/o knowing your stats. Compare your stats to the 2016 admissions data on the first page of this thread. if you're above 75 in both, you're probably in. if you're at 50 in both, probably in, 25 not so much, splitter? UW isn't traditionally splitter friendly but if you look at LSN, there's a good amount of data to give you a clue.

GPA < 25, LSAT > 75. So splitter. Judging from LSN, seems like a good shot (*KNOCKING ON WOOD*), but I'm just shocked by the 24-hour turnaround on a decision...and then silence for the next few days. It's faster than for folks who have better #s than myself.


That does seem pretty hasty. I believe admitted students receive a phone call from a UW Law staff member, so as if you needed another reason to be on edge.

I was admitted last week and I received an email and a packet in the mail but no call. That might have something to do with me living on the East Coast though.

I'm in Portland and didn't get a call so I think they probably do it both via email and phone call.

Got my acceptance on Friday (12/16) night while watching Rogue One; interested by the prospect of moving to Seattle so I'm excited to go to the ASW!

Did anyone who was admitted choose to not do the supplemental essays? I'm curious how optional those are, or if they're kind of "required optional". Does it affect scholarship negotiations with them if you didn't do one?

Don't know about scholarship negotiations but I was accepted without doing any additional essays. Also, you have to write another 500 word essay when you get accepted. So I would think that would have the most weight placed on it.

Oh, bleh. Is that the additional application I've heard about for scholarship consideration?

Thanks btw, glad to know the supplemental essays aren't necessary.

Yeah it's definitely a little annoying to do but it's not too awful. It's pretty much just one 500 word essay and then a few quick other questions.

That's a lot of hoops to jump through for their relatively low scholarship offerings.

The hoops are there precisely because there's not a lot of money to go around. However, keep in mind that UW's in-state costs can be half of what comparable schools ask for.

Let it give you hope! My response took a while, and I think it was because my application was quite non-traditional with a dash of splitter.

Also, the online status checker and responses last year were fairly delayed during the holiday weeks. Hopefully you'll hear back with good results.

Thanks! I'm waiting on my second LSAT score, from Dec. I'm marked 'incomplete' due to that. How's the 1L life?
