Your status checker had a date under "mailings"?

Every time I check, I'm not sure if I want it to be blank or not... I'm leaving on Saturday for my spring break backpacking trip. No phone, no email, and definitely no mail. Bad timing. Hahha.


Good luck to those who are!

I have been watching this forum for the past 2 months...thank you all for the amazingly nerve-racking commentary. I am unbelievably still in the hunt for UW, I don't think I am the only one, but have below 25% LSAT and GPA. I was in review 1/21 and it has been stuck there since.

Anyone else still holding on with below 25%s?

Good Luck Everyone!

Anyone admitted having a bit of trouble with the residency process?

+100.

Whenever I do go blank, I'm considering calling the office to see if they'd just tell me my decision over the phone. Another 3-5 days could make a real difference this close to the deposit deadline. Think they'd go for it?

Are they requiring you to fill out the residency questionnaire (or whatever it is) and go through that whole process because "your application did not automatically qualify you as a resident for tuition purposes?" I was shocked that they required me to do that after being automatically considered a resident last year; I didn't even submit a new application this year I just deferred my admission. Turns out that because I deferred and they didn't have a new application, they couldn't verify that I remained in the state for the last year. That is silly for a variety of reasons that I won't get into, but I did eventually get in touch with the director of the residency classification office and got him to evaluate my file early, rather than through a 4-6 week process not beginning until April, and was determined to be a resident.

Similar to my situation.

I'm in school in Canada, so they want to know that I'm still a WA permanent resident. The issue that might arise is that schools in Canada give you cheap tuition if you are a Canadian Citizen. No worries about residency, I could live outside of Canada for years and decide to go and get the cheap rates (that's why so many dual citizens go there for college).

So I technically have to say I paid "In State" at another school. This wont keep me from being a WA educational resident I dont think, though, because I've maintained only a WA drivers license, and always called my permanent residence WA. The residence office guy agreed with me, and said to write a cover letter explaining my situation. He said the main concern was for people going somewhere else in the States.

Sounds like it probably won't be an issue. I don't see why you have to say you payed "in-state" at another school, you didn't, you just payed the Canadian Citizen rate, which has nothing to do with residency. But go with the advice of the guy at the residence office not mine. Good luck, I bet it will work out.

I can tell you with certainty UWlawhopeful there is a link between you and me. I went IR on 1/21 as well, and although my GPA is median to 75%, my lsat is below 25%. We must be in the "not so attractive lsat score" pile. Unfortunately, I don't know what it means other than possibly "maybe." I figured if they wanted to outright reject us, then what is the hold up? We can only remain hopeful there is a reason they are holding onto our apps. Speaking for myself, I will expect a rejection (despite my optimistic nature), and will be ecstatic otherwise.

Above 75% GPA, below 25% LSAT here. Still IR 3/4.

This worries me. I fear that they've filled their class and now they're partitioning the remaining applicants into waitlists and rejections. Even if I'm on a waitlist I don't think I can justify riding it out.
