Decision sent via US Mail on 2/8/10. It has to make it all the way to KY though. Do they mail rejections or just acceptances and waitlists?

Not sure about if they mail rejections, what are your stats if you don't mind? Also, when did you go In Review?

UW begins to send decisions really late, but I can't imagine that they'd start sending ANY rejections just yet.... they've barely started sending acceptances (a tiny batch about 3 weeks ago). Maybe YP waitlists could be in this next round, but I'll bet it's acceptances all around. Good luck!!

Last year they did send some rejections in the batch of decisions that went out in early February.

edit: You don't have anything to worry about though.

East-sider, did you get the decision in the mail yet?

Anyone still "Ready for Review"? I applied in early December and I've been stuck there for a while.

I still am, but it's looking like I'm unfortunately going to be at the very end of their stack of applications, so I dunno how valuable my wait is for comparison purposes. I went "ready for review" on 1/27 and that was the first confirmation that I was complete -- apparently they were still waiting on LSAC or Form B or something before that.

I think our stats are similar and I'm praying for a miracle as well. Good luck!

Seattle resident, crossing my fingers for UW as it would be really convenient and I want to work in Seattle. Went in review on 2/3 like many people I've talked to but it looks like notices are going to people who applied back in october/november. Applied 12/3 so I have a while to wait.

I've been "In Review" since 01/21/10.

It apparently takes a while.

When do you think people who applied mid-December will hear? May? Ugh, UW is my absolute top choice, I'm a longshot anyways ... just give me the rejection so I can get psyched about other schools!

Last year almost all of the decisions went out in February and March. My application went complete at the beginning of December and I got a decision the first week of February. It sounds like things have been going more slowly this year because they have a new director of admissions and some new admissions office staff who just started in January, but it sounds like things will be picking up soon, at least with regards to sending out info to admitted students, but I imagine also with sending out decisions. They have an admitted students weekend/open house or some kind of event scheduled for February 26th, so I imagine they will have admitted a few more people by then.

Last year's LSN numbers had my hopes that I'd hear back early. I see people who sent their apps in on 1/15 and heard back by 2/11. However you also have people who sent theirs in on 10/2 and didn't hear back until 3/28.

At this point, I think I'd give a 5% decrease in being accepted for having my status changed to decision mailed. I guess I'm not very patient.

For what it's worth, I was told by someone who used to work in the admissions office that they render most of the decisions after their winter quarter ends, which according to the web site is March 20. That might not be the same this year if they have a new admissions director, as cited a few posts up. I hope not. That's getting pretty close to the deposit date for some other schools.

Out of curiosity, what are the stats of those who consider themselves long shots? PM if you don't mind. More than for any other school I'm having a really hard time trying to predict where I stand. The numbers chart on the admissions web site raises more questions than it answers.

I hate that they average LSAT scores. I would stand a decent shot if they were like most other schools and considered the highest score. I'm cooked because of their averaging rule.

i'm definitely an extreme long shot. (3.3, 163, non-URM)...and even more of a long shot if they do actually average lsat scores. and i am not a washington resident.
u wash is my first choice...do i even have a shot at being waitlisted?

According to their LSAT/GPA grid, your odds are somewhere around 1 in 5, dependent on softs probably. Not the best odds, but not death defying either.

I don't think you are a long shot at all. You're at their median LSAT. I would say you have a GREAT shot of being waitlisted! haha, isn't that something awesome to look forward to? But seriously, I do think you stand a shot (but, I could be way off).

thanks for the encouragement. 1 in 5 chance isn't that bad i guess. i wonder what kind of softs they like?
if i were to receive an acceptance from them, i would pay the first seat deposit within ten minutes of reading the acceptance letter. lol, sad i know

I think I'm a long shot with 160/3.8. Holding out hope that they want my GPA?
