Was a little surprised since so few people had gotten letters. I thought the first batch would be acceptances only. Looks like the rejections are on their way already.
I'm sorry to hear the bad news. Luckily, L&C is a great school, and who wouldn't want to live in Hawaii? So you have some good tough choices to make.
Edit: I'm surprised you got rejected though. You're in-state with a 164 and extensive work experience in different areas, though the no-grades thing is a bit confusing.
I was a little surprised myself, but my transcripts are screwy at best. They're about 30 pages long with written evaluations from my faculty advisers and samples of work instead of grades. That includes non-English documents and translations from my faculty adviser during a year spent abroad. All I can say is that I'm not a good profile to base your chances on. I put "nontraditional" on my LSN profile for a reason.
I wish all of you the best of luck, and hope UW doesn't drag things out too much longer!
