Hello all....new to the boards.

Wondering if anyone out there is getting into UW without residency in the WAMI states. It's my first choice. I'm in the military, but am a resident of CA. Opinions are great, but a RL story would be better. Thanks guys and girls....and keep smiling.

Unless you are a minority or are applying as an MSTP student, UW basically advises that you not waste your time.

I applied as a member of a WWAMI state, and I didn't get in. Although I am attending elsewhere, this surprised me (I was admitted to 3 other schools and turned down 2 other interviews). I also was not very impressed with certain aspects of the school, and I let them know this (probably one of the reasons I didn't get in).

Again, unless you are applying as an MSTP or are a minority, your app will most likely get filed straight to the garbage.
