Sorry to bug you guys. Well I really want to attend this school. It would be so awesome. My gpa is a 3.5. I got an ok sat score (2270). I took the math 2 and physics subject test. I got a 790 for math and got an 800 for physics. I self studied for physics B and getting 4s and 5s on various practice exams like Barrons and college board so I think I'm going to get a 4 on the exam but I'll study twice as hard . I get 5s on college board practice tests for AP English and my teacher says not to stress. I didnt take the computer science exam though because my teacher said I shouldn't because he didn't want me to skip anything important. I got a 4 on his practice test. I'm in FRC. I'm also a stand up comedian and preform at various clubs in LA. But I'm nervous because I got a C in semester 1 honors physics due to family circumstances (my father left me and my mom lost her job). I think I have a pretty decent life story to tell. I didn't attend school for 3 years in my elementary years and caught up within two years through homeschool. Had many misadventures like being a transfer student in Guatemala. It was then that I loved to learn. I'm kinda the head of the household when life changed. I get paid for doing various routines and help my mom bring food to the table. I go to a nationally recognized school. I'm Hispanic and female. I've been thinking about majoring in computer science, computer engineering, or electrical engineering. Or even in math. I want to be a video game programmer when I grow up. I'm going to take 3 AP classes as a senior. AP gov/econ (taking both macro and micro economics), AP calculus BC, AP statistics. Duel rolling with my community college by taking an assembly language class. Overall I get As and Bs. I forgot to mention that I had an internship at Cal Tech for the bioengineering department. So do I have a shot? This university is awesome.
Hi. You didn't bug me at all. I made this whole account just to reply to you. Joking aside, I got accepted and let me just say that your sat scores and subject test scores are slightly higher than mine. I'm sorry to hear about your father and mom. It's really admirable that you self studied and scored really high. I psh.... crammed everything for bio subject test. That's really cool you went to Guatemala!!! Is it hot there? i'm sorry how random. A VIDEO PROGRAMMER!!?? and internship at Cal Tech. that's impressive!! Bottom line: I don't know anyone who deserves it more than you do. You definitely have a shot.
Sorry for the late reply. But yeah I did go to school there for a while. And yes it is pretty hot even during the "winter" which is just a very rainy season.
I have to say that it was so nice and kind of you to reply. I really appreciate it. And thanks for the boost of confidence. Second semester is going better and smoother. So hopefully I can raise my gpa.
Well, I don't know who you are but I have to say thank you so much!! If I get accepted I hope we would cross paths on campus.
Are the listed GPA's weighted or unweighted?
More people chance me for UW!
Ditto, chance for chance?
Can someone chance me?
chance me please!
Can someone please chance me? U of Washington is my number 1 choice
It says I have a 90% chance to get into UW Seattle when Im only a Junior and I didn't even take the SAT. Going to take in June 5th, 2011 but I just used projected SAT score from PSAT. Would this mean that when I take my SAT, SAT subject tests, and AP exams, my percentage will increase?
What are my chances of getting into UW as a transfer student? I heard that UW accepts out of state students more often than instate. I'm a sophomore and I'm doing Running Start next year. Right now I have a 3.8, top 5%, and a 630 PSAT score. And what is UW looking for in a transfer student?
Possibly. It is true that UW is accepting more out of state kids than last year, but they still primarily focus on instate kids. I believe they're accepted 30% of out of state. My Brother, who was a sophomore in College, had amazing grades and everything and got rejected. But you do have some pretty good numbers, so I wouldn't give it up. Not a bad chance.
I have a 3.7 GPA, and by the end of Senior year I will have 4 APs under my belt. My PSAT is at 1800 (with no studying, planning on doing so. Projecting a 1900-2000). I will have my essay professionally reviewed. I have a lot of extra curriculars, but no leadership roles. Canadian citizen, but I live in-state. If someone could let me know my chances that would be much appreciated :)
you probably will get in, I did and i have a 3.7 weighted
I'm curious as to how I could have a 97.0% chance for UW despite my low GPA (3.66). I've always thought UW as rather selective, so this was a pleasant surprise.
I'm Asian, in-state... not that I want bad news, but perhaps someone could give me a their perspective of my chances?
UW is not nearly as prestigious as you might think. I'm a current student at UW and can tell you that UW heavily favors in-state students in admissions not only to the undergraduate institution, but also to specific programs. The 97% chance is probably quite accurate.
It's not quite clear to me why this is the case, but we have a hard time predicting rejection @ UW. If you look over the accepted list, it looks great: everyone has like 85%+ predictions. But if you look over the rejected list, it looks pretty similar; sure, there are a few low predictions, but many of the people have 65%+ chances.
Basically, we're overwhelmed by acceptances at UW and we don't hear back from enough people who get rejected.
If our model predicts you'll be rejected, you probably will be. If it predicts you'll be accepted, you probably will be. But it's also the case that most people who are rejected have pretty high chances.
Ah, I see. That would explain a lot, thank you.
So in this case, can I assume that a 97% means I have a moderately decent chance of getting in, or is the jury still out on that?
It's still well calibrated, so you should have a strong chance of getting in. It's more that I don't really understand our error mode here.
Alright, that makes me feel a lot better. Thanks again!
Hey guys,i have a 3.32 gpa cumulative, and 2100 on SAT ( 600 CR, 750 Math, and 750 Writing), im out of state and an asian applying to University of washington. I've already applied and im not sure if im gonna get in as business major (acounting/economics) Any chances im gonna get in???
I really want to go~~~
What are my chances? I'm an international student by the way.
Hi, I'm a bit curious about my chances -- it says 2.1% but I'm not sure how accurate that is. My situation is a little unique. I attended a college (for high school, because of high test grades at the time) at the age of 14 and graduated at early 17, I took full time (19 hour credit hours per semester) loads and ended up with a terrible 2.86 for a final GPA. I have no idea how my school weights (if at all) the GPA, considering I probably took the hardest curriculum in the state.
I took my SAT and got a 1780 (with a perfect essay score of 12) and I got a much higher 28 on my ACT. In addition, I co-founded a multi-hundred thousand dollar newswire with two other journalists that has been internationally recognized.
What're my chances of getting into UW? 2.1% seems off. Thanks.
Yes, 2.1% does seem rather low. Personally, I think you stand an honest chance of getting into UW if you write good essays and have a good teacher recommend you. You should definitely talk about your unique situation in your essay and talk about how your situation makes you a good candidate for UW. Being different from normal people will only work to your advantage, even if your GPA and test scores don't.
Yes, it is probably way too high. We haven't built the models yet for this upcoming year. Luckily, many people who got rejected last year were kind enough to report their status, so we may be able to build a more realistic model this year for UW.
i have a 3.3 gpa and a 1600 sat and it says i have a 98 percent chance of getting in.. is this a mistake?
no prob, dude. i wouldn't worry. like your name btw.
that's encouraging, although i'm still waiting.
ya i think you can get in. you've definitely got the SATs, plus you're in state and a minority. i'd say your chances are at least 80 percent, which is great!
take a look at me?
I did a couple days ago.
What are my chances?
well i hope so
ur. I think maybe not so much.
you know the drill... thanks
