Easy to get in if you have a good SAT scoreFeb 27 2012Nursing
SAT: 2130 Female
I kept straight A's in high school, got veryFeb 22 2012Biology
I kept straight A's in high school, got very high standardized test scores, and was active in many different academic honor societies and community service/leadership organizations. I was active in the Scouting program and did approximately 20 hours a week of volunteer work for various charities and my church throughout high school.

Though I was involved in many extracurricular activities, it seems like UW cares more about numbers than the student as a whole, so make sure your test scores and grades are as high as possible. Minority status definitely boosts admission potential as well.
ACT: 35 Female

Honestly, I think it's random selectionApr 07 2011Philosophy
Honestly, I think it's random selection. I was a terrible student until my last two years and my SAT scores were so-so and I got in with scholarships and fanfare. I know kids who nailed 4.0's, were athletes, and/or community activists who didn't even get a nod. They were pissed at me.
SAT: 1700 Male
