I spent my Freshman year at UW (Main Campus - Seattle), but due to some family problems back home and problems with meeting people (I'm from Nevada, so I was an out-of-state student), I finished my Freshman year, then transferred to my hometown institution of the University of Nevada, Reno. I just finished my sophomore year at UNR, and although I love being back home, part of me feels like I should've given UW a little more time, especially since I enjoyed my classes for the most part, and I love Seattle. Not only that, UW is obviously superior to UNR in every way. So if I decided to re-apply to UW, it would be as a returning student (which is a totally different application than applying as a new student or a transfer student, just to clarify). My question, therefore, is how difficult is it to gain admission to UW as a returning student? I currently have a 3.7 GPA and I'm double-majoring in History and English. I've also taken pretty tough classes (300-400 level English and History, Summer Greek Intensive at UC Berkeley) so it's not like I've been taking remedial math at some CC. If I choose to apply as a returning student, it would probably be for Winter Quarter 2012. Any information or advice anyone has would be appreciated! Thanks!
