Hello! I'm a senior and I would really appreciate being chanced for UW Seattle. I go to an extremely small christian school in California that only offers a few AP classes (5 to be exact). Also, I got extremely sick my junior year and was forced to drop all the AP and math classes I took by second semester because I was missing so much school. I finished with a 4.0 both semesters, but I'm worried because I didn't take any honors, AP, or math classes that year =/ Do you think this will decrease my chances?

    Can you pay full freight at UWA? UWA is sensitive to payment capability as far as out-of-staters are concerned. But, if you mention your sickness clearly, you might have a chance.

    UWA: Match (high match if you cannot pay full freight)
