    Umm..they care. But its not AS important as secondary course rigor/GPA/essay.

    They are known to accept a wide range of test takers, thank goodness for me.

    I hate the SAT.

    They just don't care as much as some other schools. GPA, academic rigor, extracurricular activities are also important factors. By the way what do you mean by superscoring adreaaaaaa?

    superscoring means taking the best scores no matter what test date.

    for example, if you took it in june and got a 700 cr, 600 math, 720 writing and then you took it in october and got 680 cr, 700 math, and 700 writing, your superscore would be 2120. but UW would only look at the highest test date overall (october), so your score would be 2080. hopefully that makes sense.
