<p>Very strong applicant. Just don't slack on your application and you've got a great chance.</p>

<p>Agree with compactrunner.</p>

<p>I think you'd be considered a competitive applicant for direct admit CSE. You can find more information about that here: UW</a> CSE Applying to the Computer Science and Computer Engineering Majors</p>

<p>Be sure to spend adequate time on your essay and extra curriculars (choose up to 5) section.</p>

<p>Thanks. You know anything about financial aid there? I'd be an out of state student, but I think the Out Of State tutition is comparable to U of M's instate</p>

<p>Financial aid is awful, and almost nonexistent for in state students. Luckily, UW's tuition is still relatively* cheap when compared to out of state tuition for comparable schools.</p>

<p>I'd agree with that. U of M is only a couple thousand more when compared to U of W, and that would be for me as an in state student</p>

<p>Really?</p>

<p>UW resident tuition for 10/11 is $8701, non-resident is $25,329
UM resident tuition (undergrad) is $11,837, non-resident is $30,001</p>

University</a> of Michigan Office of Financial Aid: Cost of Attendance</p>

<p>I had read something else. Disregard that :P</p>

<p>Cellopop, your link lists UM undergraduate out of state tuition as $36,001. So I'd say a difference of $10,000 makes UW out of state tuition relatively cheaper. Not to mention the jump from in state UM --> out of state UW is MUCH nicer ($14,000) than the jump from in state UW --> out of state UM ($27,000). In fact, UM's cost is the main reason why I opted to stay in state for UW instead of attending Michigan myself.</p>

<p>compactrunner,</p>

<p>Yep, made a typo.</p>

<p>Just wondering... how much does having a low EFC help? Like say... in the 0 range? I dunno much about Financial Aid</p>

<p>It depends on the school. Some, like Stanford, MIT, etc, claim to meet 100% of your demonstrated need. But not all schools make that claim. And you need to look at how the school meets that needs, some are grants (don't have to pay back), some will offer a lot of loans.</p>
