University of Washington ESSAY

<p>does anyone know how much the essay counts for the UW-seattle application?</p>

<p>I heard that the admissions people admit you based on "3/4 GPA and 1/4 SAT" where does the essay fit in?</p>

<p>Well I'm from the Seattle area and I don't believe that the essay is as important as your transcript or SAT scores. If you're in-state, there is a sliding scale for GPA/SAT scores that basically determines your eligibility number and tells you your chances of getting in. That being said, there was a College Guide written by The Seattle Times this weekend that said UW is placing more emphasis on the essay, so it's hard to say.</p>

<p>alright thanks...has anyone else heard about it?</p>
