(I know there are more things here that just aren't coming to mind)</p>

<p>Standardized tests</p>

<p>SAT I: 1100
(NOTE: I just retook the SAT last Saturday and I do believe I did better)</p>

<li>ACT: I'm taking this at the Saturday after next, I have a strong feeling I'll do <em>much</em> better on this test than the SAT. The ACT is more diverse and overall the practice test was significantly easier for me.</li>


<p>-Lived and grew up in Turkish culture (Ankara, Turkey) from 8th grade until I graduate, learned fluent Turkish in ~4 years.</p>

<p>I can't think of much more else to add here at the moment, I'm sure things will come to me that I haven't written down yet.</p>

<p>I don't know much about international students, and how hard it would be for them to get into UW, but I can tell you straight that if you were in state you would have pretty much a 90% chance of getting in, as long as those SAT scores go up a bit. Now if you were out of state then I'd say you'd have ~80% chance of in. From this I'm assuming that as an out of state student, you have pretty much a ~70% chance of in. IN NO WAY TAKE MY WORD FOR IT
This is just my personal opinion...</p>

<p>If your SAT score goes up I'd say you're sure to get in :)</p>

<p>1200 and you are in.</p>

<p>I'm not international I'm an American going to a DoDDs school, I thought I wrote this already? DoDDs schools are the schools for military/embassy/department of state dependants living overseas.</p>

<p>Decent shot if you get those SATs up above 1200.</p>

<p>Yup, just get those SATs and you are going to be in.</p>

<p>Your ECs are alright with being president a good standout.</p>

<p>can someone please tell me about this school? I heard that their medical school is above average, but what about their undergraduate? Thanks.</p>

<p>It's one of the top 15 public universities in the country, with strengths in science, medicine, and some of the fine arts. </p>

<p>it's in downtown Seattle...which can be both an advantage or disadvantage depending on what you happen to like. </p>

<p>Pretty campus :)</p>

<p> sorry about that
didn't know what DoDDs was....

<p>I'm having trouble filling out my application for UW. My school works on a bi-semester system, so I get a grade for first semester and a grade for second semester, the admissions lady that I emailed said to seperate the grades by semester, would this, for example, be what she means?
