Have any of you applied to the UW Academy this year? I applied to this program and have been anxiously waiting for the letters to be sent out next week. I don’t know anyone else from my school who was interested in the UW Academy, so I was looking for people to talk about it with.
idk if anyone else will see this/if you’re even active here anymore but I’m in the same boat as you! So glad to have happened upon this thread
I PM’d you btw
I got in this year, so I’d be happy to discuss it with anyone who checks this thread in the future.
I still check up on this site. How’s everything going? c:
I know this is an old thread, but could anyone help me with my chances of being accepted?

Being Asian in a predominantly white school used to make me ashamed of my culture. But now I embrace it.
Taking and passing AP HUG in 8th grade might seem good, but passed with a 3 so I really don’t know. APs look good, and also took a bunch of honors classes.
