    @UWfromCA , which ones are based on Merit only? Is the 'Honors scholarship" the only one?

    Purple and Gold Scholarship:

    “Selection, by the Office of Admissions, is predominately academic, but also incorporates activities, achievements, leadership and socio-economic factors. The scholarship, which is not need-based, is renewable for four years as long as the recipient maintains good academic standing.”

    Additional scholarships:

    “The University also offers scholarship programs awarded through the UW Honors Program, Washington NASA Space Grant and many of our academic departments for freshmen (including non-resident students). Some of these scholarships are not need-based and do not require filing the FAFSA.”

    Nope, still haven't heard anything about UW portal.

    This got to be a national record -- application deadline 11/15, and no portal info until late-Jan. Are they always this late? Or is something wrong this year?

    @bogeyorpar when I first submitted they emailed me saying I would get my net id in December then in the first week of December I got a mail saying due to our application surge we will send ur net id before mid-Jan and today is already Jan 16th. So I'm kinda of worried.

    As long as nobody has gotten the portal, nothing to worry about -- except, maybe, how much did the applications surge and how much will the admission rate drop.

    Hey yall, I was looking for some advice regarding my application.. so I put my gpa on a 4.0 scale when i actually meant to put it on a 5.0. I also put that i took 0 science lab courses in high school on the coursework overview but i did put them on my profile coursework section. I was wondering if I should email first and see if they can help or should I just call the office of admissions to explain myself better?

    Hi there, I was wondering if I could have some insight on whether or not I have a decent chance of getting in to UW.
    I am an in-state student at a fairly competitive high school. I want to eventually get into Fosters to study accounting. My stats are listed below.
    3.49 UW GPA
    33 ACT (Superscored)
    I have taken 6 semesters of honors classes and five APs; Microeconomics, Stats, and currently in Calculus AB, Gov, and Comp Sci A.
    My current classes are Physics, Foods 1, AP Government, AP Calculus AB, AP Computer Science A, and Senior Writing.
    I feel like both my diversity essay and main essay are quiet strong. My main selling point was that I had taken Latin for four years, two of which I studied every Saturday during the school year and summer. in the additional information I included that I have received multiple concussions for contact sports which made focusing and remembering class material very difficult. Other extracurricular achievements I have are:
    Studying Latin abroad in Italy for an immersion credit
    Receiving Gold and Silver awards on the National Latin Exam
    State qualifier for DECA
    Leader of Entrepreneur Club
    Won a programming competition in the Summer
    Wrote a research paper with my Grandma who is a professor
    Won an award for my AP Statistics project at my school.
    Thanks for your input!

    I suppose the ID/portal access is not particularly necessary until closer to the decision dates in March.

    @uwhopeful2022 , which web site did you check?

    @labegg, very true. If it's like any other portal, after checking reception of application materials, it has no use whatsoever until the day the decision comes out.
