    GPA? AP scores?

    CS doesn’t seem to break down the instate vs out of state for direct to major admittance data but list the ranges as GPA 3.93-4.0 (4.0 scale), SAT 1420-1560, ACT 34-36. They specific this is the range rather than middle 50. So just on your SAT it looks a reach.

    UW overall SAT middle 50 for out of state is 1370-1500.

    Unweighted GPA would be helpful.

    Also, what is your budget? What state are you from?

    A lot of my senior friends from my HS applied and got into UW this year! I'm from in-state tho, but your stats definitely look comparable to theirs and I think you have a good shot, but I guess for all chance-me threads, nobody can say for sure.

    Don't apply to CS from out of state and expect to be admitted unless you have a major hook.
