Okay, so I just submitted my UW app about an hour ago. I feel relieved! But I didn't think I would be submitting it so soon...

Anyway...for everyone else who has submitted:

1) IS or OOS?
2) Competitive HS/Non
3) GPA
4) Intended Major
5) Where does UW rank on your application list?
6) Date you submitted your app

    I've already applied to Gonzaga EA, Pepperdine, and WWU

    I applied to Emory Scholars, too, but I'm basically positive I'll get rejected. Sigh.

    My other schools are Whitman, USC, Syracuse, and Marist
