I grew up in Seattle but moved away for a few years. Was curious if any weird loopholes exist. I imagine this is unlikely, but one can dream


I'm not an out-of-state person but I can tell you that 1) residency determinations are made outside of the law school at UW, at a separate office, and 2) they are very, very, very strict. Some of my classmates at UW Law who grew up here and moved away for a short time with plans to move back and clear ties to the area were not granted residency for purposes of in-state tuition. They've all tried contesting it and so far they have been totally unsuccessful.

Also, the standard for being granted residency is you can't have moved back or be here for "educational purposes," which means not being enrolled in more than a handful of credits. You wouldn't be able to overcome that presumption as a 1L because even if you were working, you wouldn't be working 30 hours a week because UW doesn't offer a part-time program. That makes it almost impossible to pay in-state tuition your 2L or 3L year unless you take a leave of absence from the program after 1L, or defer and work for a year.

I got an email yesterday that said...

"I hope this message finds you well. I wanted to send you an update to our Gregoire Fellows selection process. The committee is still undergoing its review and we anticipate having the decisions announced as early as tomorrow afternoon or the beginning of next week."

Yeah I got that too, I wasn't sure if it was sent to everyone or if some of the applicants had already heard back.

Accepted for Gregoire Fellowship. Feel humbled, but will not be able to accept. I am afraid if I leave Cali I will not be able to go back. My brother is in Utah and got close to a full ride there, but he can't get the same love in Cali.

Hopefully they can reassign the Fellowship to someone else.

Also, I feel like UW, as much as they want you to drink the Kool Aid there (ASW felt that way), only has regional pull!
So, even though tuition would be reasonable, I just (and I WISH it were different) cant wrap my heart around feeling it would be a good decision. I just cant! I don't want to be stuck in Washington 7 years from now if I don't want to be there!

I think you made your point. And the deal with UW is people choose to stay in Seattle. Those who choose to go elsewhere do fine. I know several of them personally. It sounds like you just don't feel the connection, which is fine for you. Go where you will be most happy (California). There's no point in being somewhere for three years where you won't be happy.

I called a week ago & they said second half of May. Their deposit deadline was May 1, but some people had asked for extensions to May 15. After that they will begin making offers to WL applicants.

Me too. But things have a way of changing when you are standing at a different vantage point. How in the world should one go about letting them know: "thank you...but"...do you guys think the companies that were involved with the Fellowship would blacklist you?

So what's the deal with the WA state bar exam? Has it changed in recent years? I was under the impression is one of the hardest in the country (behind CA and NY), but I was reading about NYs switch to the Uniform Bar Exam and some of the article say WA participates? I'm guessing it's only portions of the UBE and that Washington's bar exam is still a bear? Thanks in advance, I'm out of state and this stuff is hard to parse online.

UW"s most recent WA bar passage rate is 93.8%. You'll be fine.

Hey everyone! I'm an HLS student taking a class with a professor visiting from University of Washington, seeking past outlines from his class. I'm not sure where else to post, so if there's a better forum, please let me know!

The professor is Robert Anderson, and the class is Water Law. I may be taking Natural Resources with him as well. If you know anyone who may be willing to share their outline with me, I would be very grateful! I'd be happy to trade some of my own outlines as well.

Thanks!

Just going to piggyback off of this; I'm also interested in these outlines or in past exams/exam answers. Would love to discuss a trade via PM with any UW students!
