I think you should call them; I had that problem with another school and they resent it to me.
I submitted to UW 12/20 and got the status checker 12/21.


I made the call this afternoon and the good news is they received my application. The bad news is I still don't have a status check e-mail. I can't decide if it's nice that I can't obsessively check my status or torture. When you went complete, did they e-mail you as well as update the status check? I'm getting e-mails from the financial aid office as well as an e-mail on the 9th about the Gates scholarship so I know my e-mail is right.


Yeah, they did.
They sent the e-mail right away and I think UW was like one of the first ones to send me an email with status checker.
On the status, it says in review since 12/26. I believe that we are in the same time frame, so yours might be in review too.
"Your file is in review: Your file has been sent to the Admissions Committee for review. Please allow up to 4 weeks from the Current Status Date for a decision to be rendered. We appreciate your patience. You will be notified of your decision via email and this page will also be updated."
This is what it says on the status checker page. I'm not sure if I am allowed to post this and I'll delete it if it becomes a problem.

Why would you be disallowed from sharing an email sent to you about your app? No need to be paranoid. It's fine. Share whatever you feel comfortable sharing.

Waitlisted via email.
I can't say I am surprised as my numbers are a little low. Here's to hoping...

For those who have received a decision: does the status checker change at all before you get an email?

I didn't see any change on status checked a couple hours before the email. The email popped up on my phone; I was not actively checking at that time.

Let me know if you want to talk about waitlist stuff. I was admitted off the wait list, but after the deposit deadline.

So based on that I think I'll wait until February 1st. If I don't hear anything by then I'll reach back out and ask them to resend the status check e-mail. Thanks for all your help, I appreciate you posting that info.

Thanks. I know I'm in a bit of a different boat having to sell my house, move my family, and get my kiddo situated for school. I'll probably wait until the last possible day to put in my first seat deposit at another school, unless I hear back before then. Then I'll have some thinking to do.

Got my admit email yesterday and noticed that my status checker changed to "Decision". Not sure which came first, but I was definitely still UR over the weekend.

Hey! First post on here :)

I got my admit email to UW on Jan 12 (went UR Dec 18).
GPA: 3.54
LSAT: 163

I applied to UW 2 cycles ago and got a flat-out denial that time (didn't end up attending any law school - been working as a paralegal for the 2 years since instead) so I'm REALLY excited for this one! I lived in Seattle for a year in 2015 and loved it, pretty sure I'll end up accepting this one :D now just waiting for the fin aid decisions... anyone know where the scholarship application can actually be found? I haven't found anything clear on the admit portal :?

Congrats! If you click the "Admitted Students Portal" link from the acceptance email, one of the tabs at the top says "Scholarship Application". It basically is just a text box and gives you the essay prompt, and then tells you to copy and paste your response into the box.

Thanks! I think I was looking for something a bit more...official or fancy-looking? guess I was looking too hard.

I went review 12/26!
It says on the status checker that it takes them upto 4 weeks so I thought it was a ding for me when I hit the 4 weeks mark.
So those of you who are waiting for more than 4 weeks, don't lose hope! :D

Waiting. Submitted in Jan and stats not that good. Still hopeful. Finger crossed.
