Admissions Indices

I'm a UW student with friends who are panicking about whether or not they will gain admission to the University of Washington. Someone once posted a link to the UW Admissions Index, including the minimum cutoff for AI before students' applications are actually examined and applicants not guaranteed admission. Does anyone know where this page is? Thank you in advance :)

So, just out of curiosity, I was wondering if it's easier to get into UW if you're Washingtonian. As in, if you're a legal resident of this state, do they favor you? Because I'm almost 100% certain they do prefer in-state applicants, but I *don't* understand why, because out-of-state students would definitely increase their funds.

Otherwise, why else would a HUGE majority of the students from UW be from this state? *Because* of the tuition? Actually, that would make sense, it's much cheaper to attend UW as an in-state kid than go out of state.

But anyway, so that could potentially explain why people who accept their admission tends towards residents, but do they accept an equal number of in/out-of state applicants? Or do the number of applicants that apply in-state incredibly outnumber those that don't.

Wow, that was a really long post for one question. I need to be more succinct next time. Then again, I'm just procrastinating so that I won't have to my math home thisverysecond.

Also, good luck on finals next week. And have a good Sping Break.

I know there have been quite a few questions about apartments lately, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about Nordheim and Radford Court apartments. They seem a little expensive, but I am currently in Florida (I am [hopefully] going to uw with national student exchange) and it might be a little hard for me to coordinate somewhere to live. Also, I have never lived in an apartment (I am on campus at my school this year). Are they convenient to travel to UW? Are they a nice place to live? Which of the two is better? If anyone can help me out with these questions I would be really appreciative. Thanks!
