I know you need about a 90 average to get in, but have you heard anything else about this program? how competitive is it this year? applicants/prospects?

I know for a fact that there weren't that many applicants and thus UW gave A LOT of counteroffers to the Math/CA Rejects for FARM. I don't know about this year though.

ohhh ok i got a question then. Lets compare a CA and FARM applicant. If a CA applicant doesn't get in and its supposed alternative offer is FARM, who would UW accept first? the CA applicant or the FARM applicant? Assuming their marks and ECs are relatively the same and assuming both ranked them as their 1st choice.

One more thing. If you've applied to both CA and FARM, does that technically mean you get double chance at FARM?

Okay I think you're a little confused.

UW will give all the acceptances they feel to people are worthy and meet their requirements for FARM. On the LAST day when they reject (almost) all the Math/CA applicants they will give many of them a FARM offer - the number of offers depending on how many spots they've already filled in the actual FARM program but it's all based on extra or if you just missed Math/CA by a bit. So the CA rejects will have NO impact on someone who applied to FARM straight-up as those FARM applicants get 100% fair chance to get in.

Secondly, no as I mentioned you won't get a 2nd chance - they'll see that you've applied to FARM (And hopefully have gotten in). They will most likely NOT give you a second offer if you've gotten in but they might give you a Math/DD offer or just a general math - its been done before.

ya. got accepted like early feb. but then again not too shocked considering she had like 98% avg?!!! and very good ECs. Good thing she's not planning to go to FARM -__-


oh wow i thought FARM didn't start accepting at all. I guess my 97.7 didn't make the cutoff -.-

My friend got into this program with a low 90 average..like a 92-94%.
She got in around the end of March/early April.
She has good extracurriculars, plus she does APs (if that means anything).
Good luck on getting accepted!
