$40k, holy shit.  I basically went to grad school there for free (with free labor provided to the school).  But I rode my bike along the Burke-Gilman to class, and walked to the football games.

UW doesn't give price breaks on out of state tuition like Nebraska and Alabama  do (among others).   They don't have to.   

In doing some research, there’s a decent amount of scholarships/financial assistance for out-of-state students, but throw on room and board and you’re still all-in for about $40K per year.

Yep.  And I paid $300-400/month for rent.

My daughter's finalists were UT and UW. She was offered scholarships that made UW cost the same or even a little less than UT. So UW definitely competes for students they want.

 

Our oldest is up there now as a SW engineer at Amazon. We are heading up there sometime late summer to spend some time with him and explore the city some more. We went summer 2019 to Seattle and Olympic. Loved it and can't wait to go back.

Booked a Dec getaway, long weekend before Xmas for my wife's birthday. Cute little Norwegian town called Poulsbo, just north of Bainbridge Island. We stumbled on it during our last visit to ONP and fell in love with it over a couple hours. Viking Brew Coffee is across the street from the condo and 4 breweries within walking distance.

Poulsbo is nice.  Have a buddy who moved over there from Shoreline when he retired.   Initially he hated not being closer to downtown Seattle but after they got settled and started venturing out to the neighboring towns and inlets he loved it.   They still go into town but they catch the ferry from Bainbridge on foot and enjoy the day trips.

That's right across the water from where I live- cute town, and a really short trip by boat to downtown Seattle...

I love Poulsbo, cool little Viking town and the Indian Casino there was really chill and overlooking the sound as well. The ferry ride from downtown Seattle to Bainbridge Island is pretty damn perfect.

Yes, I lived in Kent for a few years, and Federal Way before that.  I got married in Kent.  It has easy access to some nice places. 

Kent used to be just another random redneck Seattle suburb until they got the Thunderbirds.
