I don't know much about the specific program, but your leadership in high school has been amazing. Congrats on your accomplishments! I'd be surprised if UW doesn't accept you - are you in-state?

As you are a Washington resident, I would place you on the list of high probability to get admitted with the only real risk that they may think you are kidding about going to nursing school with such qualifications. If you really want to go to nursing school start looking into many of the schools that have such programs and check out scholarships available. Someone with your grades, rank, and actual desire to attend nursing school has a good chance of finding at least a tuition scholarship at a number of schools, particularly if you get the SAT up somewhat.

UW has one of the top nursing schools in the country and the University of Washington Medical Center and the Health Sciences Library is GREAT and right next door. The price is right, too!
