On the flipside, I got into UChicago today!
+1 on Harvard and Chicago, but you probably already guessed that. I think you should update your grades if they improved as I did; it's a good low-key way to update. I received some advice on the past page about this.
How did UVA go for you? My only ding so far, but I didn't write a why UVA...so they probably could tell where my heart really was.
I actually haven't heard from UVA, but my last UR date was 11/13 so I feel like it's going to be a negative response. I also didn't write a why UVA; I probably should have...
As far as Harvard goes, I think I'll send a LOCI and/or LOR in a couple weeks if I haven't heard anything. I've heard HYS acceptances can be slow for URMs and I'm hoping that's all that's going on here.
