I'm just curious, why did you write a why UVA? For scholarship consideration? You're an obvious admit, if you applied ED you would be accepted on the spot.

As for the content, it seems like you have valid reasons for wanting to attend UVA. If you are genuinely interested in public interest, UVA's loan repayment is about as good as it gets.

Just cut out all the big words (cogently, fortuitiously, picturesque, etc.) and you should be fine. At the present time you don't sound like a real person.

Also, does UVA have a page length for their "Why Virginia?" essays?

Thanks! Yes, I wrote this because I am hoping to get either the 25k or 30k per year, which a lot of people with my numbers have received. The 30k would probably decide everything for me, because I really meant it when I said it was my first choice. It was a great visit.
