Why UVA question?

Postby HYS123 » Fri Aug 02, 2013 12:34 pm

This may be a silly question, but is it acceptable to refer to UVA by its initials in this essay? I feel weird typing out "The University of Virginia" so many times...

Also, any other advice about this essay is welcome, and if anyone would mind looking at it when I finish I would be thrilled.

I remember this issue when applying; I mixed and matched the following:

1. University of Virginia School of Law (1st mention only)
2. Virginia Law
3. Virginia
4. U.Va. Law (note the periods and the capitalization)
5. U.Va.

UVA alumnus here...we use UVA as the acronym, for what it's worth.
