DO IT! I applied in September and was really interested in UVA but didn't write a "Why" and it is one of the only T14 (excluding T3) that I haven't heard anything from. UVA seems to really be trying to up their yield.

Unlike the other YP schools (e.g. Penn) UVA doesn't offer a prompt for "Why UVA" so many applicants wouldn't think to include one. Makes sense considering that usually the prevailing wisdom regarding apps is "less is more."
