I've told my school to mail my final transcript (once I get my degree) to the (law school) admissions office, since I couldn't find any other information online, and my acceptance letter didn't specify.

...Thesis defense in 6 hours.


Thanks! Good luck with the thesis defense- I'm sure it will be fine. From what I remember, waiting to start was the worst part!

I ordered my transcript sent to the admissions office c/o: Dean Trujillo. This was a couple months ago and I still haven't heard from UVA if they've received it yet...might have to pony up another $10 to get my UG to send it. Has anyone who's sent their official transcript heard back?

I think you can do it over any 72 hours during a period of time between like 2/1 and 3/10, something like that. 24 spots, not sure how many try out but it's not like journal tryouts where almost everyone does.

Is there any notable benefit in doing it?


Well it shows you're good at legal research and writing and is a somewhat prestigious thing to put on a resume.


are dillard fellows discouraged from being on journals, or specific journals?

Ah, that makes sense. I paid my deposit online, so I didn't even think of that. Thanks!

I called them about this a while ago and they said just to use Office of Admissions, 580 Massie Road, etc.

When is the transcript due? Sure, we could dig up all this info from the UVAadmit site, but where's the fun in that?

isn't this kind of weird to send your transcript again if it's the exact same one as when you applied? I graduated four years ago. :)

whatever keeps them happy!

Also just made a big update to our facebook group. There are a lot of you! I hope this means lots of good summer BBQ/c-ville exploring hijinks :D



I also sent mine in a few months ago and have heard nothing. I guess eventually they'll let us know they received it?

On another note, I was shopping with my Mom today and the sales associate that was helping my Mom asked me what grade I was in. I said I was about to start law school and she looked at me like I was crazy and asked if I had even gone to college yet. The woman was probably in her early forties and said she had a son in college, so it wasn't like some senile elderly person thinking I was in high school. How embarrassing.

Hahha do you hold your mom's hand when you guys go shopping or something? You are not having good luck this week with the sales associates....

Anybody here chosen their lender yet? I was just researching the list of lenders that comes up in SIS when you click to accept your loan package. Discover seems to be the only one that explicitly says you will not be charged any fees above and beyond the federally required 3% origination fee for Grad PLUS (no origination fee for Stafford and no guarantor fees for either). See this chart: http://www.discoverstudentloans.com/stu ... udent.aspx

So, as of now, I am leaning towards Discover.

Haha, no, but she did push me around in the cart (kidding). I'll admit I look younger than I am (23 in June), and I was dressed really casually, but so young you have to ask what grade I'm in? I don't think it's that bad... The worst part was the afterward the lady was like, you look really really young, my son's in college but you just look so young. She just kept rubbing salt on the wound.

Take it as a compliment :lol: Are you male or female? Either way, it's a compliment. I'm 27 years old and look pretty darn young so I know what it's like.

I'm female.


For the loans, is it better to take the all out with the lender? Better to take the out with different lenders? I need serious help, here.

+1. I'm clueless and slightly panicky. Are people planning on paying their interest on the unsubsidized stafford and gradplus when in school? UVA's website says they recommend it...finance majors please help!
