This thread is making me paranoid about getting renters insurance.

It was understood that the condition for being admitted was a higher score on the LSAT.

Status check says he was admitted under ED and must withdraw all other applications.

Sounds like he mutually agreed to an extension of the ED contract.


This sounds right. I guess he thought he could get out of ED contract by not retaking LSAT.

What was his LSAT? I assume 167-169?


$$ = yes

168. Good guess.

I don't have any either and considered the admittedly trivial cost a waste... but I definitely could afford that better than the cost of replacing my worldly belongings... I bet the insurance company set that fire to convince the entire population of renters in the city to get renters insurance.

Haha, it sure is turning out to be a great sales tactic for them. (Then again, if this is true then UVA is getting a cut for that E-mail they sent out about it.)

This contains some interesting info on renters insurance in VA:

--LinkRemoved--

Folks coming to UVA should probably consider getting renters insurance, since that's now two grad student residences I've heard of going up in flames accidentally this year. Accidents happen.

Rental insurance is really cheap, and probably worth it. Also required by some rental associations.

'required'. The terms of my lease require me to have it, but my landlord didn't check and doesn't care. If this place burns down, he'll recover in full under his separate insurance plan and push the ashes of my belongings out onto the sidewalk.

The apartment next door to me burned up last semester.

Yeah, that was one of the two I counted.

How do people get their profile on the admitted students meet the class of 2013? Anyone know. Do you have to submit something? Is it invitational?

This may have been asked, but do any law students live at Barracks West? (not walking distance to campus, but a short drive)

Or they don't want to make the other admits jealous of our awesome softs. And I don't want to come off as some sort of braggart when UVa posts that I was the first guy in my apartment complex to make it to lv. 70 in Call of Duty. No, I'm a humble kinda guy.

So I just checked my status checker and it said an student scholars email had been sent to me. I didn't receive one though and I think my spam filter ate it, did anybody else get this? If so, what did it say?

Same thing. They probably didn't actually send it?
