University of Virginia Transfer Thread 2012

Postby crossarmant » Sun Jun 17, 2012 9:31 am

Anyone else apply? I'm ~10% at a TT, Virginia resident, and have family medical reasons to be in Virginia. Hopefully that'll be enough to get me in, but not holding my breath.

Just submitted on Friday, no status check yet.

I sent my app in long ago. I got a status email on 5/29 but I will not have my final grades in to them until this week (I would estimate the transcript will arrive Wednesday).

Top 1-2 percent at T20. Not from VA, but good reasons to be there. Not sure if they have my transcript yet, but nothing on status to checker to indicate they have it.

Good luck everybody!

"Your application for admission to the University of Virginia School of Law is complete and is under consideration by the admissions committee. If you've applied under the Binding Early Decision option, you will hear back from us within 15 days of the later of (1) when your file became complete or (2) when your residency status has been determined. Most (but not all) Regular Decision option applicants will receive a decision within 6-8 weeks after going into committee review."

Ready for a swift and speedy *ding*

Indeed. Apparently, they just glimpsed at it for a second and laughed.

I'm sorry to hear that. Don't forget that you did much better than most people last year. These decisions are clearly not perfect.

Did your status change?

Did you guys get a separate email saying "complete"? I didn't and my status has been "forwarded for decision" from even before it was complete.

no email, but status checker updated to say "Your application for admission to the University of Virginia School of Law is complete and is under consideration by the admissions committee." etc. this is after "forwarded for decision"

Top 3/4%- TTT from Ohio. No real contacts to VA. Was worth a shot. Good luck everybody else.

My residency is still "Status Pending" even though I sent in the forum +/- 2 weeks ago. Anyone else have this issue?
