Please post any news, updates, or irrelevant youtube videos we might find entertaining on this thread.

My latest status update came yesterday. "Your transfer application has been forwarded to the Committee for review and decision."

Does that look similar to what you all have?

Good luck; last transfer cycle was a bloodbath for UVA. For instance, #1 at TTTT and UVA UG alum was denied.

Well isn't that kind of a really big jump to make? I mean even if the person was at "the best TTTT" he/she would still be attempting to move 90+ schools. I wonder how much UVA UG helps too.

OP - my application status says the same thing. I called them and they said they will start sending emails as early as Friday. Best of luck to everyone!

Update: no word from UVA yet. They've had my application for close to 72 hours now ... hurry up already!


It's going to be a long couple of weeks

Does anyone else have a school administrator listed under their "Letters of Rec/Evaluations" on the Application Status page? I'm assuming it's just for the Letter of Good Standing but just checking if I need to panic.

I was accepted today! So thrilled and will definitely be attending. Coming from a T70-85 on the east coast. Top 5% first semester, top 9% second semester. UVA UG and VA resident.

I had an assistant admissions dean contact me to schedule a Skype/phone interview, and in the middle of that interview, he said, "Oh just so you know, you're accepted."

Also, to the person above me, yes my status page showed a third "letter of recommendation" from my original law school's registrar. I'm assuming it's the letter of good standing.

Yes that is what UVA did for my letter of good standing as well.

Congrats! Just wanted to say welcome to UVA. I feel you guys will love it in Charlottesville. Feel free to ask questions about the school in the UVA thread.
