I'm talking around 3.9 gpa from an ivy, urm and lower lsat (160).
Anyone with roughly these stats get in ED at UVA?

160 is pushing it, but there have usually been a couple of low 160s/3.9+ ED admits (both URM and non-URM) in the past couple of cycles.


got my score..it's 163. Applying ED to uva with 3.9 gpa, urm, bilingual.
Hope I make it in.

Would not ED. Your numbers are good enough that you could get better schools. Only ED if you want UVA because it's UVA.

Hmm I disagree I think UVA ED is a good choice. Also depends what kind of urm you are...

I got my ED acceptance (10/18) with a 161/4.0 and I'm not at an Ivy school, nor am I a URM. You should definitely have hope!!!!! =)


Thanks for sharing. This gives me a lot of hope. I'm a 165/3.95, and just sent in my app yesterday. We shall see, but I feel somewhat hopeful based upon all the extensive research I have done on here and LSN. I hope to get back to you all with good news soon.

Are you a URM or VA resident?
3.88/163.

they can't possibly let in people on the basis of numbers alone. Too many people with high lsat and gpa's. I think they are more holistic and want those with a good story to tell..diversity, adversity, etc.
Anyone else agree?

Nope - neither. We'll see what happens.

I have a fairly good (I think) PS and strong LoR's. Resume is probably as good as it could be for straight out of undergrad.

I'm not the cookie-cutter candidate by any stretch, either.

My numbers are slightly below their median for GPA and below 25th for LSAT. The only thing I have going for me is nontrad life/work experience. I guess we'll see..

Good luck bro!

Anyone know if the ED process is 15 calendar days or 15 business days? I am assuming the former.

Best of luck to everyone else!

Just got a fee waiver from UVA (I never asked for a fee waiver). Is this a good sign?

Sorry to hear it!

I wonder if you could ask? I have no idea if that's allowed.

I wasn't even considering UVA cuz I didn't think I'd get in. Then they sent me a fee waiver. Now I'm going there in the fall.
