You'll get to miss partying with me, so pretty bad.

On your way back you can stop in DC and we'll get a drink.

Or come to Cville and we'll get a drink.

I actually have a train to DC then bus to Cville on the way down. The only direct train would get me there too late for the picnic. But on the way back, train straight to Philly.


Is that Philly train to catch Penn'a ASW?

I might be able to catch like the tail end of some of the Saturday events. I'll be back that afternoon. More likely I'll just show up, grab a bunch of admitted students, and take them out drinking in Center City.

I went to Penn, so I figured it was a better call to learn more about UVA, which I know comparatively little of.

It will be an easy choice based on personality. I visited Penn... wont say anything about my impression there but I was shortly thereafter in Cville with beautiful weather, fun people, softball and beer. Thinking back... SO happy with my decision.

Not possible to establish VA residency for the purposes of discounted tuition once you are enrolled

You can become a VA 'resident', but you will not be eligible for in-state tuition

So I submitted the FAFSA and the financial aid questionnaire thing via UVA SIS system or whatever. Does anyone know if we need to submit anything else (like the need access form)?

Thanks!

They said in the e-mails that we'd need to do NeedAccess, but the website only says to do the SIS thing. I'm going to do all of them just in case. Just waiting on W-2's in the mail and parent's taxes...

Congrats everyone on getting into UVA! It is an amazing place and you will love your three years here!

FYI, the official facebook page for your class is up. https://www.facebook.com/groups/329325000496897/

You just have to request to join the group and one of the Deans of Admissions will approve it.

When you log in to SIS, it'll bring you to "az21833's Student Center." Scroll down to the "Finances" header. You should see something like this:
UVA SIS wrote:Financial Aid
View Financial Aid
Accept/Decline Awards
Report Other Financial Aid
    Apply Finacial Aid for
    Request Additional FA
    View your Application for Fin Aid 2013-14

Click the link on the page that's bolded above.

Thanks! I don't have my W2s yet but went ahead and estimated since I have a pretty good idea. The fafsa website says its better to get your form in earlier if you can estimate and then change it later. I'm not sure how important this is but just thought I'd throw that out there.

I actually just spent about 10 minutes on their website trying to find that out. I assumed it would be (750/3)=250 a month per person, but they never actually say that. I'm calling tomorrow. For $250 for a room, I'd move in tomorrow. $750, not so much.

I am off my game with this housing stuff.

yeah $250 seems too good to be true. I have heard ppl say they are expensive so I imagine it is 750 each. Regardless, post your findings here!

That is a state regulation, and has nothing to do with UVA. A cursory inspection tells me it's basically impossible in Michigan, as well.

I went to do this, and it looks like my financial aid application is for 2012-13... did this happen to anyone else? I don't think it asked me to choose a year when I first started entering info, but maybe I'm just dumb.

I know I found it because something on the Financial Aid page sent me there. I don't know that it'll actually matter, but I figure better safe than sorry.

I'm not sure what you did, but, if I recall correctly from when I did it, the 2012/2013 application link led to a dead end and the 2013/2014 link was right below it. Under your Financial Aid header (assuming you filled out and submitted the questionnaire), does it say:

UVA SIS wrote:View your Application for Fin Aid 2013-14

or something else?

On a related note, I hate UVA's website. I thought BlackBoard was bad, but this site makes me miss it.
