Hmm, if they are, it may not be a good sign for me. I am in state and I applied October 11. Nothing but crickets. I think I have the numbers to get in. And I did the distinctive contribution essay. I just need to be patient.


Yes but we applied mid Sept and became complete on 10/7. You are probably not among the first wave of applications regardless of in/out state.


I'm instate complete since 10/8 and also hearing crickets. I did the distinctive contribution essay too!

I guess my guess was wrong then ... I wrote the essay too, this is the one that you put in the box on the application right?

Let's just all hope we get in this week.

Same here, although I went complete a few days later than you (10/13) and did not do the distinctive contribution essay. I'm a splitter with GPA right at the 25th %, so I'm not feeling too optimistic. Would love to be able to stay in CA...

Numbers are so high that they don't think you will actually attend, so to protect their yield percentage (the % of people who accept offers of admissions) they waitlist you. Usually you can get off the waitlist if you demonstrate interest in the school, such as through a Why X essay. Some schools do this more than others, see the sea of yellow on UVA's LSN graph.

All schools admissions are in some way influenced by US News but at UVA its gotten to the point where it just defies all logic

OMG just got a phone call. ACCEPTED ED. This is unreal. My numbers definitely weren't good enough. 3.45 and 167,169 LSAT. I'm so ecstatic; I feel so blessed. I can't believe my cycle is already over. Good luck to everyone else (especially my splitter friends).

BTW got the call 3PM Eastern.

I honestly have no clue. I don't have any WE. My softs are about average (average PS, average LOR). I did work full time through out undergrad. and held many campus leadership positions. I applied 10/15. I also wrote a "Why UCLA" statement. Nothing too amazing about my app.

Hope this helps.

Congrats coco and cinefile! Hope I hear back soon, but I'm guessing my RD will take a bit longer.
