Submitted 9/21, went complete 9/21, updated to 9/27 and absolutely nothing since then. I would love to hear something, anything.

I know there was one RD admit (in-state) in the posts above, but why isn't anyone else reporting decision status?

The wait is just killing me...

It looks like from LSN that last year, the first RD admit was also 11/03/09 and another batch started flowing in 11/05/09...

I am an out-of-state, but hoping to hear the good news soon... (of course, crossing fingers)


In RD today-- also a resident


How did you get your decision?


Email asking me to call-- my status hasn't changed, he said the packet would be in the mail tomorrow


Congrats Arism! If only I was in state...

I always wanted to go to a school that functioned on a meritocracy, and I feel the fact that people get a leg up in admissions based on where they live makes me feel like I am going to a school where not all my peers would deserve to be there. Don't get me wrong -- UVA is a great school, admissions is competitive, even for in-state folks, and I would love to attend,but I just don't like the thought of having as classmates people who wouldn't have otherwise been there if not for their residency. (I realize this problem isn't just limited to state residencies, but also URM status,etc. but I just want to focus on the former.)


This is dumb, UVA is a state school. State schools are often given funding from their state government. Many state schools have requirements for a %age of class that must be in state. If you don't like it then go to a private school!


+1

Taxes in VA are ridiculous, at least now I have some reason to say it's worth it!

P.S. There is a vs189 on lsn that keeps posting rude and racist comments on various profiles--one was a URM accepted ED to UVA this year-vs189 said she only got in b/c she is black-she ended up taking down her whole profile. Same vs189?? ugly.



oh and found this post on the profile another applicant on lsn too.

"Another URM. . .Wednesday, October 20th, 2010 at 1:00 pm
you're trash, a 120 wouldn't keep you out of t14, you're trash.
– vs189"

my apologies if the other vs189 is not the same person--but this lsn poster is a complete loser.


^I think that he is probably just bitter that he was rejected, and now he is taking it out on any factor but the real one: himself. His comment here, though, indicates that he is probably the same guy. And actually, the few URMs that had their information posted on LSN for UVA - a couple of Latinos also - have taken their info down b/c of this guy.

"Another . . . Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 7:15pm
the latino box helped a lot. don't flatter yourself -- if you weren't latino, you wouldn't have been accepted w/ those stats.
-vs189"

woo-hoo, or should I say wahoo? In at UVa, RD in-state. My top choice so it makes the rest of the cycle low stress.

I think we can go ahead and assume uva's medians will be rising. Seems like they are being really strategic about admissions.

I'm skeptical. They accepted a bunch of 170s ED and I don't think they'd do that if they were aiming for a 171 median.

realllly starting to regret my decision not to ED UVA...I probably would have had a good chance of getting in earlier in the cycle, but decided to ED Michigan on the chance I might get in there. I have since decided that they are going to look at my application once and laugh, and send me straight to the deferral pile.
With my uber-splitter status (177/3.1), this was, in retrospect, a very poor decision :(

+1. I think they're being very strategic about who to admit RD, perhaps because of the ED admits and deferrals from last cycle.

They could attempt to lock down some good numbers via ED then throw money at high numbers in RD

Really dumb question, but would DC be considered out of state? I'm assuming yes, but not completely sure. Cryingmonkey just got in RD, and I think he's out of state.
