Weren't you admitted very soon after sending it, r6? I wanted to send just a paragraph saying that I remain very interested and I am looking forward to hearing from them. I just didn't know if I had to write a full page telling them exact reasons why or if just a paragraph is enough to show them I am interested.

Just submitted a "Why Virginia?" essay. So I should expect my acceptance in a few days right?! :D

Wait...so you guys are sending in LOCI's to schools that you are still in review at or were you already WL'ed? If the former, is this just a UVa thing or is it normal to do that for other schools as well? Thank you!

it's mostly just a UVA thing, for YP purposes. so people who have high end numbers send additional information so UVA knows they are serious about going there and didn't just apply because it was another t10 school. UVA and other schools ranked right around it like to waitlist people they don't think are serious about attending (people with numbers that could warrant an acceptance to a t6 school, for example)

edit: this really only works if you have a 170/3.9 or higher (on both sides) stats.

Even if you have stats below median, it helps.

FWIW: I don't have UVA YP numbers (I'm a bit below both medians in fact), but I submitted a Why UVA this morning just to add some relevant information to my file about (duh) why I like UVA that they would not otherwise have had. It wasn't going to hurt me, could be neutral, could help. So no downside.

i don't know about this. i have yet to hear of someone (non-URM of course) with both stats below UVA's medians who got in. UVA is a median whore

edit: i didn't read this well enough. if you have one stat below median, it might help. both stats, i'd go with no

i wouldn't count on an acceptance if your numbers are below both medians, but you never know. just hope for the best but expect the worst.

Don't worry, they only send those for good reasons (almost always to offer you admission).

Good job congrats!

I wonder how many people they are going to lure with that 90k. It's hard to just think about turning it down.
