I'm gonna go with either YP or big money. You're a slight splitter, but barely. I wouldn't be panicking if I were you, I'd be picking which champaign I prefer to celebrate with and watching movies.[/quote]

IDK about money- a lot of people who have been admitted got $$

Does UVA give scholarship info later? Or should I assume I am getting no money?

Scholly info comes at the same time as the acceptance.

I've read that the big scholarships come with the acceptance, but the smaller scholarships come later (if they come at all).

That is also my understanding (except to the extent people decline big scholarships which may then be reoffered to others).


I was under the impression that UVA doesnt do "small" scholarships. Isnt it either 90,000 (full) or 75,000 (still a big amount)? or do they send out random smaller amounts as well?

I believe there's some $5k/year to $15k/year ones.


Better then nothing i guess. With the 2 big schollys i mentioned, do you have to stay at a certain percentage of the class? or it is guaranteed for the 3 years?

It's actually the opposite. I think UVA gives relatively few big scholarships, but lots of little ones. I could be wrong about that, though.

No your GPA is below their median. and your LSAT is just right at it.
I think you will be accepted

Would 3.61/173 be a YP candidate? I think I need to figure out something to write in a Why Virginia essay...
