I'm probably going to Berkeley in the fall, but I'd like to at least have something finite from UVA before I commit.


I'm pretty sure if you rush them to make a decision, it will be unfavorable. Congrats on Berkeley though; that's awesome!

Every time I see your profile pic I think of a Sponge Bob type character sitting behind his computer screen, and for some reason I can't help but think that Sponge Bob at UVA would be a cool thing. Hope things work out for ya. :)

Finally got the wait list email, should have withdrawn a while ago but was too lazy, now I'm definitely withdrawing. Good luck to everyone else!

wl email today :( I assume there's some YP involved. They have a very pleasant and apologetic email - I wonder if they're nicer than most because it is really just to prune the uninterested applicants.

soo you're saying that you think people with higher numbers get nicer, more respectful waitlist emails than people with lower numbers?

if so, i believe that makes you an asshole.

To clarify, I meant that because UVA seems to use their waitlist as part of a process rather than a tentative ding, they have a more complimentary letter to go with it. If it were true that there were two separate emails, which did not occur to me, it would say nothing about me; it would be a commentary on UVA.

Eh....I'm over it...I'll probably withdraw today. I'd much rather go to Berkeley than live in Charlottesville for 3 years anyway. :D

Hey!
I applied to UVA early February (I know, really late) – and I haven’t heard anything. I’m not surprised at all since I applied late, but I was wondering if anyone knows about how long it takes to get decisions and how they come (dings vs. WL vs. acceptance)—whether it’s through mail or e-mail.
Also, does anyone know about how long it takes to get a decision and when the latest we’ll hear by is? I have a couple schools that want a deposit by April 1—so I’m getting nervous I’m not going to hear back by then.
Thanks for any info!

I think ding/WL are by email. They will call you about acceptance. You should probably call them and see what to do about the April 1 deadlines. 434-924-7351 is the number for the admissions office.
