I'm anticipating some movement now. I hear the waiting list is rather long, but I'm hanging in there.

Survived today's round of cuts. I wonder how they are going through the Wait List and deciding who to keep and who to cut.

Spoke with an adcomm yesterday, and he told me they will be dipping into the WLs. He hinted that a majority of the preliminary WL releases will happen yesterday and today. Good luck!! I hope most of us last :?

just notice east coast law is already in this thread, sorry buddy


I had to dig for it, but it looks like he's a big reverse splitter. So UVA must feel pretty good about their LSAT median and are looking to bump GPA, at least for now.

+1. I applied to schools last year too, so I've been living this lifestyle for two years now!!! I'm hoping UVA puts that all to rest though :)

Well i'm crossing my fingers for you :D I've only been in this ten months or so, I feel like a rookie by your standards

Thanks! I was completely shocked when I got the call and still dont feel completely deserving of it considering my numbers.(high gpa/low lsat)

I was waitlisted early in the cycle (a non ED applicant) and sent an updated resume a few months ago and a LOCI just recently which was really focused on why I wanted UVA and what I felt I could contribute to the class.

I was accepted via phone call yesterday and, having not spoken to the admissions staff before that point, I have to say im so impressed by how kind amd professional they all are. Really made me fall in love with the school even more.

That being said- I wouldnt be too sure they are looking for high gpas or low lsats, since its the waitlist they are trying to fill spaces with a certain profiles which could include region, work experience after undergrad, gender, etc. ; Either way im so excited to have been admitted and I hope all those waiting hear soon!!

How many people other than me just frantically checked their status checker?
