In as of today. $$$.
Out of state, RD, submitted late September, wrote a Why UVA.

I'm rather excited. I'll probably be visiting there sometime this winter.

More perspective on my application:

Above both 75th percentiles, in-state resident, wrote what I feel was a strong Why Virginia essay. Also received scholly, if that has anything to do with it.

Congratulations! I haven't been on this thread since I heard they wouldn't be looking at RD until January. I guess I will have to stay tuned now.

Congrats! LSAC sent out my application before Thanksgiving (UVA received it Nov. 21st) and I still don't have a "complete" or "under review" in my Application Status, hm...

My file went complete about two weeks ago but, like many others, I'm starting to freak out because I didn't write a "Why UVA." Is it too late to submit one, or still worth it? I applied RD and my numbers are 175/3.81. Thanks for your input!

there are very few circumstances under which a person with your numbers should freak out about anything... & not having written a why x essay for UVA is not one of them. Sit back and enjoy the cycle your hard work produced

Anyone know how much scholarship movement there is after an acceptance w/ out an initial offer? I read they reconsider at some point in the future, but I'm guessing that of the percentage of scholarships they give out overall, a very small percentage of those are after acceptances (and no initial offer).

Got into UVA Law as of 12/07; there was no mention of scholarship money via phone conversation. Does anyone know if scholarship information is included in application package? I assume I'll be waiting a few days before mine arrives in the mail...

Thanks

You should be thanking ELib and MOC because you got the spot they freed up.

LOL JK

It's typically mentioned in the phone call and in the acceptance packet

I think you've still got a good chance. UVA is being weird this year - they haven't accepted that many people, and they've offered big money to an unusually large proportion of those they have accepted.

According to LSN, they've only accepted about 1/2 page of applicants. Last year, they accepted 1 & 1/2 pages in total - so there are still a lot of places available. Although it is probably less likely you'll get big money now.

Virginia status checker is virtually meaningless right? It went complete like a month ago for me but has not changed since.
I saw a post in this thread saying something like only calls and snail mails are their way to inform. As I am currently in China, I guess snail mail for me if I am admitted?

I just hope they can tell me via email. I hate the waiting. My parents are pressing me to find a job instead of waiting endlessly for law school results. They did not think I could get in any law schools. This, plus the waiting, is driving me crazy.

Sorry for the complaints. :(

your parents should realize you have a great shot of getting into some great schools with those numbers.

Maybe they're doing what Mich seems to be doing and waiting on a lot of people who they think will withdraw when they get into other schools.

Maybe. I mean, they’re right. Maybe all the schools are stalking our LSN profiles!

I've seriously considered that. I recently had my stats posted on LSN until I realized I'm the only person on LSN who had disclosed those exact stats for this cycle.
