How do you send a Why UVA if you didn't send in it with your application in the first place?

Email it with your LSAC # and ask for it to be added to your file.

Teehehe. Same, complete since 9/5. I’m just wondering how long it’s gonna take for them to put me on the waitlist. Did our applications get lost?!

FWIW Mine's not blank it looks the same as it did before. (I think?? But who knows. Seriously if you look at this shit long enough you start seeing things. Like how people analyze the formatting on the LSAC website the day that LSAT scores are coming out)

So are you considering UVA over the other schools you have gotten into? I'm confused. You have some really great offers...

Well I would consider them more heavily if they a) accepted me and b) offered me some money! I also want an excuse to visit Virginia since one of my close friends lives there. But I guess I would probably still choose Harvard lol.

Got an email this morning from Jason Dugas asking me to call him. Reached his voice mail and left a message at 9:30am. He called back at 3pm. In! He said scholarship info will be in the packet which is on its way.
I was almost sure they had passed me since I submitted 10/1.

In today as well! And for everyone thinking they may have been passed over, don't fret: I applied 9/1. 105 days is a long time to wait for an acceptance, but it's totally worth it.

Stop playing. You're not going to UVA. You're headed straight to Cambridge and you know it. Your UHaul is outside waiting to be packed up.

If one's chances of enrolling in one university are slim due to their admittance to another school, they really ought to withdraw their application with the consideration that another deserving applicant could be attending such university and/or receive a greater financial aid package.

Honestly, no one cares about one's breadth of admittance/scholarship. Certainly, no one wants to read immature remarks about false, drawn-out aspirations; it insults those who are in a lesser situation, with larger aspiration of attending. With that being said, most people do the "correct" thing by withdrawing their application, while others selfishly wait for offers they wont take. It looks foolish and inconsiderate. Then again, it is one's right to do whatever they so choose to do with their application. All I am saying is stop the whining, few people care about your predicament; it is pretentious.

I understand your argument, and I've withdrawn from several schools for this very reason. However, I have kept my application in at some other schools that I am less likely to attend because an acceptance or aid package from those schools would give me leverage in negotiating aid from other institutions. I think that is a legitimate reason to not withdraw immediately.

Your abuse of blue font to stand out is also fairly pretentious.

And go cry me a river. If somebody even has a 1% chance of attending, they have every right to not withdraw their application. They paid a hundred bucks for that app, earned that acceptance, and deserve to have the right to choose when to withdraw without feeling morally obligated to give it up asap.

If somebody on the internet posting about that makes you angry, it might be worth working on your personality / growing a thicker skin. People you meet during the course of your legal career won't always be so kind.

That said, I think he's a pretentious dbag for coming here to say that, too. It was obviously just Harvard dick waving. But he has every right to think the way he is and keep waiting -- just don't come here saying it like that.

Yeah I gotta agree with this. Even though I've been accepted to higher schools and have a pretty good idea of where I might be, I have no idea what my "final" choices will look like or what money will look like, and its way too early to throw out options now. There's also something serious to be said for scholarship and offer leverage, it's not that I'm "selfishly" waiting for an offer I won't take, it's that I'm waiting to see how my cycle turns out and what my options are just like everyone else. If I were to be offered a large scholarship at a "safety" school that I applied to, it could mean thousands of dollars at other schools, and if a school was originally a "lower" choice, I might change my mind with an offer and a visit.

Having said that, I'm still waiting for Michigan and Virginia. So I guess I'll go whine about that somewhere.

My intent is not to impress anyone with blue font; it is to easily locate the comments I make. We agree on the larger notion of as you call it "dick waving". I believe I stated that the poster has every right to do what so ever with their application, no crying included. I was addressing the comment they made as being pretentious in correlation to their action. The action its self is not always correlated with the moral circumstance. There is no need to make assumptions. Exercising one's earned options is not pretentious, but coming on here to wave it in other applicants' faces is pretentious. The aforementioned doesn't make me angry in the least. My skin is thick enough as well. If someone makes a crass comment they should be addressed, etiquette is a part of being a professional.

For clarification, I am not saying exercising options is morally wrong, as I am doing precisely what you are with your cycle and I certainly don't view myself as morally corrupt, ha, ha.

I was addressing the comment they made as being pretentious in correlation to their action. The action its self is not always correlated with the moral circumstance. Your thought process differs from the other posters in that they know they will not be attending UV, rather they are looking for an excuse to visit a friend. I don't see anything wrong with exercising one's options, but to present it in the way that the poster did was pretentious. I will be waiting to hear from all of the schools I applied to as well, but will never come on here knowing that there are many people who have great aspirations of attending UV and passively flaunt the higher ranked school I got into, mocking the situation by saying it will present me with an opportunity that really has nothing to do with the law school at all.

Best of luck all!

I guess I didn't earn the right to also post on forums in blue as well :wink:
But seriously, I appreciate the heads up and I wont be delivering my posts in blue on TLS anymore.

Sorry guys (Poptorts in particular), I really didn't mean to wave it anyone's face, I was just responding to Mumocad's question about whether I was still considering Virginia with the other options I had. I realize now that I should have responded with a private message. I think Virginia is a great school and anyone would be lucky to go there!

Also, I think you may have misunderstood me. My wanting to visit my friend is no reflection on the caliber of the school. For example, I also have several friends who go to Stanford, and besides wanting to be admitted bc Stanford is a great school, I want an excuse to visit those friends. Again, no reflection on the school.
