Mine requires good academic standing, which is a 2.3 GPA and to basically maintain good behavior.

Your gpa gives me hope my friend.


Yeah a call this early in the cycle was definitely unexpected. Good luck to all the other splitters!

Ok, is anyone else confused? I know yesterday there was much hubbub on this thread about this change in the header.

are people thinking that this change is a "status change" (from complete to under review)?

I didn't think that this was a status change. I was thinking that it was just a change in their terminology and standard wording to indicate that under their process, all people who are complete are also under review.

based on the fact that I got in a mere few hours after my header changed, I think that not too much should be read into it, the process has been happening and is still happening much as before

course, who am I and what do I know?? haha :D

I think it's safe to say that since everyone saw it, it doesn't mean much

Well, I assume they're back, because I just got in via phone call about an hour ago. #s are in the profile; submitted mid-November; OOS applicant. I was also told on the call that I received a half-tuition scholarship as part of the school's partnership with TFA.

Good luck to everyone still waiting; I hope this means many more pre-New Years calls.

FWIW: I did not write a "Why UVA" essay initially, but sent one as a supplement about three weeks ago. While I don't know if this helped, for everyone debating whether to send a supplementary essay, it obviously didn't hurt.

Congrats, danielhay! I am almost sure I'm getting WL'd/ dinged at UVA. I have been complete since early Nov (applied slightly before Halloween). No Why UVA. Lots of acceptances from people who submitted after me. Oy.

Same dates here. Pretty certain I'm out at UVA but it's not killing me. Can't win em all!

+1, except that I did write a 'Why UVA." I'm unlikely to attend UVA over GULC or NYU, though, so I guess I wouldn't be devastated. But I do really like some of their clinical programs and their placement in the DC market.

UVA wins for the most bizarre t14 acceptance cadence this year. It's all over the place.

I'm not saying it looks good, but I don't think it's as rolling as at, say, NYU.

Thanks, addy and Take_Two! I am not losing hope. And I guess you can't win them all. I'm just saying I think my odds may not be that great. I hope to be proven wrong, UVA, haha. Good luck everyone!

That sucks. I have to admit I'm surprised given your numbers. This was your ED after the Columbia ED, right? You're having a really strange cycle so far. I think you'll get something though. Some T14 is going to bite on that 177.

I have a slightly higher LSAT and a significantly lower GPA, and I've gotten into two T14s so far. You'll be fine, if my cycle is any indication for splitters like you and me.

Yeah it was NYU not Columbia, but same thing. I was already admitted to Georgetown and I'd be happy there, so I'm not worried about it. I think to NYU there is a world of difference between a 3.2 and a 3.3, which I wish I would've figured out before EDing there. This UVA result is a little more surprising, but I think it may be either because I applied so late or because of my complete lack of softs.

Or I COULD wait a year, ED UVA in early september and ED Penn if that doesn't work, but damn, I already waited one year, I don't want to wait another. Especially considering I do already have Georgetown.

I submitted way early in the cycle, OOS applicant, reverse splitter, have not heard a thing! I've been admitted to Georgetown, so I do have a good option, but I'm also wondering why I haven't heard from UVA

my application had some pretty rapid turnaround, while other seemingly equally or more qualified candidates have heard next to nothing. Seems the process is happening a little haphazardly, at least in my largely baseless opinion :D

Got the acceptance call yesterday. I'm still in shock. Didn't think there was any chance. 162/3.91. Good softs. Have some research to do. Congrats to everyone who has gotten in.
