UVA admit here! Heard back on the 19th of December and very excited about it! Didn't think I would have much of a chance with my GPA (3.4) but I think I was strong in most other areas.

That makes no sense........given your stats and residency, I'm sure a lot more rejections are coming down the pipeline.

Uh oh, I'm not a VA resident, but I have similar stats (also multi LSAT)

When did you apply? Did you get the UCR status change in December?

I just got denied via e-mail too although my credentials aren't nearly as strong as yours so I'm not really surprised. i'm sorry :( but your numbers are so strong that i'm sure you're going to end up somewhere great. good luck to everyone still waiting

incase people are curious:
3.75/163 (scored SIGNIFICANTLY below my practice tests on my LSAT and i'm still beating myself up over it)
non-URM
submitted 11/6 and received confirmation e-mail 11/9

Yield Protection: Some schools deny applicants with high numbers because they do not think they will attend if admitted; the school seeks to protect its high yield rate (attending students/ admitted students) in order to boast it in admissions materials.

High yield AND lower acceptance rate. Also, "selectivity" is a slight component of USNWR ranking I believe... Something trivial like 2.5%

Wow. This is just shocking and puzzling.

Pretty good chance I fax the ED contract to UVA in a couple of weeks and I'm really hoping they don't waitlist or reject me before that.
