And that's why, you always answer your emails from UVA. Love your tar.

:) Thanks. J. Walter Weatherman is an inspiration to us all.

BTW guys, I just received my phone call, and I got in with an incredible scholarship. I applied RD back at the end of October, so don't lose heart if you haven't heard back yet. I did write a (very sincere, thought-out) "Why UVA," and I'm OOS. Numbers in profile. Can't begin to describe my excitement.

Good luck everyone!

It's been silent for me since 10/2. I think my waitlist email got misplaced.

told me on the phone but I seem to remember someone on this thread saying they heard nothing on the phone but there was something in the packet. could be wrong but worth looking back 8)

Non-resident tuition is ~50k so 150k over 3 years would cover it
In-state is ~45k so 135k would cover that

Accepted today as well! I just applied ED last Friday so I was incredibly shocked when I got the email/phone call today.

Congratulations to everyone!

Naah. Someone just got in who hadn't had movement since September.

"UVA is unpredictable and weird" should be at the top of this page at least as much as "Your status checker update means nothing" should be on the Michigan thread :)

:lol: :lol: Sorry for asking a trite question XD Good to know it's not over for me yet though! I was just confused because they say '6-8' weeks, and presumably you go UR when you go Complete, so I've been UR for ~11 weeks now. Sigh, UVa. :P

Way to go, guys... jealous!! I went to this website and did a student loan calculator thing though and even 20k per year helps a lot.

Disclaimer it really depends on the assumptions you put in. I just used it as a ballpark. Major takeaways include needing to make a ton of money post-graduation and the sheer amount of interest that is paid over time. I find it mind-boggling and I do finance/accounting for a living (for now at least :) )

Yeah UVA are dirty liars when it comes to their decision time estimates unless you give your heart to them ED.
