I sort of did a Why UVA essay but that was incorporated into my PS so it wasn't as long as a seperate statement.
I think you should hold off for a week or two. Sounds like I submitted / got status checker a week before you, and I was accepted Thursday. I don't think you should do a LOCI unless you are like waitlisted or held (does UVA do that?) or ignored for 1-2 more weeks. And I would consider your PS a "why uva". In case you did not know, apparently at UVA you can ED at any time, so just an option to consider if it is your first choice.
