For those of you that have not heard from UVA and think that your numbers warrant some sort of attention, call them. I got an email this morning asking about my non-response to their earlier point of contact. Only....I had no idea.

I wish I had known that I got in 3 weeks ago.

I should be an auto-ding as well and went complete 12/31/11... I think it's giving me false hope...


I've been complete since 1/6. Sent a loci and everything. Already got into Harvard. No idea wat the holdup is.


Are you still considering UVA? My guess is that they are assuming you'll go to Harvard and are waiting for you to withdraw.


Yes, that's the odd thing. I've been hassling them to no end with calls and emails. I am still intersted in UVA depending on the Scholarships. I can only imagine why there has been no word yet.

Interested in this. When did you submit? I have been complete since 1/9, but that doesn't seem as long as some other people on here....

I just found out that I got in via phone. The admin vaguely mentioned finances during the call. Did your scholarship offer come via the admissions packet? I would negotiate the hell out of that.

Thanks!

Congratulations on your acceptance. I was offered a scholarship during my initial acceptance phone call.

Did anyone receive an email from UVa today verifying that they received your in-state registration and have determined that you do qual for in-state privileges? That has nothing to do with a decision, right?

My #s are really low for UVa but I'm from Charlottesville so who knows.

Thanks! I suspect they didn't give me money, but sounded like they were willing to adjust in response to my other offers.

So, given that, I think you should definitely go for it!

Yes, that's a separate process. But it's good to be in-state =)

Waitlisted by email yesterday, out-of-state, not really surprised. Had almost forgotten about UVA due to the total silence on their end. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear back.

Went complete late-December-ish. (OOS, competitive numbers, but did not write why UVA although I love C-ville). Getting ready to book tickets for a trip to the east coast to visit some other schools and would like to visit UVA on the same trip.

It's time to send an email to the Office of Admissions, yes? :?:

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Would it be bad to mention visiting other schools?

Edit: for brevity.

Just called UVA admissions and spoke with a counselor. Apparently, there is huge decision wave coming out this week. Hold on to your butts!

if u submit a why uva statement just make sure not to write, "why not?" in really big font, and end the essay there. they don't like this as much as one would think.

Personal experience? Please please tell me you have done this because if so, RESPECT.

But nah I'm pretty sure I'm going to withdraw. I don't think UVA is the best fit for me and it's probably likely that came across in my app. I mean, I adore a nice southern gentleman but bros are not really my thing. :D

They dinged you because they know you'll have 0 interest.

I applied 1/6 and have heard crickets since then from UVA. Sent an email to them last week to check in, and got a vague reply that they had my application and are working on it. I was really psyched for UVA, but at this point I'm in to Northwestern and Duke, and I'm getting ready to commit to where I'm going.

For people admitted: does the scholarship info come with the offer, or is it a separate process?
