Hey guys I officially withdrew. Seriously feels like a bad break up and I'm kind of in pain, but had to do it.
Good luck to everyone else wait-listed!!!
Must have got your quasi-admission spot for the fall 2013, just received an email from Anne Richards asking if I would consider deferring for a year here is the content of the email:
(Personal portion of email with name etc)...
It may be possible for us to offer you deferred admission to fall 2013. Our deferrals are binding. This means that, if we are able to offer and if you choose to accept deferred admission to fall 2013, you would have to agree to decline any other offers of admission that you currently are holding from other law schools. You also would have to agree not to apply to any other law schools during the deferral year. You would have to pay a $1,000 nonrefundable seat deposit to UVA Law now to hold your seat in our fall 2013 entering class and would be bound to join us in August 2013.
If a binding deferred admission is something that is of interest to you, I will consult with our admissions committee to see if this is something we can do. Please let me know? Feel free to give me a call if you want to talk -- (434) 243-1456.
I'm a little hesitant to commit to this given my circumstances, applied in January after 176 on December lsat..when I applied I had a 3.1x gpa but after this past semester my gpa via LSAC will be roughly 3.2. However, I feel like if I really do take a year off it would be stupid to commit now to UVA and give up any chance at any other t14 (specifically shooting an ED to Michigan) TLS gurus any thoughts?
I'm in the same boat. Was offered deferred admission with almost the exact same numbers. Virginia is my first choice for several reasons and I'm not trying to go anywhere else, but I don't want to cheat myself out of any potential scholarship money. If you don't mind me asking, why do you want Mich over UVA?
