Yeah, you were the one I didn't know, but you just found out yesterday so I think there is every reason to believe that those with target numbers for UVA are just starting to get determinations. It looks like they had gone through a pile of high numbers a few weeks ago with those initial RD offerings, which may not be applicable to everyone not hearing back.
Splitters or even slight splitters are generally target candidates, most likely to matriculate, for those in UVA's range. They rely on them for their statistics, so I think it makes sense that more thought and time goes into carefully crafting those acceptances than those with numbers which are probably HYS/CCN admits. I would bet that those in that early round will universally end up HYS/CCN (unless they have personal reasons to do otherwise or debt aversion). LSN seems to bear that out from last year. Its still early so I think way too early to read into radio silence. Radio silence is probably what 85% of actual UVA matriculaters were hearing this time last year.
I think I like that name, "the matriculaters" - sounds fierce.
