Fixed my post. What I meant was you don't YP people under your LSAT median.

Rejected via email. 168/3.55. First rejection of the cycle so it definitely stings but I knew it was a reach. Good luck to everyone still waiting.

Help needed! For those of you who wrote a Why UVA? essay after submitting your main application, did you just email it to admissions as an attachment? How long was your Why UVA? Thanks so much for the advice!

When people say they wrote a "Why UVA", was the essay actually titled "Why UVA"?

After much more thought than was necessary, I titled mine "Statement of Interest."

Missed a call from a blocked number yesterday, and missed it again today. No VM.

Does UVA leave its acceptances-with-full-rides-and-pony messages on VM?

Nah. I didn't expect to get WL'd, given UVA's penchant for high GPA's, but I'm not really surprised, since I didn't write a "Why UVA."

Maybe. But I was accepted with a $90,000 total ($30,000 per year) scholarship and I'm 169/4.14/non-urm. However, I applied in September and wrote a Why UVA, which I think made a big difference in my outcome.


Just to add to the WTF are they doing speculations: I applied in December with a 169/3.9/non-urm/no Why UVA essay and was accepted with $20,000/yr. I certainly can't figure it out.

Any tips on what I should include in my "Why UVA" that will not make it sound like a regurgitation of the website. I haven't had the chance to visit and only have the website to go by.

I am a hail Mary applicant: 3.06, 165. So, I could use all the help I can get.
