Congratulations!

I went complete back in mid-December, and I'm 3.92/172, with pretty good softs. Haven't heard anything at all - still complete and "under consideration." Makes me worried. I fear I'm about to get dinged.


I'm 3.73/173/master's and was under review for 2.5 months and got in with $. I really think you are okay!

I think you are overqualified.... I suggest you should send them an email, presenting somehow strong interest and they will very likely expedite the review on your file. I won't be surprised if you end up with some better offers, but if you really want to grab UVA's offer first, just show them how UVA blew your heart....


Sent early Nov here... 170/4, wrote Why UVA. I've gone back and forth about writing something else but ultimately decided that sending what is effectively a LOCI before a decision is rendered doesn't make much sense. If UVA wanted more info, they'd request it.

In any case, congrats to all the new admits from yesterday and today. Hopefully those of us still waiting get some good news soon.

Waitlisted this morning via email.

I'm not disappointed because this was my longest reach application.

Sent: 12/29
Got my status checker: 1/2

thought I'd add my stats to this to give the lower GPA applicants some hope :)

Complete 1/8
Admitted 1/11

ED, non-URM, non-resident, 170/3.6 (actually got a 164 on my first LSAT but wrote an addenda giving a medical reason the score should be thrown out and I guess they agreed with me), very specific Why UVA, very strong softs, no work experience (coming straight out of undergrad)

Congratulations! So awesome :)

It seems like they are very understanding/accepting of medical issues... I stayed in-state to begin law school due to a chronic medical problem, then had to withdraw, and am now re-applying, as I am able to move in better health... was worried, but they didn't seem to have a problem with it. In fact, they accepted me this time around and I was waitlisted my first time applying. Makes me happy!

WL this morning. 3.93, 170, no Why UVA.

I'm actually kind of surprised although I'm thinking the no Why UVA might be the reason.

Does anyone know if UVA sends a letter by mail regarding the waitlist decision if they've already notified you by email and status checker?

I don't really remember (I was WL'ed in September) but I'm pretty sure I got nothing in the mail.

After debating about it for a bit, I sent in a LOCI this morning. Just got the call - I'm IN! With....100K. At least I think that's what he said. My brain stopped working midway through due to lack of oxygen. :shock:

Hah no kidding. I was vacillating between being sure the silent treatment since early Oct was due to the fact that that they hated me, or because they were on the fence about YPing. They love me/They HATE me...I was leaning strongly towards hate until this afternoon. :lol:

My #s are 3.9X and 171, submitted early Oct with a Why UVA and a UVA specific LOR.

Just went back to re-read the Why UVA I sent in last week.

Found two egregious typos that I somehow didn't catch the 500+ times I proofread the thing.

Sad. :cry:

It's amazing how that happens. We must develop a brain resetting protocol of some sort. They know it happens. Hell, I'm sure it happens to John Roberts.

If it makes you feel better, they probably allot like 8 seconds to reading the essay and extra essays.

That makes me feel both better and worse, for conflicting reasons.

I'll focus on the better.

Gracias.

Checking in! Just applied yesterday. Went complete today. Hope the late application doesn't put me out of the running for any $$.

Do they give $ over the phone if you get a scholarship or in the mail? Been accepted over the phone w 173/3.5 but no mention of money. Thanks

Got an email asking me to give the office a call to talk about my application, called back, answered a few questions, and IN!! :shock:

I've said this in a few threads, but I've seriously felt forgotten for the past six weeks, so this decision was so unexpected and AMAZING! I spoke with Cordel Faulk, and he was great. He was super nice, and I'm not sure if my adrenaline was making me loopy, but he seemed genuinely happy to be talking to me and admitting me. He had obviously read my application and was pretty specific with his questions/comments. It was wonderful and made me even more excited for UVA.

FWIW, I submitted/went complete early November, had heard absolutely nothing until today, no Why UVA, stats in profile.

I hope all the other members of "the forgotten" hear back, too!!

No mention of money in my call either. I'm hoping to be able to negotiate later?
