Most people have told me, "the sooner the better" when it comes to LOCIs. Good luck!

I also was waitlisted in early January (I don't remember the date) and I sent a letter around 1/10, I think, but mostly because I actually love UVA. There are other schools that have waitlisted me already and I have yet to write LOCIs for them...guess it depends on how strongly you feel about the school!

Waitlisted. My Dad said congratulations on the waitlist, as UVA is one of the best in the country, and it doesn't mean I'm out for the count. He has a point. I commiserate with all the other WL's, but seriously, also be proud of all your accomplishments. It means they liked us enough to NOT be rejected, which is something at least.

Also is there a percentage somewhere of those who are accepted/rejected from the waitlist?

There might be the WL thread from last year. You can see the movement there. Also LSN from last cycle sorted by WL/Accept or whatever. I don't think UVA pulls much from the WL though :/

Dinged! I've been mostly an observer in this thread since I never had any real expectations, but GL to everyone else!

TLS interview suggests uva has pulled as many as 90 students from WL

Anyone get this email today?
I hope this note finds you doing well. My name is Jason Dugas, and I’m the Director of Admissions at Virginia Law. I’d like to update you on your application, so I would appreciate it if you would please write back letting me know a convenient time for me to call you (in Eastern time).

Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you.

I'm wondering what it could mean- any ideas?

Quick question: There's an alumni reception in my city next wednesday that admitted students are invited to. Should I attend? I don't know anyone else going, and I don't really know what this is. Anyone have experience with this?

gah, lucky. I think I got a generic response from Holly Bennett saying thanks for your continued interest and patience blah blah blah I submitted a LOCI 3 weeks ago; clearly it has not done much to make them budge....

congrats again!

Early Dec submit here. Heard nothing. Not expecting to get in (great numbers, bad cycle).

Same.

And trying to gauge this silence is either procedural or indicative of WL.
