Submitted 11/13.
Submitted Why uva in January.
Submitted LOCI today, and I was admitted today!



Congrats, sir.

And interesting. One wonders to what role the 2nd LOCI played in their decision making.

Concerning LOCIs, some people on these forums have been suggesting that to submit one might result in the appearance of desperation. When schools are receiving 8,000 applications, however, I think a thoughtful letter expressing interest is a perfect way to give the committee another opportunity to review your application.

Valid.

I sent a why UVA/LOCI hybrid letter on Jan 22 so I suppose I'll just have to wait and see. Probably too early to send another.

Something to keep in mind: when I spoke with Dean Dugas in January, he said that they would have most of their decisions out by March. Maybe send one next week...

Submitted 11/19, submitted a pretty heartfelt (or so I think) Why UVA 01/27, still no response.

Thinking about sending a LOCI, but I don't know what to put in it. I don't have any significant updates. Sigh...by the time they admit me, if they ever do, scholarship is probably already dried up.

I got an email today inviting me to call Faulk to discuss my application. From what I've read previously in this thread, that's a good sign, right? I unfortunately chose today to be the one day I didn't check my email all afternoon, so I now have to wait until tomorrow when his office is open to find out what's up.

Btw, for reference, I submitted Nov. 1, 172/3.84, Non-UVA res, Non-URM. I didn't submit a Why UVA, but I sent one in last week to make up for it.

Yay! This totally makes up for the fact that I got a rejection today. Time to set my alarm and call as soon as the office opens.

Obvious YP here. If you are actually interested send a Why essay/LOCI and start rolling in the dough. With that said, I am sure you have much more attractive offers on the table too.

Will being waitlisted effect my scholarship opportunities at UVA? The email implies I won't hear anything until May. Won't most scholarship dollars be spent by then?

The wording of the email makes it seem like a soft admit (if space were to allow). Maybe I need to take off the rose colored glasses...

Mine too, but then so did my ding from Berkeley. "If only we could admit all of you..." Yeah, yeah... noted.

Seeing you guys get waitlisted makes me feel much worse about my waitlist....though at least I hope they keep the in-state people in a different pile from the non-residents, since they save a certain % of their seats for us virginians. maybe this is all wishful thinking....

I am not sure where but someone earlier in this thread sent in a loci after being wailtlisted and was admitted within that same week. I would assume with your numbers money will be thrown at you if you really showed interest in the school. You are over both 75ths, so they just assume you are going to HYSCCN with money. At least that is my opinion of the situation.

Waitlisted.

174/3.9. Submitted in December.

I'm thrilled with my current options, so I'm just going to withdraw my application.

Good luck to everybody else!

I'm surprised I wasn't included in the WL wave today, based on some of the stats I'm seeing, but I'm only a month out so maybe that's too soon.
