For any splitters out there who get waitlisted/rejected from UVA, be sure to check this thread by Samara out for some REALLY helpful advice:

:( sorry, bud. Hopefully you get good news from them later.

Hey, it happens. Good luck to you! How much work are you getting done today? Are you in full on :shock: ?

lol, yeah, I'm obsessively checking my phone reception and status checker. When did you go complete?

Sorry to hear that Dr Filth. I'm sure you'll get off the waitlist. Focus on the rest of your cycle and chin up.

@alwayssunnyinfl - ctmx and I applied literally 10 minutes after the applications opened up and are so far the only ones with acceptances. We were both complete as of 9/6. My status checker still says complete/under consideration (though I have an email with the subject line "UVA Law - Happy Birthday!") that says otherwise.

For posterity's sake, I've updated my LSN profile with more info in case anyone was curious about my softs/other application specifics. No mention of a scholly, but that was expected. Good luck to everyone else! I'll be stopping in to check this thread pretty frequently. I'm also going to update the first post with people who are accepted AND attending. Don't forget to stop by the UVA c/o 2016 thread as well (also linked in the first post).

Ah, good. I went complete on the 8th, so all hope is not lost if I don't hear anything today. Congrats again, everyone!

I sent one a month or so ago with a separate question.

Never got a response.

I first got the status checker email on 9/5 and it said complete at that point (so Thursday is the absolute latest I could hear). I'm still hoping for a call today. No call or email as of yet. I'm getting my other apps ready, though, just in case.

FYI, if you're accepted the status should say the following a few hours after the phone call (my phone call was at 11:45 fwiw):
Congratulations, you've been admitted to the Class of 2016! We look forward to welcoming you to the law school. An admission letter is en route via regular mail, and you'll receive additional information about us periodically during the upcoming months via email, but we hope you will take us up on offers to put you in touch with people in our community or among our famously loyal (and successful) alumni who can help you learn more about opportunities available to you here, and the long-standing and deeply rooted characteristics of the Virginia Law community.
This might change slightly if you get a scholly (Dean Richard didn't mention one and I'm not expecting one).

Is everyone who has heard back today a VA Resident? Or are some out-of-state.

That would be a huge loss for prospective LS applicants. Maybe they will hand the reigns off to someone else, or one of our resident programmers (Mr. MyLSN.info, maybe) could find a way to carry over the old data onto a new website.

Late to the party here, but got in earlier in the day via call!

About my app: ED went complete 9/6, reverse splitter above 75th (with a retake that made a biiig score bump & relevant addendum), non-resident, non-URM, 2ish years WE, awesome LORs, OK PS, no why-UVA but got my face in front of admissions staff a few times (LSAC conferences, campus visit) to express my genuine interest.

Hoping for the best for all of you waiting/WL'd!

Would you PM me for your stats if you don't mind? I would be a reverse splitter too(GPA over 75th), so I really need to know the trend before the Oct score comes out..Thx! :D

They just updated the cycle options. There is now information specific to 12-13.

Starting to get discouraged...no call or email yet...and only 2 more days left in the 15 since my application went complete...I'd like to just know...one way or the other...especially now that some of the other 9/1 submission, 9/5 completes have heard back...

Accepted via phone call today.

This was my third year applying to law school, and my second time applying ED to UVA (waitlisted last cycle, applied too late), so this is pretty exciting for me. About time, really.

ETA: Applied 09/01, in case you were wondering.

Mid-December. I couldn't find any examples of splitters EDing late like that, so I tried it.

As it turns out, ED to UVA is not a good back-up plan for splitters. It may be better for VA residents, reverse splitters, URMs, or people who are in some other way extra valuable, but for splitters who are not special in some other way, it's just too late.

disappointing =/ That is my backup plan atm, depending on Penn ED and RD acceptances. Hopefully this cycle might be a little more lenient if it comes down to it =/
