Hmm, interesting. Well good luck!

That is mighty odd...

If I see a Virginia number on my caller ID, I'm having me a heart attack. This whole "loljk, we'll get back to you later" think would be very upsetting.

Ive heard of this being a common occurence in years past. Have no idea what their reasoning is for it.

Some schools are closed for the week so don't be surprised by the lack of activity.

No classes doesn't equal "offices closed". I work in higher education, and I can pretty much guarantee that most people are required to work until tuesday or wednesday.

I sent my RD application on 11/5/12 and completed on 11/7/12. However, I e-mailed them today requesting to change my application type from RD to ED if it's possible and the director sent me an e-mail asking me to have a phone call discussion. Should I take this positively? I'm assuming he must be really busy going over other applications and it was weird for me to receive his e-mail asking for a phone conversation...please let me know what you guys think...also, any tips on how to prepare this telephone interview?

No special UVA expertise, but I would be prepared to explain why you did not originally submit ED. Before allowing you to gain any sort of boost from the ED designation, he may just want to ensure that your decision isn't based on having been rejected or WL'd elsewhere, but that you have genuinely decided UVA is the only place you want to go to school.

ANY access is a good thing. Be yourself and sell yourself, and you'll gain an advantage.

Sorry, I am not trying to challenge anyone here. I am solely basing it off a couple conversations with admissions offices. Vandy, in particular, denied my request for an on-campus interview for this week because, "we won't be here."

I worked in higher ed administration for a little while and our office only closed on legit federal holidays (it was a public school) -- any non-federal holiday that the students got off we still worked through. Obviously this doesn't mean UVA admissions is open this week though.

I believe it's a mixed bag. I've heard from an admissions office today, but have not heard from others I expected would be working. Your note was valuable in tuning the expectations of a gang of nail-biters...I for one appreciate it.

In via phone call just now. Full tuition scholly. Still shaking a bit at the news, didn't expect that big of a package.

Also am waiting on HLS today, soooo, anxiety + excitement = jittery all day...

And FYI, a VA number didn't come up! It came up as unknown and I almost didn't answer because I tend not to answer blocked calls and unknown calls.

Oh that's quite good to know, thanks! Now I know what to look for on the off chance they decide to call.
