Probably wouldn't be horrible to find out when the admissions office or welcome center type thing (if one exists) is open despite official tours ending by asking a UVA student and then taking a self guided tour and stoping by to say hey. Also I believe it is normal to send in a written LOCI after a campus visit around January-ish.
I highly doubt campus visits really matter that much though, so don't be like taking out a loan to pay for the trip.
Okay, thanks for that. I'll just sit tight and reassess a potential visit in a month or so.
