Dang UVA is throwing a lot of money at people with competitive stats. Doesn't seem like there has been much Splitter love outside of ED. But maybe this is usually how it is?

There's been a decent amount of RD splitter love.

Definitely. I'm a reverse splitter and I got in with some money.

Sorry for the mistake. Correction: UVA doesn't seem to be showing ME any splitter love.

I can't wait for you "splitters" to start trickling up to HYS so this cycle can start moving a little more.

There are a multitude of factors leading me to think that there is probably an 80% chance of me ending up in Charlottesville next year barring some serious $$$ from HCCN.

I would email him. "Hey I met you at X and you told me to lkeep you updated when I applied...." then end with something along the lines stating that you arent asking for a special favor or anythjing just checking in.

I wouldn't say the thing at the end because it goes without saying.

I wouldn't say any of this just because it sounds like you don't have anything to say. If you haven't already submitted, might throw a sentence about a nice meeting/discussion with him into your Why UVA. Even if the director you met doesn't read your app, it shows a level of interest without the awkward email.

Hopefully you all enjoy as much as I did.

Missed a call from the Admissions office while I was in class today! Called back, got one of the deans' answering machine. Should I have left a message? What is the protocol for this?

Just had a brief phone interview regarding what I'm currently doing/will be doing and why UVA.

I was told it was in preparation for possible questions the committee would have in reviewing my application.

The Dean I believe, but I was a bit flustered at the beginning so I forget the name.

That's... weird. Maybe they're debating whether to throw a full ride at you or not?

I didn't write a Why UVA? so maybe that was a reason why.


I'm not sure the reasoning, guess only time will tell. Maybe Y/P, maybe scholarship considerations..maybe neither.

It was brief and informal, but she was very enjoyable to talk to.

The dean of the school seems to be a guy so maybe it was dean of admissions

I received an email this morning inviting me to call the Dean of Admissions to talk about my application, I called and he asked me a couple questions regarding if I was still interested and if there was anything else admissions should know before they make their decision and then I was offered ADMISSION!!

He told me I was accepted and that I would be getting $$. It was a great conversation and he was SO nice. If you get this email definitely don't stress and just be honest. Best of luck to everyone!
