I got the same email.


Why is Dean Richard sending out an email at 11:40 PM?

Probably read this thread, saw people freaking out about not hearing from her when she promised, then wrote an email and sent it before 12 AM so she could not be accused of being a liar by the TLS crowd.

LOL. I was actually thinking that may be it. BigZuck, I think you and I are the most pro-Duke, non-Duke students on TLS :)

I found the message kind of promising, actually. The very fact that they're still planning to make first-pass offers next week—which doesn't seem to have been the case at the same point last year—strikes me as a good sign.

Not a guarantee by any stretch, but there's hope yet.

It might have been an auto-email set to be sent out after all the offers had been made.

Someone just checked into the spreadsheet with a new acceptance (170/3.6). Guessing they've started making calls again?

EDIT: Never mind—just saw that nimo checked in on the thread earlier!

It looks like Dean Richard is out of the office today, which might explain the absence of acceptances. Best of luck tomorrow folks. I would love to see all of you this fall in Charlottesville.

I don't think so. Pretty sure UVA is like Columbia in that they prefer a slow, tortuous death rather than a swift and merciful one.

Looking at previous threads, at least in 2011, they began releasing people from the waitlist (ie WL-ding) in mid-May. Don't know if they still practice this, though.

Just received a call after phone interview last week (with no offer of admission). I am in today off of the wait list.
Have until May 15th to decide.

Those who are getting in off the WL should either
A. Post their stats.
B. Indicate their stats are in profile.
C. Indicate they will only reveal stats via PM or not at all.

Thanks for your TLS courtesy! :)

So Sorry about the lack of information. I am just too excited to think straight.
I am a true splitter: LSAT/170, GPA/ 3.3.
I was called for an interview last week and received no offer of admission. I assumed that since all TLS posters were getting offered admission with their phone calls, that they were not impressed with me. I was a really discouraged camper after that. But today they called back and offered me admission. Good luck to all !

Thanks for the additional info!

Starting to think I definitely need to write a LOCI. How long was yours, if you don't mind me asking? I have yet to write one, and have little to no idea what I'm doing.

You really have a 169/3.3?

Has the 170 wall just come tumbling down!?!?!?!?!

For those who have just gotten in: any mention of scholarships/aid? I'm trying to write a negotiating letter and am wondering if there really isn't money going out right now.

ETA: The admissions office is now closed for the day; anyone want to hazard a guess as to whether this is it for the week (and probably for a long while), or whether they'll continue trickling out tomorrow?

If the great 170 wall has truly fallen then I expect a TON of movement as they will start going after all the 169/3.7 types. I have been saying all cycle that I think a median drop is probable but UVA might actually be immune because of their increased generosity, the fact that "retake, ED UVA" is a real thing that many people will do (oftentimes foolishly IMO, especially this cycle), and their impressive overall game.
