Damn, I must have done something wrong on my application. Guess its LOCI time!

Did you write a LOCI or Why UVA or any of that fun stuff?

I wonder if 169 is the new median?


So we obviously won't know definitively until they publish the numbers after the cycle, but it looks to me like the reason they're bringing in the 169/3.6 folks is that they managed the medians well and are trying to bring in folks who will pay sticker (or close to it) and while increasing the 25% numbers.

I looked at some cuts of the LSN data to try and get an idea of what the actual class looks like and it seems like it's right in line with last year's numbers, with no LSAT drop.

To create my class profile, I used profiles that listed acceptance (either accepted or waitlist, accepted) and removed profiles that listed withdrawal. I considered relying on only those who affirmatively designated "A" (for attending), but it turned out that this cut of the data did not match the actual class profile as well as the non-withdrawn acceptance cut did.

2011-2012 Cycle wrote:GPA (25%/50%/75%) LSAT (25%/50%/75%)
LSN Data:
GPA (3.54/3.88/3.95) LSAT (166/170/172)
Actual UVA class (from website)
GPA (3.53/3.87/3.93) LSAT (164/170/171)

As you can see, the LSN data from last cycle closely matches the actual data, except it slightly overstates the 25th and 75th LSAT percentiles.

Now for this year:
2012-2013 Cycle wrote:LSN Data
GPA (3.58/3.83/3.92) LSAT (168.5/170/173)

It's worth noting, that the 170 median is strongly protected in this year's LSN data (currently, the 39th percentile is a 170 - the 39th percentile of last year's LSN data is also a 170...), so I don't think 169 is the new median.

"trolling for people to pay sticker" crossed my mind as well. They are ignoring 169s with higher GPAs who are more likely to have decent scholarships at Duke/Cornell/etc. and wouldn't pass those up for sticker at a peer school.

Wrote a Why UVA with my application initially, sent in a LOCI a couple weeks ago. Also a VA resident.

Looking forward to tomorrow's weekly update. I'm guessing the usual: "Good news! We accepted a bunch of waitlisters who aren't you this week, and we'll be doing the same again next week."

At least we've had enough of them by now that my heart won't automatically skip a beat when I see an email from UVA Law in my inbox this weekend. Every time I get excited over what turns out to be another mass waitlist update, I die a little inside. ;(

I actuallly appreciate the updates. I am WL at several schools which absolutely never communicate, ever. So it's nice that they are keeping the door open to invite the conversation.

Agree with you about my heart no longer skipping a beat. I really want to go to UVA, but at sticker--that's what makes my heart skip a beat!

Update came. It doesn't sound like they have many more positions open. I'm not sure at what point I give up hope and start planning on my backup school or retaking the LSAT.

Hey guys! Just wanted to drop a quick note. I'm no longer attending UVA this fall--figured such would bode well for all you on the waitlist! Moreover, and more to my point, I have a room in a 3BR at the Pavilion now and am looking for someone to take over (preferably a female who wants a parking pass and free furniture). Please let me know if you'd like it and we can work through the details.

Best of luck to you all!

Not sure whether to be grateful for opening up a spot for us waitlisters, or upset at the total tease of advertising Charlottesville leasing options to a bunch of people who haven't even been admitted yet :wink:

Definitely grateful because I have that much faith you'll get in. :) I'm sorry, just trying to be helpful. Didn't know where else to go to target people who'll be getting off the waitlist.

So basically no new offers until June 10-11th? Also is it definitive that nobody receives merit aid off WL?

I got merit aid off the waitlist and I know of one other person who did as well.
