Yes, VA resident.


Ahh, that's a really great background! Way to go! Again, congrats! :)

What kind of stuff do people normally write about in "Why UVA" optional essays? I'm sort of drawing a blank and don't want to sound overly "bullshitty."

Depends on what you want to do. If you have an idea about where you'd like to end up, find out how uva gets you there.

Is it suggested to write a Why UVA? I applied late october and have not heard anything. I submitted a diversity statement instead of a why essay

Yes, unless you covered Why UVA in your diversity statement or personal statement.

I submitted a couple weeks back and didn't include one either. Should I send one in? Or too much of an afterthought?

I've talked to quite a few applicants who I suggested to send one in after they submitted, and they seem to have been getting a good response. I say go for it.

Happy almost New Years applicants. I caught up on my PMs today, so if you've been waiting for me to reply, you should have a message now. Hope to see you all this year :). Next year we will be celebrating the end of the first semester!
