Wow, sorry to hear that. Kind of shocking. With those numbers I think you are in good shape at some other really great schools though.


Thanks, I appreciate it. I've been hoping it's not a bad omen for other places

I'm really sorry for those of you receiving news that isn't the best, but it does sound like there is movement on this wait-list.

Have we confirmed whether it was one wave or not?

I got an email from one of their admissions deans asking if we could set up a time to "discuss your application" and saying he could talk by phone or Skype. There wasn't an official scheduling system like for HLS or Chicago interviews, I just replied suggesting a time that worked for me the following day and gave him a call then.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/lv? ... alse&gid=0 I'm confused how some got waitlisted according to this spreadsheet. I guess it's a small sample size tho and it's not all about numbers. :? :(

They will send you an email asking to set up a time to discuss your application, either through Skype or telephone. You could either just call them back to setup a time (or do the interview right then if they are available) or email them back with prospective times. I just called though because it is easier than email.

I hope this is what you wanted to know, I am sure RCO will have more information.

you know, it's kind of endearing to know that all of us got our waitlisted asses kicked by UVA on the same day and in the same way.

edited to actually make sense.

Wow, I'm close to a lot of these numbers, and haven't had an interview request. UVA is pulling some weird stuff today...

It will be interesting to see how well this gambit works for them.

Also, good luck to all the waitlisters!

Also waitlisted today (3.4x , 173). I didn't write a Why UVA, perhaps now would be a good time to do that?

Yay!!! That is awesome. How did you do that? :lol:[/quote]

I used Mylsn, assigned a super wide range( 120-180, 2.0-4.5), and then copy and pasted the waitlist-accepted into excel to count them.

I applied at the end of October and, other than strange quasi-interview request email from them about a week after my application was sent in, I haven't heard anything.

Did the recent batch of waitlisted folks include anyone who applied in late November? I applied the week of Thanksgiving and haven't had any movement at all. Now I'm starting to wonder if I should be prepared to get put on the WL.

Ahh, I see. That is super useful! Thank you for sharing. Although that reveals that the odds of coming off the waitlist are pretty damn bleak.

I applied 10/31
Complete 11/4
Still waiting :/ but my hopes are getting more and more trampled by the minute haha

I am no admissions expert, but I did apply to UVA last year and was waitlisted.

Last year they sent my WL offer this exact same day (it was a different day, but the same # date). I had applied late Oct. then. This time I applied late Nov. (Thanksgiving week), but have not heard from them yet. So, who knows?

I'm hoping it was YP but I'm really unsure... 3.5X/173 here and... yeah...

Some part of me feels like UVA overplayed its hand... But it's the bitter part of me. I'm just surprised to be getting interviews or getting in elsewhere and to suddenly be halted by UVA.

I think that because they try and get verbal confirmations from their admits, they have a very high yield rate (one of the highest in the country). Once they fill up their applicant pool, they probably don't lose many to attrition.

I still don't have a decision, but I'm thinking UVA might receive a "Why UVA?" addition to my application tonight :lol:

Still waiting here. Hoping that surviving the WL wave was a good sign.

For what it's worth, I think a lot of people come off the UVA wait list in late summer. My sister was accepted in August the year she applied. That was 2005-2006, so obviously it was a very different cycle, but I believe a number of her classmates who were accepted from the WL were also admitted in mid- to late summer. Don't know how the applicant pools will compare though. People are less willing to pay sticker now even at top schools, and my understanding is that UVA doesn't throw money at people. It's possible more admitted students will decline now if they don't get scholarships.

Woah. I guess I better hop in the discussion now that I'm caught up. I think the interview process was covered as far as how it happens, so if there is more clarification needed there, ask. A couple of things to keep in mind now that the first wave has gone out, and people are kind of up in the air wondering. UVA reportedly did accept close to 20% of its entering class from the wait list last year. I do not expect that to be the case this year. First, overall there is about a 15% decrease in applications to schools in general. This is making UVA take a holistic approach to reviewing applications. This is also why we've seen some really low scores get accepted, and some really high scorers rejected/WL'd. Second, I would not count on the YP theory this cycle. UVA is interviewing those that were in the YP area if they met the other qualifications (this goes back to the holistic approach). So, overall, I would say that if you were near YP stats and a candidate that they were considering you would have most likely received an interview request that would have been utilized to get a sense of your desire to attend UVA vs. your hope to use them as a safety school, and if they decided to offer admissions they would have most likely attempted to gain a verbal understanding that you will attend before offering admission. Third, UVA is lowering its class size for the second year in a row, so this is giving them the ability to be more selective in those that they offer admissions to. For those of you still waiting, I wouldn't be too startled by this, it is rather common for a large batch of WL/rejections to come out around this time. If you did not submit a Why UVA, now may be the time. Also, I cleaned up my inbox again this afternoon, so feel free to throw more at me if you're still nervous and have questions. Best of luck to everyone.
