That is awesome! The thing is, some of us have taken the LSAT three times already :wink:

Good to hear other people applied mid-November and haven't heard anything - I'm in the same boat.

I'm pretty sure UVA has lost my application at this point. Been complete since September and heard nothing.

I'm in YP territory, so I fully expected to get wait listed once others started getting emails particularly because my app was not at all UVA-centric. Surprisingly, I didn't get one. Anyone else in the same boat?

RD.
Median LSAT, no GPA (international student)
Kind of a reach and I don't know how friendly they are towards international students, but thought I should try. Also did the "Why UVA" essay.

Has everyone who is RD and gotten in, been interviewed? Aka is the interview a prerequisite to admission like it is for Harvard.

What is everyone's experience with the interview? Questions asked? Also, never used Skype so would prefer phone interview. Does preferring a phone interview over Skype reflect poorly as an applicant?

Thanks in advance!!!!

If you can do skype, I would. Test it out with some friends first, maybe, but it feels much more personal and if you can follow their preferences, it seems like a good idea.

I'm sure some people will message you with their offbeat questions, but mine was very conversational, and focused a lot on my WE. It was obvious he had read my resume/essays very very closely, so be prepared for that. I also had 5-6 questions prepared and as I was NOT asked Why UVA (despite hearing that's what everyone is asked) felt like that was my space to express why I am interested in UVA. So definitely have questions prepared! Overall, though, it was pretty easy as far as interviews go.
