So if someone went complete late October/early November, and hasn't heard a peep, should they be worried? According to the spreadsheet I should be.

>75th LSAT, 26th-49th GPA

Just admitted. Interview was really pleasant and I think basically to ensure that you're not a psycho. No curveball questions, very informal.

Sorry to hear that, you guys :(. It sounds like UVA takes quite a few people from the waitlist, though, so fingers crossed for you both!

Complete late October and just received interview request. Had a weird semi-interview request before when they were on campus at my undergrad (but I'm not in undergrad anymore). Yay movement!!!

Submitted in early Oct.
>75 LSAT
>25 GPA

Waitlist (last week, just had the courage to post it now). Was pretty shocked and upset. I know my GPA was below the median, but UVA's median is really high so I thought my 17x LSAT would help balance my 3.8x GPA.

Bummed.

I can't tell what UVA is doing this cycle. are all these WLs normal for them? I know they love YP, but seriously??

To be honest, this is gonna make me sound like a dick, but no I didn't because I didn't think I needed to. I went to a peer school in VA for undergrad and I felt that that was enough of a connection for them to know that I was a serious student and that I would choose to stay in VA again.

if you were YPed, then you could probably get off that waitlist if you write a loci and talk about why you want to go there. i think this was discussed earlier in this thread, but UVA admits a lot of students off of the waitlist. good luck!
