Congrats!

You also are helping to support my theory lol :D


LS22- I think I am only half supporting your theory since my GPA is below median. Also you're going to have some some amazing schools to choose from, so don't worry!


Dang I forgot their median was that high. Maybe it's going to drop to 3.74 this cylce :D. Oh don't get me wrong, I am very happy with where I will end up at the end of this cycle. I'm truly happy you got in - a most sincere congratulations!! :)


Yeah, that high median GPA is what made me think I wouldn't get in. I'm on cloud 9 right now lol

Thanks Ohpo and Gooner (you did tell me so haha) :D

Waitlisted at UVA via email this morning.

Went complete early November. Stats: >75th LSAT, 25-50th GPA. I did write a Why UVA.

UVA wasn't my first choice, but still disappointing as I would have loved to have the option. Do they admit a lot of people off the waitlist?


wtf no this didn't happen i don't believe it

not THAT nice though. I have a "you worked hard and were kind of neurotic but also you don't do your works cited pages until the morning the essay is due" sort of GPA. as compared to the "essay has been complete and printed on nice paper" crowd who apparently fill UVAs class :/

TBF, I was always writing until the morning but important papers were submitted on cotton blend paper, which my professors mocked jokingly.

Also buying a ticket for the WL train if they're focusing on GPA's with a stronger lens this time round.

I may or may not have been guilty of printing very important essays on lined notebook paper :oops:

Congrats to all the recent acceptances! Sorry to hear about the WLs :(

I received an interview invitation via email around 2 hours ago.

Applied mid-Sept RD out of state
>75 LSAT, 25-50 GPA
Did not write a Why UVA

I fully expected a WL/ding after waiting so long to hear back. If you applied in Sept/Oct without hearing anything yet, I hope this gives you some relief that your interview is coming soon.

+1. I'm at the median so was hoping that this was going to be an acceptance. UVA isn't my first choice - I didn't write a Why UVA - and it's possible that this showed.

Anyone else out there in the same position apart from me and LS22?

I can testify to the fact that some who don't do the works cited page until the morning the essay is due fill UVAs class. I bet you'll get in!

Interesting, same stats and I even wrote a why UVA. I wonder what they didn't like :( .

On another note, what do you write in your LOCI if you already wrote a Why UVA?

I guess need to provide other reasons for why I want to attend. Any good resources out there for LOCI's?

OR you could just wait for your JS2!

Seriously though, general question: Can there be such a thing as too much alacrity when it comes to waitlists? I mean obviously if you've just been WL'd the assumption is that your interest still continues…I think LOCI are more powerful and meaningful later in the cycle when presumably you have the option of choosing between all the schools to which you applied.

People had to print their papers out? Most professors I had were OK with email attachments and many preferred them.

Is anyone out there still sitting pretty from a Sept/October submit without hearing anything from UVA? So that's two waves of WL and not a word..... :?


Similar situation (went complete early November and haven't heard anything yet :( ...)

+1 :?

Sorry to all the waitlisted applicants. UVA is becoming almost as much of a black box as Berkeley. Good luck to those of you who choose to stay on the waitlist.

Thanks Kershka :D I am still in blissful disbelief!

I think the people who were YP waitlisted could/should write a strong LOCI. It seems like UVA is really interested in the applicant's enthusiasm for and commitment to the school. I think my Why UVA essay (which I put a lot of time and heart into) helped me overcome my below-median GPA. But that's just my two cents.
