Yes, I think a Why UVA addendum would be a great idea at this point.
Last year, I was hearing crickets in mid february from UVA, so I wrote a Why UVA essay and e-mailed it in. I was admitted shortly after. They didn't throw me a dime, tho. (I think they may assume that you'll pay sticker if you're so interested that you write a why uva
, but maybe that's just due to my medianness.)
really dont think this is true, they have ED
Yeah, I probably read into it too much. Every T14 besides HYS does some form of YP, so if you're hearing crickets, then perhaps you're in the "will admit if interest is demonstrated" pile.
Edit: I also called and said that I was especially interested, hadn't heard back for a few months, and asked if I could speak with an adcomm. They got me in touch with Dean Dugas, we had a talk, he looked up my file, and said that writing a Why UVA might help. Perhaps that whole back and forth led me to the "really interested" pile.
