How long since submitting your app would people say it would be appropriate to send in a LOCI? I already wrote a Why UVA with my application when I sent it in December. Haven't heard anything since.

I think it's generally best to submit a LOCI only after you've been WLed. If you have received any new information since December that would help your application (promotion, thesis approval, elected SBP, won an Oscar, etc), definitely update them with a short letter/email.

Yeah, I should probably clarify that I didn't write a Why UVA originally.

In today via email! :D

Interviewed last week, the interviewer was super nice and personable and sent me a personalized email today.

This is definitely my most exciting acceptance--it doesn't even seem real!

Submitted 11/26
Complete 11/28ish
Interview Request Mid-February
Stats are in profile, but >75th LSAT, <25th GPA.

Congrats to the admits! Out of curiosity and concern, is it typical to be admitted during the interview? I was just told that they'd "be in touch soon."

I think a few people have been admitted during the same call. It seems that the "be in touch soon" is the typical response however.

What did you think of your interview?

That's kind of a relief. I thought the interview part was ok, but because the interview request was pretty early in the morning and very unexpected (they were just like can you call us basically right after they received my Why UVA), I wasn't prepared with questions to ask them, so I just asked a generic one and then got flustered.

Congrats! Were you in state or out of state? I just got WL with LSAT at 75% and 25%>GPA<50% :(
Complete 1/8, no interview request. Doesn't give me a lot of hope on the strength of my application...

I wouldn't question the strength of your app too much just from one WL. There are so many factors involved, especially with UVA (out-of-state, no why UVA, etc), and you can never really tell how your PS and softs will be seen by adcomms from different schools. My advice is stay optimistic and ride the CLS hold and UVA WL. If you've submitted "why X" essays and kept schools updated with your recent achievements, you've done all you can.

Did you email to thank your interviewer afterward? I kind of think I should, but I also don't want to appear pushy for a decision.

In today via email, no interview. LSAT > 75%, GPA 25-50%, out of state. No Why UVA, but didn't think it was necessary in my case.
