UVA does interview for YP, but most interviews are conducted just to obtain additional solidifying information that allows the admissions committee to feel strongly about issuing the acceptance. In any case, UVA notifies all admitted students via phone call, and they will usually ask a few questions before letting you know you've been admitted, so I guess you could really say all admitted students had at least a small interview.

When you got the acceptance call, did you get scholarship information?

This was what occurred most of the time in previous cycles, but UVA is doing it differently this year. According to admissions reps no scholarship offers will be going out until spring.

They will usually email you asking for times your available or to call the office as soon as possible, so make sure you have access to a phone at those times.

So I'm still sitting with no status date on my UVA status checker, and it doesn't specify if it's complete (got the checker about 10 days ago). Does that information ever fill in? Apologies if I missed this elsewhere in this thread

After you guys have gotten the call saying you've been admitted, is there any change to the status checker?

Had my phone interview today with the director of admissions. For those wondering, yes, the first question is "so why do you want to go to UVA?"

Convo went well. Lasted 15 minutes.

Not for a few days-- then, after a couple days, the heading changes to "congratulations on your admission; a packet will be arriving shortly" or something to that effect.

If you're in YP territory, it is mostly Why UVA questions to ensure that you want to go there (does not hold true for ED apps). If you're a borderline it may be to feel gaps that the admissions committee is lacking in your app. I believe tpfennin's questions revolved around past experiences and Why UVA for the most part. According to him/her the rest was mostly information that was given by the interviewer (not sure which he interviewed CF, JD, or AR, but I think AR is traveling now, so probably not her) regarding campus culture, honor system, etc. S/He was also given an opportunity to ask some questions at the end. (total 25-30 minutes). This is probably a good example for a typical interview and what to expect, so if you're ready for questions about yourself and past experiences, and you have some questions prepared to ask, then you should be fine. Others will be shorter - I think for most candidates that are an easy call it probably only lasts for around 15 minutes from what previous posters are reporting. HTH

In!!!!!!

Complete: 10/7
Interview Request: 10/21
Interview: 10/28

Interview details: Lasted about 10 minutes and questions focused on "Why UVA", my work experience, and one of my hobbies. It was pretty relaxed and didn't feel like an interview. PM if you are interested in specific questions that were asked.

Checking in, probably won't send my app in until next week, since I'm still passing it under a few eagle eyes to help me button it up and make sure it's well-polished.

Congratulations to all those who are already in! I bet it feels really good to know this early :D

Hmm I had my interview like 4 weeks ago and still haven't heard anything. 3.7x/17x engineer so I thought I'd have a good shot. He said I'd hear more in a couple weeks, not sure if I should ask them when to expect something else or what.

UVA's one of my top choices for geographic placement.

That's great, I saw your earlier post about your score, I'm glad you fought against the odds and applied (even though everyone was telling you otherwise, sign of great potential). Congrats, congrats, congrats! Did you end up applying ED?
