Anyone have no call and just receive an email acceptance or packet in the mail?
Would like to hear from VA in-state people too.
I bolded the applicable parts for ease.
First, do they interview everyone? No. 99% of people who are offered admissions? Yes. Do they call everyone they offer admissions to? Yes.
Second, ED, yes they will more than likely get an interview if the adcomm is interested just like most RD applicants. Borderline/overqualified - this was more of the protocol employed by UVA in past cycles. This cycle, most everyone is getting an interview if they have a shot. Out of state status does not have a bearing on whether you receive an interview or not (in state does, as you are going against less applicants for more spots, speaking relatively).
Third, UVA calls applicants to offer admissions. There have been a couple without an interview though (see a few pages back).
Fourth, in-state applicants, that's me, if you have more questions specific to resident applications, let me know.
