14 or 15 days.

I think there are three different interviewers but I hear most of the interviews are fairly casual and relaxed.

Wait, they really wait that long even though they have to give a decision like that day or the next?

They did for me at least and I know of a few others with the same situation.

I misspelled the word 'switch' in the subject line of an email I sent to the admissions office. Should I be mortified?

Lol calm down buddy! It's not likely the adcomm/interviewer will see the subject of your email. The admin assistant will add your essay and switch your status then update JD/AR with an updated file. The only reason to have cause for concern is if the response was from JD/AR/CF.

Early in the cycle I sent the admissions office a question via email asking if a snafu in the submission process (due to an LSAC internal error) would mal-affect my application or not... I had a severe concussion at the time and thought that mal-affect was a damn good word that's not used enough. However, I soon got the uneasy feeling that my concussed brain had completely made up said word. ...yep. The school wrote back saying that X issue would not "mal-affect" (<--their quotes) my application. Mortification.

:D gr9...hadn't heard that before (thought you might have missed the 8 ), but now that I'm in the know, you've made my day! Thanks also to RCO2012 for the encouragement...I am still hoping (with slightly unfounded optimism) for a few pleasant surprises this cycle. With complete dates going back to the dark ages of late Sept. and early Oct., and with the insecurity of a reverse-splitter, though, I have begun losing the faith as of late. Wishing speedy decisions to you all (...what's going to happen is going to happen, so it'd be nice to get on with decision making at OUR end)! Best of luck!!

gr9 is a fun one yeah.

I'm sure you'll get some pleasant surprises, and as a reveres splitter, your backup options are a lot more appealing than a regular splitter (can't retake a gpa :| ) , but good luck to ya too.

Hey everyone! After months of silence from UVA, I have finally been invited to interview so cue panic attack. From what I have read on this thread (and I have been lurking on TLS for months now), it sounds as if UVA throws some strange questions out during the interview. If any RD applicants who have already had their interview would PM me with details, I would be ridiculously appreciative!

And don't worry LEPWU, the admissions people probably just had a quick laugh and promptly forgot all about it. Or maybe decided that you are the next Shakespeare, since he invented all sorts of words. :)

Thank you!! As an aside, when did you get the interview request? (Today, Saturday? Or perhaps earlier in the week?) Congratulations!

Sorry guys! I didn't think how that would sound to a bunch of panicked 0Ls. No, I received my interview request last Thursday around noon. Weekends can still be relaxing times where one doesn't have to check status checkers thirty times an hour :D

How do I update my application to UVa with an additional addendum/essay?

Do I email it to lawadmit@virginia.edu and include my name, LSAC number, and describe the document?

Yes,That is what I did when I noticed a mistake on my application. They told me they would update the file, no big deal. :)

Feel free to PM me with your questions regarding interviews. Some of the questions are unique, many are not, but there is a good plan to utilize to prepare prior to the interview that I can share with you.

Yes, and depending on what the document is, you may want to explain why it was not included in the original application.
