This is going to make applicants flock to UVA. I'm really glad to see the issues of BirdLaw finally take flight.

Don't forget Crowe.
Virginia is really winning me over y'all.

Edit: just realized Robin and Crowe are the same person, which makes this all even better.

I was an international student who attended with similar stats, though I was in-state and ED. I was admitted within 24 hours. I think in 2011 admission was a little more cutthroat than today.

Do you have anything that makes you stand out as an international applicant - hopefully that's made very clear in your PS. Also, I'd suggest why X statements for every school you apply to - find a way to tie your international experience to something unique about the school.


Thanks for the comment. My why x essay connects my career goals to UVA law but doesn't touch on a unique aspect of the law school. Could have certainly done what you have suggested but too late for it. Not expecting much.

So I got a considerable scholarship offer (not a Dillon) that is contingent on maintaining a 2.3. Anyone have any insight on how difficult that is at UVA? I know a lot of people say to ignore a scholarship offer if a GPA requirement is attached.

Getting a 2.3 at UVA would require considerable effort and specialness. That GPA requirement is effectively nonexistent.

Yeah I have the same offer and my understanding is that if you have a 2.3 you should be dropping out, not worrying about your scholarship- curve is a 3.3 average I believe. Basically it's a "if you don't literally fail you keep this scholarship" offer.

I've also read somewhere that professors at T14s very rarely hand out Cs, so I don't think a 2.3 is something to worry about.

Does anybody know about how long I should expect to hear back from my interview? I interviewed with Grace on 1/13. 164/3.98/non-URM.

Does UVA normally stick to the 15 business day response for ED applicants? I'm on day 11 with no interview request...should I assume its a ding/waitlist?

I got in via status checker the next day, but during the interview, my interviewer said that decision times vary and that it could take up to a couple of weeks.

Did you receive scholly info with acceptance or have you recently gotten it? I was admitted back in November and am hoping for some money but have yet to hear anything.

Have most of y'all been getting interview requests before or after going UR2?

Same boat, similar stats. Either they're gonna WL us, I guess for yield protection, or they're just taking a bit longer than most schools. My guess is still the latter. Definitely keep hoping, imo.

I am in a similar position except UR 11/8 and predicting I will be be waitlisted near the end of the cycle. This seems to happen to applicants every year who aren't selected by Feb. with a few outliers.

I've been UR2 since 12/12. It's probably not going to turn out well, considering how quickly I have heard from other schools.

I got my interview request like around 6 days after it went review and then got in after 7ish business days. Remember it's 15 business days and not 15 days, so you still definitely have hope! Good luck :)
