You don't need one (we have, I believe, two cases of that on here), but getting one is a very good sign.


The people who didn't interview met with a dean or someone from admissions in person through an appointment or at an LSAC forum

Ah, I forgot that. Thanks.


Can confirm that, as I am (I believe) one of those two cases. When I visited a couple weeks after submitting my application I asked to speak to someone in admissions (I didn't have an appointment) and it turned out to be one of the directors of admissions. We ended up talking for about 10-15 minutes about the program in general and my interests. Had NO idea that would count as an interview. Needless to say, if you can visit and speak to someone, definitely do it!!



Somewhat hoping this happens when I visit in a week, mainly bc I've been ur2 for 3 weeks :0

Under review, status date: 10/27/2016. Is it appropriate to send a LOCI?

I can't imagine it would hurt. Though I have come across schools that ask you not to on their websites, so poke around first.

I would ask them first if it's okay. But I don't think it's that big of a deal.

Well I think I was originally wrong, I actually had my interview the first week of January. But I just got admitted so I guess a month isn't necessarily a bad sign

Anyone else who is an early admit receive scholarship info recently? As in, that wasn't in your acceptance package. It's surprising that there have been so few given out so far (I say as a late October admit with no $$$ info yet :/).

Through the status checker. Checking it just kinda became part of my daily routine and today it was finally something different.

Quick question. Have been sitting at UR1 since 11/29 with radio silence from UVA.

GPA 3.98, LSAT 170, non-URM, non-KJD.
I didn't write an addendum/Why UVA. Have heard back from other T-14s already.

Think it's time to submit a Why UVA / LOCI?

Same boat as you, so I've been keeping an eye out. One person was admitted in September and got a Dillard in the mail postmarked late December, and another September admit got $135K about 2-3 weeks ago, but it's only been those two I believe :/

Early November admit. Same boat. The decision letter said end of February but someone commented on the admitted students page on Facebook saying they talked with someone in admissions who said they were expecting to send them out in early march

I got my scholarship info a few days after being accepted (was accepted in 1/31). Not sure why they'd send me my scholly info and not people who were admitted back in 2016

Got it, thanks. Hard to believe they would need between September and now to know how much money they want to give me... :(

No idea as to either. I suppose I could always get someone to pick up my lease if I change my mind. Only options left are unfurnished tho :/
