It's pretty widely agreed that in order to get admitted, you either have to have an interview, or meet with admissions staff in some other avenue (LSAC forum, etc)

That's very interesting. I was accepted in early OCTOBER and still no movement on scholarships. Was told that scholarship info would be sent out in early March. Did you get a really fantastic amount of money or something?

Total. If I got 55k a year that would certainly classify as fantastic amount of money lol

Got a $60k merit scholarship today to use on top of GI Bill, which was a very pleasant surprise. Financial aid committee is still working for those who are wondering. Admitted early/mid-November (can't remember exactly).

Are they going to classify it as a living stipend so you get to keep it? Also, how were you notified?

Yes, I called to clarify and they said they take that into account for vets so you don't just lose it (otherwise I was going to give it back). I was notified by a letter in the mail today; it's probably online too, but I haven't checked that.

That's amazing! Getting paid 20k a year + housing to go to a T-10 school is awesome. Hopefully I'll hear something about scholarships soon.

Interview requested, which is nice I guess. I assumed they had forgotten about me. I applied Mid-November.

That was the case for me so I assume it is for everyone else

That is awesome! Congrats. I didn't know uva did this for Vets. Do you mind posting your stats? I'm applying next cycle and uva is the dream.


172/3.6. A lot of work experience and some good military-related softs. I wasn't really expecting anything, so it was a nice bonus on top of everything else. Good luck to you, but if you're nukes you're gonna kill it.

Does everyone get a "curveball" question in the interview? I saw some asking for the worst day of their lives, etc. What have others' experiences been?

I think that was Chicago. That was a little more intense. But UVA seems to be the standard: why law, why uva, etc.
