+1 I told myself I'd give it one more week and then withdraw my application as to not give them the satisfaction...

Sorry if this has been asked before, but the Director of Admissions is requesting an interview with me scheduled for tomorrow (definitely short notice). But how has the interview been like for everyone? Casual? What questions should I prepare for?

If it's with Dean Faulk you stand a good chance of being admitted at the end of the interview if things go well. With Grace or Chris they usually* have to forward their assessment to the admissions committee for a decision.

That is pretty unusual but maybe sending them updated materials means that when you went UR2 it was them updating your profile and going UR3 is really going UR2. I was under the impression that UR3 doesn't happen to everyone but essentially means decision rendered.

Chris admitted me at the end of the interview.

Did it! It was so much fun! Slow pitch softballs are so much easier to hit super far than normal baseballs

Really? Are slow pitch softballs different? Maybe I'm crazy, but as a former varsity softball player, I can hit a baseball 2 or 3 times further than a softball....

I feel like UVA has a long wait time for a few reasons. 1, they interview everyone they are considering. 2, Their ED applications are open for a long time. 3, They don't have great yield so they really want to know who wants to attend. and 4, they enjoy torturing us. Looking at the C/O 2019 thread, there are some people who applied in September, October, and November who were waiting for answers till April.

You can definitely hit baseballs further than softballs, especially when they are pitched rather than tossed.

But it's obvious easily hitting slow pitch balls

Maybe I just suck at hitting baseballs then. Idk, the softball was just easier to hit, so it ended up going super far.

Been hopefully waiting since early January. In the meantime, my hopes for Duke and Cornell have been crushed and Virginia kinda ended up as a contender for my top choice as a result. C'mon UVA, I won't hurt your yield! Probably. :)

Just got a notification that UVA sent me a package, but I won't be able to get to it for a few weeks. Anyone else?

Yeah so the physics alone indicates the baseball can go much farther (smaller/more dense + increased speed = less air resistance/more complete energy transfer = much farther), but if you can't hit a baseball, then a softball will definitely go further.

Plus most 1Ls probably aren't fast-pitch softball players so you won't encounter too many issues.
