Congrats! Would you mind PMing numbers? Like several others, I am desperately waiting for an interview.


Their post history indicates a 160/4.08

As for the interview, see my response to you in the UVA Class of 2020 thread.

Congrats, this is your admission interview! I had mine with Grace Cleveland in October. It was over the phone and she was really sweet. The whole thing felt conversational and casual. Just be prepared to talk about why you'd like to go to UVA, what you imagine your ideal career trajectory might look like (you don't need anything super concrete for this) and what spurred your interest in law. Show that you've done your homework and know about what makes UVA exceptional, too.

Grace is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Just relax and enjoy it. It means they are really interested in you and want to get to know you better.

@Cooley don't sweat it dude, my friend was herself during her interview and played it cool - Grace offered admission the next morning via a 2nd call. Good Luck!!

Agree. Biggest piece of advice would be to have a lot of questions for them prepared (beyond what I would deem customary).

There's no way this level of neuroticism is real.

It was fairly egregious. It showed up as "I will happy to do so" rather than "I will be happy to do so". I was typing on my phone and the "be" didn't register apparently.


Realistically she probably didn't notice it (our brains fill in words we're expecting to read quite often). You need to chill man

"Too do so" would be egregious. At most this is careless (and your interviewer couldn't care less if done once).

I'm considering adding "Sent from my iPhone" in my email signature, so that my typos will be forgivable.

I'm sending you a tub of xanax. an actual bathtub full of it.

chill! you are more than okay. remember, you landed an interview, i.e. you did something right. don't let the nerves trip you up when you've already come so far.

I know it sucks but don't worry too much, it's not bad. It took me a few readings over to catch it, you just forgot a word. It's not like your phone changed a word to something nonsensical or it was misspelled.

Just don't make the same mistake while you're speaking in your actual interview. (Although, tbf I had a coughing fit in the middle of mine, so... that went well. Whatever, they let me in.)

While I haven't interviewed at UVA, I can speak to my experience with Georgetown. I also felt my alumni interview on Skype was a bit rushed. However, I got an acceptance a week letter and the handwritten note mentioned a high recommendation from my interviewer. I don't think you should be worried. I'm sure you nailed it.

p.s. I hope you remembered to mention lula43 is patiently waiting to hear from them re: interviewing. haha!

Exact opposite of my experience. I had Chris Colby - favorite interview of this cycle. He was super cool and easy to talk to. Our interview lasted about 50 minutes (I was expecting 20).

Now UChicago on the other hand...

Same interviewer, mine was short. She warned me it would be super quick, and it was. (Accepted next day)
