I would say overall outlook is bleak. Have you already submitted financial aid stuff to them (idk if they require FAFSA or not). On the off chance I get admitted, I wouldn't expect financial aid info to come with decision because I haven't submitted anything to them unless it's a merit offer.


UVA Law wrote:Need-based aid at the University of Virginia School of Law consists primarily of student loans. Pending availability of funds, need-based scholarships may be awarded. All admitted applicants who wish to be considered for scholarships in which demonstrated need is a component must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Most awards at UVA are merit based. The assumption seems to be that, since full funding is available to every applicant through federal loans, there isn't truly any 'need' for a scholarship.

If any of you get accepted this month or into April, I'd bet that scholarship info comes with acceptance like most of the other people that got scholarships and were admitted in 2017. It seems like only the early applicants had significant wait times from acceptance to scholly offer

I would be okay with a ding at this point. They're basically a no-go for me at this point because of the wait and me already falling in love with another school, I just want some closure

Went complete and UR1 on 2/28, just went UR2 today.

Wasn't sure if it was for everyone, given how the status tracker was down over the weekend.

Early January here. Lol. Any reasons we can arbitrarily ascribe to this to get some false hope?

UR2 usually means that you'll get some type of news soon. Either an Interveiw request or a ding/WL

I have heard no word and not had a single status change since I went complete in late October... Above both 75ths, should I just accept that this as a YP WL/ding and move on?

What's the protocol for this? Would you just send it in an email to admissions or is there a different way to submit additional information?

Real talk... Is UVA worth sticker price? It's my number one but I wasn't given any merit aid and I'm almost 100% certain they won't negotiate with the offers I do have (all t20)... :roll:

If you're 22 with no work experience, sure.
