The interview is with Grace Cleveland- can someone tell me what to expect, questions and vibe wise, and what this maybe means chances wise?


First: Congrats! Interviews are definitely a good thing.

Second: Everyone on the admissions staff is awesome. From what I've gathered (including my own interview experience), interviews with Grace tend to be a little shorter than with Chris or Dean Faulk (so maybe it will be more structured/methodical than their interviews). Vibe is almost always friendly/conversational with their staff.

Chances: I don't know, but most people hear decisions pretty quickly after interviews, so you shouldn't have to wait too long to find out.


Thank you!!!! Any reason why Skype would be better than phone call? I think I would prefer a phone call, but if anyone has any advice on that I'd appreciate it.


FWIW I opted for a phone call instead of Skype and was admitted at the end of the call. You probably have the potential to make a better impression through Skype, but I also think you somewhat limit the damage you can cause by a bad interview if there's no video component.

Has anyone had any luck negotiating merit aid with UVA? I really want to attend, but they wouldn't budge when I tried negotiating with Michigan's offer :?

Hello all, I'm going to apply next cycle so I've just been lurking around but now I've got a question. Did anyone who applied ED end up getting any $$. I'll be a splitter next year and was thinking about ED but I don't want to throw the possibility of $$ out the window. Thanks in advance.

Got an interview request yesterday, after being under review for a while. Fingers crossed! If no aid is offered, not sure I can rationalize it, but would love to get in regardless!

FINALLY ACCEPTED after this wild ride: submitted 10/31, UR1 12/1, UR2 2/7, UR3 2/20, interview request 3/21, interview 3/22 (which ended with what i'm going to refer to as the "grace unofficial yes") and accepted 3/23. Just realized the deposit deadline is in like 3 weeks..... i'm totally calm :shock:

anyway for anyone who thinks theres no chance they'll get an interview request.... try not to lose hope!!!

No luck on scholarship negotiation. Said they're tapped out on funds
