Yeah, it's totally normal. You should check out Law School Numbers' admission statistics page (I think that's what it's called). It's helped me a lot in terms of my expectations for receiving a decision.

I've been UR1 since 12/11 and I don't expect it to move any time soon, since I'm 164 and 3.49. UVA is definitely a reach school for me, but I can dream!

Thanks. Also, was there a spot on the application to submit a "Why UVA," or did people add it as an addendum? Could I still email one in?

I've been UR since 10/16. Slightly under both medians (168/3.85). :roll:

Also being ghosted by UVA. Been UR1 since 10/31. I'm expecting a ding, though, given that I'm at their median LSAT and below 25th GPA.

There was no specific spot. You can email them one at any time.

I actually uploaded mine under the Optional Addendum section. You can upload multiple files to one section btw.

+1 to this. And as Meelo said, you can add multiple doc's to the addendum option

Accepted via status checker this morning! I interviewed yesterday by Skype, so I guess it's a pretty fast turn-around. 3.73/172/non-URM/good softs. Can't wait to go to ASW!!!

Seems like they request one from every potential admit. I don't think saying no would be received well :/

Yeah if they ask you to interview it means you have a shot. It's a necessary but not sufficient condition for admission I believe (like the JS1 with H)

Email. Haven't gotten one myself (and probably won't) but I've asked the same question myself

I got mine via email, and I don't recall the status checker changing to reflect this, but maybe someone else can correct me if I'm wrong. From what I've heard, and from my own experience, an interview is certainly a necessary condition to admission, but it often feels like it approximates to a sufficient one too. There have been rare cases (I think) where people have gotten rejected/waitlisted after interviewing, but it seems like you would need to bomb it big time to not get in after you are invited to interview. In other words, it's yours to lose.

I went complete 10/23 and didn't get an interview request until December, don't worry!

I'm an extreme splitter some places but probably an auto-ding for UVA (LSAT=168) so my chances of getting an interview are minimal at best, but I'm not going to totally give up hope until I've been complete for over two months. Went complete like 12/4 or something, UR1 the next day, UR2 since 12/13.

I haven't even been UR2 yet. (UR 12/11) I'm pretty salty about it, but at least I haven't been dinged. I kind of expected it anyway.

I went "complete" the last week of October and received an interview request two days ago. I interviewed today. It went really well.

Checking in! I know I’m a little late to the game. Anyone else apply ED? I applied ED over the holidays and I’m still waiting to hear, but I was wondering what others experiences were with the ED process?

I've been UR1 since 11/30 with no movement since. The ghosting is agonizing.
