Congrats! I interview Monday so hopefully it goes well.

Any info on how soon after admittance they give out their scholarships?


Dont stress about the interview it was by far the most casual one I've done and I had a lot of laughs with my interviewer.


Thanks! I'm in via status checker today after yesterdays interview! It wasn't bad at all.


Congrats!!!!


Thank you!

Essentially, if the date changes, we are assuming it is then UR2...the significance of which is still questionable!



Thank you! :D That helps!


My under review date never changed, I just got an invitation to interview, interviewed over the phone, and was admitted shortly after that!

I interviewed on 12/20 and was told that I should expect my decision the first week of January. Radio silence since then... do you think it means a ding or WL?

From what I've heard, usually an interview means you're in. I would suggest contacting the admissions office if you don't hear back by Friday.

Has anyone received more specific information on admitted students weekend yet? Does anyone know if UVA offers a travel stipend for ASW and if so, how much it is?

Just trying to figure out my schedule/financials for the spring ha.

Checking in!

I applied 11/7 and UR1 11/9

So how did people receive an interview request??
I got an email from one of the directors saying "I’d like to set up a time to discuss your UVA Law application. We can make it a Skype call or a phone call, whichever you’d prefer. Right now, I have availability throughout the day......" IDk but it just felt weird and a little less formal than other interview requests I have received (ex: Cornell/ Georgetown)

I guess the best we can do is consider it a compliment?

That was how I got my request too! Very informal / directly from the interviewer. My interviewer also emphasized during the actual interview that it was meant to be a non-intimidating, low key and chill getting to know you type of thing. I felt like my interviewer was looking more at my personality/fit for UVA and actual desire to go rather than learning more about specific stuff from my app.

Ugh, even worse here -- I went UR1 November 2 and it's been radio silence since then. Hope we both hear something back soon!

Do you receive a formal invitation to interview or does someone from the admissions office reach out to you personally?

Anyone who got accepted early int eh cycle (September/October) hear back about financial aid? I was told most work is done on that front in February but that some people will get their notification earlier.

I've been 'under review' (I guess UR1?) since 12/4. Is that normal? Splitter here, so maybe they're sitting on it.
