Any word on when non-massive scholarships are awarded? A decent package from UVA might seal the deal for me.

Mid-March is when all non-massive $$ will be doled out according to Cordel Faulk.

Per LSN, it looks like UVA is trying to bump their LSAT median to a 171. Hopefully, since I'm helping them do that, I get some decent cash. Outside of the snowball's chance Chicago lets me in, it looks like I'll be in Charlottesville in the fall.

Likewise except substitute Columbia for Chicago. I have strong ties to UVA and in-state tuition ($15,000 less), plus I want to practice in the D.C. area. I'm really hoping for some sort of scholarship to seal the deal for me. It's tough to turn down NYU though, and it would be even tougher to turn down Columbia if that were to happen.

So I shot an email to Dugas telling him that I am still very interested in UVA and asking if I should submit a formal LOCI. Hopefully it's not needed and the email was enough to let him know... There are at least a few people who did something like that and got accepted the next day... hopefully I am next!

I did the same thing last night, and since I already wrote a "Why UVA" he said my e-mail would be noted in my file, and I didn't need to do anything else. Crossing my fingers for SOME decision coming soon..

My Status Date changed to today's date, but Status still shows Pending Review/Decision. Does this mean anything? Thanks in advance for people who had this also.

Mine updated from 11/2 to 1/4 earlier this month. I take mine as a hold (but I hope yours is better news).

If it's an E-mail asking you to call, it's probably much better news than that.

I'm not holding my breath for that. He didn't pick up as the e-mail was sent more than a few hours ago. I just left a message apologizing if I missed anything on my application.

Meh, I fixed the spam problem but still not expecting much. Virginia is two hours ahead of Texas I think so they're probably out of the office anyway.

Uh, no it's not. Even if it were, that would only make it 4:23 there.

Cheer up. Your wait has been shorter than most. This thread is overflowing with applicants with October and November "Pending Review/Decision" dates. With the exception of a small handful of people who were accepted this month, all RD applicants are still waiting for the first significant wave of RD acceptances.

vanwinkle and YCrevolution were absolutely right! I was accepted ED when I called Mr. Faulk today! I simply can't believe it. I'll be in Virginia this fall!
