I hope it does. I'm sick of incessantly checking my blackberry for the blessed email.

I wonder if that will hold true given the new ED deadline. I hope so!


It might not hold true given "Snowmageddon."


LOL-I've been calling it "Snowpocalypse."

I really hope that I get a decision from them soon, since my UR date still reads 10/29, but am willing to wait another week for an acceptance. (Just kidding, obviously. I'm reaching everywhere this cycle, and it is paying off, but I have always had my heart set on UVA.)

-1. Her profile says she got into NYU and Chicago. You'd have to really, REALLY love UVA to take it at sticker over NYU/Chicago.

Whoops, I'll retract the +1. I leapt before I looked.

She did say she has her heart set on it. If it's the school she wants to go to...

Question for people who check their online status:

My application has been listed as "Complete, pending review/decision" since early November. I have stats that should place me well within the acceptance range (3.6X GPA, mid-170s LSAT, HYP UG) but haven't heard a peep from this school. Is this a sign of YP? Does the application status ever switch to "Under Review"?

I'd totally take UVA over a higher school if they offered a good chunk of money... but now it seems that the challenge is getting admitted.

Meh. I consider NYU/Chicago/UVA a wash.

Unfortunately, UVA doesn't really update their status checker. Most people sit at "Complete, pending review/decision" until they get a phone call or a waitlist/reject email. Some have had their dates update, some have not. If you're in the mid-170s, it could be YP...but who knows, there have been quite a few acceptances in that range this cycle. Did you write a "Why UVA?"

It could be YP, although a 3.6x GPA isn't quite YP territory, I wouldn't think. Until a week or so ago, my status had stood at Complete, Pending Review/Decision since mid-November.

Thanks for clarifying things. No, I did not write a "Why UVA" essay, and I am also not a Virginia resident. These could be the two factors keeping me from getting in despite my decent numbers. Hopefully some news will arrive in the next week or so.

Your numbers put you solidly in YP territory at UVA, not admit. Less than 20% of similar LSN applicants were accepted last year (3.5-3.7, 172-176):

Given that you're also a non-resident, you should really have taken an hour or two to write a Why UVA essay.

Does anyone know if admissions is open today? I heard the DC area got over two feet of snow.
