Dude if you want UVA so bad, email them and tell them you are still very interested in attending and was wondering when you could expect a decision.
I'm sorry, jaws, but I feel like you're becoming a little hostile with regards to people who are going through a rough wait in the cycle. Looking at your LSN, I guess you got a turnaround of 1 day on your only app, so you never really had to go through a period of really stressful waiting. I assure you, it is not fun, and I wish you wouldn't be so casually dismissive.
Your right and I completely understand where you are coming from.
But, at the same time there is absolutely nothing wrong with taking a proactive stance in regards to your cycle. This thread is full of people who wanted UVA, sat passively on their hands for 3 months waiting for a decision, then were shocked when they got WL'd.
How is a school supposed to distinguish you from the crowd that just applied because of the fee waiver, from people who actual want to attend, if you don't express yourself in some way?
