Was it really that bad? I haven't heard that before on here, you should post it...



I'd rather not post it whole, but it wasn't really BAD. It was just so informal, and they were aware of it. Hence, this:

VIRGINIA/TRUJILLO: I hope you excuse the informality of this communication, but I thought you might appreciate speed over formality.

It's a form letter, it's not as if they custom-type it, so it would seem that a bit more of that generic ego-boosting "we like you, we really do, but..." pap should be in order :).


Oh, actually I have read that before. Someone posted it a while back I believe. Sorry for the rejection. UVA is really odd. I am still under review from the first week of Nov....

Any idea what it means when your UVA status checker updates the date of your "Pending Review/Decision"? Mine went to pending review on 2/16 or some such, and just yesterday the date changed to 3/8. Just wondering if anybody knows a timeline for decision after that kind of update, and whether or not it has any predictive value for what the decision is.

Thanks.

Just got in with some kind of money. The call is kind of a blur so I am not exactly how much. I went under review 1/something. Good luck to everyone still waiting!

Are all these waitlists being emailed out literally right now? Do these kinds of emails still get sent out after the admissions offices are closed for the day? And does surviving waitlist bloodbath days like this increase the odds a 170+ applicant might be accepted or does it increase the odds that they didn't even merit a waitlist and are just going to get dinged

Still "File Complete, Pending Review/Decision" since 11/3. Not a single word since November. Below both medians so completely expecting a ding. Very confused as to what is taking so long though...

WL'ed. Kind of disappointing but it seems like UVA's been WL'ing a shitload of really qualified applicants, so not too offended... guess I'll crank up the LOCI machine.

Edit: Complete 2/16

Are you all just receiving these emails now or had they been sent earlier today?

Similar situation, except pending R/D since 1/7.

Maybe they're taking so long because they're trying to find a way to fit us into the class? :mrgreen:

Waitlisted at 3:51 Central.

167/3.85

I feel like I really don't have a shot. I also feel like UVA is breaking up w me by saying that we're "better off as friends"

Haha. Yes, they are so excited, they are struggling to find the rights words. :D I think being below both medians means in my case the big fat No is coming. But I did pour my heart and soul into my personal statement, so maybe I'll get a WL for the effort. I am going on 21 weeks of being complete...
