No! Tamp down positive talk of any kind. Positivity can be appropriated for any of these folks' needs, indiscriminately. We must nurture grim outlooks everywhere. I for one can't stand the waiting, and think those remaining should forget any notions of silver linings! :wink:

Yes. Yes! Abandon hope, all ye who have been WL'd.

I thought this already posted but maybe not.

Dinged via email in the past 10 minutes. No surprise with number below both medians. Good luck everyone who is still waiting.

That killed my last hope. Similar numbers, also with an MA and 9 years of work experience ... sadly awaiting the WL.



Wait, I can give some back! I didn't write any special essay, and the 175 was a re-test, 169 first time around (though with decent excuse for first lower score.) Don't give up hope yet!

Ha, what's the excuse? any 180s in here? close?

family reasons. I'll get off the UVA WL as soon as I get the actual acceptance letter from Georgetown. Still waiting to hear from other schools too.

It perplexes me why UVA takes people with 170/3.0 through ED, then WL's people with 176/3.8.

YP aside, the best justification I can come up with is that ED students pay full sticker, whereas luring in someone like Dignan would require offering a full tuition scholly or close to it. With state budgets hurting, this might just be a devious plan by UVA to fatten their bottom line with a class full of ED applicants. Curious if it will affect their medians.

IMO their medians will stay the same this year, based on ED acceptances (3.85+ or 170+).

You might have been accepted had you missed a couple more questions on those logic games.

Good point. I am going to retake in June, aim for a 171, and then submit an addendum explaining why UVA should accept my lower score.

Lucky guesses the first time - the 171 is much more indicative of your abilities and desire to attend UVA. :roll:

None of us has the right to be stunned. Tomhobbes got the WL with a 177/4.0. He has first dibs on being stunned. Of course, when UVA rejects a 180/4.0 (hey, why not?) he'll lose that distinguished honor.

I was being sarcastic. I am not stunned. Given UVA's past and current behavior, I was fully expecting to be waitlisted.

UVA Law and the UVA B-School are both self-sufficient from the state; they don't get any money from it. I believe I read that they only take 40% of in-state students because they are expressing their gratitude to the state of VA for the past help.

No, I gotcha. However, on a serious note, I'm saying that nothing is off limits for UVA after this. Nothing. Nobody can expect an acceptance.

I think Virginia state law mandates the 40% requirement, similar to Texas, Michigan, and North Carolina.

I previously sent them a LOCI (but I didn't commit to attending if admitted) and an additional LOR. After getting into Chicago and getting a JR1, I'm taking this as an example of YP.
