If you can explain UVA's review process to me, you deserve to get into any law school of your choice. I'm convinced they grab a handful of apps from the middle of a very large pile and say "these are the ones we will review today."
They review applications as they come, and have a HYS-esque process of choosing admits. They admit in-state applicants with decent to auto-admit numbers, and people whose PSs, DSs or Why UVAs that they find interesting. The rest are thrown into a "reject/WL-but-tell-them-later" pile, "Probably-but-lets-keep-looking" pile, and "not-sure-yet-pile". Unfortunately for many, they haven't gotten to these piles yet, or are just now beginning to.
I'd be willing to be most of the people who have already been admitted RD are either in-state or had something on their application that "stuck out" to the admissions committee, whatever that is.
