Does the status date change daily?

mine says today's date (18th) but now I can't remember if this is a daily thing or not. I haven't been checking UVA very often.


It is not daily, but they have changed sporatically.

I'm going to fuel the paranoia: my date never changed since going complete in Sept., but just changed to today's date. Maybe one last batch of decisions before Thanksgiving?

PS UVA...it would be nice to take some good news back for Thansgiving.

Seemingly all over the place.

It seems UVA uses a "trickling" process, unlike the steady stream of places like Georgetown or, to a lesser extent, Duke.

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."

My bet:

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.

My status has stayed "File Complete, Pending Review/Decision" since 9/28.

:) So don't whine if yours has been like that since the beginning of November.

All of this sounds dead on. Everyone who gets in this early gets the phone call treatment and to my knowledge that does not keep up throughout the cycle. I would say this suggests that the earliest admits are ones that "stick out".

I like your picture, by the way. Have you seen the sneezing baby panda on youtube? It makes me happy.

Is it a big disadvantage if you're not from VA? I was hoping that people from out-of-state with strong numbers would still get a decent look.
