UVA's schizophrenic admission process has turned me off for the school. We're all standing in line, and Faulk keeps letting URMs and residents cut ahead. Pardon my French, but that's bull-ish.

According to LSN data, a large proportion of those who have already been dmitted are VA residents.

It's been noted that some adcoms do occasionally peruse these pages, so you might want to watch yourself a bit. Just a friendly piece of advice!

I think I read somewhere that 40% of the matriculating class is in-state?

I started to have some mini-panic tonight about not getting into UVA. It's become a top choice...but all of those admitted this far with my numbers (or lower) have been in-state or ED.

Then I remember that it is just November. And then I look at last cycle's LSN profiles to see some applicants (non-URMs like me) with worse numbers getting scholarship $ thrown at them...even if they applied in January.

But this does little to assuage my anxiety. Holy shit I want into UVA. Great weather, great town, great COL, and incredible reputation.

Fingers crossed for all in this thread!

What is frightening about last year's LSN for UVA is the size of the WL spread. Though I'm sure there is some rhyme and reason to it on their end...it seems that very few people could have felt assured that they were getting in (outside of ED and perhaps in-staters with certain #'s).

I dont think a waitlist is a soft reject. All of the YPs can get off the waitlist if they write LOCI and I think they pull people from their waitlist

I would feel much less confident on a UVA WL than most other schools.

This is probably true. I guess it depends on why you were WL'ed. Still wouldn't feel comfortable.

That is true because they over enrolled. But I still think some YPs got off the waitlist who wanted off, I might be wrong though

Sorry if it's already been adressed, but traditionally, how's about UVA's thanksgiving policy? I mean, will the adcomms issue a fairly large batch of acceptances just before the vacation?

Maybe, but I doubt it. I was in September and haven't heard anything from UM or UVA. Did hear from Duke though.

Edit: With your LSAT, you may be getting some YP.

Nope, you're not the only one. I have heard nada from them and my numbers are above 75th on all. :(

Did either of you write PS's about your leadership experience in the KKK or how Mein Kampf inspired you to become a lawyer?

Actually, it was about the Komintern, and the interrogators in Darkness at Noon inspired me to become a lawyer. ;)
