Mine hasn't changed since I got the status checker on 10/23. But I"m a URM applicant with numbers around the 25th percentile, so I expected a long wait.

Same for me as well. Maybe since we all have high numbers (and I know that 0L and I both wrote Why UVAs), this could be a good sign?[/quote]

There are no good signs from the dark land of yield protection that is the University of Virginia School of Law.[/quote]

The LSN statistical graph suggests no yield protection; there's a 180/4.0 who has been admitted.

I'm sure it helps. That said, I'm pretty sure they YP. I can't imagine all those 175+ candidates have no softs and all those 170-172 people do in such a black-and-white manner.

Ugh. Fortunately, I don't care any more.

They wait-listed a ton, by the way.

I'm just doing wishful thinking here because I think my softs are better than average and hoping it helps :)

No. They YP like crazy.

Eh, my status checker updated to today (went complete under review last week). Does that mean I'll hear soon? How do you hear? I'm a splitter, by the way-- LSAT above 75%, GPA around 25%.

To everyone who has been admitted RD so far -- how long did it take you from your acceptance email/call to receive the admit mailing? I live in the Northeast and was accepted on 11/13 and still haven't received it... not really complaining but I'd love to look through all of that admitted student propaganda before Thanksgiving! Also wondering when I should start bothering my mailman/thinking it was lost by the joy that is USPS?

I was admitted 11/11 and got the packet 11/14.

Thanks -- How far from UVA do you live? I'm thinking a call may be in order to ask them to re-send it. I hope they don't think I'm crazy when I tell them that my mailman was sick for the week around when I was accepted so my mail has been very screwed up!

I hope not. Mine updated to 11/5 and then has stayed there. But I am above 75% on both LSAT and GPA.


Same here :(


Same for me as well. Maybe since we all have high numbers (and I know that 0L and I both wrote Why UVAs), this could be a good sign?


Add me to the high numbers + Why UVA crowd...my status hasn't changed in a month

All quiet on the Virginian front these days...damn.

More than any other school, my interest in UVA has dramatically increased since submitting my app. I think I did a good job with my "Why UVA", but if I could do it over now I wonder if it would be even better. Oh well.

Is it true that the UVA WL is more amorphous in terms of turning a WL into an Admit? Or is it like Berkeley where it's prioritized at the very beginning and there's nothing you can do to "bump" yourself up numerically on the list? I realized I know a UVA alum very well who could write an additional LOR for me...

UVA WL = soft rejection

+1

It is a very good feeling. They were the first for me too, and thus far they are the leader in the clubhouse.

Congrats! I see your stats in your profile; when did you submit and go complete? Was the date on your status checker updated ever? Thanks!


Sent 11/18, received 11/19, status checker updated to "file complete, pending decision/review" on 11/23 and hasn't changed since.

EDIT: That's a fast turnaround. I really hope they start getting to us out-of-staters soon too!

I'm sorry, that won't be possible. The University has an obligation to the good tax-paying citizens of Virginia (me, for example) to attend to its residents first. Thanks for your patience!
