Anyone have any idea what the median numbers are for VA residents accepted to UVA?

I don't think anyone outside the admissions office will know that. My guess: something like 3.8/169.

Probably in if you apply early or sign the binding form and send that in.

as a resident with numbers very similar to these, I got in by applying RD in early Nov.

this late, ED might be the way to go. hard to say. Early is always better for UVA.

this is from the UVA profile on this website:

Dean Trujillo insists, “There is no particular “boost” given to residents. But residents have mathematics on their side.” In fact, there are “over nine nonresident applications for every resident application.” So, out of 7,880 applications in 2008, about 7,000 were from nonresidents. The ratio of resident to nonresident admittance is 60 to 40, so “nonresidents get only 1.5 seats for every resident seat in the entering class,” which is a huge boon for resident applicants.

Still, there are no special considerations given to Virginia residents who do not meet the school’s high LSAT and GPA standards. A sizable number of highly qualified applicants live in Virginia, and Trujillo lets it be known that “the medians between the pools are not statistically distinguishable.” This has led him to “joke that getting in…is ridiculously difficult (for nonresidents) rather than just being plain hard (for residents).”

I'm Mexican. I honestly thought my personal statement and diversity statement were pretty good ( i mean but who doesnt think their own statement is good) its the first school I've heard back from so hopefully the rest will be more exciting
