I am working on answering the 300+ comments we recieved over the weekend. Please bear with me as I think I will break them up in chunks throughout the course of the week.
Some of you have answered these questions through your own research, but I'll go ahead and reiterate the information.
Lost Username and Password
If you have deleted, lost or forgotten your username and password, you can email email@example.com with the subject line, “Lost Username and Password.” Please do not call the office. Our email administrator is very efficient in handling these requests.
You should all receive your letters early this week. They went out last Friday.
For those who were offered admission, you should find that the deadline to pay your deposit is May 15. As I said before, clicking Accept, but not paying does not save a spot for you. You must pay to secure your spot.
I'm told it take three days for you to become a fully matriculated student. This is why you may find it difficult to sign up for housing or orientation instantly. Please allow at least three business days after you pay your deposit.
Speaking of orientation, they have a beautiful website here: www.virginia.edu/orientation
It's a great place to get started. Here are the important dates.
All Architecture Transfers – June 25 and 26
Third Year College(of Arts and Sciences), Commerce, Education and Nursing Transfers– July 20
Second Year College(of Arts and Sciences) and Engineering Transfers – July 21

If you received an email about a deposit waiver, it was based on information taken from your FAFSA. This was not taken from your checking a box on the Common Application. That was a waiver for the application fee, not the admissions deposit. We scheduled this email to go out just a few minutes after decisions were released. If you paid before you saw this email, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Transfer of Credit
Each school is working feverishly to evaluate the credit from your transcripts. This process will continue through May and June. It should be completed by the time you come to Orientation. For your information, you can also check out the Transfer Credit Anaylzer here http://www.web.virginia.edu/analyzer/ if you want to see what would transfer.
I shall return...
