Every fall around how many students do you accept with a gpa lower than 3.5, but an otherwise very competitive application? I have a lower gpa because of medical issues and I plan on elaborating in my essays. I just wanted to know if this is a common occurence and how UVa goes about handling it. Thank you!

Quick Question!
How long does the answer need to be to this question on the application?:
How do the possible career or professional plans you indicated on the Common Application relate to your planned course of study

We don't have statistics on this, but we are generally looking for students with a A/B record. Telling about your experiences in your application will help us make a most educated decision.


As you can see, we don't have a minimum or max. Just use your best judgment. Typically, essays are 250-500 words.
