Taking Stock

Hello everyone,

I will attempt to answer important questions today and tomorrow. With over 100 comments and normal work that we have to do, this will take some time.

A couple of notes: Please do not email or call the schools or Deans of schools to ask about your application. We handle application questions here in admissions. If there's something we can't answer, we'll check it out for you. If you are not contacting an admissions dean, you are not contacting the right party.

If you have been admitted, please check your SIS To-Do List to make sure all financial aid documents are submitted. It's REALLY important that you get these in ASAP.

All told, this is still a selective process. We are looking to see if you've been successful where you are and if you'll do well here at UVA, be it academically or as a contributor to the community. Of the 2300 that applied, about 400 students are on the wait list. About 31% of all applicants were admitted - that's 36% of Virginians and 24% of non-Virginians.


Stay tuned for answers to the comments posted over the weekend...

Still waiting for UVA said...

Thanks for the update transfermer,

I have a question about the wait list, are admissions rolling or will they all be sent out on a specific date like before?


Also do you still expect to take 50-100 students off the wait list? Well, I guess you won't know til the deposit deadline has passed.

Thanks!

Hi, when clicking the accept button to be waitlisted if you go back to the decision screen both the accept and reject buttons are still there. Does that matter or am I already on the wait list? Does it matter if I clicked accept more than once?

I have a question about the Curry School.
I applied to the Curry School because I plan on pursuing a B.S.ed in Communication Disorders and it says I was accepted, but everywhere I look on the UVA website it says students are typically admitted to Curry after their second year and i am just finishing my first year.
Can this be right?

thanks!

Also, is there a difference between a B.S.ed and a regular bachelors of science?

Any idea when financial aid will be released?

Can't focus for finals said...

Do we have to send in our final grades from our schools?

robbed of an education by your high admission rates of out of state kids. 92 percent of those admitted into u california schools are in state, and those are some of the best schools in the country.
