In order to show continued interest in UVA, you may email or mail us a letter that expresses your continued interest. You can also send a recommendation, but this is not at all required. What is most important is that you send us a transcript containing your spring grades if you are in school this semester.
Just over 500 students were placed on the wait list. 2350 students applied and around 700 were admitted. I’m not going to give individual statistics for each and every program, but know that most of these students come from the College of Arts and Sciences because that’s where we get most of our applications and where we have the most spaces. We normally build in space to take students from the wait list across all schools, but in the event that the classes become full, we won’t go to the wait list. This happened with Engineering last year. We have tried to prevent that from happening this year, but you just never know. I love it when we can offer to students on the wait list, so I really hope we can do it.
We will begin to look at the wait list in late May and as I said we usually don't "close" it until mid-late June. The reason for this is that your grades are rarely available before the middle of May and we have to see how many admitted students deposit.
