During this open house will we be able to talk to an admissions officer, or is that something that we have to sign up for separately? If so, how do we do that?

I am just curious about what we need in our application in regard to transcripts. It shows on common app that we have school forms which need to be filled out by our counselors from college as well as high school but mentions nothing about official transcripts. Are they required?

Thank You!

On this site it says the mid year report is recommended, however on the admissions site the date says n/a.... so what do I need to do?

Is it possible to be considered for admission to CAS if somebody does not get into the School of Commerce? If so, where would you put that on the application?

I wrote an op-ed article that fits the "issue that is significant" to you perfectly, but my article is 500 words. I've already dumbed down the issue to one page, is it alright if I don't cut it any further (it's suppose to be half a page).

We won’t have sign-ups, but there will be deans available in the office throughout the afternoon and available on a walk-in basis.

Yes. High school and ALL college transcripts are required.

It’s not required. If you would like to send one, you can. Chances are your mid-terms are around March 1 and thus, we’ll accept this after March 1.

One page is fine.

Yes, you can take summer courses after you are admitted and before you enter UVA and the credits will transfer.

I'm considering transferring to UVA in the fall. I was wondering if the instructor evaluation is required and how much weight is put on that. All my classes i've taken are large lectures and the professor didn't get to know me personally. Can a GTA fill out an evaluation for me?

It is not required. Please see the right side of the blog. Yes, your TA can write on your behalf.
