This is the toughest part of our year. We wish we could admit all of the wonderful applicants who have applied. The reality is that we only have so much space, making admission highly selective. We want you to be proud of your accomplishments and proud of the fact that you stuck your neck out and applied to transfer from your world to a whole other world. This decision is not a declaration of your personal worth or who you are. It might sound cliche, but one must keep these events in proper perspective.
We do not have an appeals process, but depending upon the length of time you’ve been in college and your desired UVa school, you may be able to apply again in the future. You’ll need to complete a new application. Spring 2016 applications(available beginning on August 1) will be due October 1. If you post here, please be considerate of each other’s feelings, emotions, reactions and the like. We will delete any inappropriate commentary. We wish you the best of luck.
