This is obviously not the decision you were looking for when you set out on this journey. 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. Even that is an accomplishment. This decision is not a declaration of your personal worth or who you are. We trust that you have other options and hope you can find peace in that next step.
We do not have an appeals process, but depending upon the length of time you’ve been in college and your desired school here at UVA, you may be able to apply again in the future. You’ll need to complete a new application. Spring 2018 applications (available beginning on August 1) will be due October 1. Again, this might not be open to your school of interest. If you post here, please be considerate and supportive of each other’s feelings, emotions, reactions and the like. We will delete any inappropriate commentary. We wish you the best of luck wherever this decision may lead you.
