Announcing the Pre-Comm Blog

Those of you who are interested in studying business might consider the McIntire School of Commerce. This is a two-year program whether your internal or external (like yourselves). So, if you are looking to come to UVA for your 2nd year of college, you would have to apply to the College of Arts and Sciences as a Pre-Comm student, finish your pre-requisites in your 2nd year here and then apply to the Commerce school. If you are looking to come to UVA for your 3rd year of college, you would apply directly to the Commerce School. The admissions process is competitive, but the administrators at the Commerce school are very approachable and do a great job of informing prospective students about the admissions process. That's why it comes as no surprise that they have launched their own blog. You can find them here and I've listed the blog on one of the menus to the right.
