Missing Documents

An email went out this morning to 670 students with incomplete files.  A few weeks ago, I think I mentioned that this would be coming. If you get one of these emails, log into your SIS account and see what's missing.  Don't panic because you're not in trouble.  We have reached a  point where we've gone through all of the mail we've received and we have sorted through everything on file. We want to do our best to make your file complete. See, we're human too. Sometimes transcripts are lost in the mail. This is the time we notify you of the issue.  If something is missing, please work on this as soon as possible.  In fact, the deadline for turning in these materials is April 4th.  If you have questions about  it, you may email us.  Please be patient and we will try and get back to you within 48 hours of your inquiry.

Can I ask a favor?

Decisions for first-year applicants (not you all, but those applying from high school) will be released online tonight at 5pm EST.  The system will be overwhelmed with the clicks of potentially thousands of anxious 17 and 18 year olds.  Could you do me the favor and stay off of SIS for tonight?   I realize it’s an odd request, but I think it will really help and … well, I was getting tired of looking at the snow seeing as how it is now 83 degrees out.  Phew!  Thanks readers!

Cleaning Up

Poe Alley off the Lawn at UVA
Tomorrow, we will send out an email to applicants who did not submit all three parts of the common application (basic, supplement, and application fee).  I doubt many of the readers here will be included.   However, it would be good to keep an eye out on your inbox.

In other news, we had a nice surprise of 4-6 inches of snow today.  It's too bad the students are on spring break and not here to enjoy it.  This is a pic from this morning.

P.S. The office will be closed this Friday, 3/9/12, for a University holiday.
