Title: UVA...Did you just ding me???????
Post by: WP03 on February 10, 2007, 06:28:22 AM
Does anyone know if UVA is dinging people right now?  I'm a FLEP guy and I called UVA and talked to the Director of Admissions last week.  I told him that I needed to have a decision in the next two months b/c of the Army's deadline.  I received a status change email last night and checked the Admit Web and got this:

As of 2/9/07, a decision has been made on your application for admission to the University of Virginia School of Law. To protect the confidentiality of your decision, we will not release decision information over the phone. If you have not received your decision within 10 days of this date, please feel free to call the Admissions Office so that we can verify your contact information. If this does not represent a final decision on your application for admission, you will be notified when further decisions are posted on the status monitor later this season.

UVA was the highest rank school to which I applied...thanks in advance!

That message doesn't indicate a ding or acceptance (or any other decision).  It just means they've made a decision on your application.  Everyone gets that message when their status changes.

UVa has been sending out decisions in batches (ie all admits or all rejects). From your numbers, I would assume admits...or maybe waitlist if they've started doing that, but that's just my opinion.

I'm thinking admits...I've been complete for nearly 2 months and have target #s (or so I thought...) and still haven't hear a peep from them!!!  It's especially frustrating because that's been the school I've been dying to hear from the entire cycle!  I'm thinking that with a 2 week turnaround you're an auto-admit...

If the response is that quick, I'd imagine ure admitted...depends on ur numbers though, which I have no idea of.

I've been complete since December....I wonder if the call pushed my decision sooner than they normally would have decided...so maybe I'm not part of the mass admit pile.. :(

I'm so jealous you all went to decision. I've been waiting ssssooooo long. And by the way, I don't think you just got dinged.

They've been mailing decisions once their status changed. Good luck.

Most applicants get a mailed decision.  Some have been called, but it seems as if by far most acceptances are through mail.

That is the same message I got on the checker when I went to decision, which turned out to be an admit. However, I would assume that they probably put up the same message no matter the nature of the actual decision. Not to worry though, I'm sure you are all admits anyway

Gemeg, you should post more often.  I like your 'tar.  Nice hair.

Almost certain it is an admit based on numbers+ in-state.

I sure hope so... I just figured that the GPA would certainly preclude me from such a quick turnaround. Won't know until tonight or tomorrow, I guess.

UVA you rock!  I'm starting my campaign to have the Army pay for me to go!  This is one of the five happiest days of my life.

I just looked it up in Google Earth....they are about 250 meters apart are so.  As I was looking through the brochure, it also seems that UVA offers some courses through the JAG school there (under the International Law and National Security Law Courses). 

I was going to tell you that i went complete the same day you did and got the call today...but I guess you already heard good news! Congrats!!

Well, thanks anyway!  Congrats to you as well!  The call was definitely unexpected ...

Did anyone happen to get the status change e-mail from UVA on Monday evening notifying you that a decision has been made?  I got one, but havent heard anyone else talk about getting one.  Kind of freaking out.

Congrats to all that have gotten in!
