Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Best way to get to UVA??
« on: March 02, 2007, 10:42:51 AM »
Okay, here's my situation, i want to go to UVA's 2nd ASW, but the logistics/costs are becoming problematic

the cheapest flight i can find from my teensey town is 300+ dollars with super-long stopovers in detroit (i'm in upstate ny) and i don't have a car.

what's the best way to get to charlottesville? is plane pretty much the only way? Is train too much of a hassle?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: American 2010

I went to a WCL reception last night in DC, it was for the Multicultural Development Committee or something (minority students basically). The president of the law school spoke as well as some other lady, and then we mingled with other admitted students and alumni. I didn't get that great of an impression but it's all good. It seems like if you want to work in DC or go into some international-related field, American is the place for you. And also, the alumni I talked to seemed to say that summer jobs aren't also a problem. They did admit, however, that to work for a prestigious/large firm GPA/law review/moot court would be quite important. People were generally very friendly though, which was cool.

hey is anyone still on this? I just decided to give the forums one more shot and it took me through to a login page. before i was getting a message like this:

HTTP Status 403 - Access to the requested resource has been denied

anyway, i entered my info and it said invalid user name and password. Anybody else able to try?

That's because you probably weren't already logged in. If you had logged in to admit web previously and then you try to enter the Forum, it gives you that message. Try signing out of admitweb, and then going to the forum page and it will give you the login page. When you're already logged in to admitweb, it tries to use that user name and password to acccess the forum.

Got the status update e-mail last night - no forum access as of yet.

I'm 3.6,175+, but the fact that they sat on my complete app for over three months has always led me to think that there's something they didn't like about it. However, I have been accepted to comparable and higher-ranked schools. For some personal reasons, UVa is still my #1 choice.

Definite admit...adds more credence to the theory that this a mixed batch. Either that or everyone is admitted if it's going to be a batch decision thingy.

For informational purposes, I'm 3.65/178 and I got the status update and no forum access.

Are you able to access the law forum on the admitted students website that everyone's talking about?

Yeah, I somehow doubt this is just a huge batch of waitlist/rejections. I have a feeling perhaps they're just sending out all of their remaining decisions now. Ipsos's numbers and other acceptances really look like he should be an accept (sorry ipso for building up the expectations), and my numbers are def reject (don't want to post but trust me).

Changed here as well. Got a feeling this is bad news with so many of us changing.

With numbers like yours, though, I'm not so sure. very strong possiblity of an acceptance...what it makes me think is maybe this isn't a batch acceptance, i.e.. it could be a mix of rejections, acceptances, WL

^ That's no different than the status check login.

I saw the other thread...and I can't access the forum either.

Umm no its not...the poster above me has the direct link to the admitted students website, from which there is a link for the much-talked-about 'forum'

Where is this "admitted students" login?  Is it different from the status checker?

Searched for "admitted students website" on this page:
