I meant absolutely no disrespect to liberal arts schools in general.  It is just frustrating that all of the kids from the Ivies get like a 3.9 GPA and I'm stuck with a 3.2.  I understand that there are some liberal arts schools and probably even some Ivies that have grade deflation as well.  But if you go to an engineering school you know that vibe...all the teachers are trying to fail everyone, every A you get, you really earn.  So frustrating to be compared with schools that grade inflate. 

I think it depends on the grade inflation issue.  I'm coming from a top engineering school that actually has grade deflation and I think the law schools will take that into account when they look at my UGPA.  I know if I had gone to a liberal arts school my GPA would have been close to a 4.0, but I started out as an engineering major and everyone at my school (even the lib arts majors, who there aren't many of) have to take lots of science, calculus, and CS.  Our average GPA is below a 3.0, so I think my 3.26 will look better than a lib arts students 3.8 (or whatever).  Any thoughts?

Yay for hope!

God damn my least I'm a girl, that must count for something. :-*

I bet UVA is going to do a mass mailing on the 17th.  They are probably just getting everyone ready and then going to send out all of the letters together so that there won't be as much speculation.  You saw what happened when Georgetown had a rolling admissions policy...people were freaking out because they hadn't heard yet...did that mean that they were surely not getting in or surely getting in.  I think UVA is a little more anal about being all around the same time frame.  But I am definitely pacing back and forth waiting for my rejection ;)

Awesome...thanks for the info.  I'm sure I probably read that somewhere, but I always forget these things.  I'm hoping maybe they will wait more than a day to reject me.  Maybe they'll see something in my app packet that will just totally jump out at them.  They'll be, this chick is so cool...we have to have her at our school even though her numbers suck...

I've heard people dress casual unless they have something to do.  (i.e. interview, mock trial, etc.)  But I don't really know that for sure, that is just what I had heard.

Does UVA give any sort of preference to in-state applicants?

That would be great, since I'm in-state...(and yes, I know my numbers suck and I'm not going to get in there one needs to point that out...I know)

My last post should say..."that I WENT to the best school I possibly could"

...see I knew I was retarded...proofreading, who needs it?

And who's going to be laughing when by some random fluke of nature one of us gets into a super reach?  Then it would be so worth it.  And if that doesn't happen (which it probably won't) then I'll know that I won't to the best school I possibly could.
