In UVA yesterday. Got the email asking me to call, and then I called them back.

The weird part was that before they officially accepted me they said they were calling to see if I  was "still interested in being considered for admissions." So I reply "Yes, of course." Then they said, "Well great, let me be the first to congratulate you with the great news that you have been accepted..." 

Thought it was a strange phone conversation that adds to my suspicion that they are holding out on folks at or above the 75% percentile for the sole purpose of yield protection. So if anyone is/was in my boat. That seems to be what's happening. If you really are interested in UVA, are above the median/75%, and want to hurry things along, maybe updating them or sending a LOCI or something my speed them up. Just a thought. Or wait it out and you might get the same awkward conversation I did.

CLS! Strange, though, 'cuz I got notified via e-mail titled "Admissions Blog". Still extremely happy though!
