This place was helpful when I was applying and I'm bored with studying so hit me up if you have any questions about Charlottesville or UVa.

How much did first term differ from the rest of it so far?

Among 3L's? I'd say probably 90% of jobs lined up.  Among 2L's? I have no idea to be honest.

Second/third year have not been as relaxed relative to first year as I had hoped but still not stressful until the end of the semesters.

So is Big Law still there for most people who want it?  I heard that wasn't the case at Vanderbilt.

Yes.  And, even in the best of economic times, there is a pretty large difference between the opportunities available at Vanderbilt and Virginia.

I am a Virginia resident who got placed on waitlistin UVA.  I contacted admissions and the DEAN told me that I was special but they had 35 candidates for each out-of-state spot and therefore had to utilize waitlist.  I emailed him saying that I am in-state, and he has been silent since...  Any idea on future steps?

Well, that is ok, but why cant they even give me a remotely plausible reason or something.  At this point I am feeling a lot more for W&M without debt instead of UVA with 120K debt anyways, I am just not sure why at a super law school like that the admissions (whose officers went to UVA Law)cant tell a difference between in-state and out-of-state applicants.  Do they teach the difference between in and out there? Maybe they just did not learn it in the classes.... :-\
