I received an email last night from Virginia saying that a decision has been made on my file... how long should I plan on waiting until I get the letter?  Anyone remember?

I got a call the next day, and I think the letter 1-2 days after that.  I was surprised it was so fast.  I hope good news is coming!!

I know there is a slight chance that it could be an acceptance letter, but if it is, I would be shocked...  on the other hand, I'd be bummed out if I'm rejected.  Guess I'll have to wait and see.

Thanks for the info!

I got the status update email on Friday.  The letter came in the mail on Monday.  The acceptance came in a fairly thin envelope... as opposed to a full-blown admissions package.  Just thought I'd share that info.

Do they always email when a decision is made, yay or nay?

If so, I'm going to quit checking their admitweb on a daily basis. lol

Yeah, Stephon, I asked that question before, and I was told that an email always comes with a change on the status checker...

Wow. I am going to quit checking my account. I do not want to know that a decision has been made and then have to wait to hear it. The ding might deafen me.

$5 says Waitlist letters just went out.

I'd love to be wrong, as I'm in that midnight email boat as well. But I'm out of state, so despite having above median numbers, I know it is unlikely I will be admitted. When I applied, I did not know how very different the standards were for in and out of state applicants. I otherwise would not have applied, as UVA is not a top choice for me.

Almost half the class has to be from Virginia. People from out of state tend to have Harvard-ish numbers, offsetting lower VA resident numbers. Or so I hear. Anyone more knowledgeable, please stand up.

I'd love to lose $5 and be wrong, but not in the rejection kind of way.
