Now I feel stupid - I addressed him as Dean Trujillo in a letter of continued interest. He wrote me back a nice letter anyway, which is especially nice of him, considering that my numbers make me a marginal candidate.

When I called back to say "yes," I double checked just to make sure and it was, in fact, an offer.I'm sure it is an offer... but i'll still feel better once i get my acceptance letter confirmation email.btw, i got the call tuesday, and they received my check thursday (sent via ups), and still no email.

fair like the sun that shines in my soul when you're near, emily
Wow, Em is genius!
Just as a funny aside... I have this and a couple of other conversations monitored so I get emails when new posts are added. So, when I get emails with "UVA Waitlist" in the subject heading, I get a little mini-heart attack each time. Sigh.
When I sent the check, I sent a follow up email letting them know that I mailed the check and was excited to be attending. They responded briefly right away, and then again when my check was received. I express mailed it (next day) if this helps.
I got a call on Friday and called back on Monday with an offer to attend UVa.I took in my deposit yesterday since I live in C-ville and called Notre Dame today to let them know.
