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.

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.
