T minus 5 days until 3 months of UR2.


Today was my three month anniversary of UR1 :roll:

It's been two months for me :(


I went exactly 2 months of UR1 before UR2. Do we know what UR's really mean?

Got my acceptane package in the mail yesterday without any scholarship info... Should I wait for February or email the financial aid department? If I get good money from UVA, it would be a dream school for me.

Definitely wait. Once other folks start hearing financial aid follow-ups then you could inquire, but IMO it would be pretty off-putting to contact them now.

How long did it take after your acceptance to get the package?

If you check their profile they've got a 179 (lol) and 3.9. FYI, my stuff has had no scholarship info included thus far. I'm 170/3.77 so not really expecting anything yet, but YMMV.

Yeah accurate...well GPA isn't exact but close enough that I don't think it made much difference.

It seems some folks are getting $$$ (Dillards and just regular scholarships) and some aren't. No rhyme or reason. Lots of money to come in Jan/Feb tho so don't panic.

Ok so actually my UR didn’t update at all!! I was starting to get worried that I was just a ding, but then I got an email requesting a phone interview last Thursday, I had it Friday, and then got accepted today! So basically the UR stuff can be meaningless.

Also, I had to actually go onto the status checker to see that I was admitted, I didn’t get an email!

Interviewed today and was admitted during the interview! Prior to the interview request I hadn't heard anything or had my status checker change since September. UVA definitely has a different kind of process...

Got a letter in the mail today from UVA (Was admitted 2 weeks ago) and thought it was a scholarship. Just turned out it was a letter telling me they'll start giving out scholarships in late February. Just FYI.

Has anyone been admitted after going from UR1 to UR2 without an interview? I've been in UR2 since mid-early December, submitted late November. I am at one median and above the 75th for another and am starting to get worried. I wrote a Why UVA

Yes, this is common. No need to worry.

did anyone else feel like during the interview the interviewer was extremely nice and basically hinted you were in ?
