Does anybody know many out of staters get put on post interview hold?

I saw a thread on SDN one time that basically said, if you get an interview from UVA out of state then you get an acceptance. Anybody else heard this or have some insight on the out of state situation at UVA?

not true, because I interviewed there out of state and was rejected a week later.

Perhaps you could e-mail them. In my experience, it doesn't hurt to show your interest, as long as you don't make a pest of yourself.

P.S. just be very polite, sound appologetic for imposing. That usually will work best.

What about a percentage of out of staters that get accepted outright? Does anybody know how high this number is?

It's about 50% of out-of-staters who interview are accepted outright as far as I know

from those numbers posted by brettp11 of the applied interviewed accepted and enrolled...

most of the applicants of uva are out of state...
and if you get an interview out of state then your chance of getting accepted (not just outright i believe) is around 50-54%.

i think there was another thread on this a few months ago. it seems to me that most out-of-state interviewees are accepted - my husband was. what totally surprised me is how high the rate of matriculation is, considering how much of their class is out-of-state. well, it surprised me before i saw how professionally uva handles the admissions process, in comparison with other schools.

Being a UVA student and being from out of state I can add some insight. NOT all those who interview from out of state are accepted! I would say about half are. Also unlike other schools UVA doesn't have a lot of waitlist movement either because of the high matriculation rate. They only take 10-12 a year off of the waitlist, instate and out of state all together. Continue to show your interest and you never know. I was lucky last year and was accepted outright last year to my surprise. Good luck! It's a great accomplishment to be interviewed here from out of state because they only interview about 10% of out of state applicants.

OK, just here to debunk some myths. This is according to US News data from '03-'04. The acceptance rate once you get to the interview stage at UVA is around 60% for both residents and non-residents of VA. UVA's matriculation rate for IN-STATERS is relatively high, with them offering 137 acceptances and getting 86 matriculants. UVA's matriculation rate for out-of-staters, however, is low-- they offered 164 acceptances and got 52 matriculants. That means they more than tripled the number of offers for expected matriculants to fill the out-of-state class with an appropriate ratio.

Bottom line: The UVA waitlist does move, and more so than people think. If you get on it, don't be dejected. Like I said in an another thread, two of my very good friends that are in-state came off the waitlist last year for the 2003 entering class. And the out-of-state waitlist definitely moves more than the in-state one.

Good luck.
