Has anyone heard back from uva saying that they are not interested? I know that last year they sent out rejection letters around thanksgiving, but it doesn't seem like they've sent any out yet. I wish they would just send mine already.
If it helps any, I sent an update via email to the admissions office at UVA about a week ago, and lo and behold, the guy actually sent me a reply email back the very same day! Sure it was short and sweet, but hopefully it means that those of us who haven't heard a peep from Charlottesville since late summer/early fall are still in the running, so to speak. Keep your fingers crossed, guys and gals...
I called yesterday, mentioned that I'd been complete since the end of July, and asked what my status was. They said that no decision had been made. I asked if I had been reviewed yet, and they said yes, that I had been reviewed and put on pre-interview hold. Apparently they continue to review everyone on pre-interview hold. So, yeah, we're still "in the running." But I'm not holding my breath.
If it makes you feel any better I got a rejection letter sometime last week (I was the one who talked about getting a rejection in the previous uva thread)...so you're still in the running! Good luck!
Here's the way they like to do things:
They interview the stellar applicants first. If you haven't heard anything yet, that's not neccessarily bad...I am an early IS applicant, and Dr. Canterbury told me that it would be a while before I heard something because I'm not at the top of the food chain, so to speak.
Hope that helps calm the nerves.
I met with him last summer to review my application. I'm from Charlottesville and have met him a few times before. It's a long shot for me, but worth it since I'm from there.
He seemed optimistic regarding my chances...we'll see...
i guess they think that they can do things on their own sweet time because they think that in state virginians will pick uva over mcv or evms. kind of arrogant to string us all along like this.
Hey fellahs/ladies... I don't want to piss on anyone here but in the philosophy of more facts = better conclusions, I wanted to let you all know that UVA has a quick turnaround. I mean, ridiculous. They sent out the acceptance two days after my interview. I've read elsewhere that they're fairly quick about it, unlike for example VCU/MCV (whatever they are now). If it's been a couple months and you haven't heard anything then I'd guess that's not the best sign. ... sorry...
O, and as for that one woman's smarmy comment regarding letters getting lost, it's cause they send it "special". Can't remember if it was overnight or two day, but it definitely wasn't regular old first class.
Here's wishin' you good news...
congrats on the VCU acceptance! I imagine that makes waiting for UVa a little less painful.
