Haha. Bill_h_pike's statement is so true. I don't think the UVA messageboard is reflective of the applicant pool. Just go and look at the thread where people talk about the colleges they applied to. The average student doesn't apply to four ivy leagues and five other top 20 schools. The people in these forums freaking out are probably the best of the best and have no reason to be this crazy over college. I know UVA is a great school, with great students who have great statistics, but, I believe that the students reflected in this forum are definitely on the higher end of applicants.
