    Britt...As you've been told, OOS for UVA is anyone's guess. There were students last year who were waitlisted with a 2390/4.0 UW! That being said, my D got in with somewhat similar stats to you: she had 11 APs/1 DC, a 4.0 UW, 2250 SAT I, and 790/770 SAT IIs (a bit higher test scores); however, what she did NOT have was your legacy status that UVA most definitely considers. Consequently, I would say your chances are VERY, VERY good. Best of luck to you! She's VERY happy with her decision.

    Wow you are right our stats are similar! I think you have a great chance, especially with all those subject tests. Have you spoken with the UVA alumni association?

    I THINK, that if you're a legacy, you get put into the instate pile, but still would have to pay OOS tuition if you were to attend.

    That is an I THINK, not 100% sure.

    considering you're legacy (like others have said) i'd say you have a fairly good chance at getting in. however, from my school at least UVA is about as hard as Cornell in terms of acceptances. its really quite odd when you're OOS..
