Hi guys! I'm sure everyone who applied early action is just as nervous and excited as I am for January 31st! I've wanted to go to UVa for as long as I can remember and the fact that I'll know next month is CRAZY! Let's keep each other company while we're waiting! We can do a cute little icebreaker. I'll start :)

Name: Jessica.
Hometown, Baltimore, Maryland.
Intended Major: Political Science/Government and Law.
Fun Fact: I went to an arts high school for Creative Writing!

I'm really excited to meet everyone! Wahoowa!

    Hello! Thanks for starting this! I knew I couldn't be the only UVA early applicant out there. :P

    I'd rather not give my name but I live in Northern Virginia now and I'm from Ohio originally and thinking about studying Econ or Public Policy. I've been down to Charlottesville to visit UVa four times now in the last half-year or so and I love it more and more every time I visit, so I'm definitely excited for January 31 to come around! I wish they would get decisions out earlier, but taking their time is understandable when you've got 11,000 applicants or so.

    Anyway good luck Jessica and hopefully some other people will start posting on here soon!

    Hello :)

    I'm from NOVA. I plan to minor in Spanish-- not entirely sure what to major in but I'm thinking about becoming a Genetic Counselor or criminal profiler (gotta love Criminal Minds!)

    Fun fact/Quirk: I'm happiest when it's raining-- I think rain is beautiful.

    Happy holidays and good luck to everyone applying EA!

    Hi guys! Thanks for responding! You both sound lovely and I hope we're all lucky enough to go to school together in the fall! :) You guys are SO lucky you're in state! The out of state acceptance rate scares me a lot. So why do you guys love UVa so much?! For me, it's definitely the tradition and the academic awesomeness haha.

    Yayayyyyy we finally have one of these going for UVA! I'm from Georgia and also have wanted to be a Wahoo since I was little. And SarahCarolina would pick rain over sun anyday. People think I'm so strange.
    Just the fact that I am quite possibly talking to my future classmates right niw amazes me! Dear Lord can January 31 come any sooner?

    Whoops I meant to say *I would pick rain over sun any day.
  • sarahcarolina54sarahcarolina54 Posts: 93Registered User Junior Member
    haha falcons I'm glad I'm not the only one. Have you guys heard anything about the possible acceptance rate for EA? Also, what about the breakdown of IS/OOS applicants?
  • jessleighjessleigh Posts: 15Registered User New Member
    In state students make up 2/3rds of the student body, I heard that from Dean J. I really hope we all get in and we're all classmates!

    By the way, if you guys don't follow @uvadeanj on twitter already, do it! It's updated almost every day and the Dean talks about UVa applicants and information for all of us hopefuls!

    January 31st needs to be here now.

    Good luck everyone! Hope to see some of you around Grounds next year. And if you have any questions, don't hesitate sending me a quick PM. I'm a member of the class of 2015 (and from the Baltimore area, Jessica!)

    I can't wait for my decision either! UVA seems like a great place!
  • falcons84falcons84 Posts: 20Registered User New Member
    Sup Eagle not to be creepy but I saw that you got into Georgia Honors when I was on the thread. Me toooo! Congrats!

    Jessleigh--To answer your question about why I love UVa, I'd have to write a lot more than I'm going to here because there's just so much to love about it. But in general, it just has everything a college should: academics, social life, sports, traditions, an awesome college town, a beautiful campus... the list goes on and on.

    good or bad to have used a "fictional" word for my favorite word essay? lol
  • maddykmaddyk Posts: 67Registered User Junior Member
    Hey guys :) I kinda wish UVA released decisions when all the other EAs come out because I just got deferred from Michigan and I hate playing the waiting game haha. UVA is a stretch for me but it's one of my top choices (I live in NC).
    Taking part in their global health program with a South Asian studies and/or math minor would be my dream come true :) Let's hope we all get in!
  • sarahcarolina54sarahcarolina54 Posts: 93Registered User Junior Member
    Maddyk-- I'm sorry about your deferral-- I heard Michigan EA was really competitive this year. I'm dying waiting too :(
    WahooNation-- just curious, what fictional word did you use? (Not looking to copy-- I just think it could be a really interesting essay.)

    Does anyone know how we'll get our decisions on the 31st? Will we log into SIS?
