<p>Everything looks fine, but your SAT score isn't up to par. Try to raise your W score about 60 points, and you'll have a decent chance.</p>

<p>I don't think UVa looks at the writing score. Dean J has posted something about this.</p>

<p>I got in with something along those stats, yours are actually a little better. Just focus on your essays, which you can actually start working on now.</p>

<p>Also I think your brother may have a little impact, my friend got in this year and his sister had just graduated as well. Of course he may have gotten in regardless but it does show that you may be more likely to attend, especially when you have above average stats</p>

<p>So far, I think you're on par with the average in-state acceptance - perhaps even a bit higher - which is what you need to be a competitive OOS app. With OOS applicants, you never really know what'll happen (someone was complaining earlier this year that they had an almost perfect SAT and got waitlisted -- though that's quite the outlier), but it looks like you're a match for UVA.</p>

<p>Having a sibling who went to U-Va does not make a difference. And yes U-Va does look at the writing score. Applicants were required to take the SAT writing test even before it became part of the SAT I.</p>

<p>@Novaparent............as you'll see when you read this link, UVa puts little or no weight on the Writing portion of the SAT I.</p>

<p>Notes</a> from Peabody: The UVA Application Process: Let's talk about the SAT Writing section essay</p>

<p>@robertr......The impression I got from Dean J was that they don't put any weight on the SAT essay, but that they do consider the overall writing section score.</p>

<p>@Novaparent.....my apologies....I just read the blog again and it is just the essay component of the Writing section that UVa discounts.</p>
