    .Yday visited UVA and asked several questions to admissions

    Even Wise has UVA name, they are separate and is similar to community colleges, which have guarantee admission to UVA.

    1) Academic Advisers for Wise are different than UVA main campus. So we can have access to UVA main campus only after coming to main campus. Class sizes in Wise expected to be smaller.

    2) Transcript of Wise would be different from UVA Main. They except Wise rigor to be same as Main campus but offering of classes could vary. You can check credits those can be transferred. Was told grad schools do not see this as negative.

    3) Earlier Wise was 2 year program and now they reduced to 1 year. This change was done due to VA state initiative to provide more opportunity for VA residents.

    4) Wise is primarily for regional students in that south west of VA and class profile would reflect that.

    5) So far this year 30-40 students accepted Wise option.

    6) Going to a different college for a year and transfer to UVA could be one option but there is no guarantee. About 700 students transfer each year.

    FYI

    Tuesday, April 30, 2019

    A quick #UVA23 Update

    With the May 1st deposit deadline looming, I thought I'd give you all a heads up about how the class of 2023 is coming together. Admitted students have until 11:59 PM on May 1st to submit their deposits, but we already know that we will be over the enrollment target for the first year class.

    There is a factor that has to be considered before we make any decision about releasing the waiting list. That factor is called "melt." Melt is what happens when students who paid an admission deposit decide that they aren't coming. You can see melt happen as other schools go to their waiting list. Someone who deposited at UVA might get off the waiting list at another school and decide to withdraw from here to accept that other offer. Just as students are waiting for news of waiting list movement, admission officers are. We know that if peer schools start making offers to their waiting list students, we might see some people withdraw from our class.

    The other factors that come into play at UVA are residency and the five academic entry points for first years. We could be over-enrolled in one school/college, but under the target for another. We'll know more about that after all the deposits are in.

    The tl;dr is that there probably won't be much waiting list movement at UVA this year. I'll have another update after May 1st.

    i have a feeling in my own personal situation it really won't make much of a difference one way or the other. i'm hoping the roi with a degree from blacksburg will be worth the cost!

    haven't heard anything. have you guys read the latest blogpost on the uva admission blogpost?
    they said 'The tl;dr is that there probably won't be much waiting list movement at UVA this year. I'll have another update after May 1st.' does this mean that number of people getting off the waitlist are really low? :/
    i really just want an update lol

    Arts & Sciences and Engineering students got an email this afternoon telling them we are releasing those waiting lists. I’ve also shared this via instastories.

    @Dean J if I did not get the email, It means I am not off the waitlist, or the email was sent to all waitlisted students?

    Mass emails sometimes get tagged as spam, so perhaps that is what's happening.

    So you all, reddit, and the people who follow me on instagram know the news a little ahead of everyone else.

    I'm not sure what I'm being asked here...the waiting lists for the College and Engineering are closed. Emails went out, the portal has updated, and posts went up on twitter, instagram, facebook, reddit, and here.

    We are still monitoring the Architecture, Nursing, and Kinesiology groups and I'll post updates on my social media accounts when I have them.

    Perhaps I can clarify the question being asked. The phrases "waiting lists have been released" or "waiting lists are closed" aren't clear to a layperson as they are for admissions staff. I presume they are asking if they are still under consideration or if they've been rejected.

    Arts & Sciences and Engineering are FULL. That's why the waitlist has been "released" / "closed." There are no spots available, so the students on waitlists for those programs have been told that UVA is no longer a possible option for them. UVA will not be taking any off those lists.

    Architecture, Nursing and Kinesiology are still OPEN. There might be some availability in each of those programs, so for those waiting, there is still a chance. Whether that is for in-state or OOS students, we have not been told yet and there is no word on how many spots might be open.

    And so, students and their families try to patiently and hopefully wait, with fingers crossed. Good luck to all!

    my son got an email early last week informing him that he was not admitted. at least i can tell him it wasn't really a matter of his credentials, but rather the college of engineering just had no open spots. he is off to blacksburg, which of course we all know (especially those of us with hokie bias) carries much more engineering cred than any other college in the state of virginia. just a note, it does seem that academically, the gen z crew has amped up its game. in general, vt has accepted the most freshmen students in its history this coming fall, and as such, is allowing freshmen to acquire non-university housing off-campus. and what does this all mean? $$$CHA-CHING$$$ -- more students = more money in their pockets!

    My neighbors boyfriend who was called had applied to the school of architecture but ended up turning it down.

    My daughter says that the portal seems to have gone blank today. Wondering if they are about to announce the waitlist is closed.....


    It just says:
