    Hi! I'm also applying to UVA for this spring!

    HS GPA: kinda trash
    ACT: 31 cumulative
    Some work experience, some extracurriculars and volunteer work, but honestly nothing that special.

    College: OOS small private university in New England
    GPA: 3.86 but I expect to raise that by the end of the summer, hopefully back to a 3.90 by the time I apply (37 credits completed so far, and will have 58 by the end of the fall term)
    Dean's List for Fall 2019 and Spring 2020
    Literally no extracurriculars LOL

    Not at all expecting to get in, but I figured I'd shoot my shot and see what happens

    Hey! It's great to see other people on CC who want to be in the class of '23 at UVA. We're early so hopefully participation in this thread will pickup as fall approaches. You seem like a great candidate, good luck!

    @VALOVER111 Admit rates for a fall transfer tend to be 35-40% according to UVA, but there are just fewer spots for the spring. The application should be available soon.

    From the transfer blog:
    There is no waitlist in our spring admission process. Please do keep in mind how much more limited in space the spring pool is - it is not even a tenth of the size of the fall semester enrollment. The acceptance rate for this spring pool was just under 16%
