UVA App Question

edited January 2005 in University of Virginia
Hey guys, I'm not sure if this question was on the freshman application, but I had a question involving something on the transfer app. On the Transfer Supplement section of UVA's transfer app, one of the options for question 7 is "Describe your 'best' day." How is everyone approaching this one? The quotes around the word "best" are throwing me off a bit. Do you suppose that it can be interpreted as a hypothetical best day? Just curious which way you guys are taking this one, or would take it. I plan on doing it hypothetically, because I think I could have a lot more fun with it that way.

    Good idea - have fun with it; that's what they want. Having fun leads to creativity (I supposed they are sometimes one in the same) and creativity=admission.

    I am also applying to UVA as a transfer student and I am probably going to 'tackle' that question as well. I have been thinking a lot of about it lately and have a few ideas. I was possibly thinking about picking a day in my life that may seem like a "bad" day to anyone else but resulted in me learning something important, making it the "best" day of my life; however, my idea needs a lot more tweeking.

    Anyway, best of luck to you rizdiz. I hope to see you around campus next fall!

    Thanks nova, good luck to you as well. What school are you at now, and what year are you? I'm a freshman at the University of Kansas.

    No problem, riz. Currently, I am a freshman at Villanova University. just out of curiosity, which school are you applying to at UVA? I am going to Arts & Sciences, then hoping to transfer into McCentire for business in junior year.

    I'm applying as a freshman, and for the short answer question about trading bodies, I just had fun. It ended up being sort of creative...I hope they like it.

    Nova, looks like we're on the same track! I am actually a little unsure as to which school I should apply to, as it is debatable whether or not I have all the requirements completed for McIntire. I took a bunch of credit hours through dual enrollment during highschool at my local community college, and won't really know if those all transfer until I get accepted. So I think the plan is just to apply to Arts and Sciences, and worse case I will probably just apply to McIntire the next semester or something if all of my credits do indeed transfer.
