Some interesting facts about UVA Law School

Founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, the University of Virginia School of Law is the second-oldest continuously operating law school in the nation. UVA Law is a world-renowned training ground for distinguished lawyers and public servants, instilling in them a commitment to leadership, integrity, and community service.

Virginia is justly famous for its collegial environment that bonds students and faculty, and student satisfaction is consistently cited as among the highest in American law schools. UVA Law has been recognized as a leader in providing a high quality of life as well as some of the best professors, classroom experiences, and career prospects for its students. LLM students not only get to know other LLM students from all over the world, but also the JD students and our outstanding faculty as well. The same faculty—leading scholars and acknowledged experts in all aspects of public and private law—teach LLM and JD students. At Virginia, law students share their experiences in a cooperative spirit, both in and out of the classroom, and build a network that lasts well beyond their time here.

For foreign law graduates, the LLM program is designed to provide both a broad introduction to American law and legal theory, and advanced training in specialized areas of law that are relevant to the individual student’s planned career in private practice, academics, or public service. Because Virginia offers more than 270 courses each year in an array of topics, students in the program also have wide latitude to plan courses of study that are tailored to their individual interests and career objectives.

@Prxttylawprincess You're being considered at UVA with a 153?
I don't mean it as an offense I'm just curious
With a 162 and 3.0 I'm really curious what school I should be shooting for an ED on
Maybe Boston College?
they haven't sent out an R wave yet unless you are ED
so everyone is tech being considered
Well PrxttyLaw got deferred ED and not flat out denied so yeah they must have had something
I was being considered for ED and they pushed me to RD
I suppose UVA is slowing down?
I have a 154/3.86 and UVA denied me for ED, but I'm also not URM.
Sorry, just straight rejected.
who tf got into uva with a 3.19 and 157 what
but my 3.7 got deferred :(
UVA is big on the whole-person concept. People with stats lower than mine get in each year. My biggest piece of advice is to focus on perfecting your personal statement: remember the audience you are speaking to and what they are looking for in an applicant. In my interview, I was told my application was unique because they could “see themselves in my application.”
thanks for the advice @calesepp and congrats on the A!
also update for those interested: as of Halloween last week, UVA admitted around 85ish applicants. This is from the Admissible podcast
@calesepp: congrats on the A, might see you next year
is getting a UVA interview almost a guaranteed A?
How long after your interview did you hear back?
next day i think
@TediousDearBee: did you interview today, who was it with?
@TediousDearBee When did you interview? Did you get a phone call to say you were accepted?
went from UR1 to UR2 today and my address is long??? anyone know if it's always been long lol
but no II yet so it seems like a bad sign
I don't think you actually went UR2, as there are a lot of reports of date changes within a day or two of complete
ah okay thank you!
Hmmm. Just for clarification, I went complete and UR on 11/13. My date changed on 11/15, and I stayed UR. Would this be considered UR2? Or is it an example of what you said above?
I would consider that still UR1 or UR1.5 if you will.
but it is all speculation based off anecdotes so I could be wrong
