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.

Tell us what's important to you
thank you
that email ruined the vibe
What did it say?
@ClairvoyantChinchilla: it said “ I am reaching out today with another waitlist update. Given the response to our second deposit deadline, we do not anticipate making any new offers in the next few weeks. I will emphasize, however, that this is a dynamic process and one that we monitor on a daily basis. In the event that we are able to accept candidates from the waitlist, we plan to move quickly.”
The rest of the email was just the form
Got the release today. Not unexpected given that I decided not to send follow up LOCIs. Hopefully they still have seats for some of you more committed WL applicants!
154 LSAT 3.3 GPA just applied, I'm coming for you Virginia
I may be stupid but I ain't impersistent
Just went UR2
do y'all think writing 2 pages double spaced in 11 point font will hurt?
it said suggested length of 2 pages w/ 12 point font, i'm not really sure how to interpret "suggested" here...
[] WhisperingWillingBoar
I would go with what they are suggesting. They wouldn't suggest it if they didn't have a preference.
When does UVA typically start with IIs?
well i already submitted it beforehand so i can't exactly change it lol. i honestly doubt it'll make or break my app, especially since it was indeed just a suggestion
@OutstandingCommonMoth: what is lls?
ohhh nevermind
@Prxttylawprincess: You got a decision, accepted or denied? WL?
@onetimesignin: their result says pending. the lsd system defaults to the latest date being the "decision" unless you manually tell it you haven't gotten a decision yet
Looks like people started getting interviews rip
Yikes, I sent my app on the 8th, UR on the 11th
I didn't send it on the first so I don't expect much until next week, but I ain't a great applicant so, hoping for a miracle
it seems like only one person got an interview as of now
Two IIs now
And neither of them went UR2 first 😭
gg, got our first LSD A of the cycle
now I am even more anxious lol
It's jover
Based on last year the 21st and 22nd were big days on acceptances/rejections aswell
Yeah, I just doubt they only sent out two interview invited for all of ED
Well neither of them are ED haha
