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
why is the app open until march if theyve sent out 90% of offers? that feels so disingenuous
fr i've been waiting since november and no ii but no wl/r... what do they want from me
Yeah, I submitted last month (late, I know), UR5, no II either, thinking it’s probably not coming
UR last week and WL today. I’m heartbroken.
I submitted last month binding decision and still nothing back
@AnxiousRaccoon: why do you think they sent out 90% of offers already?
I’ve been URII at UVA for a month too
but no interview so might be tough
UR3 as of today... no II yet
Yeah same here. I went UR3 today
We're in it together @ColorfulThickBullfrog
I applied sept 1st and they put me on hold and. never looked ay my app again lolll
uva top of lawhub am i cooked
ur3 i think
you're fine i just went ur7 so you never know
UR3 today as well too
went UR2 yesterday, is that a good sign?
got in 2.5 weeks ago and no aid so far :(
anyone have a guess on timelines
how do you see UR2? Mine went under review once and then again with a date change but still just says "under review"
That means you’re UR2. It doesn't say that anywhere. You just judge that you are based on the date change.
Got rejected and kind of salty about it though I know there's nothing I can do about it:(
same here
does uva admit int students?
Hey y'all I'm an undergrad right now in my Third Year and I have a couple of questions: 1. how much does Major/coursework affect you for admissions? I'm an economics major and have an extensive Math background. Secondly, what kinds of jobs do most people who are in Law take between undergrad and Law School? I'm an undergrad at UVA
I think your major is virtually irrelevant except maybe on extreme borderline scenarios. Your GPA is by far the most important factor (besides LSAT). Paralegal is probably the most common I'd assume but myself and others I know did totally unrelated jobs
do you think it is worth it to pad a low gpa (3.4) with community college summer classes. really want a t14/uva in particularr
I wish I could get off the waitlist for this school
Anyone think we'll be seeing a WL->A wave after deposit deadline 4/25?
