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.

Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
Yeah, I just doubt they only sent out two interview invited for all of ED
Well neither of them are ED haha
I really wouldn’t try to predict outcomes based on dates or status updates. UVA is completely random.
Another A 😯
Praying for an II
do you just get an email if you have an II?
I think so
ohh well good luck to you :)
so far all the A's have high LSAT's
but also no ED's
Bro my LSAT is a straight 154 I am moonshotting this
I probably just donated $125 to UVA but ey, I'm trying
I PM'd
Wooooooah we’re halfway there (whoa) livin on a prayer
I have 5 more days left (i think) I applied on the 1st, and i have legit been praying so much lolll
@Prxttylawprincess: so I think your deadline is 10/03
went complete on 9/1, 21 business days after that (not including 9/1 itself), would be 10/03 bc of labor day
that's horrible lol, just more time for anxiety
I need to get distracted lol
how is everyone feeling?
bad lol
no word from ANY ED apps though, & we're starting to get into crunch time for 09/01-09/05 apps... so I'm wondering if we'll hear back this week or next
it does feel strange though, in past years they've almost always gotten back to at least a few ED folks at the halfway point, but I haven't heard a single whisper abt ED
Yeah it is weird...I heard this cycle would be slow but this is interesting lol
@EmptyGoat: im so anxious lol. I'm hopeful even though my stats arent great
@Prxttylawprincess: check your status checker - I just got the dong
I dont see anything, it still says under review
@EmptyGoat: im sorry:(

I doubt I'll get in tbh your LSAT was way better than mine
