Denied by UVa

Denied students can use this entry to talk and ask questions.

I'm so sorry this sort of entry is even needed. I hope you all can look at your options and get excited about one of your other schools. If your immediate reaction is "I'll transfer", don't let that plan keep you from getting involved in campus life at the school you choose. I think many students come to think of their next choice as "home" and can't imagine leaving it after a little while.

I hope you'll read this post and remember that this decision is probably about our numbers. You didn't do anything "wrong" (a common question). Venting is okay, though. Feel free to share your thoughts. I'll leave you until tomorrow, when I'll be back to answer questions.

CavDog wishes he knew what to say to make this easier on you.
