Waiting list update

It looks like we are very close to our targets for the Class of 2015.  We will be making a small number of waiting list offers.  I don't have an exact number for you right now, but my sense is that the total number of offers will be lower than in previous years and the offers will most likely be to students on the waiting lists for the College of Arts & Sciences, Architecture, and perhaps Nursing.  I do not anticipate there being any offers made to engineers.

We generally make offers by phone and that's followed by a status update in SIS.  The responses we get are varied, but if you need a little time to think about the offer, that's okay.  Usually, we get a big response on the phone, which is fun for us.

As I wrote before, the numbers are still settling (there were a few cases of people who didn't have any internet access for various reasons).  As always, when I have more information (hard numbers), I will share them here.


If you have decided that you are no longer interested in UVa, you can remove yourself from the waiting list by going back to your decision letter and hitting the "decline" button.
