Peabody is the building, Jack is the dog, and I'm Dean J (she/her, btw).

Three notes:
1. There's fifteen years of posts here, so the search box can help find an answer to common questions, but please consider the age of the posts when you find them. The college admission process changes over time!

2. The comment box doesn't show up when viewing the blog optimized for mobile. Click the "view full site" link at the bottom of the page and the site will reload with comment boxes.

3. Pick a name, real or otherwise, if posting a comment.

Welcome to the blog and thanks for reading!

Regular Decision deadline is around the corner!

The Regular Decision deadline, January 1st, is around the corner.  I thought I'd go over a few notes that might help those getting ready to hit submit.


1. There are three parts to your part of the application.  
We don't see anything until you submit all three parts via CommonApp.org.
The three parts are the Common App, the UVa Supplement, and the payment.



2. We can't fix problems you have with CommonApp.org.
Every single page on the Common App website has a "help" link.  
Hit the "help" link if you are having trouble and submit a help request.  




3.  Do not wait until 11:59 PM to submit.
If you have trouble, understand that the Common App team will have many help tickets to answer.



I'll be checking for questions in the comments every day between now and deadline, so fee free to post questions.  I'll also be on Twitter (UVaDeanJ).

 CavDog and I are rooting for you!
Good luck!
