Last call

     Are you tired of seeing this graphic?  Apparently, about 1,000 RD applicants didn't see it. 


So here's what we're going to do: We're going to email those people today and let them know that they have to submit what's missing from their part of the application by noon on Thursday.  If they don't submit what's missing (payment, supplement, or Common App) by then, we're going to assume that they didn't mean to apply.
Once that's done, I'll know more about our total application number.  Determining residency stats takes longer since the Office of Virginia Status has to evaluation their part of the supplement (admission uses the first half of the supplement and status uses the second half).  While status does their thing, we continue to work on the Early Action process.

I can tell you that this is the direction that the total application numbers went:

That picture is NOT current.  We haven't had any snow accumulation yet this year.
When we tell you about the number of students who applied to UVa, we're talking about people who submitted all three part so of the Common App.  There is no "part 1" and "part 2" scenario here where you get counting for submitting one item of the three.  We are set up so that we only get your application from the Common App folks when you have submitted the Common App, the UVa Supplement, and the payment (or fee waiver).  Aside from covering this on the blog multiple times, it's also in the application instructions.
