One More Chance...

I feel as though I post this graphic a lot on the blog.  The good news is that the vast majority of applicants saw that there were three items to submit for each application on their My Colleges page in the Common App.

About 900 students successfully submitted part of their application, but neglected to submit one part. 


This afternoon, we're going to email those students and give them a little window to get their missing part submitted. If they don't submit what's missing within the window, 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.  My sense right now is that we'll see a slight increase.  This is a good thing.  We are not on a mission to dramatically increase applications numbers at UVa.
Determining residency statistics takes longer since the Office of Virginia Status has to evaluate 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.
Feel free to post questions or discuss in the comments...
