Let's Talk About #UVA19 Decisions: The Deny

Denied students can use this entry to talk.

I know it's hard to know that UVa is not going to be an option when you make your final decision. I hope you all can look at your other schools and get excited about the opportunities in front of you. 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. Give yourself time to explore you options.

Remember that this decision is probably about our numbers. You didn't necessarily do anything "wrong" (a common question). Please be polite and respectful of others when posting.
