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!

Sending Application Updates to UVA

I'm going to make this short and simple because there is a lot of reading to do. Many students want to update their files right now. This is totally fine. On our contact page, the page where people fine our email addresses, we have this statement:

Application updates are sent to 
and not to individual admission officers.

 If you send an application update to an admission officer, they forward it along to that address. To speed things up, just send the updates directly to We are reading all day and into the night and many of us stay off email so we can focus on applications. 

Nobody available to play because they are reading files!
