#UVA Early Action Decisions Coming this Friday for #UVA24!

If you're a regular reader of the blog, participate in my live q&a sessions on Instagram, or see me reply to questions on Twitter/reddit/etc, you've inevitably noticed that we release admission decisions early whenever possible.

Our calendar had to shift to accommodate the new Early Decision process this year. The stated time for Early Action decisions to be released is mid-February (April 1 for Regular Decision, btw). I'm so happy to share that we are finishing the Early Action ahead of schedule and will post results to student portals in a couple days.

Early Action notification will be the evening of 
Friday, January 31, 2020!

This is official. Please do not call our office to confirm it. The decisions will go up after hours so most applicants are checking from home instead of school and there are fewer people on the system after the business day is over. I do not control the time of the release. There's a technical team that has to go through several processes to get the portals updated.

If you want to chat with some other students, here's a link to a students-only Facebook group for the Class of 2024. I'm not in that group (it's for students only), but I'll be watching the comments here and checking in on Instagram, Twitter, and reddit to answer questions.
