Missing Mid-Year Reports Cause Delays!

For the last few weeks, our staff has been reaching out to students and schools to track down missing application credentials. We've sent a couple reminder emails to students with items on their SIS to-do lists and have been processing documents that arrive electronically and by mail as quickly as possible. Most of the missing items are mid-year reports.

We have reached the point where the review process (and perhaps the notification date) is going to be delayed. We can't finalize our decisions without mid-year grades. If the mid-year report is still on your to-do list, it would be best for your counselor to email a first semester report card to A full transcript is not necessary. Do not email individual admission officers, as this delays filing.

We want to read your application...please make sure it's complete!

By the way, it may have been quiet on the blog for the last couple weeks, but I've been having so many great conversations with students via Instagram! I've been holding live Q&A sessions a few nights each week. If you want to join in, follow me at @UVADeanJ.
