#UVA Regular Decision Notification Update!

 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.We are ready.

Regular Decision notification will be
Thursday, March 25, 2021

This is official. Please do not call our office to confirm it. The decision will get posted on your portal after office hours so there are fewer people on the system. I do not control the exact 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 2025. I'm not in that group (it's for students only), but I'll be watching the comments here on the blog and checking in on Instagram, Twitter, and reddit to answer questions. There will be statistics post tomorrow. I will also add a blog entry for discussion of each decision type tomorrow afternoon. If you are offered a spot on the waiting list, you will have a link to FAQs in your letter on the portal. Please click through and read through those.

This is a difficult time for all of us, but I hope that having these decisions posted will take one uncertainty off the long list of them.
