"I came to UVA because of its incredible professors and fantastic English department."
It's the time of year when Early Action applicants start guessing the date their decisions will be posted on the Student Information System (SIS). The good news is that this blog provides a glimpse into the past because there are 12 years of posts that you can explore using the menu on the right side of the page.
I'm getting a lot of questions from students questioning the mid-year report being listed on their "to do" list in our Student Information System.
Regular Decision applicants to UVA should be putting the finishing touches on their Common Applications this weekend. Here are a few of the most common issues and questions that come up around deadline time.
I remember arriving at my first graduate school class ready for the most interesting discussions of my [short] academic life. It was a class about research methods during the summer session. I had walked for my college degree just two weeks prior and I was the lone new student in the class since most of my classmates had started the program the previous fall.
I wanted to write a quick note to Regular Decision applicants and counselors in southern California who have been affected by wildfires in the area. Though we are still about three weeks away from the RD deadline, please know that we will work with you if access to the internet is a long-term issue.
Our thoughts are with our colleagues, students, and their families in the area.
Our Early Action applicants are obviously keeping a close eye on their status pages. I thought I would go over some of the most common questions that come up when viewing a SIS account as an applicant.
