Information for Denied Students

Thank you for considering the University of Virginia during your college search. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer admission to all of the wonderful young adults who wish to attend UVA. In a large and competitive admission review, deny decisions are often a reflection of the strength and size of the applicant pool as opposed to a specific weakness or flaw in an applicant or application.    

Below are a few preliminary data points to help provide context for the applicant pool this year:

Total Applications: 40,814
Incoming Class Size: 3,750
Virginia Offer Rate: 36%
Non-Resident Offer Rate: 19%

Dean J’s Notes from Peabody blog is great source for information and context regarding the first-year application review.

Thank you again for applying to the University of Virginia. We wish you the very best as you complete your senior year and select a college.
