|"I wanted a school that would challenge me. UVA is the exact community I was looking for--an engaged student body that feels empowered to push this school forward."|
It's the time of year when Early Action applicants are putting the finishing touches on their applications. There are some common questions and concerns at this point and I thought I'd go over a few of them.
While filling out an application to UVA, you'll encounter a question asking if you believe you qualify for in-state tuition. Answering yes will lead to answering some more questions that will be used by the Office of Virginia Status to certify that you have Virginia domicile (that's the real term).
With the Early Action deadline looming, many students are feeling pressure to get some college applications submitted. Early Action isn't always the best route, though.
After a few weeks on the road during travel season, certain themes emerge in the conversations we have with students. I'm used to people fixating on their activity lists, but things are a little different this year. People seem to think that activities lists need to be carefully crafted to align with a particular major. There are two issues with that.
I got word late yesterday that the Coalition Application is now live for UVA. After 10 years of being Common App exclusive, we have added the Coalition App as a second option for applicants. As is the norm, there will be no benefit for one application or the other during our review process.
I'm on call today and got two calls in a row from parents who wanted permission to send extra items to supplement their child's applications.
