Can we talk about your GPA?

All season long, I've been tweeting about GPAs when I've come across interesting practices at high schools. Admission officers don't have a strong opinion about what methodology is best. We know that your high school or district develops a system of assessment that they determined to be ideal for their environment. All we ask is that they explain that system in the high school profile.

Let's Talk about #UVA22 Decisions: The Deny

Denied students can use this entry to talk.

I know this is hard to handle and some of you might not have gotten a disappointing admission decisions yet. I hope you all can look at your options and get excited about your other schools. If your immediate reaction is "I'll transfer", don't let that plan keep you from getting involved in campus life at the school you choose. I think many students come to think of their next choice as "home" and can't imagine leaving it after a little while. Give yourself time to explore your options.

Let's Talk about #UVA22 Decisions: The Waiting List

Students offered a spot on the waiting list can use this entry to talk.

This is probably the toughest decision to get from a school. At UVA, the waiting list tends to be large because there are so many different segments to the population here (VA and OOS groups for the four schools and the one program that take first-year students). At this point, we don't know where there will be openings in the class.
