UVA vs. Miami

Feb 20 10:11pm Hoo Stories: A UVa Student Blog
            One of my favorite things about UVA is basketball season. I had never been much of a basketball fan in all honesty, but college has completely changed that because basketball season brings UVA together. At times UVA can feel really big; there are over 16,000 undergrad students all involved in very different activities and classes. Yet basketball somehow makes that gap feel smaller.             You have to request for a ticket to the games which is then based on a lottery system. The more ‘sabre points’ you have, earned by going to more sporting events, the more likely you are to get a ticket to a basketball game. You are given a group which then indicates what time you are permitted to enter the game therefore determining where you can sit. The lower your group, t...

Mid-Year Reports Rolling In!

Feb 20 4:30pm Notes from Peabody: The UVA Application Process
We ask that counselors submit mid-year reports to us by February 15th so we can review fall grades during the regular decision process. Receipt of these reports also allows us to review the files of students who were deferred to the Regular Decision pool after applying during the Early Action phase.Around deadlines, we have thousands of documents arriving in our office via the Common App's transfer and traditional mail. It will take a few weeks to get thousands of documents filed, so you might not see the mid-year report disappear from your SIS account for a little while. When things are on your to-do list, don't panic. Sometimes, documents are en route or they are here, but haven't been checked in. If you know an item was sent to us, sit tight until I post that we are caught up on filing. We'll be in touch if we need anything from you. Remember, colleges want to review complete appl...
