Hi, so I applied for UVa regular decision - I have a weighted 4.36 GPA and I'm a full IB student. I live in Portugal and have lived in Europe all my life, but I am American and qualify for in-state at UVa. I'm in the NHS, play varsity soccer, played varsity volleyball for 2 years, am a part of the newspaper club, community and service club, have gone on 2 Habitat for Humanity trips, and am very active in MUN. However, my SAT score is an 1820 and it seems that this is pretty low in comparison to what the people below have. Do I still have a chance of getting in?
chance me please?
lease chance me:)
You should get accepted - chances around 75%.
When does UVA notify early action applicants?
Okay. So I like UVA, my dad went there and graduated in '76, and am applying regular decision. The only thing is, this website says that I have a 10% chance of getting in. My stats are alright (well, from my perspective): I have a 3.8 weighted GPA, and 2020 on SATs. I've only taken 4 APs over my high school career because I decided that I didn't want to turn into a slave, and so far have got 5s on two of those. I have an excellent college counselor who really liked my UVA supplement responses, and also my essay. For that matter, I have decent confidence that my recommendation letters are strong. So I ask, to anybody who has any idea, if a student seems like they have a decent amount of character but may not have humanly impossible stats (like these people that have 4.7s?!?!?!) do you think they would be willing to offer admission. Would they acknowledge the little guy??? Thanks.
Well are you in-state or out-of-state?... because your chances will be very different depending on which category you fall into.
Well are you in-sate out-of-state?... because your chances will be very different depending on which category you fall into.
out of state...guessing that's going to hurt me aha
Unfortunately, as an out of state applicant, your chances are slim. The University limits out of state admits to about 15% of the total.
Out of state admits typically have a gpa of 3.9 or higher, rank in the top 10% of their class and score at least 2000 on the SAT or 31 on the ACT.
hmm okay. I appreciate the honesty. My GPA might increase a touch (hopefully) after this semester but I don't think it'll make me more competitive. I am a legacy, but from what I heard that doesn't come into play unless there's a tie-breaker situation.
However, I thought that 2/3 of the incoming class was made up of in-staters, leaving a little over 33% of the class from out of state, rather than 15%.
Wolf. You are legacy. You'll be reviewed as in-state. That's a giant perk. Could help considerably. Does not mean you get in-state tuition if admitted but does put you in the IS pool for admissions. Good luck!
CHANCE ME PLEASE
Does anyone have knowledge regarding the Jefferson Scholarship? Would my daughter qualify?

says i have an 87% chance.... is that low?
Its not possible for you to have a weighted GPA of 4.22 and an unweighted GPA of 4.0
and why not? everyone takes unweighted classes which tends to lead to an odd weighted gpa (e.g. 4.22). nice logic there, buddy.

I am born in Bulgaria and my first language was Bulgarian, not English (idk if this helps).
I will be applying early and will be having an interview.
Do I have any chances at all?
I dont think they take illegal imigrants..
3.84 weighted and 33 ACT, it seems like 41% acceptance is low
3.84 weighted? like on a 5.0 Scale? That is not good
No 3.84 weighted on a 4.0 scale
I have a 29 on my ACT, am number 34 out of 604 in my class, Captain of Varsity tennis, Captain of Varsity badminton, I have numerous records and awards from both sports, Vice President of French Club, Vice President of French Honor Society, I am a peer buddy (where you a paired with a disabled student and teach them social skills), I work as a lifeguard in the summer, andI work as a cashier at Walmart yearround. I also went to Girls State where I was elected to the house of representatives and I am a state scholar.
What do you think are my chances of getting in?
Just so everyone sees how much in-state or out of state makes a difference, from switching TN to VA, my chance of acceptance went up from a little over 20% to over 80% based off a 32 ACT and 3.76 gpa alone.
well yeah... it's a state school... and with a vague cap on how many out-of-staters they can admit they're going to be more selective with their students because they're the ones who are going to round out a class that is made up mostly of virginians (and rightfully so). but i have a feeling that as state support dwindles this will chance.
I'm a sophomore in the IB Program. 4.0 unweighted/4.73 weighted gpa as of right now. Three clubs and one varsity sport make up my extracurriculars. 120 hours of community service performed. Have a 7-week paid internship this summer, will continue to play golf, and am attending the National Young Leaders' Conference in DC in less than a month. Chances?
Which clubs are you in? I think you will get into UVA.
no likely letters aren't a decision its just a way for UVa to say that they really like you, most admitted students don't even recieve one. but it is a good sign of acceptance not all the time, but a very good sign.
I feel like it would be pretty rude to send someone a 'likely' letter without admitting them, don't you think?
what do you mean by "likely letters" have been sent - is this the admissions decision?
Exciting! Thanks for letting everyone know.
Likely letters have been sent out:D
lol. o.1% chance
50% chance, not too bad but not the best
97.7% chance not bad :)
97.7% chance not bad
Yes, espescially with UV, its practically Ivy league for out of staters
ur sat scores are terrible in their standards they take that seriously. And u literally don't play one sport which Iv read that if you want to get in "public Ivies" maybe go outside and throw a baseball. and yes out of state does matter that much. Quit with the arrogance
Why do I have a 91.7% chance and William and Mary and 36.4 chance at UVA? They are very similar schools acceptance-wise
why is my percent around 25% when I have a legacy, 2010 sat, 3.89 gpa, 2 leadership positions, a job, and 4 other extra curriculars? yes, I live out of state, but does that really matter that much?
I think that this is messed up...
2010 sat is rather low for UVA standards.
My chances don't go up if I change my ethnicity from Caucasian to African-American. Lmao bs
In April an admissions counselor at UVA told us that they take 33% of their kids from out of state.
First, remember that they're required to take a lot of people in state. That skews numbers a little bit.
Also, remember that it's the highest rated public school in the nation.
Thus, if you're out of state, it's hard to get into. It shouldn't be a shock.
I have a 3.86 and a 32 ACT with a very hard High School work load and it is giving me a 33% chance?
you need a separate analysis for in-state and out-of state applicants. They are two separate pools, and are subject to very different standards
I'm going to talk to james about our predictions here. something seems a bit off, and this is probably why we have a lower % correct predictions here than most places (76% as of 4/19/09). we'll let you know :)
I've heard that if you're a legacy, it's like you're an in-state applicant, but don't quote me.
This web site doesn't seem to factor in geography, so it's useless for a place like UVa. They only admit 10% of out-of-state applicants, so you do the math.
I think the UVA chancer is either not working right or it's glitched. I'm a transfer student.
I have a 3.4 GPA, with mediocre SAT scores, some good/okay extracurriculars, some work experience, and one AP, 4. and i'm hispanic. Either its glitched or somethings wrong because i have a 100% chance lol
I am an out-of-state student. I have a 3.05 unweighted GPA and a 3.7 weighted GPA. My SAT score average is 610 for each area. I have a 69% chance for this school. Is this off?!
I have a 99.9% chance of getting in, and I loive out of state and my stats are not even that good with only a 3.33 unweighted gpa
i think its glitched or something
I have a 100% chance of getting into this university! My GPA is 2.66 and I got a 1490 on my SATs out of the 2400 scale... I should have applied...
3.8 UW GPA here and a 1990 SAT, out of state, but i'm a legacy. Chancer thing says 48% lol.
