Newest Wahoos Flock to Social Media to Celebrate Early Decision Notifications
December 06, 2019

The first members of the University of Virginia’s Class of 2024 flooded social media Friday evening upon learning they’d been accepted to Virginia’s flagship university.

Early decision – an application option, offered anew this fall, in which applicants promise to attend the University in exchange for early notification of their acceptance – drew 2,159 applications, most from Virginians. UVA offered admission to 748 of the applicants, or 20% of the incoming class, which will comprise about 3,750 first-year students.

There are two more application cycles ahead. Early-action applicants will be notified by mid-February. Regular decision applicants will hear from the Office of Undergraduate Admission by April 1. Both of those categories are non-binding; applicants will have until May 1 to make their decisions.

Using the hashtag “#UVA24,” the newest Hoos (and their parents) from both inside and outside Virginia gleefully shared their news online.
