I took advanced placement classes, got really good grades and had a high sat score. I advise anybody that wants to go to Virginia to do the same.

I got in with a 1.7 GPA out of high school alongside a subpar 1600 on the SAT. Brilliant, huh?

I know that people look down upon community colleges, but as I tell everyone, hey, it got me into an amazing school! If you didn't do well in high school, don't be discouraged about getting into UVA. I went to a community college for two years and maintained a 3.6 GPA and got in :)

I had almost a 4.0 in high school (I got 1 B) and had a 34 on my ACT. I also was involved in some clubs at school, and had leadership positions in them. Since I was also interested in government, I had some activities pertaining to that, such as Girl's state and being a Congressional Page. I also made sure my essays were proofread by multiple people.

Good luck!

It's hard to get in. You need good grades and high SAT scores. Putting all the effort to get in is worth it! Great college, worth every penny!

To get into UVA, you need over a 4.0 (weighted), a decent SAT, lots of extra-curricular activities, etc. Everything on your application needs to be relatively spotless, with a few mishaps (I got in with 2 Cs throughout high school but mostly As otherwise in many challenging classes and TONS of extracurriculars).

GPA should be stellar, close to perfect. Top 10% class rank is requisite. UVa puts more emphasis on GPA than test scores which should be reasonably high (2050+ for in-state, 2150+ for out of state) but not astronomically so. Leadership, recommendations, essays, and accomplishments all seem to count equally. A strong articulated interest in UVa may else help a prospective student.
SAT: 2150 Male
