UVA has joined Princeton and Harvard in dropping Early Admissions. In its own words:
"As part of its continuing efforts to increase accessibility for low-income students, the University of Virginia will no longer offer an early decision program for applicants beginning with students applying for the class that will enter U.Va. in the fall of 2008."
