The McIntire Undergraduate Admissions Committee is composed of four
faculty members. Each faculty member separately reviews and makes
independent decisions on each applicant. After the independent reviews,
the group meets to reach consensus on each applicant.
Important academic factors considered by Admissions include cumulative grade point average, academic performance in prerequisites
and those courses related to business (accounting, economics,
mathematics), and degree of difficulty of courses taken to date as a
demonstration of the student’s general ability and desire. Also, skills
and personal characteristics such as leadership, communication, work
experience, and time management are considered, as demonstrated
through extracurricular activities and application essays.
Some of the evaluative criteria used in the review process are listed below.
Additionally, the committee calculates a mini GPA, used to evaluate the
applicant's performance in classes most closely related to business; the
mini GPA includes COMM 1800, 2010, and 2020; ECON 2010 and 2020; math;
statistics; or UVA equivalents of any of these courses.
It is important to remember, however, that GPA is not the determining
factor for acceptance into McIntire. All applications to the Comm
School are given serious consideration. GPAs are only one of many
important factors that the Admissions Committee reviews. Leadership,
communications skills, work experience, co-curricular activities, and
the desire for a successful business career also play important roles.
