University of Virginia

University of Virginia Class of 2018!!!

I am so so excited to share with you this great news! I had an incredibly difficult decision to make--after being in love with University of Pennsylvania since my sophomore year in high school, I didn't think anything could sway me. Less than a month ago, for the first time ever, I visited UVa and fell in love. I was there for almost a week competing for a scholarship (I GOT IT!) and I am so so lucky to get to call such a wonderful place home next year. Although I loved Penn, I know I made the right decision and have already made a ton of friends who will be my classmates at UVa next year.

I can't wait to tell you more about the program I'm a part of, but for now,


(mad props if you get that last line which just looks like gibberish. If you want it to sound like gibberish, google "The Good Old Song" and see how fast they sing it!)


  1. congrats! I'm from Virginia and transferring to another VA school soon. Haven't quite made my pick yet, it's probably either Mason or VCU. I think you'll really like UVA, it's an awesome school and super hard to get into, so congrats!

  2. RORY!! CONGRATS!! this is so exciting, i'm so happy for you :D

  3. YAAAAY! That is SO awesome Rory, I'm incredibly happy for you! :D

  4. Hey Rory! I've been MIA from commenting for a loooooong time (that's what having a baby will do to a girl). Anyway, I saw this post & just wanted to send a huge CONGRATULATIONS! That is amazing news. Choosing a school can be so tough & feel like such a huge decision (especially when you have so many to choose from). Sounds like you made the best decision for yourself. Good for you. Can't wait to hear more about your program. Congrats again!
