Anybody else out there not realize the interview deadline was tomorrow until the e-mail response to the app submission? I submitted last night then tried to get up with them throughout the day to no avail. Seriously annoying. Surely it won't be a ding to my app if I don't get it done tomorrow, right? I mean it's not listed anywhere that I saw on the app form or website.

Not sure how significant the interview deadline is but if you call the admissions office they should be pretty accommodating. At least they were in my case earlier this week.

On another note, has anyone seen any numbers of how transfers have fared in the past at Vandy OCI?

Yeah, but I'd prefer not to share my stats. If you have other questions, I'm happy to answer. Good luck!

What was the turnover from application complete to a decision?

FYI, the admissions office said apps and offers are way down this year. They're planning on filling 8 spots from 50 apps.

They are only accepting 8 transfer applications? How do you know this?

I was told during my interview. FWIW, they also said they are emphasizing employability this cycle.

Any idea why they are taking so few? Also, the employability aspect seems to make sense. I was asked a few questions that seemed to be hinting at employability.

Nope. Half The Apps = Half The Offers Makes Sense Though.

Does anyone know how long it takes to receive a decision in the mail once they send it? Also do they let you know via email or some other avenue besides standard paper mail?

I thought a phone call. But, I was wondering the same thing as well. I can't imagine it would be through snail mail considering OCI is the 20th for them.

I did very well at a 3T/4T school, but I did get into ND which is sort of close in rankings. I thought it was weird that they didn't send any communication and just one day I randomly got a letter in the mail. During the interview they said they would let people know by third week of July the latest. Hope that helps.
