Waitlisted (to add to the pile) - Uber NON-Splitter (166/3.75). Between 50th and 75th for GPA, and 25th and 50th for LSAT. I have WE, and am gender-challenged. Besides that, I'm not terribly diverse or special.

If you guys want to speculate why you were wait listed I will add next to your name (I know smart is a strong reverse splitter and Brown is a regular splitter thats why i added for them)

I'm def. diversity (blindness) and my LSAT is accommodated so it's not a percentile/ranked score like everyone else's. I'm guessing that's why I was waitlisted. Also my employers father is a prof./adcomm at Vandy.

Bah..huge waitlist :(. Anyway I'm URM and I didn't interview. I think my PS was pretty compelling though.

You can mark me as a high GPA splitter. My LSAT is horrendous but my GPA is a little above the Vandy median.

Sorry I hadn't added you before. I knew you were waiting with us. Are you hanging out till they tell you to stop as well? Even come a week into the school year?

If you can afford it, I'd visit. Deliver the LOCI in person. Schedule a quick tour of the school. I don't know how much it helps, but they certainly tell you that they note your visit in your file.


I've heard that visiting and staying in touch with the admissions department is key off the waitlist here.. I'd strongly suggest people that haven't visited to try and go, or at least write a LOCI or call admissions.

I'm also a WL (high GPA splitter). I have a masters degree and 2 years of WE, so I may also be a diversity candidate.

Thanks for putting this together!

Thanks for compiling all this. It might be even more effective to have numbers listed as well, so folks can see where they stand.

VANDY STATS as of 5/2/10
Accepted Attending - 10
Accepted No Action - 76
Accepted withdrawn - 120
Wait List – 115



I averaged the LSATs of those accepted so far - 168.0931373
I did this and then I realized it did not matter since the accept withdrawn are essentially out of the game

I reaveraged the LSAT of just the 86 still accepted attending/accepted no action and got - 165.202381
I averaged the GPA of those accepted attending and accepted no action - 3.793


This data leads me to believe high LSAT splitters are coming off the WL first since they are currently(if everyone accepted with no action attends) lower.

good luck everyone, hope to see you in the fall!

As to the numbers trend, I think the more significant number is that you could only track down 10 people who are accepted/attending on the forum (There are obviously a lot more than that!). The reason for this, in my best estimation, is that Vandy attracts a lot of people who choose their schools based on feel rather than rank, and their primary interest (other than, you know, getting a job) is to find the best possible law school experience rather than the most prestigious experience. It was kind of funny at ASW - you could pretty much tell who was going to come and who wasn't based on their enthusiasm and attitude!

As you're tracking these numbers, you might want to also look at Duke's numbers - there's surely more candidates choosing between these 2 than any other, and I'd have to imagine that Duke tends to win that contest, opening up spots on the Vandy waitlist. This forum suggests everyone should always choose Duke over Vandy with similar $$$, but I was surprised at ASW to see about 150 of 200 people there were trying to make the exact same decision as I was between the exact same 2 schools (I clearly chose the latter). you might see a trend!

Was gonna say add me to the list, but it seems like you've pulled my info off TLS or LSN. I'll probably ride this one out through the end of July. Nice thread you've got going here; I'll definitely keep up with it.
