My deepest sympathies to all of the releasers and congrats to everyone who got an update. I haven't gotten either one yet - maybe I'm soon.

Did anyone else receive a "Vanderbilt Law School Wait List Update Acknowelgement" e-mail? One of the included sentences was "If offered admissions you will be contacted by email and/or phone," and I hope they aren't giving me false hope lol...

I had the same concern. I called yesterday and was told they had sent it. Technical problems I guess. They said there had been a few ppl with that problem and they re-sent it

Dear Matteliszt:

Thank you for keeping your application under consideration on our wait list. At this time, we have determined that we must release your application. With more wait-listed applicants remaining under consideration than usual, we think it wise to narrow the pool to be considerd (yep with typo) should space become available in our entering class. We have had to make many difficult decisions this year with 4,884 applicants competing for 195 places and in our entering class and with a larger wait list. We appreciate your patience with our process.



Thank you for our interest in Vanderbilt, and best wishes for yor (yep, with typo) education and career plans.



Sincerely,



G. Todd Morton

Assistant Dean and

Dean of Admissions
Vanderbilt University Law School
131 21st Ave. South, Ste. 106
Nashville, TN 37203

Sorry Matteliszt! I knew you really wanted Vandy! Are you riding any other wait lists this year? I got the update email as well. Will send in a new LOCI soon. WLs=hell!

So the implication is that those who haven't received the waitlist email should be receiving it soon?

How is everyone submitting their LOCIs? Should I send it directly to an adcomm or simply reply to the waitlist email?

I'd address it to G. Todd and send it to the generic admissions e-mail. For what that's worth.

They said my gmail must have caught it as spam (my spam folder was empty). Regardless, I asked that they resend it so I think your best bet is to call them and ask, if not to just reiterate your interest

Had y'all previously received notification of the return of your WL form?

I got an e-mail w/subject:"Vanderbilt University Law School Wait List Response Acknowelgement" about 2 months ago when they got my response to the WL offer.

If you got another "Acknowelgement," then I assume that could be good news (misspelling notwithstanding).

Also, just wanted to also say that this is truly shitty and a mistake on Vandy's part:

Dear Matteliszt:

... we have determined that we must release your application

If you're still checking in ... where you headed?

I received that email as well. Don't know if it's good news or not, but I guess it's better than nothing.

ozarkhack, this was the second acknowledgement e-mail I've received. I confirmed my wait list candidacy back in January.

Perhaps those of us who responded to the wait list e-mail received it?

Vandy
Norte Dame
Fordham

I withdrew from Davis

I got WL-->rejected at Vandy/Fordham/Emory and will be withdrawing from pretty much everywhere except ND which I am not even sure if they pulled me up if I would go. Hopefully see some of you in Fall, I will be checking into this thread every now and then. Good luck with VULS!!

+1 except mine was from Mr. Willard directly, probably because I sent it to him directly.

I sent in a LOCI and I got the 'thanks for responding to the wait list email'. I never actually received the wait list email so this is ok news for me.

I got an e-mail response with the call/email line. I don't think it really means anything considering the number of people who received it.
