Sorry man, that's too bad. The GPA drop is insignificant but you never know how a DUI might affect things. Since Vandy is a small school that loves touting its students' accomplishments (All-American X, White House Internship Y, Fullbright Scholar Z...) your app may have been more tarnished here than anywhere else. That still doesn't explain schools like George Mason or Colorado, but good luck with the rest of your cycle. Hopefully better news is on its way!

Getting my mail when I get off work, but it doesn't look promising. Our school post office usually sends us an email when we have a package waiting, and I haven't gotten one. I'm almost sure a FedEx package would be to VA by now, it's gotta be a WL/Ding.

Decision mailed 2/21 but still nothing in today's mail, which is weird because I don't live too far from the school.

That gives me hope...I'm up in Boston! I had decision mailed 2/21 as well (went complete around 1/19).

Decision made on 2/21

Today I was assigned a Vanderbilt ID Number via email from the admission office (I am a foreign applicant). Does that mean anything? Thanks.

Here's to hoping I get SOMETHING today... Even if it's a WL/Ding, at this point I just wanna know.

I got in with something a bit worse than a DUI, but maybe 3.89, 170 had something to do with it? Should my admission to Vandy NOT get my hopes up with respect to other schools closer to my numbers?

I have a 3.83/169 and a DUI. Either it was my arrest or not quite getting to the 170 mark that has made my admission to Vanderbilt not indicative to how I will fair at other schools. I'm blaming not quite being at the lsat median at a lot of schools. Hopefully you'll have better luck than I did.

Yeah. Although I checked my status checker around 5:30 last night and they hadn't reported sending it...I'm hoping that fedex just doesn't have it in the system yet. :-(

Me too...called Fedex with no package

For those who already got packages and called FedEx, was it already in the system if you called the same day or next day?

Looking back through this thread I don't think it looks good for me. FedEx has no record of a package...

AT least I know now

I'm too nervous to call. I pretty much know what the answer's going to be, but I don't want it to be final...
