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...


Never mind. Curiosity got the best of me. Nothing in FedEx's system. To be expected. Vandy was a total reach for me. :?

My package was mailed 2/21. Letter rather. WL :(

Anyone know the size or likelihood of moving off the dreaded WL?

Waitlist arrived with Saturday's mail. 2/21 DM, 11/19 complete. Bummer.

DM 2/21 and got my waitlist letter in the mail yesterday...it looks like they waitlist a ton of people, but I'll still try my best to get in.

Pleasantly surprised by the WL letter. Was expecting an outright ding based on my lackluster numbers (3.82/164). I'm riding this one out!

Also, could taking the June LSAT and receiving a significantly higher score help me in getting off of the Vandy waitlist, or is it too late by then? Does anyone on here know instances of waitlisted candidates taking the June LSAT and gaining admission for the fall?

I assume other people got the email about scholarship info coming late next week. Anybody know how generous they tend to be? Pretty sure VULS is my first choice if the money's right.

I didn't get any email about scholarships. In fact, I've heard nothing about scholarships from Vanderbilt. With my numbers, I ought to get a lot of money. What's going on?

maybe because you were only recently accepted.
With similar numbers, I got the email, but was accepted back in Dec. Maybe you're just in a different batch of mass emails.

the email that i think sarahlawg is referring to was basically just a newsletter. you probably should have gotten it if you were accepted. the subject line is just 'Vanderbilt Law School Admissions Update #5' and the part about scholarships coming out next week is just a short sentence at the start of the email. if it makes you feel better i've been also been accepted and based on past examples on lsn should probably get a little aid and i'm still waiting to hear too.

+1 I got admitted last week and got like 5 retroactively sent emails that were dated, the last being the one saying they'll begin sending out scholarship awards at the end of next week.

Searched my inbox. Never received any email about scholarships. The last one I received was on February 5 and said "scholarship info should come out in the next few weeks." Should I be worried?

Finally called today and was told that I had to wait 14 days before my decision would be considered "lost in the mail." So I guess I better sit tight a little while longer.
