Most certainly. At the very least I would guess WL + admission later on if you really love it and lobby for it. Although it might be straight admit. They're a small school, so I would imagine that, like other small schools, they have a bit less flexibility with over-admitting... you might just need to hang in there for some people to withdraw and for admissions to get a better sense of their enrollment numbers.
I'll say this for the WL people as well - the only two people I know at Vandy (a 1L and a 2L) both got in off the wait list (a bit deep into the summer, but still, they're there, and they love it!) - so keep hope alive if Vandy is your first love.
Also, again for WL people, Vandy doesn't have a rep for happy students for no reason. I think if you show you are interested (LOCI, additional LORs, etc.), they will generally er on the side of a student who really wants to be there.
Disclaimer: limited sample size of legitimately TWO people, but still.
