this summer?

i got (and a lot of others on here i think) a 5k award that can be used for 1L summer if you do PI, tuition 2L, or towards summer in Venice tuition (which i assume would not be this summer?)

Ahh, that's probably what that is. I haven't been home to read the actual letter. Thanks.

Seriously, Venice is about the least productive place to study abroad. They just chose to make an Italy program to make money, knowing the infatuation a lot of upper-middle class white young people have for France/Italy (even those who've never been).

What about Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dubai, London, Frankfurt, or Singapore? If you're going to study abroad, at least go somewhere you can network for a job.

Just WLed. What are people's thoughts on a LOCI? Does Vandy accept them? If so does it need to be sent via snail mail?

Got a promotional booklet in the mail late january or february...haven't heard anything else...

No, there's no IR/UR status. You sit at complete for an unpredictable amount of time and then one day you get a decision mailed date. That's it.

Complete: 12/7/2010

Decision Mailed Date: 03/15/2011

Got a decision finally. I called FedEx however and they said they don't see any packages coming to me. The FedEx lady said that it doesn't mean I don't have a package, just means they need a tracking number to see it.

I'm failing to find the optimist in me however. Anyone else get a decision on this date?

My status says decision mailed 3/09. Nothing in the mail. What's up with that?

I got accepted via ASW email, so this is not a good sign.

I've been complete for over two months and haven't heard anything. I'm at both 25ths, have good softs, and wrote a good why Vandy - is there any hope?

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.

How deep in the summer did they find out, and do you know what their numbers were?

one with near median LSAT, sub 25th GPA
one with 75th-ish GPA, sub 25th LSAT
