Just got the acceptance packet, you guys weren't kidding! Blows USC's piddly little folder out of the water.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective) they're only giving me 30k and that's just not gonna be enough.

Edit: this Obiter Dictum book is seriously awesome tho, def hanging on to it

I am withdrawing since they do not negotiate the award (I tried). Putting 89 K back.

Good luck everyone!

1800-463-3339 then dial 0. Say you don't have a tracking number, they should be able to see if you have a package coming to your address. HTH

They'll ask you whether it's ground or express. Say express.

No decision mailed yet. Are we screwed at this point if we're still waiting?

Nevermind! Decision mailed 3/31! I don't have time to dig through archives, anyone know if Vanderbilt does unified batches or mixed mailings?

Also, would it be too early to call FedEx. I need to know for sure...

FedEx will have it in their system as soon as they issue the mailing label.

Out. out out out, no package. I suppose it's possible that they, like most schools, don't really send it until a day or two after they say they do, but given that this is Fedex...fuck. Looks like my cycle will be 3 for 15. Still waiting on 4 places, but not holding my breath. Psyche destroyed...

could be a WL...you know, the sunny side of things.

and if it makes you feel better (probably doesn't, but i'll try), about half the people who apply for law school don't get in ANYWHERE (they're just not on LSN or TSL typically). could be worse? haha

that being said, i haven't gotten an answer and it's entirely possible i won't get a package either

When do we have to make a decision whether to accept a scholarship/when is a seat deposit due?

I still haven't visited... I need to get around to doing that..

May 2nd. $750.

ASD is this Friday. They are very good at reimbursing travel costs, but I'm not sure about this close to the ASD. I'd email and ask. I know they'll reimburse you $200 for flight and 2 nights at $50/night for hotel without any approval, but you can request more reimbursement.

Thanks! I'm going to another ASW this weekend, so I might have to come down on my own sometime. I hope all of you have a great ASD!
