It's not just for people who are waiting. I think it's an auto-send. I got one, and was accepted over a week ago.

According to LSN, the only people with decisions are those who have been accepted. People have been accepted who have gone UR after me.
Therefore, I am, at best, a WL. :cry:

You may be, but if you look at LSN the people with lower scores they didnt accept until early to mid january regardless of when they applied. I've too been skipped over, but im holding out hope for an early january acceptance.

Did you guys do interviews?

Mine was with a member of the admissions staff and she told me they review the applications for those who interview first.

Yeah I did. My interviewer was really nice and said she could really see my desire to attend and would definitely give a very strong recommendation.

Good luck. I think more experienced individuals would tell you that something good is coming your way.

And do you know if you can apply for Law Scholars even after you've been admitted?

I'm hoping to make visits to the schools I'm accepted to and then make my decision. There is a lot to love about Vanderbilt though!

I honestly did not have Vanderbilt on my list to attend because I did not see myself getting in, but I have grown to love the school from reading about it...I am a southerner at a small liberal arts school so they're whole friendly, southern vibe is really attractive to me

For the people who have toured Vandy already… about how long did your tour take? I feel like mine was a bit short...

Joining TT! Finally had my Vandy interview this evening (ended up being via phone because the alum in my city couldn't make it)! I LOVED everything I heard, and I hope it went as well as I felt that it did :wink: Good luck everyone!

As someone who is definitely has a primary interest in a clerking, I was really surprised how well that they place students. And if I get a good scholarship, that combined with their programs and clerkships, I don't really see how I could choose it over a much more expensive school with only slightly better clerk placement.


Same here. I finally went through everything I got in the admissions package and it was very persuasive - especially the "play hard, work hard" mentality. It's definitely near the top of my list.

Vandy's topping my personal list right now specifically because of their customized joint degree option. The Peabody College of Education and Human Development is the #1 education school in the country, and since I have had a pretty deep and abiding interest in education and ed policy (presented at conferences and such) during undergrad, I'd love to be Dr. Softsgalore, Esq. and combine my interests.
