Come on Vandy. 3.5/172. Why Vandy + Letter of Continuing Interest. Applied early October. Nothing. Was not interviewing such a big deal? Please let me in.

what makes you say that? You'll only know when you see if it's fedex or a letter.

could have been. but fedex wasn't. Plus, it's not like they gave you a tracker saying it's on its way, all they said was that they sent out a response to you that day.

It seems like the rate of decisions is picking up.

I went complete on 12/1 and am hoping for SOMETHING soon.

So far, 2 of the 3 persons who reported a DM date of 1/17 prior to today (including myself) have gotten Fedex packages. Not too sure if Vandy does mixed or same-decision batches, though.

It would appear that it would have to be Fedex, since USPS was closed on that day.

Decision mailed 1/17 - I've been complete since 11/15 and am guessing it's a rejection.

Decision mailed 1/19 -- scared. Any thoughts, trends, how long has the mail been taking...??

well for anyone who cares to read too much into this... I checked today and have the decision mailed 1/17 update. Also, I recently asked a colleague to write an additional LOR for me which LSAC just processed and sent out to schools yesterday. I had it sent to all the schools I've applied to so far. The schools that have rejected me (i.e. chicago) have little exclamation points by the report statuses which when you click say "report not generated at request of school". The report for Vandy has been generated and does not have this exclamation point.

If it's an acceptance, as little as 2 days. If a ding/WL, may be as long as a week. Btw, who is that girl in your tar?

I called FedEx, spoke to a person and they said there is nothing on its way to my address in their system. I assume that means I've been dinged, which is a cruel way to find out.

What do we know about waitlists? Ahh! This one really hurts.

jman, it's Ally McBeal.

I know, but that's the best I can do. Think of it this way. If you go to DM and you don't get your package within 2-3 days, you are probably looking at a ding or waitlist. At least as far as I know.
