Got waitlisted last week with 170/3.58 (3.6 after transcript update that happened post WL). I'm surprised, to say the least. I'm going to withdraw from the waitlist as soon as I get into a better school, though, since I'm pretty sure WL accepts don't get scholarships and Illinois, ranked 4 lower, offered me 30k/year.

You got $$ at michigan. Cheer up! Worse comes to worse, you still have an awesome outcome. I'd say you still have a strong shot at NYU or Columbia though.

You'll be alright. It looks like you've got some great offers.

Edit: Just opened my WL letter. I'll ride it out, I guess.

Eh, you're probably the first person on this thread who can legitimately call YP on Vandy. But unless you were set on working in the south, you've already got a great thing going in Michigan, and I'm sure you'll get accepted to a few more top schools before this is over.

Ok here is the deal. I will trade you my vandy acceptance for your 75k at UVA. Ok good. But seriously 75k at UVA with your marginal numbers there and you're sweating vandy?

Okay, great. I'm just a couple days after so I'll just sit tight for a few more days. I guess with all the decisions going out it's not as quick as at the beginning of the cycle. Thanks!


I applied 1/9 and got the complete email on 1/20. My status checker just changed to update this today.

Thanks all. I had a strange feeling I would be WL/Rejected from Vandy. Oh well, I do love Michigan... Good luck to all those still waiting to hear, and my condolences to the others who were waitlisted today.

ACCEPTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Accepted earlier this week. Any reason why I should select Vandy over GULC?
So far, I am sticker price at both schools.
Serious comments only, please

Nah, I would absolutely choose Vandy over GULC. Smaller class, better atmosphere, better weather, better (IMO) city, and similar employment stats. But Masterhearts was asking if he should attend Vandy over GULC, and I definitely think he should attend GULC.

I definitely like the smaller classes at vandy. I really don't want a large class size. I hope I make it into Columbia..smaller classes and higher rank.
Beachbum, it would be awesome if we both end up at Vandy. Can we be roommates? I feel as if I know you already.

Decision mailed 1/19, received FedEx packet 1/21 (went complete mid-October)
As others mentioned, a very nice admissions packet!
Numbers around median for both. Very excited :)

Just checking in to say I STILL haven't gotten my fucking letter. At this point it's taken longer to get the letter than it did for them to make their decision. I finally emailed the admissions office about it, so we'll see what they have to say...

I told them that I was planning on coming to the April 8 ASP, but I would have to fly from CA. They approved reimbursing my entire roundtrip flight, the $18 round-trip fare from the airport, and $50/night hotel for two nights. Really fast responses! I'm impressed!


wow that is awesome, did you just email admissions? and did you find your hotel, flight etc. before you asked them to cover it?
