Really? What are the differences?


At Vandy, they will forgive 100% of your loans as long as you are making under $45K for 10 years, then it gradually increases the amount that you have to pay. At GULC, they will forgive 100% of your loans as long as you make under $75K for 10 years (which almost anyone in government or public interest will) and then it goes up gradually after that. Since the median starting salary for government jobs is $45K (from what I read), Vandy will only be forgiving 1st year's loans, while GULC will forgive 100% of loans at the school.

If it makes a difference, Duke's LRAP is at $60K, I believe.

Dropping in to say hi. :D
I'm also deciding between UT v Vandy!!
I think scholly amounts will be the deal breaker for me, barring (unlikely) acceptances from super-reaches.
I still haven't received my packet from UT and Vandy $$ haven't gone out yet, so I'll just have to wait and see.

I'm an international student so I won't make it to the ASW...
I'd really appreciate feedback from those who do make it there!!
Thanks in advance :)

I'm going to the April one. I need to be super sold before I put $750 down.

Right now, I'm having a booger of a time convincing myself to pay 200k for UMich or Cornell. Granted, it's UMich and Cornell. It's also 200k. 'nuf said.

I'm phsyched about the idea of spending 3 years in Austin. Less phsyched about spending the 10 years after that in DFW or Houston.

On the other hand, I'm phsyched about Vandy's job opportunities. Less phsyched about spending 3 years in Nashville.

Anybody else thinking these things through?

Yeah Nashville's so bad that Jack White, Mumford and Sons, Fleet Foxes, and The Black Keys all had to move here to see for themselves.

The form asks if I want to stay overnight with a law school student. I have no idea if that's a good idea or not... lol. What are yall doing?


I'm probably doing the 8th, and I do want to stay with a current law student OR a fellow applicant. I'd love to pick the brains of people doing the law school thing. I know nobody in law school or applying to law school now, so I want an opportunity to meet some people other than talking to them on TLS haha

As the source of this rumor, I would like to confirm where it came from.

It discussing visiting Vandy with the guy who handles it, I half-jokingly mentioned trying to catch a Preds game while I'm there and he said "actually, we're looking to incorporate the Thursday night game on the March ASW" or something like that.

Update!
The schedule for the March ASW has the Predators game on Thursday night! Ugh UPenn why do you conflict :(

See y'all in April!

P.S. There's a Preds game On April 8th, the Friday of the ASW. If anyone was interested in skipping the last event of the day to go check out the city/hockey game, let me know. I'd probably be down.

99% sure I'll be attending the April date. I'm staying with my brother, but I'm debating whether I should fly or drive.

I would like to take my husband, but I'm not sure if he'll be able to miss work yet. This is why my plans are only 99%. Stupid job.

Where did you see the schedule for the March ASW out of curiosity?

Edit: never mind. Found it. It got coupled with another email in my gmail (the way it couples "conversations") so I missed it.

Really???? lol just playing being an URM I was a little worried about going to Vandy (or southern schools period) but one of my bosses, whose an AA female and Vandy law grad said it is a very progressive town and you just fill like family. I definitely wouldn't mind living there for three years.

I was going to bring the parents (footing the bill) but the according to them paying for the plane tickets is a waste of money until I know where I want to go....so they arent coming.

I think schollies won't come until the end of the month. I think maybe they'll send them out with need-based aid too (to accompany the Feb. 15th need-based priority deadline)

I just changed my desktop background to the Vandy logo :lol: :oops:

If they just offer me even a little scholarship, I'm pretty much sold.

Long-time TLS reader, first-time poster.

I'm currently also deciding between Vandy, UT, and Duke. As much as I love Austin, as a UT undergrad alum, living in a new city for a few years seems pretty appealing. I'll be in Nashville for the April ASW. See you guys there!
