Here's hoping :)

WL letter arrived last Saturday. I'm staying on, knowing deep down inside that it's most likely a soft rejection considering my "meh" numbers. (I'm contemplating giving the LSAT another try in June in hopes of increasing my score by 4-5 points...)

Of 14 schools I've applied to, this was one of the lowest ranked (yeah, I know the crap that comes with USN&WR rankings). I've already been accepted at 2 peer-or-better schools with great scholarships, and today I got a waitlist letter from Vandy.

Really? Why? Suck it, Vandy.

Ok, I suppose I have a mild case of rejection. It's just that so many other schools are in cold parts of the country; Nashville might have been nice!

Oh well.

Yes, I WOULD like to withdraw from consideration.

PS 171/3.4, badass personal statement (if I do say so myself)

Agreed... it's my first choice at this point... 173 / 3.1... Waiting on this one really hurts.

And is 3.4 really that bad? I could see maybe if I had a real undergraduate major, but come on- I was a trumpet performance major! Grades-shmades; I measured my success by how many high notes I could play. And you can't put that shit on a transcript, know what I mean?

With my 3.82 GPA--Vandy's 75th %ile according to the most recent rankings--what sort of LSAT would I need in June in order to have a decent shot of getting off the WL (assuming that spots open up in the summer)?

Joining the waitlist parade of sadness. A bit surprised here 3.79/168, clearly personalized Vandy PS. My App was sent out in Mid February, so maybe that hurt.

Atleast a 167, but realistically a 169+ would help alot.

bump and...

on behalf of everybody who is sticking it out on the WL, thank you to everybody who has already withdrawn...

everybody else... follow their lead... please? for me?

anyway, to keep hope alive, any movement from anybody on the WL is always nice to hear about... and seriously, good luck to everybody trying to get in off the WL at vandy or elsewhere... I'm in this hell with you...

Thank you. Will a 169+ garner scholarship money? Or will it be all dried up by then? Do you know of anecdotes of waitlisted applicants who get accepted with merit aid?

I've only heard of token amounts (5ish/yr), but for much more borderline apps. Can't hurt to ask. You definitely need to ask though. Good luck!
