Can anyone sum up the waitlist protocol for Vandy in a couple of sentences? I understand they are notorious for assembling a class with TONS of people that they initially waitlisted, but does anyone know what would be good to do besides sending a LOCI ? My interview was insanely dull (630 in the morning can do that... -_-) should I request another? Does anyone know how much that could help?

Just keep in touch with them with a LOCI(s) and make sure if you send one that you have something of substance to say in it other than "I love u Vandy plz take me". So if you did something meaningful in terms of work experience, extracurriculars, if your grades improved, took the LSAT again, etc it's a good excuse to write them and let them know you are interested and you are more attractive because of whatever changed.

it might just be numbers. i didn't keep in touch or interview (in fact, i signed up to interview, and failed to meet with my assigned interviewer). i got in off the waitlist right after i updated LSAC with my spring grades, which pushed my LSAC GPA over the 3.0 mark.

not quite 60k but close. it was like 56k or some weird number. my next best offer was GWU with no money, so yea, i'm a vandy 1L. a ton of people got waitlist calls after updating LSAC with higher LSATs or GPAs. it's just gonna depend on how the numbers are shaking out for the class as it gets close to august.

FTR I got off the waitlist in mid-July with a little over 60k. This is despite the fact that I didn't interview (despite the opportunity), and did not even return the sheet of paper saying "yes I want to stay on your WL."

That said, I played with fire and got lucky. Do not recommend.

Congrats to the recent black box recipients. Is anyone who went complete a while ago still waiting? I've been complete since 12/19 and there's still no update. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping I'm somewhere between the first couple rounds of admission and the waitlist.

Complete 11/15


I was complete at 11/15 and got decision mailed the other day. This bodes poorly for one of us.

Hang in there. Might be a black box yet. Then I'll have to undo all my work to sell you on st Louis and start selling Nashville.
