LOL. Everyone ALWAYS mentions the black box. But no one ever talks about its contents...

Oh, man! I'm sorry woods! Yea, I think you can def send in a LOCI now. I think they are just infatuated with that video you sent in and are watching it over and over and over again ;-)

I got the same thing a month or so before I found this thread and knew anything of a black box. I got ridiculously excited as my husband and I opened the "big envelope" to find...a brochure inviting me to apply. Not gonna lie--pretty confusing at the time.

I got the brochure after I got the black box (which had an identical brochure).

Come home and gf says "you got something from Vandy!!" all excited-like. Notice it's a big envelope, feel a pit in my stomach thinking it's a WL or rejection or something else bad. Open, and it's just the viewbook. Stop messing with me Vandy!

Tmon, you're getting in because I said so. There. And then we can go to ASW and have the fun times together.

Oh Vandy...you're the first school I applied to but the only one I'm still waiting for (I'm giving USC a free pass since I literally applied on the last day). Please satisfy my impatient heart soon <3

I have this image in my head of the adcoms sitting around looking at my app with confused looks on their faces like- what should we do with this applicant? Ahhhhhh, SO CONFUSED! Should we waitlist her or just flat-out reject her? But seriously, this is happening to me with a lot of schools. I don't know what it is about me that makes people so indecisive.

I'm getting that from Michigan. Going on 5 months now. The email sent out was like "we aren't sure what to do with you".

Yes!

I think we can assume the "countdown" starts today since yesterday was the official deadline for their need access scholarships... Also, does anyone (here's where you current students come to the rescue) know if the schollies come in via snail mail or e-mail??

I would guess snail mail just because it doesn't seem like they send important info via email

+1 at UCLA, NYU, Northwestern, and Michigan. They're just like, we maybe like you, but not enough.

Seriously Vandy just gave me a heart attack - open my mailbox to see a thick packet, and what's inside...the damn view book. Way to send it to me a month after I apply. lol

Got my view book in the mail today. But that wasn't nearly as exciting as the black box that also arrived today!
