Commence the thought dicking.


:D
Congrats!!!!!!


Thought dicking? I have no idea what this mean, but I can already tell that I love this term :)

Thanks, Scarlet. Most of all, I'm excited to be at the ASP with the trivia contest...we need to make a TLS team!


:-D thought dicking: the act of wishing someone well with your words while simultaneously hating them for their Accomplishments. Trademark Thelong 2011.


Haha, awesome. I'm gonna do some thought dicking to all the people getting JS1s on the Harvard page.

FingersCrossed, it sounds like interviews are across the board, but I could be wrong. Here's what the email said: "...your Vanderbilt Law Scholars Merit Award application has been chosen to continue to the next stage of the selection process; the Scholarship Committee invites you to visit campus for Law Scholar interviews."

Rwill, I didn't get a package notification from FedEx when my box shipped, so don't lose hope!


Thanks for the info! good luck with your interview!!

Still blank decision mailed since 11/14. Do you guys think it's worth it to send a letter stating my interest, or just wait it out? It's been close to 14 weeks...

good question. it hasn't been as long for me. But i really want to send one. what would you say though? i already said everything that needs to be said in the application. i feel like it will come out like: Oh btw i am still here can you just let me know if I'm in or not.

On a side note, I went to check my mailbox as the lady who sorts it was walking out of the room. She handed me an envelope saying it wouldn't fit. It was from Vandy. after a mini heart attack I ripped it open. it was just the viewbook.

I thought i wouldn't fall for it after reading some of the earlier posts. ahh so cruel.

well I didn't write a Why Vandy, so I figure maybe I should do that? If it's been this long, I'm not sure how to interpret it, since they have been rejecting people.

Glad to see I'm not the only one. I really like Nashville, too. I just don't want to annoy them. Lots of uncertainty!

Is a Why Vandy common? I figured I explained Why Vandy pretty well in my interview.

I'm not sure. I did so as well, but with so long passing between complete date and now, I feel like I should update them or explain further. I'm just hesitant to pester.

I'm in the same place wrt pestering. 11/28. Honestly I'm expecting a WL/Reject, but I don't know what is taking so long.

i thought i would be rejected instantly. i guess no news is good news for applicants below the medians? i don't know.

I did not write a "why vanderbilt" i did however submit a diversity statement.

I have been to vanderbilt before, was accepted there for undergrad. wish i went.

maybe when i hit 12 weeks ill send something in. it has only been 7 for me. although i am going crazy.

Mine came 2-day with no notification; I assume they all go 2-day. Since yesterday was a holiday, there's no way you'd get it before tomorrow unless you live really close to Nashville.

Just called VULS. They said they are still considering the various Law Scholar Awards Applications, and are not finished sending out interview invitations. They will doing that for the rest of the week, apparently.

105 days and no decision mailed. Come onnnn Vandy, stop leading me on. If I've been waiting this long just to get a rejection I'm gonna be real pissed.

Sorry if this has been discussed already, but I've heard from a few friends that they received their black boxes before a "decision sent" date was even posted on their online status.

Is this true? If so, I'll be checking my mail even more neurotically than before.

Yep. Black box arrived with no warning. And great joy.

Did you ask about general merit awards by any chance?

Nah, but I did last week when I called in (I bug them a lot). They said those are starting to go out in a week or so, on a rolling basis.
