I'm wondering this too. BTW...still stuck @ 12/9 complete. Good luck to all of those that just got their decision mailed!

Is Vanderbilt willing to give decisions via phone? I'll be on spring break when my decision gets here (mailed 3/7).

Edit: went complete 12/1. changed to mailed 3/7.

They definitely won't by phone. Send them an e-mail with your LSAC # explaining your situation, and how important it is to receive the information so late in the game and so close to decision time, and they just might let you know over e-mail. They did this for my scholarship package since I was out of town.

If yours is just complete at 3/7 you're likely not getting a decision anytime soon...its the mailing date that you have to worry about not the complete date. I'm complete from back in December and still haven't heard...

Sigh. Same exact dates. I find this ominous. Did you interview? How are your numbers? I'm definitely borderline.

Yeah I'm not too hopeful. Probably going to end up at W&L anyway. I interviewed the same day I went complete, 12/1. 3.5/166.

For all you big-law-aspiring Vandy admits, just wanted to pass this along... I just came across NLJ's rankings based on associates promoted to partner in large firms in 2011, and adjusting for its size, Vandy outperformed everybody:

Congrats again on your admissions (for those of you who have been admitted)--I hope you can all make it for ASW--and good luck to those waiting it out!

Everyone who's posted on here (myself included) has gotten the box via FedEx 2-day. FedEx doesn't deliver on Saturday, so if they send it on a Thursday, you get the box Monday if you got in.
