Nothing here either. I'm thinking that they mailed our black boxes late Monday afternoon, so I'm going to tell myself it will arrive tomorrow.

Has anyone had success calling? My decision was mailed but I'm living on a farm for the week and won't hear until I get back.

Or does whoever mail it leave it if no one is home?

If I accept it on May 1st I have to withdraw from everywhere else?


Ah I see, hmm, that is a GREAT question. I dont see any such stipulations on mine?


There's no written stipulation. Since it says something like you have until May 1st to accept, I was thinking it was implied...But I suppose if it isn't explicitly stated...NO DEAL


I guess I just assumed that was because the deadline to accept their offer of acceptance was May 1st. But they dont explicitly state it so NO DEAL :p

Also, just remembered this from the Yale Blog

Specifically, the Law School Admission Council publishes a Statement of Good Admission and Financial Aid Practices, by which all member schools agree to abide. If you read the Statement carefully, you will see that item number 6 under "Application Procedures" states the following:

After April 1, except under binding early decision plans, every accepted applicant should be free to accept a new offer from a law school even though a scholarship has been accepted, a deposit has been paid, or a committment [sic] has been made to another school. To provide applicants with an uncoerced choice among various law schools, no excessive nonrefundable deposit should be required solely to maintain a place in the class. (Emphasis added.)

What that means, 203 readers, is that you may accept a scholarship offer -- even one that requires you to place a deposit, sign a contract, or make some other symbolic gesture of commitment -- and still keep active any applications at schools from which you have not yet received a decision. Further, if you subsequently receive an offer from one of these other law schools, you may accept that offer, any prior commitments notwithstanding.

If you aren't in a place where you can check your mail, but you can access your email, just be on the lookout for emails from vandy about ASW. I and a few other TLSers got emails about ASW the same day we got our black boxes, and one even got an email about ASW before his box arrived, I think.

Wrote Admissions Office today to ask them about my application as deposit deadlines for other law school are approaching. Ms. Kristy Maloy replied within 5 mins affirming:the office is "reviewing the files from mid-January" (My file went completed on 2/20) and it "typically takes about 10 weeks to receive a decision".

So if I went complete 1/12 are my chances pretty much 0 since its been more than 10 weeks?

I can't really tell. From what I've seen in this thread, Vandy most likely would inform you bout the decision once they had it. I suggest you write them (4 months - of waiting - is sufficiently long to justify your email) :)

Complete since the very beginning of January (it's been like 13 weeks now). Are they waiting because they are trying to figure out whether to wait-list me or reject me based how many deposits they get? Scared to send a LOIC as the last school I did that to (before they made a decision) rejected me pretty much immediately after they would have got it (timeline wise). Would it be bad to send a LOCI saying I will 100% attend if accepted (I would)? Should I just sit it out and wait? Prob gonna be a rejection any way.
