January 12 was the earliest people got decisions that weren't acceptances last cycle. According to last year's thread, people were mailed WL decisions on that date. So if your decision is mailed in November, you shouldn't be worried.

Got home for Thanksgiving last night and got to see the box... it is pretty glorious. I really enjoyed the book written by 3L's with some more personal advice about student life, and the faculty profiles were downright intimidating.

Haha, I know. I had law school letters sprawled all over my bed and was checking status checkers at the same time. It’s consuming my life! I have slept next to my Michigan acceptance letter for the past few days; I think I’m afraid it will leave me.

No. From Vandy's website:

Scholarship decisions are made on an ongoing basis beginning in February, and recipients are notified as decisions are made. Financial aid packages may include merit scholarships, need-based scholarships, scholarships based on combined merit and need, or educational loans.

I haven't either. Wouldn't worry too much about it

Yeah, I did. (And, I think it was mentioned earlier ITT.)

You are probably borderline then. If you want in, you should do it.

+1

I requested an interview and it's been a hell of a time actually getting one.

If you're saying this because you can't be bothered interviewing: withdraw. You're obviously not seriously interested in Vanderbilt.

If you're saying this because you think an interview would hurt your chances of admission: don't go to law school. You're not getting a job unless you interview well - or at least decently.
