Hi guys! Did anyone get the e-mail today with the link to the detailed employment information? It was very nice, thorough, and honest. (Also, the data was much prettier than I was expecting). I also didn't know that law school transparency was founded by 2 vanderbilt grads.

The quick decision time, AWESOME and detailed and helpful admit packet combined with this email continues to make Vanderbilt's stock rise for me.

If only this were true for me, too! I really really like Vandy, I wish they would like me back!

Also got the email; Vanderbilt is easily in my top 5 choices now. Also didn't know law school transparency was founded by 2 Vandy grads.

There was a black box on my porch when I got home today...but it wasn't from Vanderbilt. Two words: crushing. disappointment.

Come on Vandy, love me back?

As one of those 2 grads I can confirm what the website says: we started LST after seeing the very positive response to Vandy's decision to release a nearly complete list of all the employers who hired Class of 2007 grads. Our idea was that if more schools followed their example we could substantially increase the level of disclosure that's out there and make sure people have enough data to make an informed decision. We're still working on that same basic goal two years later. Vanderbilt has consistently worked at staying ahead of the curve and we're optimistic that they'll continue seeing positive returns (which keeps the incentive to continue disclosing this stuff in greater detail). The detail wrt the post-grad stipends is particularly strong... most of the top programs have been offering this sort of safety net for years but Vanderbilt's is one of the better ones, both in terms of monthly stipend and duration. Anyone looking to do PI should contact the school and ask for more information as to the jobs obtained through the public service initiative. See if they can send you a full list including employers and location; it would be interesting to know what kind of jobs were obtained (other than mine).

G'luck to all those applying this cycle, Nashville's a fun place to live.

@observationalist, thank you for starting LST and the work you guys have put into it... as an 0L, the site has played a pretty big factor in my law school decision process.

ETA: Any idea on when the c/o 2010 data will become available? (Since I feel like a lot of the c/o 2009 already had offers from their 1L summers in 2007 and it might not be an accurate reflection of what the c/o 2015 might go through in the future.)

Remember, Vandy is one of the school that admits a ton of people the same time they releases denies and waitlists- if you look at the two graphs TLS has, it admits more than it waitlists or denies at the beginning of January. Definitely nerve wracking, but if you're an above average candidate, I'd say not much to worry about. You just happened to be at the back of the pile, lol.

Applied mid-November. Had an interview a few weeks ago, complete 11/29. Received the informational booklet in the mail today. What does that mean? I would think they would have sent the information BEFORE I started freaking out and hoping for a black box. Anyone?
