I've been complete since 10/26 and haven't heard a word. I'd wait before e-mailing.

My answers ranged from a paragraph to 3 or 4 paragraphs. My length largely depended on the question.

If Vandy is high on your list, send a follow up email now reiterating your interest. I did, and two days later my acceptance package was mailed. I think someone earlier in the thread had the same outcome. Vandy is a great school in a secondary market, and a small school, so it's looking for students that really want to be there. An extra email won't hurt, and it just might out you over the top.



So you did this after you were waitlisted?

Concerning the Law Scholars application- you can generate a word doc with the info and answers to the questions and email it in to admissions. That's what they told me to do.

Hot damn...just read the bottom of the financial aid website and it says "Please note that January 10 is a soft deadline with a seven to ten day grace period." Though i'm sure using their grace period isn't the best indication that they should give me money, it's likely better than my crudely written crayola responses...

Darn. I was considering Cotton Candy, but felt it was too juvenile, so I went with Macaroni and Cheese instead.

Given the number of lawyers who carry Macaroni and Cheese briefcases, I'd say that is a pretty safe bet.

Decision mailed 1/10, does anyone with strong numbers also have a 1/10 mailing?
