When did you go complete?

September, interview in October
both 25 ths, so hoping for a big black and gold package and not a thin white letter

You should be in.

Decision mailed 1/10 - applied in September, interview late September. Below both medians - rejection?

Is Vandy the only school that mails out rejections? Seems like a weird practice. Complete 12/7, interviewed around then too, still waiting for a mailing here.

I have been complete since 11/07... Wrote a Why Vandy, did and interview, visited the campus to talk with an admissions director and still stuck with no decision mailed date. Unless my black box got lost... I am confused

Same boat - similar numbers, did an interview early November, and have been sitting at complete since 11/09. Solidarity.

So I just realized I never submitted a Why Vandy. The other day I drafted a follow up email concerning mostly how I visited the school over break and what I learned, but I decided it was too early to send it since I've only been sitting at complete since 12/1. Do you guys think it would be better for me to a) go ahead and send the email, b) turn the email into a more structured Why Vandy and send it that way, or c) do nothing at all?

The black boxes go fedex I think, didn't receive it today, did they go next day for other black box recipients?

Why hasn't Vanderbilt made a decision on me? No movement since 11/07...had an interview before that...this is absurd.

They're waiting 'til your interviewer is officially declared insane.

Wow. Nice memory. I like you.

And I freaking hope so. After I get my decision, I'm going to tell them all about the crazy bitch.

I was complete since before my interview, which was in early October. I sent a LOCI email recently. I don't get it.

I guess Vandy hates all three of us. I don't get it.

Sorry man.

@butch, this does suck. It also means that the decision mailed update no longer means a black box is on the way.

My thoughts exactly.
