Unfortunately, I don't think you would have any leverage with Miami ...if you could break into the top 25 use that as leverage

I'm almost positive that Vandy does not negotiate scholarships nowadays

Has anyone heard anything in regard to financial aid from Vandy? Any insight on when/how to expect it?

by breaking into T25 do you mean in with a scholarship offer or just in? I'm in at Georgetown right now, but no scholarship offer yet...

if i get accepted, I'm totally gonna sing:

Morning just another day
Happy people pass my way
Looking in their eyes
I see a memory I never realized
How happy you made me

Oh Vandy, well you came and
You gave without taking
But I sent you away
Oh Vandy, well you kissed me and
Stopped me from shaking
And I need you today oh, Vandy

163/4.0
I don't know if a lot of other schools will be as forgiving of that LSAT score.

I thought I was URM at the beginning of the cycle but I've been doubting my URM status as the cycle goes on and I receive more info. Asian-American -- first generation though. Does that count for something???

Any idea on when Vanderbilt will mail out the next batch of decisions? Has there been a noticeable pattern or certain day of the week when more decisions are mailed?

Im antsy. Cant handle this much longer.

Is it worth it to use an acceptance at Georgetown to leverage for scholarship money at Vanderbilt? I haven't received any scholarship offers from G'town yet, but some have suggested that simply the acceptance might be able to get me some money from Vandy. Any thoughts?

Anyone know of any unofficial waitlist? I'm in the boat with some previous posters in that I went complete over a month ago and still haven't received anything or had my online status updated. :(

I don't know if there is an unofficial waitlist... quite a few people have already been mailed WL and rejections. I honestly think it has something to do with either A. They are waiting to see if we withdraw since our numbers are decent B. They are waiting to see if some who were already accepted withdraw before they offer any more admissions

Not A for me, and I've been complete since the end of November.

Vandy doesn't negotiate scholarships.
