That's what it's all about. Waiting for people to drop.

Waiting sucks. I wish I could tell how many ppl are actually still considering and I had a timeframe for when I might know.

Does Vandy have only one seat deposit still? The only info I could find was from 2009.

In off of the WL! I withdrew everywhere else and will definitely be attending this fall. Good luck to everyone on the WL.

Did you write an LOCI saying you would definitely go there or did you just wait it out?

LOCI (and later updated them on an internship I started) & additional LOR and a visit. Vandy was my first choice due to their Law & Business program so I expressed that interest to them

Congrats, now please go tell your new classmates that they should really go to (insert their WL school) if they are accepted, as you heard (school name) and (city that school is in) are awesome, fun and have a rapidly improving economy that will mean tons more jobs for graduates!

Sincerely,

The Wait List

No not ED. They offered to increase my scholly if I promised not to deposit anywhere else, which I took them up on.

I'm surprised there hasn't been much activity. Last year there were a lot of admissions in mid to late June. Has anyone heard anything interesting from the admissions office?

Maybe we'll hear something soon. It has been rather quite. Maybe there'll be a big wave? One can only hope.

In at Duke with roughly same scholly, so I emailed the admissions office at Vanderbilt to see if they would up their offer. I don't think they will, so looks like I'll be withdrawing and opening up a spot for someone.

Based on LSN and this thread in comparison to years past, does anyone else feel that Vandy hasn't admitted many applicants from the WL this cycle, given that we're in July now?

Does anyone believe that more people will be admitted in the coming days or week(s)?
