Complete 11/5. Still haven't heard. At this point, I know it's a ding and have made plans to attend another school.

This happened to a friend of mine when applying to colleges. One school he absolutely just never got a response from. He called over the summer finally and asked, and it turned out they had literally forgotten to render him a decision. So I'm assuming something similar happened to me--meant to WL or ding me and just didn't get around to it.

I got an email from Vandy today saying they looked at my NeedAcess and are keeping my scholarship the same. Pretty much what I figured since they take parental income into account.

I'm abjectly poor, though, so maybe they're getting all the no's out of the way so they can divvy up the cash among us needy folk. PLEASE LET IT BE SO.

I really think this could be it. I'm sure it was an easy decision for them based on my shitboomer parents, and determining how much need based aid to give to those who qualify will take time.

If I don't qualify as poor I don't even know. And I support my mum so they can't even count money from my parent.

Hi guys! I was unable to apply to Vanderbilt before, but the more research I do the more it seems like an amazing place to go for law school.
For someone without a GPA, what do you think is the LSAT score cutoff this year?
I've been lucky to get some great offers and $$$ at schools ranked in the 20s.
Should I apply? Or do you think it would be too late? :(

Thanks so much everyone! :D

There are a non-negligible amount of schools that don't give grades. I have a few friends who are blessed to be GPA-less.

Was in already from before January, but I got a letter over the weekend giving me $35k/year plus an extra $5k that I can either apply towards a first year experience or to my second year tuition. Wow.

169/4.0 non-urm, not that special softs. Wow.

On another note, do they take financial need into account? If so, would they give me any more based on my low income?

edit: Never mind about the financial need, I'm past their need access cutoff date anyway.

Thanks for the interesting link, wokeupinacar.

I pretty much answered my own question by looking at LSN. It seems like the wall on the graph is 169.

On another note called the admissions office today and they told me decisions "can take up to 12 weeks, and sometimes they really do take up to the full 12 weeks" she seemed kinda surprised it has been taking this long.........its been 10 weeks for me but aren't there people here that still haven't heard back and applied over 12 weeks ago? just sayinnn'

Yeah you missed the cutoff date for priority decisions, but that doesn't mean that you will get nothing..you have nothing to lose other than the 28 dollars it costs to submit, so you might as well try!

My decision took 4 months. Sometime schools fall behind I guess.
