Had my interview today - thanks for the advice. It went incredibly smoothly and was very laid back. Focused more on learning about Vandy than my resume or credentials. I asked most of the questions.

Went complete and had my interview in mid to late September, status changed to decision letter mailed on 11/30. Check that status checker folks!

Oh snap me too. Thanks for the heads up.

Could it be a ding or WL? Or does Vandy e-mail those?

Vandy is my reach, applying JD/PhD in philosophy. I submitted 9/13, no letter coming for me yet. Uh oh!

Good luck!

+1

This is exciting (if one assumes that the thing mailed on the 30th will be a box and not an envelope with unwanted tidings). Thanks again for the heads-up!

Got an email about the 30th mail and I don't think they could be that lame to deliver a 2.3kg rejection letter. So take it easy!

I guess nobody received anything today? LSN shows no activity anyway.

Interviewer wants to conduct over the phone. I would prefer it to be in person, can I just express this via email in a polite way or just roll with what he wants?

Also, app held until Feb Lsat and new GPA! which is good news

Nothing. Texted home asking this afternoon, hoping, but nothing. If it was mailed on Friday first class or better, it should have arrived by today. Hoping it arrives tomorrow.

Nothing for me today either brother. I'm sure it will be good news though, whenever it arrives.

Congrats guys! Don't know if this has been answered already but did the box get sent to your school or permanent address?

I also got my box today - pretty sweet birthday present :D

Mine was sent to my permanent address, but I graduated in May so I don't have a school address. Useless, I know :mrgreen:

Interview tomorrow. My interviewer asked me to email over my Resume. I don't think he too excited to be doing this, he seemed kind of rude in his emails.

My interviewer was curt and kind of pushy in his emails, then very nice in real life. Maybe that's just how a lot of lawyers are over email?

Got my box today as well, thought the whole thing was very cool! I wish all schools did this.

Yeah I wouldn't worry about it. My interviewer also seemed kind of uninterested or even annoyed in e-mails. She turned out to be very friendly and enthusiastic in person and we even got a little sidetracked talking about all sorts of random things.
