And the failed coup afterwards. It's ok. Me and DP have a ceasefire and he's proven with his OP in the lounge that he's one of the best out there.

Click here for a full checklist, including detailed explanations, for the application.

The majority of the Class of 2015 (62%) graduated college at least one year before entering VLS; 34% graduated at least two years before entering. Collectively, the members of the Class of 2015 bring a wealth of experience in a variety of areas. Their backgrounds include business, science, education, technology, service, public policy, and graduate training in a number of fields.


Interviews

Vanderbilt's Website wrote:Vanderbilt encourages all J.D. applicants to schedule an admission interview as part of the application process. More than 700 VLS alumni in 37 states and 12 foreign locations conduct admission interviews, and VLS admissions officers interview applicants on university campuses and in major cities from coast to coast. Visit Virtual VLS for more information and to schedule an interview (December 1 deadline).


Based on prior experiences by TLS'ers, Vandy's interview seems to be more laid back than NU's, with most people getting asked why law, why Vanderbilt, and then discussions goes to extracurriculars and personality fit. Vandy has a very small class size, and interviewers are instructed to see how well applicants would fit in with the culture of Vanderbilt.

Also, based on previews applicants' threads, even off-campus interviewers get a copy of your application before the interview. I'll be interviewing soon and will definitely update you with my experiences.

I'd support that. We can't have lazy OPs at such a critical time in the application process.

Just got an email saying I'm in, and that a "Black Box" is on the way. (Was sort of surprised to get an email; thought we had to wait to get a decision letter in the mail.)

Does anyone know if the "Black Box" contains scholarship info, or is just an acceptance letter and viewbook sort of stuff?

ETA: Nevermind, scholarship info attached to the email. $90K total (plus a one-time $5K award to do something over the 1L summer.. does everyone get that?).

The Black Box does not include scholarship info. It is freaking huge though, and contains everything you would ever want to know about Vandy and Nashville.
