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?).


fuck man congrats...


Thanks. Hope your cycle is going well, February study buddy.


Its very lukewarm at the moment, dying to get some good news from Vandy

Stupid question, for those of you who withdrew already, how did you withdraw? Did you email the admissions office? I don't see a place on their site to withdraw.

Withdrawing via email is the standard way to do so because then the school has a complete sentence written by you indicating your express desire to be taken out of their pool of admitted students. I have yet to see another school ask one to withdraw differently.

If they had an option on their admitted schools website to withdraw, I did that. No reason for an awkward email if other options are available.

Well, that is simply awesome. Which schools had that option for you?

You send them an email and about a week or so later you get a letter confirmation of the withdrawal.

Has anyone been offered one of the name scholarships that provide full tuition plus a 5k stipend? Or the Cheatham stipend that is 5k a year on top of your other awards? Just wondering if they've given those out yet.

I e-mailed vandy saying I would take a full ride based on the stipulation that I finish higher than sunny. I'll let you know how it goes.

Same as everyone else. May 1st. You need the paperwork to deposit, so you'll probably have to call and do it over the phone or something.

Just got waitlisted via snail mail. However, online there is still no date listed for decision mailed date. Vandy being all sneaky and surprising me. Going to ride it out...

Seriously! This happened to me too. I got my letter Friday, and the decision mailed date still hasn't changed. Unfortunately, I will not be riding it out though. I went complete 1/11/13
