Still finishing up my Law Scholars app. Thank goodness for this 7-10 day grace period.

Did anybody get the employment brochure that they said they were sending out in that email last week? I'm highly interested in this.

Received my black box about a week ago! I'm not expecting to receive any of the full scholarships but it would be very nice. Does anyone know what types of numbers received these scholarships in the past (sorry if this has already been asked)?
3.93, 170

It's on the bottom of the VLS web page describing the scholarships. http://law.vanderbilt.edu/prospective-s ... index.aspx

I got decision mailed: 1/16. They totes just email a WL or a rejection, eh? :)

Also, when should I expect said decision? I live in the Pac NW.

DLS 01/16!
Applied 01/03, Complete 01/10!

AHHH! YAY!

I applied for the Merit Scholars Awards - I won't hear about scholarship in this letter/box, right? Those decisions will probably come later?

I just got an email that VLS assigned me an ID number but I haven't got any box or email yet. Does that mean I'm in or is that just a generic change for their applicant records purposes?

Just saw my decision was mailed 1/16. Hope I get the big black box, not some stupid "we hate you" letter.

Just a word of hope/anxiety, my status never updated to say decision mailed even after I got the box, so ... you might not get any warning.

Oh good, I was worried that I wasn't obsessive enough about checking the mail every day.

I got a decision mailed update on the 14th. Has anyone been rejected or waitlisted yet? I'm really hoping for the best here, because with my numbers this is a serious reach.

Hm, no -- haven't gotten that yet either. They definitely seem to be moving at a molasses pace this year (not unlike every other law school in existence...)
