Received 1/18
Complete 1/23
Mailed 1/31
Received the black box today!

Really impressed with Vandy's speed on my app. I have a few that I submitted the same day that still haven't even gone complete.

I have exactly the same dates. I didn't interview, so I've been worried, but my numbers were good for Vandy. I can't imagine they'd be doing that quick a turnaround for a rejection with the terrible (for them) number of applicants?


Honestly I think it must be a great sign. My decision was mailed out two days after my app went complete and it was good news. Good luck regardless!~


Got a black box today! :D :D :D


Congrats! I'm really curious about all of these quick responses in accepting. Were you contacted by Vandy first? Given a fee waiver?

Haha, I'm wondering because it seems as if they had a box set aside and when the person finished applying they just sent the acceptance right away. I don't think they had the time to fully review my application and there it was.

I'm pretty sure you're still in it. Think of when I applied and when I got a response. They just like taking their sweet, sweet time at Vandy.

Submitted 1/16, completed 1/19, got a tracking email from FedEx yesterday telling me a 5lbs-someting is headed my way from Vanderbilt, should be here by end of week I guess. Very quick turnaround indeed!

Oh BTW, I was just talking to someone in admissions last week who mentioned that hotels are apparently really scarce and/or pricey for the March ASP due to some SEC basketball thing that weekend. I'm trying to work out the logistics now, but be sure to either book a student host or a hotel soon!

Haha I would consider the SEC men's bball tourney (March 13-17, I think) more than just some basketball thing, especially because there's a good chance UF will drop a game (maybe not a good chance, but I'm hoping it happens)

I wanted to visit Tulane this past weekend but there was some NFL football game thing happening in New Orleans and hotels were super expensive so I couldn't go.

I hate when sports things interfere with law school things!

I felt similarly when I was held at UT, but it all worked out in the end. I've got a feeling this cycle is going to end up much more favorably than it looks right now.

Did you guys get a viewbook after you applied and if so, how long did it take to reach you after you applied? I applied a little over a week ago and in an email I was told they sent one but i havent received it. Obviously it is not a big deal at all but I would like one.

Is it common to write a why Vandy essay? I didn't know it was an option and since I'm on the edge it would definitely be useful for me, but how would I go about sending that? Do I just send it to admissions and tell them that I've attached a LOCI? Would that screw me over if I'm waitlisted (which is what I'm wishing will happen) and then have little to talk about when I actually need to send a LOCI? I've been complete since 12/05 and I'm getting really anxious :\

Should I be expecting a rejection/WL? Complete since 1/2, seems like everyone who has been accepted so far has had a very quick turn around.... :shock:

Anyone know when we can expect to get scholarship information? In the admit packet it says they will start giving it out in February, just wondering when that might be.

Don't be mean, sunny.

I'd guess we'll know something in the next 1-3 weeks.

I loled. I can't tell if you were trying to be nicer than Sunny or just piling on.

I thought I read someone saying admissions told them the last week of Feb fwiw.
