Thanks!


Sent separately. AFAIK nobody has received scholarship info yet.


I'm still waiting to hear on money from Vandy. They do offer stipends for ASW weekends, but I really need to know the scholarship $ before I go.

You don't have to register until 2 weeks before the ASW to get your travel expenses reimbursed. They said they would release scholarship info sometime in February and the first ASW is March 15. So you should be able to wait it out till the last minute to register.

Thanks and good luck everyone!

I submitted my application 12/19. My numbers were 166 and 3.75, and I have pretty solid softs.

I'd be surprised if you get rejected. Also sad, as I have the same numbers (my mailed date was 2/8, though mail in the Northeast might be delayed for a while...). Keep us posted! Thanks.

I should be at the March ASW. Normally I would lean towards free hockey (although seriously, Preds-Jackets is.... questionable), but I have a conflict for April.

I'm going to the March ASW, I'm not a fan of hockey so that made my choice simple :P Oh and I'm doing the whole staying with a student thing as well...I hope the visit gives some clarity and helps me make some (vital) decisions lol.

I registered for the march ASW since it doesnt conflict with any other school's ASW. the april one does i think. also, the march ASW has a reception event at a law firm whereas the april one has a hockey game outing. i really want practice interacting with people at law firms so i can be more comfortable and ready for interviews/internships.

I'm going to March just because I'd rather go sooner instead of later.

I will go to the March one if I end up going. I REALLY want to, but I can't commit yet! A TLS meet up would be fun though!

I got an email from a current student from my state who went to my undergrad today, which I thought was a nice personal touch. This + the black box makes me feel like Vandy is really wooing us <3

I'm pretty sure they don't have any students who went to my UG, heh, but I also got an email from someone from the same region of the same state. Smooth. 8)

It really does. From the moment I interviewed with their alumni it felt like they really wanted me.
