10/2- here. Visited my buddy in nashville, and got a chance to visit the school. Seemed like just about as happy as a law school can be.

I fear a storm of rejections is only days away.

Among those with a black box, has anyone got an email from a current student saying he's happy to answer my questions / concerns?

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

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


Wow, Vanderbilt is really on top of their game! I received an email from a 2L from my state who is also a member of the Black Law Students Association (which I plan on joining). They really put in work, haha.

So I got waitlisted about a month ago, I got home last night and there was a thick envelope from Vandy waiting for me... it was the color booklet that they never got around to sending me.

I agree that Vanderbilt is really on top of their game. I have already withdrawn from higher ranked schools but I am keeping the Vanderbilt option open. I can't wait to find out what kind of scholarship I might get, and I also can't wait to visit the campus.

+++1. Got the email from a 2L, asked a question about employment, got a helpful, honest, and seemingly unscripted response in about 10 minutes. Made me start thinking about attending ASW.

Honestly not saying this to be snarky but is Vandy the only school that is putting you guys in contact with alums/former students? UT has put me in contact with three people and I have received calls from Minnesota and USC students as well. It's a nice thing I agree but it's not that uncommon.

And definitely agreed that Vandy seems like a great school. Can't wait to visit!

I agree, I love Vandy. But sometimes the love on here can get a little overboard

Thus far, yes. Which is another reason I appreciate it, since I sent all my apps out a month ago.

Yep, Vandy is the only school to give me additional attention thus far. Not saying this to be snarky but Vandy/Minnesota/Texas/USC are fairly low ranked schools so that's a big part of why they have to give admits special treatment to woo them. Vandy is the lowest ranked school I applied to so no, I don't expect to get any more special contacts this cycle. I don't see why T10s would bother to expend the resources. (I know T10s do it for the exceptional candidates but I am not one of them.)

This is the Vandy thread!! Of course we are going to be pretty positive on here. I didn't reply to the UT email about getting contacted by alums, and I've only been admitted there and WUSTL thus far.

This is not true. I have been contacted by each of the T10s I've gotten into with emails and phone calls from students . I am not an exceptional student. I am pretty sure they do this for most everyone. Maybe not the T5 tho

Applied recently.

Definetly a top choice. Hoping my late app doesn't harm my chances. It looks like they're taking their time though.
