QFP of Sunny being "crusty."

ETA: I'm not asking for proof. The post itself is proof. I'm just preserving it as historically significant.

Checking in. Complete 11/14 decision finally mailed 02/20. Probably a ding, but I'm just glad the wait is (almost) over.

Just don't check your mail for three days. Hopefully the Fedex truck'll show up tomorrow.

As an aside, one of my neighbors has been ordering things through Fedex with reckless abandon. I hate him.

Does anyone know if Vandy tells you if you aren't selected for a scholarship?

The Vanderbilt website says about 70% of students are on need-based or merit scholarships, with a pretty good average award. Any chance that's mostly merit or are merit scholarships few and far between?

I haven't looked at any actual hard data for this but popular opinion is that need-based aid for law school is fairly uncommon/difficult to get, so I imagine a good proportion of those are merit-based.

Doubtful. I don't think the lower T14 would view Vandy as a peer (even if their placement is pretty close or better in the case of GULC) and at least for people with my numbers Vandy is the most generous school in the T18 as far as scholarships go. I don't think, say, Northwestern would really want to keep up with that at all.

I agree for the most part. You may be able to nudge them a bit with a few grand but I dont know for sure.

I was wondering, do you think merely an acceptance at sticker from a t14 would cause Vandy to negotiate scholly?

Called and asked about merit awards and scholarships, they are going to be sent via snail mail and should go out by the end this week.

Can you call them back and ask them to send it via email or preferably text message? TYIA!
