Is it possible that I have been stuck in an endless loop of nothingness? I have been stuck on 12/16 UR...with no signs of movement

I think it is supposed to, but I haven't gotten mail in days. I got the followup email with an attached version of the sent letter.

I got in 12/18 and just got my Vandy letter yesterday. It was separate from my acceptance package/pizza box which came way back in December, and like Joe I got a follow-up email with the letter attached (except I got the email before the mailed letter and didn't see the attachment, so for like 20 minutes I had no idea what was going on and thought they sent the email to the wrong person :P)

I've been UR since 12/24 -- what it probably means is that they're waiting for a better sense of the applicant pool before they make a decision.

I JUST got a ding email. Submitted early Dec., went complete 12/3, had UR2 12/28, and I just got the ding email today. (My status checker still says under review, 12/28.) 165/4.0

Good luck to everyone else.

btw, what is Vandy? I always thought it was the full ride for JD. But I just checked the website, and it seems to be the full ride for LLM. :?: :?: :?:

There's no JD scholarship named Vanderbilt:

While there is a "Arthur T. Vanderbilt Scholarships" for LLM

First of all, thanks to you all for your kind words! Rejection stings a bit. :(

Secondly, though, I hope they won't compound the pain by also sending a snail mail rejection! All I can attest to at this time is that the email seemed very real...is real.

Thirdly, for a mini rant, I realized recently that my 4.0 GPA from a foreign institution can't be reported by the schools (i.e. it doesn't help them with their own rankings). I always hoped I could 'offer' my 4.0 to off-set the 165, which is obviously not so bueno for the T14, but this seems to be a no-go. Having a 3.89 Ivy master's doesn't seem to help the cause either, since graduate degree GPAs are not reportable either. Somebody like me, please! Rant over. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU ALL!!!

Count me in on the UR1 12/24 train, still! Better than a ding/WL, right?
