I'm pretty sure they forgot about me too. I went complete in August, and interviewed in September I think. They have sent me a bunch of view books since, but I haven't heard a peep from them. I don't want to pester them, but I'm getting anxious.

I went complete the same day. Do you mind sharing your stats? Good luck btw, although I am totally expecting for you to get an acceptance.

Does everyone's status check update after the interview? My last update was on 10/24, and I interviewed on 10/31. I'm a little worried that my interviewer didn't send in his notes.

Not at all! 167/3.7, so basically right around their medians. Yesterday was nervous about so many other decisions being mailed, but now mine has been too!

EDIT- Just noticed I wasn't the one you were asking! Ah well, there it is anyway.

Vandy asked me to reconsider to have an interview while I chose to forge when I submitted the app. Completed 10/21

Just wondering- why did you choose to forgo? It takes very little time, and my impression is that unless you really put your foot in your mouth they only strengthen your application. Mine, as seems to be the case with everyone else here, was pretty low pressure!

I also declined an interview on the application because I wanted a decision ASAP. I feel like it'd be more appropriate if I were waitlisted.

They seem to use interviews to gauge interest, and their timeline isn't quick anyway, so for most people the delay won't mean much. If it's a school that's actually high on your list, turning down a chance to interview might not be the best idea.

(Also, it was the most fun part of the application process for me! I know a lot of people who echo that sentiment.)

Based on last years thread, it is like a huge binder with everything you need to know about Vanderbilt/Nashville

If someone with an 11/12 decision mailed date gets the package, please let us know! I have an 11/12 date but won't be home until later. I hope it comes today.
