First post ever...

Applied to 17 schools and have heard back from everyone, including getting "reserved" at Cornell but still waiting on Vanderbilt at just over 13 weeks.

Median LSAT, barely under 25% for GPA, softs are better than fine (if that even matters)

I think it's just a thing Vandy is doing this cycle. I've been complete for over 23 weeks, and before anyone asks, yes, I've contacted them.

I didn't have one right away either, but if you call FedEx they will let you know for sure.

At this rate I think Vandy is digging itself a hole come deposit time. Seems like VLS has been quick to admit applicants who will in all likelihood go to a better school, and has left realistic applicants hanging. And when they finally get around to admitting their practical candidates, it'll be too late - other schools will have shown interest & nabbed a lot of them. I'm predicting a TON of early wait list acceptances.

Love the numbers game!

Yeah, I don't think the process is quite as holistic as one would hope. And, I'm still waiting on Vandy, and it is one of my top schools. However, I have other deposit deadlines coming up.

I just took a cursory glance at LSN and haven't really been following this cycle, but it looks like they're hoping to get their median up to 168 (or maybe even back to a 169) at the expense of class size. Maybe they're not wait listing marginal candidates so they can admit them at the last minute and pretend they were always in love.

Admitted students receive a package via FexEx in two or three days from mailing. I suppose dings come via snail mail.

I didn't wait. Too impatient :lol: I tracked it through Fedex and looked for a 5lb package. If it was mailed 3/19, it should show up on the tracker by now probably.

Also, are no seat deposit numbers an automatic indication of a WL/ding?

FWW I had a 167, went complete early February, and got accepted end of February. Maybe I'm just lucky! Part of me wonders if admissions depts are just scrambling, asking wtf ahould we do?! In response to low application numbers.

So decision was mailed today but as of yet it is not appearing in the fedex thing, I know people say it can take a while but how long is too long?
