Ahhhh, good luck!!!

How is everyone checking their fedex status? I thought you needed a tracking number to track a package

If you have a FedEx acct and are signed up for the delivery notifications, they will tell you when a package is shipped to your address...no tracking number required!

Mine was mailed the day after all of you, so I guess I can expect it tomorrow! So excited.

Has everyone mailed a decision received good news?

Points for the personal touch, although based on the amount of trees they killed to put together the packet, maybe I wouldn't study environmental law at Vandy lol...

It was the absolute antithesis of Michigan's zipdrive/nearly paperless package!

Vandy's campus is an arboretum, meaning they have at least one of every species of tree that can live in Tennessee's climate. I'm pretty sure they actually just grow them to chop them down and make acceptance packets. So just think, your packet may be made from the wood of a rare, endangered tree that normally only grows in a remote area of China. Don't you feel special?

Haha--guess I will definitely be choosing Vandy now; wouldn't want that rare Chinese tree to die in vain!

Hey admits, congrats! Did any of you have an update after interview? I had mine 3 weeks ago but I'm still on my original complete from 5 weeks ago. Problem or no? I know there was some talk about this but I didn't see an answer.

Just received my 5 lbs. package! They really went all out. Very excited to visit during ASD (and they reimburse the flight/part of the hotel). Though I really like Vandy's atmosphere, It looses points for it's T15 status. Regardless, looking forward to exploring it further.

Mine did not change after the interview until a day before it changed to decision mailed.

Ooooh, where'd you get the info about the reimbursement? Is it in the acceptance packet?

Congratulations! When was yours mailed, 11/12 or 11/13?

By "looses points for T15," do you mean for being 15th rather than in the T14? or what?

Not an admit (yet?), but I asked them via email about this after not seeing an update after my 10/31 interview. They said that we would not receive an update after completion until our decision is mailed. They assured me that my interview was included in my application file and was "ready to be reviewed."

So I got an email on Wednesday to set up an interview by calling an alum's secretary....called that afternoon and Thursday, left a message, but no response. Is it appropriate to call again before the weekend, or wait until Monday to give her another try? Not sure where this post belonged, figured I'd throw it in the thread. Also, congrats to all the admits!
