I requested one and it took longer than two weeks, so I called the admissions office. They said the alum they tried to contact hadn't responded, so they didn't have an interviewer ready. Admissions then reached out to a different alum who interviewed me only a couple days later.

Are interviews given much weight or are they more of a tie-breaker type deal like softs?

Also, I'm assuming how long it takes to hear back following the interview varies depending on scores and stuff?


My interviewer told me the point of the interviews was to judge your interest in Vandy, and to 'basically make sure you aren't a crazy person and that you have some personality.'

Mine was the exact same--very conversational. I heard back within a week and a half of my interview, but I'm assuming it varies. Good luck!



When you say you heard back, do you mean your status changed to decision made? Or that the decision actually arrived that quickly? Just curious


Both. It changed to decision made within a week and a half of the interview, and I got accepted the next day.

Complete on 11/6 and interviewed last week. I have my fingers crossed for good news.

For those who have been accepted, how long did it take to receive the package after seeing 'decision mailed'?

Signed up for a FedEx account and don't see a package listen anywhere. Officially worried.

From creeping on the earlier posts it sounds like you are better off calling and asking. I think for the account you have to have the tracking number?
Good luck!

I didn't sign up for an interview...how much worse are my chances? I'm an international applicant from Canada...not sure if they would have had an interviewer near my city anyways

Yes, calling FedEx. Seems like that's what others have done!

Did you sign up for Delivery Notifications? It took mine sometime to refresh and show me a package. Also, mine didn't go out until 5ish the day my checker went to Decision Mailed, so I wouldn't be worried yet!

OK. I am a bit worried, bc FedEx says they have nothing headed my way. I'm hoping something appears here soon.

It took a full day after I went "Decision Mailed" for Fedex to have the package in the system. Don't stress, try calling back tomorrow morning! :)


Oh man, you just calmed some nerves for me. It's 5pm and there's still nothing; I am getting really nervous. Mylsn.info reports that every decision during Nov./Dec. in the last three cycles has been an acceptance, but still... I am nervous.

Hoping it will be there tomorrow.

Btw, I'm looking at FedEx "InSight" is that the correct area to be looking? Thanks

...WHAT. C'mon, Scoobers. Can you at least PM me what it means if it's supposed to be cryptic? It's like Inception. I go to this forum because I'm trying to make sense of the admissions cycle and then I see the poll and leave even MORE confused.
