I did the interview with ad rep. The interview was probably half an hour. Admittance Decision was mailed ten days after interview.

Ha, I think I am waitlisted because I don't see any packages from Fedex. I think it is because I didn't request an interview. Funny because everybody with my stats has been accepted thus far. If true, somewhat petty of Vandy. Then again, they did waitlist some people last year only to later offer acceptances plus large scholarships.

I did a Skype interview in mid-December (about two weeks before I actually applied). It lasted about 35 minutes, including the 3 questions that I asked at the end.

Scoobs,

Your banner in the OP is very Wes Anderson-eque. Intentional?

So has anyone interviewed with an alum in person and not have their status update? I interviewed in late November and had no update afterward. Sitting at 11/19

Is there an ASW we know about that I should pencil into my calendar?

I can't go to an ASW, so I'm visiting Feb 17-19 (they've arranged for me to sit in on a class/tour/all of that). They're amazingly accommodating.

They'll pay for you to rent a car and give you credit towards a hotel room. Or you can stay with a student for free.

ETA: or a plane ticket if you're really far away, I think. I drove so take that with a grain of salt.

If they do the same thing they've done in years past, if you're flying they'll set up the flight for you so you don't even have to worry about shelling out and getting reimbursed.

They book the flight for you but you have to pay upfront and then they'll reimburse the full amount. Still pretty awesome of them!


If I'm traveling with someone will this make it difficult? Obviously I wouldn't expect them to pay for him too, but would we be able to get tickets together?

I would just call them and see if there's a way you could work it out. The admissions office is incredibly nice, and you're already in! Be adventurous.

I'm doing this! I just filled out the travel form and requested the exact flight numbers that my travel buddy was going to be on (noting that I was trying to travel with someone). It worked out fine! We're in the same row and everything! PM if you need more info on how I did this but it was pretty simple. I'm going on a non-ASW visit, but the form is the same, I believe.
