As an interviewer I can tell you we don't really have access to admissions in a way that would make them move on an application.

Wouldn't mind hearing from you though, interviewees!

Seems like a couple of people on this thread alone already withdrew so expect waitlist movement when deposits are due in April!! Make sure you write that LOCI and definitely visit if you can, and hopefully you're get your BlackBox soon :D

Thoughts? lmao


I'm in the same boat (waiting on Vandy) and would love to know if this is acceptable, I haven't contacted my interviewer since end of October though so I'm not sure. thoughts?


At this point I have nothing to lose honestly lol. I'll take one for the team! Let me email and I'll let you know what I get back! Interviewed and complete by 11/23


That would be awesome, thanks!! Please do let me know :)


Yes!! Thank you!


Got a response! I'll PM you both.

Thanks everyone for all the support!! It truly means the world. Still haven't had an update but I will post when I do.


I interviewed early November, my app was marked complete on 11/28, and since I've submitted some additional materials. Good luck to you and your wait! Hope it is not much longer!

Hey yall! Has anyone attempted to negotiate scholarships? I know it usually isn't usually fruitful for Vandy, but I tried anyway. Haven't heard anything back in about a week! Hoping to hear back soon.

I've been sitting complete since 1/5, but wasn't able to interview since my LSAT score in September was too low to even apply so I missed the deadline, but I did send in a fairly nice and personal "Why Vandy". However, I randomly met with a Vanderbilt law grad who lives and practices in my small town. Do y'all think this might be something to mention in a LOCI type e-mail, or should I just sit back and wait and not send anything? The only reason that I'm considering it is because I don't want them to see that I didn't interview and think that I'm not interested in the school.

I interviewed with the Associate Director of Admissions and Recruitment. Do you think it would be acceptable for me to email him? I've been complete since 12/12 and I haven't heard a peep. I'm sure he's beyond busy right now, but I'm getting anxious over here....

Complete since 1/11 and haven't heard a peep since then either. Not sure if that's a good or a bad thing, but I wish I hadn't applied after the interviews were over already :cry:

Met with the financial aid director at ASD last week, and she made it pretty clear that Vandy doesn't negotiate.
