Did anyone send a thank you note to their interviewer? I would like to but I'm thinking it might be weird to look them up at their firm and send it to their firm? Anyone send a thank you?

Sent one via email, it's just easier and more convenient imo.

If you want to do it, you can just use the same email they contacted you with. On our end we use a portal that manages our interviews and forwards emails to the applicants, but I don't know how it looks on your end.

I think all of my interviewees have sent some sort of thank you email. It wouldn't be weird to send it to their firm, but it might take them a minute to figure it out. The nice thing about the portal is it keeps everything in one place, so I don't have to check a bunch of different email accounts.

I am fairly certain I did not apply for the law scholar merit awards. Is this something I can contact admissions about being considered for, or am I SOL?

It's a separate application and I don't think it is due until January. So you're not SOL at all.

Does anyone know if Vandy is a peer school for UCLA in terms of scholarship negotiating? Or should I apply to UTexas instead or both? I know USC is, so I already applied there (waiting on a decision) and I'm trying to find ways to maximize my scholarship at UCLA, which is the only non-T14 school I'm seriously considering. I'd appreciate any insight into this! Hopefully this is in the right thread :)

I would imagine it is, especially since they are closer in rank than UCLA and USC.

Wondering if I should email my interviewer or admissions to make sure they have my interview information.
I interviewed 10/10 (I thought it went well), then applied 10/20 my numbers are 25<GPA<50; LSAT>75. When I got my email confirming that they received my application it had language about scheduling my interview. At the time I didn't think anything of it because I assumed it was a stock email, but now I wonder if they didn't receive my interviewers eval? Anyone else in this situation, or have similar language on their confirmation email?

So I definitely called about this like a loon yesterday, and they basically said that if the hold up was from the interviewer, then they would handle it. Translation: stfu and calm your ass LOL

My status checker says a decision has been emailed to me, but I haven't received the email.

I emailed admissions to let them know, and now I will have a heart attack as I wait.

Relax... when my status changed to that, it took a few hours to receive the email. It'll come, soon enough.
