+1

Hoping we can chalk up the wait time to their holistic review process though. They do have the disclaimer that some apps take longer based on their individual-oriented approach.

Yep! My status checker went straight from complete to decision mailed . Took an hour or two for the email to get to me. No seat deposits or anything.

How are you in shock? You'll probably end up at a T10, easily.

I guess I'm in shock because it's my first acceptance. I hope my cycle goes as well as you say!!

what does your status say? complete or UR? similar situation. mine says complete and hasn't changed but I interviewed. I'm curious whether the status changes at all for Vandy when under review or not and not sure if I should be concerned that mine hasn't changed at all.

Mine went straight from complete to decision mailed with no date changes or anything. Never said under review for me.

I talked to the admissions office at Vandy and they said they only have 3 status situations. File received, file complete, and decision made.

Thanks guys, that makes me feel a little better. Been "complete" for so long, I interviewed, and submitted the scholars program application that I was starting to worry. I guess I'd rather them keep thinking about my app then give me an expedited rejection lol I hope that it doesn't end up being bad news. Good luck to everyone in a similar situation!

Is it weird if I send the admissions a Why Vandy now if I submitted on 1/9? I made a decision to apply after the interview system was closed, so I think it may be a good idea as they're one of my top choices. That being said, I don't want them to be like, "Why are you sending random documents, so annoying," etc. Has anyone else done this or know of anyone who has?

I don't think a Why X essay could ever be considered too much. Use discretion, obviously. Don't go ham lol. Sending them a Why X essay is flattering to them, I would think.

Since you're obviously going to Yale or Harvard why not go ahead and preemptively decline the merit award so one of us plebeians can benefit from it :D

Did the Vandy app have a "why vandy?" Optional essay? I can't remember.

No, I don't think so. You could add one if you wanted.

Vandy is killing me. Interviewed mid-november. Submitted 12/30. Complete 1/4 and nothing since. Do Vandy apps just never go to UR? Or are they extraordinarily slow?
