Probably should have done an interview, haven't heard anything after applying in early December.

Went complete on 9/1 and interviewed 9/15. Nothing yet. I'm starting to think they found a way to lose a digital application...

Same here...I missed the deadline because I hadn't originally planned on applying to Vandy, and I'm wondering how much not doing an interview will screw me over.

I didn't interview and was admitted for what it's worth.

I don't think not doing an interview is a dealbreaker but doing one definitely is beneficial. I actually did my interview directly with an admissions officer and he told me that the interview definitely will help with admisions.

FYI I applied after the interview deadline last cycle and was waitlisted. Was accepted this year after interviewing without retaking LSAT.

The law school is nothing fancy. Campus is pretty nice, but I don't find myself going through it too much (law school is in the northeast corner of campus).

I like it. The area by the law school is alright and there's a fair amount of bars, but I rarely find myself there. There's a chipolte, panera, starbucks (go down to JJ's cafe for your coffee fix, though), subway, qdoba, some taco place (pretty good but I forget the name) immediately by the school.

Nashville in general is great, though. Lots of fun neighborhoods, music venues, cafes and restaurants. The area (midtown/west end/hillsboro village) around campus is also pretty safe. I find myself out late at night often and never feel unsafe.

Does anyone know if it's possible (or even likely) to get a summer gig in Nashville? Wouldn't want to be away from my S.O. too long during an associate job.

There's a lot of construction going on across the city, yet it's an amazing place. There are great bars in walking distance, in generally every direction surrounding the campus, and the campus itself is charming. The law school building has decent views of the other parts of campus. Nashville has good food, good bars, and a great live music scene, plus two pro sports teams. All in all, it's fuego.

Fips nailed it. Nashville is great, and so far I'm really liking Vanderbilt. The professors are wonderful and student body is very sociable/chill.

Vanderbilt is in a great part of Nashville. I went to undergrad there for a while. The campus is beautiful and is like a little green Vandy bubble inside Nashville. The law school is on a corner of campus, right across the street from a Ben & Jerry's and a few places to grab lunch, including SATCO (San Antonio Taco Company), one of my favorite taco places. The location is definitely appealing to me and a lot of Nashvillains.

Does the Vanderbilt status checker ever go under review or just to complete?

I dont think mine ever went to "under review." I'm almost certain that I went from Complete to Decision Mailed.

Can confirm. No scholly info sent out yet. I expect it to show up around the same time as notifications on VLMSAs
