It may not be too late to sign up for a fedex account. It's free and you get emails/texts about deliveries coming to you. Otherwise call Fedex CS and ask if there's a package coming to you.

Complete as of Feb 16th, still waiting.

Does anyone know what Vandy's policy is on multiple deposits? Do you have to void all other offers to accept Vandy's offer? I'm also waiting on Duke and UVA.

I submitted my application January 31st, not sure when it went "complete" or anything like that, unless it was the next day, which is what my e-mail seems to indicate.

I got an email today inviting me to interview for the Law Scholar Merit Awards during Admitted Students Weekend (March 16-18). Unfortunately, that is when I will be at Berkeley's ASW :/

The email also mentioned that those unable to attend ASW could interview April 6-8, but that they will already have given out some of the LSMAs. Does anyone have a gauge for how many they usually award (and how many of those awards are usually accepted) in the first round?

They typically interview 3-4 per ASD. I don't know how many offers they usually give at each, though. There are usually 4 awards given per class, unless that has changed.

If my current status says "Decision Mailed" but I haven't received an email, is that a bad sign?

Anyone else still waiting on scholarship stuff? I'm at or above both 75ths and still haven't heard anything at all (either regular scholarship or merit scholars invite). Figured I should have gotten at least something by now...

For reference, I was accepted early January

No news is good news. At least that's what I'm telling myself to feel better.
