I've been sitting at complete since 9/6. I'm sure we'll hear something by the end of January. I'm not too optimistic about what that will be, though. At this point I'm basically hoping for WL.

I had my alumni interview yesterday and I think it went well! I saw that the interview is supposed to expedite the review process. For those who have heard back from Vanderbilt, how long after your interview did you get the news?

It definitely varies. I had my interview in early October, and I have not heard anything since.

Anyone know when Vanderbilt sends $ offers? Pretty major factor in whether I'm likely to go here.

Same boat. I was ambivalent about my interview when I left, and now I have convinced myself that I really botched it.

Idk guys I have lsat well over their 75th / S, and so far I got no dings and good money from higher ranked universities, as well as full ride from wustl... So not getting in would actually be unexpected for me, but I guess it could happen

Whelp, didn't do as well on the December LSAT as I would have liked, but just submitted as a hail mary. Who knows, maybe I'll get WL'd and wear them down with my polite begging.

Good luck to everyone! I bet you'll be hearing back good news soon!

Anyone know if submitting a "Why Vandy" essay would help at all?

I'm a splitter at their 75th LSAT but below 25th GPA. Submitted back in October but haven't heard back yet and I think some other splitters are in the same boat. Vandy is definitely my first choice and the only reason I wouldn't go if I got in is if I was forced to pay sticker. Would writing a "Why Vandy" talking about how it is my first choice and how much I would love to go help at all and maybe persuade an acceptance out of them instead of a waitlist or worse?

I can’t say how much it would help, but I am in the exact same situation as you are and I submitted one after I visited. It can’t hurt, right?

Yeah I’m going to visit when the new semester starts and then might write one after my visit. Hopefully someone who knows a bit more about it can help us
