WL today! At least it wasn't a rejection. Just spoke with admissions (one of the more friendly offices I've spoken with yet, unlike some others that come to mind ***cough***UNC***cough***) and they said that they won't even start making WL decisions until the middle-end of april. :shock:

Is anyone who is on the waitlist going to wait it out/hold out the possibility of making 11th hour changes after committing to other schools? I really love Vandy and think I would eat a deposit if I was offered a slot, even if it was at the last minute. Any others in the same boat?

At first I wasn't going to. Now, maybe :P

ME! I'm on seven waitlists though, so I'm probably going to be eating a lot of deposits...

Damn, I can feel your pain. WL is almost more frustrating that a rejection, cause its tough to know when you've found some closure. I guess at this point it'll be good to go ahead and draft a couple different LOCI, plan on sending them at staggered times and maybe plan to visit/interview to emphasize the interest. Well, cheers guys, here's to the long haul...

Hi all, this is my first post on TLS, so please be kind. I was just wondering if any other people are DM 1/22. My VULS says DM 1/22 but I still haven't received anything in the mail. Any information about what the decision might be? Thanks!

On the website I think it says Decision Mailed can take 7 days? I wouldn't worry about it yet. Have a beer and chill out.

I have a good LSAT (not great for them though), bad GPA ... and I don't think Vandy has been LOVING the splitters this cycle. I'm just praying they like my WE and essays, and might be willing to take a chance on this one. But you're very right - no news is good news, if they wanted to reject me they would have done it by now :wink:

I will move and go to Vandy even if it's 9/1/10.

For those admitted, anyone planning on attending their Admitted Student days? They said they'd be sending more info about that and applying for a travel stipend and I haven't gotten anything :O(

I'm basically of the same inclination.

If Vandy comes through (before August however), I would definitely rearrange things and attend if I am not accepted to Cornell, Texas, or UCLA. I've received a pretty big scholarship from a T-20 as well, which I am definitely considering to boot. Still, Vandy is a top school for me. I will definitely be sending in a LOCI.

I was thinking I might actually make the trip...haven't ever made it down to TN so might be fun to check it out :lol: I haven't heard anything about signups since the email a few weeks ago.

Wish they'd start sending out those scholarships soon too... :)

This is a better question to ask. I'll bet the answer depends on what other school we're comparing with. If it is a T14, then probably yes. If it's something else - especially with scholarship money involved - probably not.

For those considering Vandy - another reason to go...

"Beal scored 25 points and No. 21 Vanderbilt won its 10th straight game with an 85-76 victory over No. 14 Tennessee on Wednesday night. It was Vandy's first win in Knoxville in five tries and its first win over a ranked opponent this season.

Stallings has plenty to feel good about besides Beal's clutch play. Vanderbilt (16-3, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) is off to its best start in the league since 1966 and will head to No. 1 Kentucky with control of the SEC East."

168/3.4 looks like a WL on LSN (http://vanderbilt.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats), but you never know. Softs might put you over the top?

Good luck to you; I went complete mid-Jan so I won't know for a while.

i was accepted in the 08-09 cycle in the third week of january. dont put a ton of stock in those theories. not that i can tell you what each of your decisions will be, but just stay stressed (i wont pretend its easy to relax) and watch your mailbox. good luck, all. and if you get in, go to vandy. if you get waitlisted, send LOCIs and go to vandy.


FYI, Vandy-UK is on ESPN Saturday afternoon. Tune in!
