More like, I'm watching people who have gone complete 1/28 and are getting decisions mailed. No need to be a jackass, champ!

No that I have even a decent chance to get in with my stats, but my app has been complete since 11/24/2009, with no word.

Thickfreakness is just playing with you, relax. Realize that there are people who have been waiting here for MONTHS, so don't exagerrate how much Vandy "hates" you by making you wait 10 days. The complete 1/28, DM 2/2 is the exception, not the norm.

So is this not good news for me since I got such a quick turnaround? *sigh*

That doesn't mean it can't annoy me! I'm well aware others have been waiting much longer, and that I'll be in limbo until March or April. Regardless, it's going to suck watching other people get decisions and not having any movement myself.

I was just messing around. I submitted in early January and I'm still holding with auto admit numbers. I can sympathize, for sure. You could try sending a LOCI-like e-mail, but that might do more harm than good since you've only been complete 10 days.

Just got a call from my mom

IN. BOOM.

She also commented on the brick-like nature of the packet.

Any DM 1/29 people received their decision letter from Vandy yet? If so, would you mind posting what part of the country you are from? I'm anxiously awaiting my letter in California. Thanks!

It's fine, it would be creepy if I started sending things at this point, because I applied right after the Dec. LSAT results came out. I'm unsuccessfully trying to forget about the entire cycle.

I'm sure you're fine. You almost never receive that fast of turnaround for a rejection. Considering you have decent numbers and are URM, I think you're in.

IN at Vandy.

Complete 1/18, DM 1/29 (Good news for all you DM 1/29 people).

Did not do a "Why Vandy essay." Did not interview. Numbers at both medians. 168/3.75. Acceptance comes in a massive package.

Someone up there (heaven and/or Nashville) loves me.

I also did not do a "Why Vandy" or an interview.

I don't really understand the quick turnaround (168/3.8). Maybe my softs are better than I thought?

The undergraduate consistently ranks on Princeton Review's list of most homophobic universities in America. Last year, there was a straight undergraduate and his friend who decided they didn't like to see a gay couple kissing and hence proceeded to beat them up. From what I can remember, his friend has a warrant for his arrest out in Davidson County (Nashville). The undergraduate who did the beating up was suspended for one semester. The administration did take [this event] as a wake-up call and is generally very gay-friendly as is most of the faculty. A new Vandy GLBT center (housed in its own building) opened [in 2009] with two full-time employees. Much of the undergraduate student body remains virulently homophobic (not to stereotype, but I'd say particularly those in the Greek system) and a number of gay undergraduates (ironically, some in frats) stay pretty quiet about it out of fear of reprisal.


How much should this deter me if at all? Ha. After four years at a pretty intensely conservative university, I don't know if I really want to deal with more of the same.

IN at Vanderbilt today in New York via USPS at about 11am! Submitted December 24th. The package is huge and beautiful. It's clearly geared towards students from outside the area, much of the package is devoted to moving/getting settled/what to do around town. But there's also info about the faculty, clinics, and school.

Good luck to everyone!

Yeah, I love the "handbook"...this is the only school that I've seen give out something like this, and it gives a great feel for what the 1L experience will be like. A lot of it even applies generally to all schools. Nice touch, Vandy.

Nashville's awesome. Rains all the time though. Weather's crazy here, it was 60 outside a week and a half ago... and mid twenties with about 6 inches of snow three days ago. That's a common occurrence, minus the snow.
