My numbers are auto-reject (with no interview or why Vandy essay) and I've been complete for over two months, so I was starting to convince myself that lasting this long without a ding was a good sign. Then I looked at LSN, and it seems that, with one exception, they haven't dinged anyone with a complete date later than November (scroll down a bit to see all the rejections):

They have to start rejecting the rest of us at some point soon, right?


You've got a decent shot at WL. Don't give up yet.

Thanks, rad law. I'm not giving up. I'm just curious, more than anything. The more I try to divine the inner workings of law school admissions committees, the more confused I become.

Speaking of, they said those were being released sometime in Feb. Anyone hear anything yet?


They said the decisions are coming out in mid through end feb.


Email from Vandy:

Vanderbilt Admissions Office wrote:The Financial Aid Committee is reviewing Law Scholar Merit Award applications. The awarding process will take place over the next few weeks during which selected candidates will be contacted.

The Committee expects to notify admitted applicants selected for other merit scholarship awards soon, likely during the week of February 22. All admitted applicants are automatically considered for available scholarships on the basis of their applications for admission.

Thanks. An acceptance to Vanderbilt would be huge for me. It's probably choice 1A behind UVA, and I think there's a strong chance I'll be there in the fall.

so far, has it been true that everyone with the same decision mailed date gets the same decision?

DM 2/12
163/3.7
non-urm
Interview

I don't know what to think, but realistically, it probably isn't good.

A URM on LSN got in with those exact stats, and several have been admitted with worse. Some of the other 2/12 DMs on here seem like they have "accept" numbers, so I wouldn't lose hope just yet.

As a non-URM it would seem a longshot for an acceptance. I hope that the 2/12 batch is filled with all acceptances. However, they do mix up batches sometimes.

Oh damn I thought poster was URM. Apparently I can't read for crap. Anyways, that changes what I said earlier, so disregard that utterly, but good luck.
