I'm in California. I don't remember exactly when I got it, but it was at least 4-5 days after the DM date.

I must say the package is impressive. I wish more schools were this informative.


Same situation as me. Congrats.

Sounds like from the email it is "likely" next week, please please let that be true. Although I guess if you get one of the big deal ones it may be a bit later. $$ would really encourage me to pick Vandy and end the suffering :D

This is directly from the email from Vandy:

"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.

Consideration for need-based scholarships is concurrent with consideration for other scholarships. For priority consideration, please submit FAFSA and Need-Access forms by February 15."

Lol I hope they send it soon. I just got in today and I was itching to write the $500 check to hold my seat. I still can't believe I got in.

The career services booklet is really, really, really well done. Very open and informative. There's minimal amounts of cheerleading, it's really got a ton of useful and productive information. Just starting the obiter dictum, but that looks great as well.

I wish every school had an obiter. It made my visit sooo much easier - I knew where to eat, where to stay, where to look for potential housing, etc.

Nashville was beautiful - touristy, but in a fun way. I definitely couldn't see being bored there, with all the music venues and sports teams. Plus everyone was INSANELY friendly, especially the drivers. Not sold on the neighborhood right around the law school (parts are run-down, and other parts are chain fast food - nothing wrong with that, just not my thing), but the city itself was great.
