My Vandy Box had no scholarship offer or info.

Congrats! How were you contacted (via email, snail mail, etc.)? Also, does your LSAT range mean you took the test twice?

DM 2/17 and still haven't heard anything. I think it's safe to assume I wasn't admitted because that big box would have arrived. I guess I'm hoping for the best of the two remaining options.

Does anyone know if Vanderbilt matches scholarship offers, and if so, would BU/WUSTL be thought of a comparable schools that I could use to get money from Vandy?

I would say that those would be considered basically peer institutions for the purpose of asking for more money. Doesn't hurt to write them a letter and ask.

I might be in the same situation as you are in the next few weeks as well.

Just hoping these schools really do match money because Vanderbilt is one expensive school. Also, why don't they have an admitted students website?

Scholarship information should be rolling out en masse any time now since this is the last week in February.

Exactly. I don't want to fall in love with the school if I'm gonna have to pay sticker and maybe not go.

W/L letter received today; DR 2/17

Definitely a pleasant surprise as I was expecting a ding. Anyone have any experience with the waitlist? Is there a good shot of getting off it?

In. Found out from the Admitted Students Day email. The box still hasn't gotten to me (i'm abroad). It was mailed on 2/12.

IMO schools like UCLA/UT/G-town are more likely to be considered "peers" for Vandy.
