does anyone know how generous vandy is with need based aid? i was waitlisted and am debating whether it would be worth submitting the needaccess for the chance that i might get need based help if i get admitted eventually (since i doubt i'll get any scholly offers considering the wl). anybody know anything about this?

does anyone know if scholarships are still going out/in transit or have most people who anticipate receiving a scholy already gotten their letters in the mail?

Someone posted earlier that they called Vandy and there is a batch of scholarships in the mail as of Friday. So I imagine people will start to see them come in soon.

Edit:

Well, it says "reject" on law school predictor, but looking at LSN it may actually be a wait list. Guess I have to wait. Anyone else get DM 2/26 and want to compare numbers?

Also, for everyone who has gotten their Vandy decision and had a different address listed for current address and permanent address on their app, do you recall which address the mail came to?


I went DM 2/26. Complete 1/14. 172, 3.5x. My numbers would predict an admittance, but I didn't interview or write a Why Vandy, so it could be a WL.

Decision mailed 2/26. Complete 1/21. 169/3.4x ding-a-ling!!!

Congratulations!

I am 168/3.75, so this gives me hope. Anything close to that kind of money would lock up Vanderbilt for me.

Thanks! I did not interview, but I did answer those questions that I thought was the Law Scholars app. Looks like I got passed up for that, which was expected.

This makes my decision so much harder. Good problem to have though, I guess.

Vanderbilt hasn't been kind to splitters. I hope that you are the exception.

Snail mail at my parents' house. Got a call from my mom. I'd been on her to check the mail all morning since I saw that stuff got sent out on Friday.

Question about visits:

Does anyone feel like you miss out on anything if you go on a random weekend instead of one of the ASW's?

Are scholarships via mail or email?
