Nope. I have no idea what my need-based loans will be. And I kind of need to know soon.

I got a scholarship letter a couple weeks ago that had an amount and a line about how it was based on both merit and need. Don't remember if more stuff came with it (loan info and etc)... feel like it did, but can check in a few hours and report back.

tcr. I've been told need based aid amounts are included in the initial scholarship offer. The only info left to be sent out is loan amounts.

My scholarship indicated that it was for merit and need based aid. However, like everyone else, I'm still waiting for loan information.

Just got that Vandy email about profs/the receptions. It's cool that tuition won't go up much over the next year, but is anyone else bummed that there's no alumni reception in DC. Illinois, Michigan, and even Wash freakin' U have alum receptions in DC. Why can't Vandy put something together near me? :( Hope that doesn't say something about the network here.

Sorry about your wait list...it's better than a rejection! What state are you in? I still haven't gotten anything

Wow, I'm surprised about the 3/16 WLs, I thought you guys had great numbers and would probably be in. Not sure how to feel now... guess I'm glad I still haven't had a decision but my numbers don't feel good anymore. C'mon Vandy :(

If you had an alumni interview the first time around and were waitlisted, is it wise to make a trip to Nashville to interview with an adcomm if you truly desire to get off the waitlist? Or is that superfluous?
