I definitely disagree. I went to Vandy Undergrad so I know Nashville pretty well. I did have a car the last two years. but it isn't hard to find housing right around campus. Such as 20 and Grand or Wesley Place.
of course it is ideal to have a car but you will be able to survive for sure without one. plus the public bus goes to the mall. And with most other people having cars when you need to go food shopping you could easily get a ride.


+1


Agree with that. I assumed they meant independently - I don't get rides from other people unless I'm bleeding lol

I just asked this in the ASW thread, but I'm about to leave for the school; so does anyone know if there is a dress code for the reception tonight?

Given that they're turning us loose like an half hour later, I doubt it. Little late to be asking, huh? :lol:

to those heading to bar review tonight at billiards, just be aware that you may find yourselves at lonnie's doing karaoke latenight. billiards is fun but it closes at 2 and people will likely wander off elsewhere before close. I strongly recommend the Stage if you're looking for a more nashvillian bar afterwards, though keep in mind dancing with your future classmates is strongly encouraged. also, i will be monitoring the alcohol consumption tomorrow at Colloquy's trivia blackacre since (my buddy is running it and put in a favor request), so please enjoy the high-end brews we'll be serving responsibly. also, please laugh at his bad jokes so he doesn't feel bad.

otherwise, hope your hosts all treat you right. this is by far the more entertaining admitted students' weekend for us, since finals are a month away and we'll all for the most part be out at some point.

I went complete 2/18. How long did it take others to get a decision after going complete? Do you think I have any chance of getting in with 167/3.7 plus masters degree and 7 years WE?

Just got the fin aid material. Small blurb saying how scholarship offers are not negotiable.

I just scheduled a visit for a week from today! I'm not sure who I talked to, but she was very friendly. I'll be sitting in on a Regulatory State class. Looking forward to it.

In the Obiter Dictum I saw a small blurb about an admitted students message board, but haven't found such a thing in anything I've received from the law school. Was this something they accidentally left in there from past editions or is the school hiding this from me?

Does Vandy make decisions in batches by dates?

Moderately. They waitlisted me, and my numbers (4.0/158) are typically auto-reject for a non-URM. I had a fantastic interview, and I do think they read the interviewer's report carefully.

Awesome. We have about equal numbers, I'm 160/4.0 and URM so the fact you were WLd gives me some hope. When did you go complete?

I went complete 10/26 and DR 1/12. Received letter in the mail 1/16. Their admissions office is very friendly, and I've called a few times to reiterate interest-- and they note it on my account. As of now the only other waitlist I'm truly considering is UVA (would be a miracle). Where does Vandy fall on your list?

It's number 4/5. I wasn't even going to apply there due to lack of money for application fees, but they called and offerred me fee waiver, so I did. Unfortunately though, they only offerred that to me at the beginning of March so I didn't go complete until 3/4 . . . that makes me very nervous, but we'll see how things turn out. I'm hoping my URM, GPA and softs work in my favor...cause my LSAT was a freaking joke.

Hey now, I'd love to have your 160! Due to the timing, you may be Waitlisted, but you have fantastic chances of ultimate admission I'd say! Is Vandy before or after WUSTL on your list?

I'm a native of Missouri, so WashU comes first . . . just because I hope to practice law in MO, however getting into Vandy would be a dream!

Just got my financial aid award summary in the mail. Ahh, with that scholly, Vandy's fin aid statement is A LOT less scary than Michigan's sticker shock.

I can't wait to visit Vandy in a couple of weeks. I hope that my visit there will make my decision easy one way or the other.
