Just wondering... How important is the interview? I had one, and while I don't think it went bad, I don't think it went wonderful either. I left it with an "okay, then..." type of feeling. I'm at about median for both numbers.

Hopefully not very, as I am not doing one.

There've been people in this thread who got in right after their interviews, so good ones can seemingly help. The guy I interviewed with said it at the least shows you have a real interest in the school which is a plus.

I got complete on 11/20/2009. I have heard nothing ever since. What does it mean?

Complete since 10/30 with tons of people hearing back who went complete later than I did. Mostly likely looking at a WL/rejection. Pretty mehhh about the whole thing.

I've been complete since 11/19. So, hopefully, if all is right with the world, it means I find out a day before you. :-P

Complete since 11/10. Maybe they were waiting for my December LSAT, but I doubt it - from LSN and other profiles here it's clear that Vanderbilt likes to take it's time. But anyway, I knew my chances were slim no matter how good the interview went. The only thing that'll piss me off is if I'm waitlisted. I might start pulling my hair out if they ask me to wait even longer after letting my application sit for two months...I think I'll send a preemptive LOCI.

visited recently, classes weren't in session but the law school and the larger campus were awesome. my camera was dead so i can't post pictures, sorry. i can say that i was shown several classrooms & they were all very nice, and there were several different study areas around the law building with different vibes depending on study style. there was a line of restaurants(panera and some others)/starbucks across the street from the law school, very convenient if you wanna get off of campus for eating or studying. the rec center is big and has a decent amount of equipment. there is a climbing wall, a pool, an indoor track, several racquetball & basketball courts etc. it's a trek across campus from the law school, but there's also a shuttle from the parking lot outside of the gym (meant for people that work at the med center it seemed) to the med center that is just a few buildings away from the ls & right near to a popular area (hillsboro village, i think it was called) for food, shopping, and housing. the bookstore is two levels, pretty small law book section from what i could tell. a variety of campus eateries were housed in the same building. (this building was a few minute walk from the ls.) speaking of food, the law school has an eatery as well as a kitchen area equipped with a microwave and a few fridges for people that want to bring food to campus. ummm... what else? i can't really think of anything else at the moment, but if you have any questions that you think i can answer do ask!

Looks like I win (for the loss). Went complete 10/27, no word since. Didn't interview, but that's because it is simply impossible for me to this semester. In any case, I thought I stood a decent chance at admission, but a little worried at this point...

LSAT at median, GPA slightly under median.

Thanks! That was pretty useful, since I'm abroad so I can't visit.

I just got the GIANT admit packet from Vandy (which wasn't really at the top of my list before) and it just seems like a really nice place. It's also encouraging that they care about their admitted students enough to send them a ton of genuinely useful material (like a magazine about Nashville, the Obiter Dictum/ binder of law school life and the Vandy area which I'm seriously excited about reading through, and a faculty viewbook).

Also, my UG pre-law advisor said that Vandy was the only place she's heard of her former students being genuinely happy... but also that tons of full-ride acceptees still turn it down to go to Harvard. Good thing I won't have that choice :)

9/18. Though you can keep the actual trophy, as looking at it might make me too sad.

Complete 12/9, decision mailed 1/5. (!!)

Anyone know if the decision is mailed to your current or permanent address?

I'm pretty sure they havent sent any rejections yet, right? So any mail at this point is likely an accept.

Until they send the first rejection. :)
