Also in the DR 1/12 group. Thoughts? I'm thinking this could be the rejection/WL batch....doesn't look like acceptances based on LSN.

Personally I'm a 164/4.0 non-URM, Top Private (non-IVY)

Lot of reverse-splitters in this group...

I kind of like that so far this is a group of people who I've been with throughout the cycle. Nice to have some comrades.

Also DR 1/12. Complete 10/25 and interview 11/05, so it's been a good while. Not sure if that's because they were on the fence about me or just because they were waiting until around now to kickstart the rejection machine. I'm 1 for 7 so far this cycle (I only applied to reaches essentially), but Vandy will be the only reject that actually hurts since I went there for undergrad and am from Nashville, etc. Whatever my hopes, I have no pretensions of actually getting into Vandy given the current cycle, and I'd be psyched for a waitlist at this point, however unlikely that may end up being...Oh well. It is what it is.

:shock: :( OUCH. How could everyone else have just skipped over this?! Looks like people are looking at WLs and rejections until others start withdrawing.

Yes indeed, she took a short hiatus for my self-tar, but with decisions starting to roll out it felt necessary again. Sorry about the WL wired, I was really hoping you were in ... things do not look promising for the splitter crowd at Vandy this cycle.

It's just a form letter. I got WL'd last year and I think that same exact line was in the letter. I think they'll still be admitting those with the numbers to get in (or at least that's what I hope, lol).

I don't believe it. I finally have a decision rendered as of 1/12!

I'm a splitter with a pretty strong soft FWIW. Numbers would put me at a WL, but maybe I'll get lucky.

according to LSN, 30% of those waitlisted withdraw before a final decision is made and 10% of waitlisted are admitted.
