Law School Applications / Re: Accepted 08/09

In at Vandy this morning via big priority mail box, three days after status checker went "Decision Mailed". It's my first acceptance, so I'm very excited. 3.5/177 white male.

Nothing. If they're sending it priority mail, it must be late. Otherwise I just get to wait...

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Best Shot?

161 :(

4.0 (tier 1 undergrad)

Student Body President (tier 1 undergrad)

Very strong LORs

Not URM

What's my best shot?

What does Tier 1 mean? There's a very wide range within that group of schools, if you're referring to the US News rankings.

I'm so impatient, waiting for this box (hopefully) or thin rejection letter (God forbid). I want it to come NOW.

Georgetown Acceptance I just got ten minutes ago (came home for the night) Woooooo Hooooooooo No mention of aid but that will probably come along later  ;D

Email? Letter?

My status checker went to "decision mailed" this morning! Hoping it's an acceptance (I'm 3.5/177). Do you all know if it came in an envelope? I've heard it came in some large box. While I'm impressed by that on Vandy's part, that would only mean it takes longer to get to me.

yay mine just went decision mailed also!  this is the first decision i've known was coming and had to wait for...i'm glad i get to find out soon, but this kinda sucks, huh?  haha

Yeah, the waiting is terrible! It's made worse by the fact that they send a box, likely 5 to 7 day ground, too. Do you think that, this early, it's definitely an acceptance? I know that's a silly question I shouldn't be asking, but I can't help but ruminate over the possibility that I'm getting eliminated right from the get-go.

Actually... if I remember correctly, it was sent 1-2 days. I remember being like "Wow, Vandy spent a lot of money mailing this to me!"


That is very impressive. I hope I get it soon, too! Is there anything cool in the box besides the admissions letter? Like a hat or a car sticker or something? I know my undergrad sent a car window sticker with my letter and it worked wonders with me!

Hopefully I'm not in the first round of rejections!

There's a car sticker and a TON of great info


I'm still bitter about losing my "VLS" sticker. I'm pretty much the only 1L without  it. I don't like the "Vanderbilt Law" ones in the book store.

If you don't mind my asking, when did you apply and when did you hear?

How did they contact you? Is there an email that they send out?
