Does it mean anything when a firm you've applied to asks for a transcript, or has my desperation driven me nuts?
I've heard from an attorney who used to do interviewing that sometimes the recruiting administrator simply needs all materials required by the firm before the candidate is considered, regardless of his qualifications.
Then again, they might be interested.

You'll be in a huge amount of debt at Vandy, and WUSTL should keep open just about as many doors. I would choose WUSTL without a second thought unless Vandy comes through with money (ask them).
If your numbers are good enough to get significant scholarships at T14s, and you think a JD may further your career, I would recommend going -- particularly so since I assume you won't be losing a lot of money by not working, since you aren't presently working in a lucrative field.
I, for one, am enjoying law school and am very glad I made the choice to go. I did not want to find myself regretting not going 10 years down the road, when it would be much more difficult to go due to increased responsibilities.

Most of the big firms that are interested in me have (unfortunately) asked me for my undergraduate transcript. If they see that C on your last semester, they may not like it.

is a scholarship interview anything more than meeting with an adcomm to talk? if so, you better dress up. otherwise... at one particular school I toured, I wore jeans and an untucked button-down shirt. they still gave me a scholarship increase. i don't think the adcomms care too much what you wear. the other prospectives might.
