Vanderbilt Wait List
« on: May 03, 2003, 04:08:40 AM »
Has anyone heard anything about the Vanderbilt wait list? I sent the admissions office an email asking about the time line and they refused to tell me anything.

You should have a decent chance.  Your GPA could hurt a little, because Vandy's numbers tend to be a bit higher, but that's nothing that couldn't be offset with a great personal statement and letters of recommendation.  I encourage you to apply.  Good luck!

youngchi---you should defenitely apply.  I got in w/ a 92 percentile and a 3.6.  After talking to other students, however, I seem to be towards the bottom end of the numbers...then again maybe the lower scoring people, just don't want to talk about it  ;)  so apply there, but apply early because it defenitely helps.  (I applied in early Novemer)

I got waitlisted at Vandy today.  3.53 GPA, 161 LSAT.  I know I'm pretty lucky.  I'm Chinese American, born and raised in SoCal, went to UC Irvine for undergrad, one year work experience as a paralegal, openly gay applicant.  I'm pretty sure I got in because of diversity.  Any advice as to how I can squirm my way in?  ;)

I got waitlisted at Vandy with a 162 and a 3.6 GPA. Damn them! Now I have to send deposits into Wake to keep my spot there.
