    Does anyone have any idea when this waitlist will start to move? Do we really have to wait until May or is there a chance that they will take people off anytime soon just like some of the other schools we have heard about on this board? I sent an email to the admissions director but no response yet...

    When I interviewed, the Director Pat Sagen said that the waitlist doesn't move for a while, until sometimes late summer. She specifically said if you want to go to Vandy, you should stay on the waitlist, and prob. expect to wait a long time.

    When I talked to three students, they said that almost 50% (if not a tad more) of their M1 class was from the waitlist.

    I interviewed at Vandy on November 27 and got the waitlist letter around January 10. I heard from a Vandy undergrad that being on the waitlist is good because of what vkrn said, that almost 50% come from waitlist. I just didn't know if I should expect the same thing this year or if AMCAS somehow messed that up. I already wrote Vandy a "top choice" letter and was hoping that maybe that would speed things up because I really don't want to have to wait until the summer to hear something. I have already gotten into some other places and I would really love to be able to plan my future early!
