I know what you might be thinking—you and millions of others… Can it happen? Here’s how Vanderbilt has already helped to prepare its first-year students for the already daunting process of med school applications.
Last semester, I applied for the Peabody Scholars program. I pushed myself all semester to qualify for the GPA of 3.6 or above, and I wrote a brief essay of application. In December I was thrilled to be accepted, along with 14 other students in the Peabody College of Education and Human Development. What is...
This semester has been an awesome example of how Vanderbilt keeps its students in touch with up-to-date professionals in their field, particularly in the arts! Everyone knows about Vanderbilt's contributions to football and academics, but hardly anyone knows about its awesome theatre department!
