Our Early Decision II letters left OUA this afternoon! ED II applicants will likely receive admission decisions in the mail early next week. Students who do not receive their letters by February 18th may call our office to receive the admissions decision, but we will not release decisions over the phone prior to that date.

Moreover, our Early Decision applicants presented extraordinary academic and personal accomplishments. We report admissions statistics for Early Decision I and II combined; at the conclusion of Early Decision, here is a first glimpse of our incoming Class of 2015:

Regular Decision Application Update
As of today we have 24,730 applications for first-time freshman admission.

We are fortunate enough to select our Class of 2015 from a diverse pool of students who are both academically strong and socially engaged. As with previous years, we will have an incoming class of approximately 1,600 students who make their first-year home in The Commons at Vanderbilt University. Regular Decision students will receive admission decision letters on or around April 1, 2011.
We are excited to welcome admitted Early Decision II students to the Commodore community!
