It’s almost time. After days, weeks, and months spent talking with prospective students, reading impressive applications, and carefully deliberating over tough choices, we are almost ready to release admissions decisions for Early Decision I. This year there’s a new twist to our decision announcement: beginning on December 14, decisions for EDI applicants will be available online through MyAppVU. No more waiting for the mailman, no more hypothesizing about a “fat envelope,” no more worrying that your parents won’t wait for you to get home from school before opening the mail – on December 14, just log in to MyAppVU and find out your decision status (and if you’ve applied for it, any need-based financial aid award information).*
This year’s pool of EDI applicants was the largest, most academically qualified, most diverse, and most superlative-heavy group in Vanderbilt history. We will publish summary statistics after we complete both phases of Early Decision, so once we finish EDII, you can expect to hear more from us about this group and their amazing accomplishments. It’s safe to say that we are incredibly excited about the first members of the Vanderbilt Class of 2018.
The overall quality of the applicant pool also means that this was a highly competitive process. With such a strong pool, we were faced with very difficult decisions, and there were many talented applicants who we were not able to admit. These decisions are a tough part of the process, but they are reached after careful consideration and close study of the applicant pool.
We want to thank each and every student who applied through Early Decision I. The wait is almost over.
