Take a deep breath, my friends, because you did it. You attended college fairs, you visited campuses, you signed up for mailing lists and received brochures, you wrote essays, submitted applications, met deadlines, received letters, compared offers, and made the decision. You are going to be a Commodore.
Good news: The hard part is over! Everything that comes next is far less stressful and nerve-wracking and far more celebratory and exhilarating. You have chosen your path, and next you get to find out where in this great world it will take you.
Sad news: Our role in your college selection process is transitioning. While we in the admissions office have truly enjoyed and cherished the months (and in some cases, years) spent working with the future members of the Class of 2018, it is time for you to work closely with many other offices and resources on campus that will help guide you through this summer and the next four years of your life.
We certainly do not want to leave you hanging, however, so we have compiled in this post a few of the “next steps” that you should be thinking about as you make the transition from admitted students to incoming Vanderbilt undergraduates.
Okay, that’s a lot of things to do, but you have plenty of time to get it all done. In the meantime, take a load off! Kick back by the pool with a pair of shades and your copy of the 2014 Commons Reading. Congratulations once again on your remarkable achievements, and make sure to stop by and see us when you arrive in the fall.
