Believe it or not, it is already mid-summer and time to start thinking about filling out your college applications. Over the next week, we are mailing Part I: The Vanderbilt Common Application Supplement to rising seniors. If you are reading this and are not already receiving mail from us, you can sign up for our mailing list here: http://admissions.vanderbilt.edu/forms/mailing-list.php
It's true, Vanderbilt's applications have grown (+73% in five years). A natural reaction is to try and find someway to stand out in the crowd. But for us, at the heart of the holistic review is an understanding of you - your past accomplishments, what you care about, and drives your curiosities. In each of these things - simplicity is a supreme virtue.
All is still quiet on the waitlist front, and I have no news there. The waitlist is still open and active. We have officially closed all transfer admissions however for the Fall. Today we'll be sending out the following email to all rising seniors on our mailing list announcing start of a new admissions cycle.
