One of our main objectives with the Admissions Blog is to give you an inside look at the Vanderbilt undergraduate admissions process. So, in the spirit of drawing back the curtain, I’d like to introduce you to MyAppVU, our new online application management tool.
With applications rolling in, I’m excited to learn more about the upcoming selection process. So I asked some of my colleagues about the philosophy of positive advocacy, the idea that admissions counselors open each application looking for the reasons to admit students rather than reasons to deny them.
