ED I Mailing Day
Well, the files have been read, second read, debated over, and decisioned, the letters printed, checked, double-checked, and today they leave our office. It was without a doubt the most competitive Early Decision year Vanderbilt’s ever seen.
A couple of important reminders:
1) As Christina has mentioned before, and as you can see in this picture, all of our ED responses come in small envelopes. Don’t freak when you see a skinny envelope.
2) We do not release admissions decisions over the internet. We’re a bit old school that way.
3) Vanderbilt rarely defers students from ED to regular. Why? Because we believe that students should get an up or down from us, and sooner rather than later. We believe that in the long run, it is better for students to know where they stand with us and be able to either make plans for coming to Nashville, or begin the process of moving on.
4) If you’re an ED applicant and don’t hear from us by the middle of next week, you can call us starting on Thursday (12/20) at 800.288-0432 and get your decision over the phone.
Good luck to everyone!
