ED1 Deadline News and Notes

Posted by on Saturday, October 31, 2009 in Early Decision.

Happy Halloween!  For those of you applying for early decision round 1 you know that November 1st is the application deadline.  Here are a couple of quick reminders:

  • Yes we are aware that 11/1 falls on a Sunday, which means that the following business day will be the de facto deadline.  In this case, Monday November 2nd is the deadline.
  • It is a postmarked deadline for your application.  Not all of your materials need to be sent together, nor do they all have the be received by Monday.  Your application needs to be submitted on the Common App’s website or postmarked in the mail by Monday.
  • Remember that once you submit your common application online to Vanderbilt, your app for Vanderbilt is locked and cannot be changed.  Take your time and make sure everything is correct.  My advice – print the sucker out and proof it.  You read words on paper slower than you read on a computer screen.  Which is why someone once turned in an essay that mentioned that the applicant was “the writting editor for the school newspaper.”  Slow down there speedy.

Our officers are already off and reading applications this weekend, and we’re collectively excited to get off the road.  Good luck to everybody! 

P.S. Be sure to check out our Admissions website’s brand new look to be unveiled later this coming week!
