2010 Waitlist Information
I know that being on a waitlist isn’t ideal, and after all of this time applying to college you probably are not that psyched about more waiting. We will do all that we can to keep you informed here on this blog. For those of you who have been offered a space on the waitlist I wanted to draw your attention to a post we made last year that addresses many of the questions and concerns you may have (and that I see in your posted comments).
Here’s a couple of highlights:
1) With the exception of merit scholarships, which have already been offered, you are still able to receive financial aid if you are admitted from our waitlist. Likewise, you will be just as able to register for classes, get housing in the Commons, etc., if you are admitted from the waitlist.
2) If you intend to accept a spot on our waitlist, make sure that the email address you provide on the Waitlist acceptance form is one you check often, and is one in which you have listed firstname.lastname@example.org as a safe email sender. It would stink for us to be trying to get in touch with you and it get snared in your spam filter.
3) We will again be reaching out to waitlisted students to check on their interest in Vanderbilt by way of a simple web form. Make sure to fill that out when we ask you to.
In terms of statistics: just like during ED and Regular, it is our practice not to discuss admissions statistics until a decision cycle completes (once decisions have been rendered). However, you can access information on our waitlist (including how many admits we made, etc) from last year’s admission cycle in the Vanderbilt 2009-10 Common Data Set.
