What do you want to know?

Posted by on Thursday, March 31, 2011 in General Information, I've been admitted - now what?.

I had an amazing meeting with my student bloggers this past Tuesday.  A core part of our meeting included planning for April blog topics and we kept circling back to the same question, “What do our readers want to know?  What questions do they have?  What do they want us to write about?”  So today I extend that question to you.  The student bloggers here at OUA keep active in a diverse array of campus organizations, they represent a wide swath of majors, and they are from all over the United States.  Post some questions you want them to answer about academics, student life, or Nashville.  Here are a few of the bloggers who will be answering your questions….

    As readers of the Vandy blog, my wife and I have a few questions that you can best answer. How do you like Vanderbilt? Do you feel well prepared? Any struggles or regrets? How bad is the grade deflation that we have read about in college confidential?

    I don’t think the bloggers can answer this question, but I was accepted ED and was wondering when I should expect my Road to Vanderbilt and information on course registration packets to arrive in the mail.

    Hey! I have been wait listed to Vandy, and was wondering when the deadline is to officially select roommates. Do students accepted off the waitlist usually have to room together because the previously accepted students have already committed to a roommate? Thanks!

    Thanks for asking! I’ve been offered a wait-list position, which I immediately seized. While in college, I’d like to combine my business, culinary, and travel interests into a career. Does this sound like a good fit for Vanderbilt? Which majors/classes align best with my interests? Also, I’m very interested in studying abroad. More posts about the abroad program would be great!

    Thanks again,

    My question is for Seth – my daughter is an admitted performance major and I wondered how demanding you have found your AXLE requirements combined with your music studies and need for practice time, especially freshman year.

    This might seem like a stupid question but I’m wondering if the mattresses in the freshman dorms are comfortable? Do I need to buy a mattress cover, mattress topper, etc.?

    Karen: That’s a great question for our Inside ‘Dores team! I would guess they’re comfortable, but it never hurts to get a mattress topper for extra coziness. They’ll respond soon…

    Is there a good business program?

    I’d really like to see something about how Vanderbilt is recruiting Chinese students. This is the new frontier in true educational diversity, and I think as many parents in China should know about Vandy as do Harvard and MIT.
