Class of 2020 – Regular Decision Summary Statistics
Earlier this week we released admission decisions for Regular Decision applicants to the class of 2020. By now, admit packets are on their way to new ‘Dores across the country and around the world. The admits to the Class of 2020 are an incredibly accomplished, amazingly diverse, and hugely talented group, and we can’t wait to see what they will do as a part of the Vanderbilt community.
To our new Commodores, we say “Congratulations!” We’re excited to welcome you to Vanderbilt, and we look forward to seeing you at upcoming Anchor Days or other on-campus visits for admitted students, as well as at Vanderbilt and You receptions across the globe. We also invite you to join the Official Class of 2020 Facebook group for admitted students where you can connect with other new ‘Dores and current students. And don’t forget to share your news on social media with the hashtag #vu2020 – the responses we’ve seen so far are amazing!
