    Have offers been made to students on the waiting list?
    Will you be writing an article, as in previous years, announcing that offers have been made to people on the wait list?

    Thanks for your question. No article this year, but I can tell you that we have begun to make offers to students on the waitlist. When the class fills, we will notify all students who remain on the waitlist via email.

    Could you tell me when the first offers went out?
    I am trying to gauge my chance of getting in… I’m pretty sure I won’t be selected even though I’ve shown plenty of interest.
    Quite depressing to be honest

    We know it can be difficult to wait on news of a decision. Unfortunately, I can’t give you any indication of the likelihood of your admission at this point. We continue to fill the class, and as spaces are available we will go to the waitlist to fill the class with qualified students.

    Does what major you declared on CommonApp when applying make a difference in getting selected off the wait list.
    Do popular majors such as Economics or Biology negatively impact the selection?

    I’m trying to figure out (mentally) what I did wrong with my application.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Thanks for the question. School fit is a component in our general selection process. We want to make sure that a student is a good match for what he or she intends to study. When it comes to the waitlist, we are looking to fill the class based on where we still have need after regular decision.

    The fact that you were offered a place on the waitlist means we think you would be a successful student at VU. It means your application was very strong. However, the nature of our applicant pool is that we are not able to admit all of the qualified students who apply.

    Are we notified by email if we are admitted from the waitlist? Or online? Can you estimate how many spots are still available? Super stressed over here too…

    I know it can be stressful to wait … thanks for hanging in there. If you are offered a place on in the Class of 2020, you will be notified via email. You’ll then use your MyAppVU portal to respond to the offer. I can’t give you an estimate of the number of offers we will make. Once it closes, we will notify via email all applicants who remain on the waitlist.

    It’s probably pointless to ask. But, before I do, I’m going to say I gave up hoping the last time i asked a question here.

    And previously, you’re response didn’t answer whether the declared major plays a role in being offered a seat.

    Why exactly can’t you comment on individual status as most are rejections anyway.

    I’m sorry that my response to your previous question was not complete.

    As is true throughout the admissions cycle, we evaluate candidates in a holistic fashion, taking into consideration their fit for the Vanderbilt school to which they’ve applied. We admit to specific major for the Blair School of Music and for the Peabody College of Education and Human Development. We do not admit to specific major for the College of Arts and Science or for the School of Engineering—so for these two schools, the choice of major indicated on the Common Application would be considered only in a contextual fashion. I hope this adds clarity.

    In regard to commenting on individual status, the best way to inquire about your individual case is to contact your Vanderbilt admissions officer.
