Wanted to attend, but did go to Vanderbilt for undergrad and loved every second of it so much so to already desire a second Vandy education at the Owen School! 8-)



Discover Weekend was great! The owen culture and community really showed through in the presentations and with the students/staff there. FV113, are you matriculating to Owen?

Here's my theory, regarding the GMAT score condition: Vanderbilt was supposed to release the decision by the deadline March 8th. Just then the ranking went down by 5 places (source US News ranking). They must have made a last minute decision to not release admission decisions for some of the applications with GMAT scores that might keep Vanderbilt's average down. Not that I blame them but it was hard to understand why there was no communication by the decision deadline. Thoughts?


I think that's reading too far into it. If I am not mistaken, the rankings are based on the class of 2014, which I understand to be a pretty competitive class. It was commucated to me that this years applicants are also highly competitive. I can't image that they do not have enough applicants with high enough scores that they cannot balance it all out to their target. I would just give them and ask for them to clarify.

Just to clarify; I'm not begrudging Vanderbilt's conditional offer. It's the fact that it wasn't presented professionally or by the admissions release deadline on March 8th. They could have easily denied or waitlisted me, but did extend this conditional offer, which is great. However, I just feel like this was presented awkwardly. Why wait for a week? Just let me know if there is an issue.

Believe me, I know the feeling. Luckily for me, I'm only a few hours down the road, so it's not too hard on my schedule (can't say the same about my gas tank though).

How was it? I'm attending and doing my interview during that period. I love VUMC and Nashville, but am interested to learn more about Owen. I really like that it's all graduate students, not to sound like a snob. :lol:
