Does Vanderbilt typically send out interview invitations, or is the candidate expected to make their own appointment on the Owen website? I'd like to think that I would be invited for an interview, but I have not heard from Owen since submitting on January 9th.

Thank you for your interview report!


I received an email for an invite with a link to schedule an appointment.....I think I got the invite early since I am attending Discovery Weekend and will interview then.

Did you hear back about your interview? Normally the turnaround is quick for Vandy. I applied on the 6th and got my interview invite on the 10th.

Hi,

Yes, I heard back on the 18th after applying on the 9th.

Anyone have an idea what the acceptance rate is after interviewing? I'm American if that matters.

Hi Buck,

Owen's acceptance rate from past years is >40%. If you assume that they interview about 60-80% of all applicants, then we can conservatively say that, after interview, your odds of acceptance will be higher than 50%. In fact, your odds are probably sitting closer to 70%, depending on the selectivity of the admissions committee with regards to interview invites.

But, the above is just a by-the-numbers approach. Did your interview go well? Do your GPA and GMAT score fit within their median? Did your essays create a narrative that supports your overarching goal? All of these factors will be important.

Now, for the bright side: They invited you to interview! That means they clearly liked your profile, and believe that you would be a good fit! Best of luck as you look forward to March 8th!

Hello everyone,

Is there anyone else who is yet to receive an interview invite or a reject for Round 2 application?

I saw similar notifications for Darden and tepper. I don't know if they're valid, or potentially people logging late round 1 decisions without fixing the date. They could also be WL admits.

I expect to hear at the deadline.

The Owen admissions team at Discovery Weekend said under no circumstances are decisions release prior to deadline so I believe they are old posts from previous round. Goodluck

I was told that they've tried to trickle out decisions in years past and it did not go well for whatever reason, and that they would not release decisions prior to the date.

I'd say it's either old news or a false report.

I interviewed with the admin rep for the Northeast and he said that he will actually start calling applicants a few days before the decision release date to let them know they got in because he doesn't have time to call everyone on his list on the actual decision day.

As I said above, the Admin for the Northeast told me he starts calling people a few days before the decision date to let people know they got in so we could start hearing tomorrow.
