Vandy Admission Question

Postby doublefocus4 » Thu Mar 03, 2011 7:46 pm

I've got five emails from Vandy today inviting me to attend their admitted students program. However, I have not gotten any email from them with an admission decision yet. I checked my application status on their website and it says the decision was made on Feb 21 but I haven't received it. I was wondering if it would me safe for me to assume that I've been accepted? I know the obvious answer is that I call the admissions office and ask but it's past office hours now and I'm not too good at waiting.

I think the consensus from the Vanderbilt application thread is that acceptances are delivered overnight via Fed Ex, so if a decision was rendered on 2/21 and you haven't heard anything, it's not a good sign. The ASW email would be pretty embarrassing for them if they rejected you though, so you shouldn't abandon hope. At a minimum, check your application to ensure your address is accurate. If you call though, they won't give you a decision over the phone. They have no way to verify it's you. Either way, good luck.

Thanks for the response. I'm out of the US at the moment and my mailing address is non-domestic, so I'm hoping that's the reason for the delay. In any case, I was expecting to get a decision by email at least. That's how it's been with the other schools I applied to.

I would assume so. I can't remember any schools sending out e-mails to students about ASW who have not been accepted.

I got emails from Vanderbilt for about 3 days prior to my acceptance package coming, all about ASW and related things
