    I was a little hesitant about the south as well but it didn't really feel like "deep south" to me and I really loved the school. Where do you plan on going instead?

    If we interviewed before mid-November and we don't hear from them by the end of this week, do you think it means we've been waitlisted?

    Not necessarily, they said your could be accepted in February still if you don't hear in December on my interview day. I think they keep comparing us to new applicants

    If you didn't get a merit scholarship at the time of the call, I don't think it will be offered to you unless you get accepted into a competing med school that is ranked higher than Vanderbilt.There is still need aid though, and that offer will be revealed in the spring. I didn't get a merit scholarship either, but I was lucky enough to receive some need based aid. This brought the COA for Vanderbilt closer to my other acceptance, which was an instate public school.

    Congrats to everyone who got an acceptance!

    I asked the admissions office about this wave of acceptances because I have a buddy from undergrad applying this cycle who interviewed in October but didn't get an update this week. They told me that all of the December admission offers and scholarship awards have been made, and these folks will be getting an email and have their portal status updated in early January after the admissions office reopens. They also told me that everyone who's status says "under review" is still under consideration for the late Feb offers.

    Thank you so much for the info! Really appreciate it. Do you think it's plausible that people who interviewed earlier but didn't hear anything in December could still receive merit aid if offered acceptance in February?

    Any advice on how to negotiate scholarship offers? I was accepted this past week and am very grateful, but will likely not be able to attend without some financial aid.

    I've been accepted to a top 10 school that is significantly cheaper for me, but I really think Vanderbilt has the best curriculum of any school I interviewed at and would love to pursue my medical education there if the financials work out.

    I sent an update on December 18th and they said they would review it and consider it. I don't think we are totally out of luck yet!

    Is Vanderbilt receptive to post interview thank you cards? I know some schools discourage them. Thanks!

    They are definitely receptive! But does anyone recall what that sheet of paper they gave us after the interview said in regard to where to send them? To the admissions email or individual interviewers? (I misplaced my paper in the chaos of the holidays...)

    I e-mailed yesterday to ask about acceptance e-mail and portal. They told me they won't be sending those out until they're back in office next week.

    does vanderbilt accept pre-II letters of interest?! I’ve interviewed at a dozen other schools & been accepted to several fantastic programs. However, I still can’t help but wish for just an II from here!!

    is their last interview date still january 28th or are they having others?
     

  32. A lot of schools say that but I highly doubt that that is true. Technically, schools can be “giving” interview until Jan 28th or whenever their cycle ends but in reality all interviews have been giving out. In other words, don’t get your hopes up.

    Rejected Pre-II, complete August. If they weren’t gonna give me an II it would’ve been nice to know sooner! Was on the hook for like 5 months with no communication. Good luck to everyone else!

    Anyone have experience with student hosting here? I submitted a request through their website a while ago but never received a confirmation email, or heard back either affirmatively or negatively.

    I emailed them multiple times and never heard back until maybe 3 days before, when they told me the students had an exam and wouldn't be able to host. they weren't super helpful tbh
