I'm not sure what to put here - ISep 09 2015Other
I'm not sure what to put here - I am a transfer and had a 3.8 getting in, along with a very impressive resume. It's hard to get in, but worth it.

Vanderbilt likes students who are successful in and outJul 21 2015Geography and Geosciences
Vanderbilt likes students who are successful in and out of the classroom. If you have good extracurriculars and are a leader in some facet, then you have a high chance of getting in. My ACT score was not that high (29), but I was a part of several extracurriculars and I was a leader in two of them. Lastly, showing interest, such as talking with your admissions officer helps.
ACT: 29 Female
