  1. Sorry I didn't mean to down vote your post. I was just scrolling through the forum on my phone and accidentally swiped over the down arrow and there's no way to undo it.
  2. So sad to hear about the events in Boston today. I am confused and wonder why people are so evil. My thoughts and prayers are with those impacted by this senseless tragedy.

      I am also confused and wonder why people could be so evil. But I am thankful not everyone is that way, and there are those, like Pears suggests, who are thoughtful and compassionate. These actions, despite such awful, stomach-turning tragedy, are nothing short of amazing.

  3. Welcome! From what I understand, most people applying to education graduate programs don't have an undergraduate background in education and thus don't really have letters of recommendation from undergraduate professors in the field of education. I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to have strong letters from these people, but having a strong letter from someone who can speak to your academic and research skills regardless of the discipline (probably some caveats here) is what matters.

      Thanks! I'm really looking forward to the change in scenery.

  7. Even though I have already accepted an offer to another program, I decided to give Vanderbilt a call recently because I had not heard anything at all about my application (I am ready to wrap this process up). I was told that two rounds of rejections have already gone out and that one or two rounds of acceptances have gone out (I can't recall if the person in admissions said one or two). The admissions officer told me this means I am in a "holding pattern". The accepted applicants have until April 15th to accept or reject their offer and if necessary the committee will reconvene after April 15t

      Congrats! I do remember going just a little crazy in one of my visit's bookstores!

  11. So excited for my upcoming Admitted Students Day! Looking forward to being on campus, learning more information, and meeting my cohort.

  12. I always wonder how trustworthy their rankings are. I just have so many questions....Who do they survey? What is their sample size? Is the sample representative? What types of questions are they asking survey respondents? Anyone have any insight as to how they come up with these ratings?
