  1. I'm an out-of-field applicant and was very unsure of what to expect going into this process. I'm still in shock that I got into several great schools and have finally decided on attending Vanderbilt. However, I haven't formally accepted yet because I just found out that I won a Fulbright grant to teach English in Europe next year. All my professors assured me that if I won, I would be able to defer grad school for a year and do both. When I called Vanderbilt, this wasn't the case. So now I have to decide between going straight to school next year or going to Europe instead and reapplying next year. I don't want to risk it again with the 6% acceptance rate, but I also don't want to miss out on going to Europe again. I know it's a great problem to have, but I don't know what to do. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
  2. This week, I was accepted to Vanderbilt and Columbia Teachers College for speech-language pathology (My 2 top choices!!!) As an out-of-field applicant with no prereqs done, I'm incredibly grateful to be in this position, but I don't know how I'll ever decide between the two. I plan to visit both, but in the meantime, can anyone give me some insight on either of these programs? I'm interested in the bilingual opportunities at TC, but I know Vanderbilt is ranked much higher...any ideas why? Obviously NYC and Nashville couldn't be more different, both are expensive, and there really is no wrong choice here.
  3. So I just got in to Vanderbilt for an M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration. And by just got in I mean like 7 days ago...but anyway. Who else has?! Anyone else going to Visitation Day on the first weekend of February?
  4. Hi everyone. I apologize in advance if this is the incorrect place to post questions about school decisions, or if these types of posts are annoying in general. I am trying to decide between attending Vanderbilt, U. Memphis, or U. Maryland. I am pretty sure I want to work with stroke/TBI patients who have aphasia/dysphagia, so I think of myself as more interested in the "medical side" of SLP. I have been offered much more funding to Memphis and Maryland than to Vanderbilt, but it seems like Vanderbilt is one of the best for medically focused SLP training. Any advice? I would very much prefer not taking out loans, which I would have to do (to some extent) for Vanderbilt. Thanks for reading and for any insight.
  5. Has anyone had an interview or been accepted to Vanderbilt's Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in the Biomedical Sciences? If so, when did you apply, what are your stats, and when did you get your interview/acceptance? I turned in my application January 6th and have not heard back yet, so I'm getting worried. My Quantitative GRE scores and my undergrad GPA kind of sucked, but I did well in my verbal GRE and my graduate GPA is a 3.5. Thanks!
  6. I just saw on the results survey that someone was accepted via email to Vand for English PhD. I have absolutely no confidence that I will get in, but congrats to whoever it was that did! I will now sit in front of my inbox all day.
  7. So my significant other is a grad student at Vanderbilt, and I'm currently an adjunct at another college in town. Sometimes, I accompany her to the Vanderbilt library to grade papers, read, and whatnot. Something I've learned about the VU Central Library is that I'm almost always within an inch or two of cracking my head when I walk the main stacks and computer labs. Obviously, there are reading rooms with big, tall ceilings, but the stacks themselves seem to have really (really) low ceilings. I'm 6'2", which is tall-ish, but not superhuge, so I think it's sort of wild that their ceilings are so low! Have you experienced or heard of any similarly odd or surprising peccadilloes concerning potential grad programs?
