  • Nov-07-2016 I am a current student here

    Apply for financial aid and scholarships-- Vanderbilt is very generous in this area and even offers several full-merit scholarships Keep an open-mind-- even though Vanderbilt is known for being a traditional school in the South and well as having a large Greek population, there are many students on campus who don't fit the stereotype

    I am unsure of this because I am one, but I figure my best advice would be to push yourself to stand out and get involved with clubs and other extracurricular activities as well.

    Definitely at least apply here, even if you think it will be too expensive. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to afford it here, but Vanderbilt has given me extremely generous financial aid.

    Look around town! I live outside of Nashville and am convinced it's one of the best places in the world to live and study.
