What impressed you positively?

"The campus and facilities were very nice. The faculty, staff and students were extremely friendly. Everyone seemed content. Being from the south, I find Nashville to be a pleasant city to live in. I was surprised and delighted to see as many minority interviewees there (around 50%, 25% URM). But only a dozen or so students were in my group, so take those stats however you'd like. Finding out about the first year P/F and second year H/P/F grading system. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really had a pleasant experience at Vanderbilt. I enjoyed meeting everyone and taking the small tour. The interviewer was very friendly, but he constantly interrupted me. He'd ask a question, and about 15 seconds into each of my responses, he'd ask another question. It was a little frustrating, but i doubt it'll make much of a difference in the end. I'd really like to attend Vanderbilt. " Report Response
