The College Essay . Vanderbilt University Undergraduate Admissions.

Vanderbilt uses a holistic admissions process – we do not employ cutoffs for standardized testing or grade point averages. In our review process, we evaluate students’ academic records, looking for students who have performed well within the context of their high school’s most challenging academic programs. We evaluate activities outside the classroom in terms of depth of involvement, roles and responsibilities, and leadership. We also evaluate applicants’ writing through the application essay and short answer. Finally, we consider letters of recommendation – these often offer the admissions committee context about the applicant, both in the classroom and in the wider community.
