    They're also promising a decision within 21 days. My son has received several of these from different schools. One school actually indicated that they would accept him. My daughter, who's now a college sophmore never received any and there isn't much difference between the two of them academically. Is this something new or have schools been doing this for a while?

    My son just applied vi the VIP. As a parent, you gotta love the no fee. But the app. seemed much easier. Only 1 rec. needed and the essay could be a paper done in school.

    how do they choose who gets the VIP app?
    i would like to apply there, and i think my scores are appropriate for a VIP app (i was offered free application to a few other school, but i really would love to apply to vermont)

    That's a good question. I have no idea how he got the UVM VIP app. or any of the other apps. waivers on line.

    i sent in my VIP app and i just got my desicion back today. accepted!
    i talked to a rep at a college fair, and he said that it gives you an advantage if you apply with the VIP app. i got my acceptance back really quickly too, about 2 weeks after i applied.

    Applied 10/21 and still waiting. Anyone else get a decision?
  • Chelsea0011Chelsea0011 Posts: 210Registered User Junior Member
    Decisions are being sent and you should hear before Thanksgiving break. I think it is 21 business days from the time you get listed as application complete.

    i called today and got my pin but now i cant figure out if im in or not? i dont know what to do... help?

    You need to go the "I've submitted my application. Now what do I do" section on the admissions page. Input your pin and check your status.

    update: I went onto the UVM website, and for students who are interested in the VIP app, there is an email to which you should send your mailing address, email address and standardized test scores. If the person (or computer, I really dont know) sees fit, you will receive a VIP very shortly.

    I applied through the VIP mid october (after doing the above), and received my decision this week. A few days later, I was accepted to the honors college. I received my decisions by snail mail.
