I haven't heard much about people getting in through this program. Did anyone else get this letter yesterday?

    It isn't necessarily that you get in through this program. This program may let RD applicants know before the April notification date, as they invite you to attend the multicultural day in March. If you received a letter congratulations. Not everyone is invited, and if you do not get invited you still may be one of the lucky ones who get an admittance letter in April. Did you get an invite?

    Just got an invitation today and I'm so excited!!! Is it a likely letter? It seems a bit more assuring than a likely letter because it begins with "Congratulations! You have been admitted to the freshman class entering Vanderbilt University in the fall of 2013."

    Urstruly. You are in. Congrats.

    I got one today! Does anyone else have experience with the weekend/know what the purpose is?
  • programmer1812programmer1812 Posts: 36Registered User Junior Member
    @Jambajo12 Yes I did get the invite. Sounds pretty cool. @nufinin it seems that the purpose is to both increase the diversity of Vanderbilt and to reach out to students quickly who might otherwise attend another university. People who get into Vanderbilt have a powerful likelihood of getting into another top university, so Vanderbilt has its admit weekend 1 month before most other schools to attempt to have these students decide upon Vanderbilt over another university.

    Does it have any bearing on merit scholarships (CV, Ingram, etc.)?

    Sorry for all my questions. I just knew nothing about this program until today.
  • programmer1812programmer1812 Posts: 36Registered User Junior Member
    It does not. It's just a regular acceptance but slightly earlier so that MOSAIC weekend can be early.

    Sent from my SCH-I535 using CC

    Got mine today!!

    Twin Ds received letters today. Very nice surprise! Will likely attend the weekend and hope for good news from CV scholarship. Great idea to get these kids on campus before regular decisions come from other schools.

    I've been accepted into a college. It feels so great to be wanted.
  • CollegeHopeful07CollegeHopeful07 Posts: 9Registered User New Member
    If I didn't receive one today is there any chance I'll get one tomorrow? Pretty disappointed right now, I really like Vandy
  • PhilovitistPhilovitist Posts: 2,737Registered User Senior Member
    When this thread popped up, I was a little depressed that I hadn't been invited yet, but it's made very clear that not being processed through MOSAIC doesn't mean you're getting rejected.

    I'm not sure how they decide who to invite for these things, but I bet it includes a lot more arbitrary factors than those they use for admission. It sucks that you have to wait a little longer for a decision, but you didn't expect one yet in the first place.

    Just relax.
