I am looking to apply ED to Vanderbilt this upcoming fall (class of 2017)
In my opinion, my grades / GPA are well above average. I have great ECs, a job and volunteer experience. My ACT (31) is on the lower side for Vandy (but I'm hoping to raise it - I still have a while to do so). Aside from this, would it at all be beneficial to my chances that I am first-generation American? Both my parents were born in Russia and immigrated here. My first language was Russian, and I am still fluent in Russian today. Could this "help" me get in?
