Early Action/VIP

<p>In the VIP thread, some have reported that their early action application was "converted" to a VIP, and that they heard of an acceptance prior to the December 15 notification date. Has anyone else heard since applying close to the Early Action deadline of Nov. 1?</p>

<p>My application was complete right at the November 1 deadline and I was automatically listed as a VIP. My status was changed to Admit today so it should be soon for you too! Especially since I know that my transcript, recommendations and test scores didn’t arrive until November 7.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>At my daughter’s high school, at least 4 students have already received acceptance letters, most of which arrived this past weekend, dated November 9th.</p>

<p>for VIP do you need to send in 1st quarter grades? i think for Early Action you do but idk about VIP.</p>

<p>I was a VIP candidate for UVM and was accepted this morning. I am in the Undeclared department. I believe the only admissions decisions coming out before December 15 are VIP. Does anyone know how one is chosen for VIP though?</p>

<p>VIP stands for Vermont in Person, I believe if you visited the school then you are a VIP and get rolling admission. It is so expensive to visit schools, they earned brownie points from me for waiving the fee and doing rolling admissions for those that visited. Of the 7 schools my son applied to, I as a parent, am most pleased with the University of Vermont’s Admissions Department. They have an excellent system. Excellent email communication from start (tour) to finish (admit), easy system to check application status, and they make you feel special. I was impressed.</p>

<p>My daughter visited the school and her application was classified as VIP. She was accepted (engineering - honors). My niece did not visit the school, her application was classified as VIP and she was accepted also (nursing). Not sure if either one of them will attend though.</p>

<p>I don’t know if you are right Bonacspud because I did not visit UVM and I was listed as a VIP applicant. Do you think there are any requirements for being VIP or is it just random?</p>

<p>My daughter’s status for engineering has changed to Admit for VIP application.
This is her first acceptance, so we are excited.
Do you hear about honors college in a letter?
We’ve never visited the school. She is OOS, which is quite expensive.</p>

<p>Congrats to your daughter! Honors College does come in a separate letter - at least it did for my D…a couple of weeks after the acceptance letter.</p>
