Hey everyone! I haven't been able to find a Vandy class of 2023 discussion so I figured I'd start one! Please let me know if a thread has already been made for EDI applicants or if you're going to be applying to VU this year :)

    Hi everyone! I am a current Vandy freshman (class of 2022) majoring in Secondary Ed and English. I completely sympathize with all of you as you begin your college application journey. Don't hesitate to PM me if you have any questions and/or need advice on something! Also, if you plan on visiting campus in the next few months, I strongly encourage the Dore for a Day program. I'm one of the ambassadors on Tuesdays, so you should definitely stop by!

    Awesome! I have similar stats. What kinds of things have you been talking to your admissions counselor about, if you don't mind me asking?

    How's everyone writing the Vandy supplement?
  • yjliuyjliu Registered User Posts: 84 Junior Member
    Guys I don't have any SAT subject test scores and am pretty anxious now... I registered for Math2 in October but don't think I am prepared. Should I take it in November? I'll def get a better score but I don't know if Vandy will accept it. It said "Oct 6th - preferred last day to take the SAT reasoning" and didn't mention any sat2 tests. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!
  • pct3pct3 Registered User Posts: 152 Junior Member
    I don’t think SAT subject tests are required.
  • yjliuyjliu Registered User Posts: 84 Junior Member
    Yeah but since I'm not submitting any AP scores, I feel like sat subject tests will better my chances.
  • hars5678hars5678 Registered User Posts: 16 Junior Member
    @yjliu AP scores and subject tests are not required but idk if Vandy will accept your November subject scores. personally, I would take the October ones cause you never know and may do better than you think. if you do not so well in October, then take November too and hope for the best but try for October first
