    Not to my knowledge. Vanderbilt does, however, send scholarship applications to certain applicants. If you don't fill it out ,then you reduce chance of admission. Fill it out and get a trip to campus and an acceptance.

    Um, please state exactly where you got this piece of information? I highly doubt this is true.

    What university would consider someone for a scholarship and then decide after the student didn't apply for a scholarship that he didn't deserve admission? Bluegrass ain't smurf dope, but I'd like some of whatever it is you're smoking.

    icy... what mailing are u talking about? I received the app package for the Cornelius, Chancelor, and Ingram. is that what you are talking about?

    I think icy means that if you receive this from Vandy, then you stand a good chance of receiving scholarships, so you should apply for them. If you don't apply, that will demonstrate a lack of interest in the school.
    ...I'm not entirely sure that's true, but I think that is what she means.

    icy... some people don't apply for merit scholarships because they expect to get lots of need-based anyhow

    I second John's question - which mailing is this? I'm assuming it can't be that original one with all three, since the Ingram app was due a month before they even saw all the applicants and the semis already came out, but when would they be sending this?
