I think Vanderbilt could be the perfect school for me, however I have a few questions about the admission criteria: What is the average un-weighted GPA accepted? How does Vanderbilt view improvements in GPA?
I had a medical condition that affected my schoolwork tremendously my freshman and sophomore year leaving me with around a 2.4, this year however I have it under control and have my grades have improved significantly (for this year i have more like a 3.4). I'm still taking ACTs (im a junior) but have been doing well on those. I'm curently not in any honors classes (although at a private school), next year I plan on applying for multiple honors.
My school doesn't offer AP but going to take AP english and AP studio art test
getting 3 college credits this summer
editor of yearbook
publication director of SADD
publication direction of an in school club only
layout editor of the art magazine
high leadership in a jewish youth group outside of school
lots of comm. service --w/children
I know I'm not the tradition student who applies to vandy -could that somehow help me? or will it only hurt me? will that stop me from being accepted? I've also herd Vandy sometimes looks for a larger jewish population -do you thinking being in touch with the Hillel will help?
I would go on an interview and apply ED. Is there anything else I can do to up my chances of being accepted?
