What impressed you negatively?

"I was shocked by the lack of diversity at this school. This school doesn't even know the definition of the word "diversity". Rather, its admissions philosophy seems to be founded upon a rigid, conservative elitism, favoring upper class applicants from safe, prestigious private schools. And considering Vanderbilt's determination to reach the USNews Top 10 by 2010, it's safe to state that this university is overly concerned with its image. Whatever happened to taking pride in what your institution accomplishes based on your own standards, rather than those of some magazine editors. If I had known the above, I wouldn't have even applied here. " Report Response
