"This was my first interview and it was great! All the students are very nice, the faculty is nice, and the campus is beautiful. I live in LA, but now that I've seen the campus and the students, I have a very high interest in moving to Vandy. All the interviewers go through a training class that teaches them to be extra nice to you. You shouldn't be worried because you don't really get grilled and the interviww is basically like a regular conversation. The interviewer talks like 60% of the time because they want to tell you about Vanderbilt. " Report Response
