"I had a late morning interview so I was able to sit in on a class after the morning orientation. Students came up to the interviewees during their break and talked to us about the school. My interviewer was very nice and he basically wanted to get to know my interests a little better. The tour wasn't that great, but you do have time to look around a little on your own. Overall I had a really fun time visiting Vanderbilt and I think I'd be happy there." Report Response
