Hi All, There doesn't seem to be a thread yet for pre-specialty Vandy applicants (the thread going now seems to consist mostly of grad entry), so I thought I'd start one! Any other pre-specialty folks out there? I am from... Read More

    I took it to mean that if we get in we'll get information about applying for financial aid. It doesn't make any sense to apply for no reason - and they can't give us an aid "package" with details if they don't know who is coming and what their FAFSAs look like. So it was much more a 'primer' than a 'packet' and nothing to get too excited about, but it at least gives some beginning steps and cost ideas!

    Haha yeah my "packet" was two sheets of paper as well. Pretty anti-climactic! I don't know what information will be sent to our email address. I'm just planning on going about doing FAFSA as I've done for the past four years already.

    Actually I think they do suggest applying for FAFSA before we find out if we are admitted. I remember applying for undergrad before I was even admitted to the school I'm finishing up at now. The priority deadlines might be quickly approaching by the time we find out.

    Completing the FAFSA is different than applying for financial aid through Vanderbilt (or any school). Definitely we should all complete the FAFSA as soon as our taxes are done, since you need the FAFSA for aid, but I meant to say that we're not going to get details on an aid package from Vandy (or any school) until we're actually admitted. I know last year they said aid was due March 1st but I didn't see that date on this years packet (I might have missed it!) so I think the e-mail will be follow-up with those instructions.

    Oh sorry I misinterpreted what you said!

    It's okay I was being confusing as well! I was getting the impression (from other threads too) that people were expecting an aid number in the envelope, and that just wouldn't make sense! But yes, now that we're done applying for schools, it's onto FAFSA, school aid, and scholarships! At least we'll be busy while we wait.

    Columbia letters went out today--got in for PMHNP! Anyone else apply there? Vandy is my first choice, but it feels great to know I am accepted to at least one program, and a great one at that!

    Is there anyone out there who did Not get a financial aid packet? I'm kind of getting concerned because I didn't receive one.
