  • Chose Vanderbilt because “Attending Vanderbilt never seemed like a possible reality, but now I cannot see myself going to any other school. Vanderbilt encompasses everything I have ever wanted in a school from great athletics with coaches and teammates who are supportive, to the high-level academics, as well as the location.”
