    Most of the schools I am applying to as a transfer are need-blind. However, one (Vandy) is not. Fortunately, my parents are willing and able to pay my entire education if I were to get in. I was wondering should I notify the admissions office to let them know? I feel as though this could help me get in and also allocate funds to students that may need it more. I don’t want to sound pretentious or desperate so I fear that sending an email or calling notifying them I do not need money would not be in my best interest. What do you think? Thanks.

    Are you an international student? If not, I have some good news for you! Vanderbilt’s admissions are, as stated on their website “need-blind for U.S. Citizens and eligible non-citizens.” This applies to all undergraduates, including transfers. I have done tens of hours of research on the need-consideration components of college applications and have applied to 14 universities. I would say that sending an email or notifying them will likely not help your case. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

    What about for international students? I saw that many colleges and universities claim that they adopt need-blind policy in financial aid. However, I doubt whether this is true for international students. Thanks for your answering.
