Recommendation Guidelines

All applicants are required to submit a recommendation from a military leader or recent employer who knows them well. The purpose is to gain insights into the applicant’s leadership ability and mission focus, moral and ethical compass, and potential to positively impact society after graduation.

Select a recommender who can best provide the following about you:

  1. What leadership trait describes how the applicant leads others to accomplish missions?
  2. What moral and ethical value best describes the applicant’s character?
  3. After the applicant completes their Vanderbilt education, what do you see as their potential for professional success and continued service to society and the nation?
