i asked this question earlier today because I have a March interview and apparently 100 or so seats out of 185 are deposited and they interview about 10 people a day. With all the people that got in today though and from the looks of it are going...the seat number is going to decrease

Hey, so when I interviewed in late january they said that they had about 75 deposits down, so I did some very rough calculations based on the numbers they gave me.

After my interview they had 2 sets of acceptances, and each set of acceptances covered 2 weeks of interviews. They interview about 16 people per day 3x a week, so that's about 100 people per acceptance wave, accept around 80% of those, so that's about 160 additional acceptances. They said that they expect around a 50% yield, so around 80 of those should place a deposit leaving 75+80=155, so with their numbers, probably around 30 spots left = 60 acceptances approximately.

Don't give up hope! Many people think that tufts is pricey and may elect to go somewhere cheaper. They will definitely tell you at your interview how many spots are open

I was also offered 3 days to interview in a week, so thats how I came up with that number. Again, it was just a rough approximation

Yes, there should be interviews both of those days. When I called to schedule my interview, my choice was between Feb. 21, 23, 24, 27, 28, and March 1. I'll be interviewing on Feb. 24th.

i think it might be better living in an apt than dorm. more privacy and plus you get your space of course (kitchen, bathroom). i've been searching already and found a studio in malden that i liked but im going back end of june to look around. i found some studios in allston and brighton for about \$1000/mon. most ive looked at included heat/hot water. i thought they might show the dorms during the tour but they didnt so im thinking its in bad shape.

 02-22-2012, 11:54 AM #119 Junior Member   Status Pre-Dental Join Date: Jan 2012 Posts: 8 eh, I would go with malden if you're interested in a nicer neighborhood and shorter commute. Taking the T from Allston is a PAIN! The only plus to living in allston/brighton is that it's a college "town" and great bars around there. So if you have time to hit the city, it's great. Otherwise, Malden is not bad.The public transit stops around midnight

Yes, very safe! Allston/brighton...not so much. The places I'd stay away from are Dorchester, Roxbury, Roslindale area.

I lived in Brighton my first year (and in that part of town for the five years previous to dental school) - it's really not bad.

If it says offer made does that mean acceptance for sure, or wait list/alternate list?!!? Did you receive an e-mail or anything?!

Can someone please lmk if you got an email in addition to the aadsas update? does "offer made" really mean acceptance or waitlisted?

You're accepted. Congratulations. You'll get a packet of information in the mail in a few days. I hope to see you in the fall!

Congratulations! I'm surprised you got into Tufts and didn't get into BU. It's always hard to predict how the interview went, though. See you this fall!

 02-23-2012, 03:13 PM #135 Junior Member   Status Pre-Dental Join Date: Jan 2012 Posts: 8 I was in the first round of interviews, and I came 2 minutes late into the interview :x I think that killed it for me. I don't mind; I'm glad it happened because I would've been preeeetty upset had I paid the deposit months ago haha.

I also got accepted at Tufts but rejected at BU. Really surprised me, but I'm certainly not going to lose any sleep over it! I'm soooo excited to go to Tufts! I thought I had a solid interview at BU, but thought I messed up my Tufts interview too, lol.

I'm really surprised by that. It's really hard to tell with the interviews, as you can't always read how it went with the person that interviews you. I agree, though, as I definitely wouldn't lose any sleep over it. It turned out for the best. Congratulations on getting into Tufts! I think we're going to have a great class. As I've said, don't forget to join our class facebook group.

I requested to join the group yesterday but haven't gotten response yet. Just letting you know! I'm not sure who is in charge of it.

 02-24-2012, 10:55 AM #145 Member     Status: Pre-Dental Join Date: Jul 2010 Location: Boston Posts: 25 Hey everyone congrats on the acceptances. I was waitlisted on 2/23. I am waitlisted at Columbia also. I know that Colubmia aften puts applicants on the waitlist until they have a large group and then reviews them all including the poeple who recently interviewed, I was just wondering if Tufts was similar? Is it a ranked list? My interviewer literally knew nothing about me so it was hard to have a real conversation about him aside from telling him about myself. He also had no answers to any of the questions I asked. It was not a bad interview, but he did not ask any questions about my application or history, I tried to slip some of this stuff in there but apparently I was unsuccessful. I just wonder how an interview like that affects someones chances? I cant imagine him having much to say to the adcom.

I was told that Tufts does not rank their list. When it comes time to choose people from waitlist, they re-review everything of everyone. Good luck!!

 02-24-2012, 05:34 PM #147 New Member   Status Pre-Dental Join Date: Feb 2012 Posts: 1 So my AADSAS page says "offer made" for Tufts and I have received a background check email, but I haven't gotten any official correspondence from Tufts. Has anyone else received an official email from Tufts? With the "offer made" that means I'm accepted, right?
 02-24-2012, 06:18 PM #148 Senior Member   Status: Dental Student Join Date: Aug 2011 Posts: 223 You're accepted! You won't get any official email from Tufts. I got the official packet in the mail about 5 days after my AADSAS status update, so don't get worried if you it takes awhile.
