    Thanks Wirez. I know it's expensive, but I'll be happy to pay if it's the only school that accepts me!

    Interview invite as well :)

    Audit email 7/19
    Complete email 7/26
    Interview invite 8/29 (today)

    As for the tuition. I'm not sure how it factors, but the average debt according to MSAR is $202,845 with 78% receiving financial aid. (Assuming 78k/yr for 4 years = 312k, so about 110k avg saved. Although I'm not sure if averages include outside scholarship students such as HPSP)

    I'd rather not post stats here, but if you want to PM I will gladly tell you some information.

    Congratulations to everyone who got Interview Invite!
    DO we get a complete email once the audit process is complete? I got audit start email on August 9th (when I submitted my secondary) and then I checked the status on August 22nd that they have matched my LoRs with my application. I never got the "complete" email. Should I be worried?

    I don't think so - I also had a couple/few days delay before I got the "complete" email!

    Regarding the audit/complete emails: I got the audit email 8/1 and my status on the website says "application complete" but I have yet to receive any email to that effect. Anybody else in this situation? Should I just sit tight or make a phone call?

    is it just me, or is Tufts slow as **** when it comes to processing applications? I was verified 8/8, had my secondary completed 8/10, and had my recommendation letters submitted before I was even verified. I JUST got an email from Tufts TODAY saying they just confirmed my application..... wtf is up with the delay???

    No secondary essays + superscore = thousands of apps = slow delay.

    I'm guessing it has to do with manually updating almost 8,000 applications. Everything's going to be okay.

    There are other schools that get just as many (or more) applications as Tufts who still manage to confirm completion within a day or two.

    Well I submitted on August 1 but didn't get the complete email until today. There go my chances. I wonder why I even bothered submitting early?

    So that means almost everyone else is in the same boat as us, you guys! I think we'll be okay if everyone gets the same delay in processing it

    If everyone is in the same boat how did the people who submitted a few days ahead of me get an interview invite and i just got a application complete email? I was really ahead of the game at Tufts because I wanted a better shot at getting in. Now I might as well just be any other applicant.

    I doubt two weeks will change whether or not you'll get an interview. It looks like most who received invites were complete around the time that you submitted, so you weren't exactly ahead of the game. Good luck, though. I hope you get an invite.

    They didn't add my letters until the 24th which is the main reason I am upset. They had been available for weeks before that.

    submitted: aug 1st, no idea when audit email came, Complete today aug 31st.

    I feel like this would upset most of the people on here.

    Revolt. You realize if no one went to medical school this year they would have to give in to our demands.

    I am guessing we all are in the same baot. I was also marked complete on Wednesday. I am guessing they are sending/reviewing/marking them complete in batches. If you notice, all others who received their interviews were complete on/around 8/1. So, relax guys! We are next. All the best!
    and congrats to those who got II!
