    I did write something in the optional essay, although of course no one can say if that mattered or not. I didn't write a "why Tufts" essay, but I wrote something about my life experiences I hadn't mentioned before

    allright thanks a lot for the reply. I really dont know what to include for the an additional comments, i think i covered or at least touched on everything in my primary app. if they wanted a why tufts essay, i think they would've asked that, or am I wrong?

    Does anyone know when the interview invites start going out for the Tufts Maine Track program? Has anyone gotten an interview for it yet?

    Also, what about MD/MPH program? Are there any of those applicants on here? I would find myself lucky if I am the only one in that program :D

    We're in the same boat! How late do you actually think we are?? I still have 12 more secondaries! 29 schools wasn't the best idea... Anyways, hopefully the sites back up tomorrow. Finishing up the diversity essay now. Goodluck to everyone at their interviews!

    Yeaaaa, I am a late applicant as well. Was waiting for a new MCAT score, which went up 6 points. (SO HAPPY!) I completed the secondary on Friday (9-16), received the audit email today (9-19), and am now just patiently waiting.


    This is one of my dreams schools. I live in a small suburb in the midwest, and lovveee big cities and would loveeee to live in Boston for grad school.

    Just sent in an "in the area" email, will keep everyone posted on the success or lack there of. Figured since some people have been successful with this I might give it a shot, and being from CA this would be a huge help since these east coast trip are really expensive.

    I sent an "in the area" email 29 Aug (complete 26 July) and got a response the next day:
    "Thank you for your update message and for your interest in Tufts University School of Medicine."

    No word since.

    does Tufts send out complete emails? When I check my application status on their applicant portal, it says I am complete, but I haven't received any notification

    I was complete in mid July and don't recall receiving an email from Tufts about this. Anyone else who applied in July received a complete?

    My stats are bit embarrassing: Low gpa (like really low but upward trend and from a top 5 institution depending on who you ask), my MCAT is avg (maybe even low for SDN) but this is my 3rd interview so I must have something going for me.

    if you're super curious, you can PM me.

    if you lose hope, what else is seriously left? Seriously keep your head up and see my post above. I prolly shouldn't even be applying this cycle according to a lot of people but I've got a **** ton of hope!

    Definitely in the same boat as you - just because you have lower stats doesnt mean these schools are out of reach!

    Congrats on the interview invites! Looks like they are finally interviewing people with more modest numbers so that is hopeful for the rest of us non-superstats students!
