    Congrats guys! I'm a D14 here at Tufts. I was in your position and I know how exciting it must be to getting all of these acceptances this time of year. I also know it can be a difficult decision when it comes down to narrowing your choices among schools you fell in love with during your interviews. Feel free to shoot me a PM or ask questions in this thread if you have any questions about the school before making your decision. I love it here at Tufts/Boston and can probably help clear up some lingering questions you may have. I may not be able to get back to you promptly - because we have pretty crazy exam block ahead this coming week prior to winter break. Again, congrats and good luck! :D

    If you decide not to go to Tufts, how much does Tufts refund your deposit for and what are the dates/deadlines for it?

    I remember on the interview they said that they would refund you $300 if you told them you weren't attending by some time in March or April. I would call and double check all of this when you figure out where you are attending.

    I am pretty sure the scholarship is a combination of gpa and DAT scores. i only say this because i got 22+ on my DAT but did not receive any scholarship :(

    I just wanted to say congratulations to everyone who was accepted to Tufts. I just recently graduated from there in 2010 and my experience there was awesome. I come from a fairly suburban area of town and the move to Boston was quite eye-opening. I made so many great friends and had many memorable experiences there. I am currently practicing back home but may move back in the next couple of years. I just loved it there.

    hey guys! congrats on getting in. i'm a D14 here at tufts. (we're one of the schools that uses the year you graduate for what year you are, instead of the D1, D2...)

    anyways. i'm sure yall are super excited, as was i about this time last year.
    if anyone has any questions- feel free to pm me. It might take a little bit for me to respond, bc we have a weird crazy schedule. it's still pretty early to work out living and other details that feel like major decisions.

    congrats again :)

    I have an interview next week at Tufts, but haven't gotten anything in the mail. I heard we are supposed to fill out the supplemental application along with a DMD Guide. I got the supplemental through e-mail from the admissions office, but what is the DMD Guide? Thanks!

    Cheeseman, the DMD guide is just a huge info packet. There's nothing in it to fill out, just read.

    Sorry. Ignore my last post. That was dumb to put on a Tufts acceptance thread. I really wanna go to Tufts, but am concerned of how much debt I will have. What are your guys' opinions on this?

    They meet very regularly. I think every couple weeks if not less.
    I interviewed on a Monday in mid-December and got my acceptance 2 days later, because the admissions committee was meeting that day following our interviews.

    I got my acceptance on AADSAS on 2/1, and got my stuff in the mail on 2/3....I would call if I were you, b/c we only have 15 days to respond to the offer.

    the deposit is $1,500 but they require you to pay with either a certified check or money order. they don't accept personal checks for it. there's also some other paperwork you need to fill out with it, so i'd try and wait until you get your package. if you don't get it by monday, give them a call and they can help you figure out what to do.

    and congrats!
