    My faculty interview was very conversational/casual, but I also interviewed with an MS4 who stuck more closely to the list of questions. Both were very nice and wanted you to be relaxed, though!

    They told us the next committee meeting was early next week :eek:

    Accepted to Boston! At interview they mentioned 1/4 to 3/4 need-based scholarships. Anyone here that can comment on how common these are?? The pricy tuition is my only concern for Tufts :(

    In terms of availability, there are two dates in January, four dates in February, and one date in March.

    The past few times calls have been made on separate days...so one still could be coming. It seems like the calls end after the wave of deferred decision emails are sent out.

    I just got deferred, I wanted to ask if anyone here knows how likely it is to get accepted after a deferral? I know it basically means they'll make another decision on my application in december but it is disheartening.

    the uncertainty around deferred decision is crazy. both what it means and the time frame for a decision. I wonder if most are left for the spring? Or they just dish out those decisions all over the place?

    After extensive diving on the internet, it looks as if the vast majority of deferred applicants are either waitlisted or rejected, with VERY few applicants being accepted after deferment. :(

    I was accepted to the MD/MPH program today and now I have to choose between MD only and MD/MPH in two weeks. Any current students have any advice or know anything about the dual degree program? I love public health but I'm not sure if the extra $$ and time are worth it.

    Based on the portal, there are currently 8 interview days with open slot/s. I also assume people are gonna cancel between now and March (which is when their interview season ends), so I'm sure they still have some IIs to send out. But probably not much tbh
