    I'm applying to Tufts this cycle and was wondering what the average board scores have been for students that attend Tufts. Does anyone know what percentage of students enter any post-doctoral placement (including GPR and AEGD) and what percentage specialize?


    Thanks

    I think its probably 40% go on to post doc programs, but maybe 30% of the class go on to specialize right after school. I'm not sure what the board score average is, but we rank in the top 10 if not top 5 almost every year.

    You'll get a big booklet in the mail soon with all the statistics. From the book I got, the average Part 1 scores were between 84-89 (higher than the national average) for the past 10 years.

    Around 15% of the class goes on to do a GPR, 6% do AEGD, and I think 15% specialize. The booklet gives you more specific details. I just gave a quick runthrough of what I found in the book. Hope it helps :)
