My cousin found out I didn't apply to Tufts; he went berserk and told me to do it now because he thought that the fact he went to Tufts will give me a leg up. I am fairly sure that you are only affiliated to a school if your parents or siblings go to that school however, as silly as he usually is, he might be right. Should I apply to Tufts? I don't even know if they ask about affiliation in their secondary. Any help is appreciated. I didn't apply to Tufts earlier because my number is fairly weak compare to their accepted number. I am a cGPA 3.64 and 33M.
