    i am filling out my tufts secondary and trying to figure out what i want to say about why i am applying there. tufts doesn't send out an information booklet (or I just didn't get one) and their website is pretty terrible. i think i found enough info, but i still have 1 question that i can't find an answer to:

    is tufts pass/fail or grades?

    the only question is "why have you applied to tufts university school of medicine?"

    you have about 3.5" of page to compose an answer

    my original question remains:

    does anyone know if tufts is pass/fail?

    I found this on "that other pre-med forum" -- they have a "search for medical schools" function that turns up program descriptions which are quite informative.

    In addition to required courses, first and second-year students choose among pre-clinical selectives. These are graded as Pass/Fail and allow students to explore their interests early on in the program.

    Which would imply that the rest of the curriculum is not pass-fail.
