    Just wanted to see if anyone on this board is also headed to Tufts; where you're from and where you are planing on living.

    I received my accepatnce last week and am leaning toward Tufts. Have you started to search for housing yet? How or what will you be doing to find a place?

    I will be going to Tufts this fall. I haven't looked for any housing yet, but I have freind in first year, who stays at the dorm, and says that he really like it very much, so probably University housing wouldn't be bad thing for a year.

    I'm still not sure about where I'm gonna live. My friend who is a first year there says that its very convinient specially in the first semester when you're taking gross anatomy. I checked out posner hall when I was there for the interview, its not bad at all. Only a two minute walk from the dental building.

    My freind is a first year dental student there too, and I did check the Posner Hall, it is really very convinient, as it is near by the school, and surely cheaper than the appartments.

    I don't think i would mind the dorms too much, bu when I went for the interview I was told that there was only 39 dorms and they were on a first come first serve basis. Does anyone know how to put your name on the list for dorms----also I was wondering if anyone saw the posting about collecting teeth? Is that something we should be considering or doing?

    Sarahs,

    I think Posner hall has 4 floors and from what Mark said they have 60-65 spots for dental students each year ( the bottom two floors are for med students). From what I was told, they will mail housing stuff in mid march and you have to sign up for it then. The tooth collecting thing I don't know about. let me know if you find out.

    Has any of you found a housing website for the area, specifically for students?

    Sanara, I think we actually interviewed on the same day. I went to CSUS---- you are a grad student from UCLA aren't you? Have you decided between Tufts and Penn yet?

    I got accepted to Tufts too. I wanna know why are you guys choosing Tufts. I am really confused as I don't know which school I should pick between Tufts, Pitt, and Meharry.
