    I got the official acceptance letter in the mail this afternoon. But I live right outside of Boston, so for anywhere else it might be another day or so.

    The committee met yesterday and decisions will likely be mailed out this coming Wednesday. AADSAS will probably be updated around that time too.

    How was the interview? I just received the book yesterday. How thoroughly should I know this thing? I read on here it's not that important but it's really hard to imagine they'd go through that trouble for nothing.

    Reading through the book and memorizing everything really isn't that necessary, but it certainly is very informative. They do talk about it a lot during the day, and they really encourage you to ask lots of questions, so reading it might give you some good areas to ask questions in.
    The whole interview day isn't too stressful. Everyone is really nice and welcoming. I was a little nervous during my interview, but I think I still managed to do ok.

    My daughter may be interviewing at Tufts. Should she wear a pantsuit or a suit with a skirt?

    that should be fine, especially if you take a cab to the airport. I think we were done by 3:15, you could always ask to leave if needed.

    I wouldn't freak out if you don't get an update today. The last time decisions were made, they were sent out to AADSAS on Tuesday afternoon, but the site didn't update until Wednesday morning. Then the official packets came a few days later in the mail.

    Thanks Duriel and NOLA! Keeping my fingers crossed. Do you guys know if aadsas updates more than once a day? Lol i've literally logged on like 30 times since this morning but I have a feeling they dont update multiples times a day!

    Ive been doing the same thing. I really we don't have to wait until 12:01 A.M. :(

    edit: Just checked and a different school just changed... so I guess it does update multiple times a day and they either haven't entered it yet, or it takes aadsas forever to apply their decision.

    My status for TUFTS on aadsas went from Under review to Interview Invite back to Received/Under Review...anyone know what that means? I would be scared if that means they're waiting on me or putting me on the alternative list....I love Tufts! I wouuld be heartbroken to hear anything but an acceptance~

    Mine did that too. I'm hoping that everyone's just went back to Received/Under Review while they update it. Good luck!

    Longest waiting game of my life. Tufts was my first interview on the 23rd, so you can imagine how much I'm biting my nails over this.
