    I hope you get your interview, thanks for the congrats! When I interviewed on Dec 1st, I believe they said they still had plenty of interviews to give so there is a lot of hope. Hang in there and good luck.

    Woah!! I *JUST* interviewed this Monday, had a horrible trip where 3 of my 4 flights were delayed, ended up with a 14 hour layover in Colorado because of snow, meaning I had to sleep in the terminal on my way back to CA, and now my AADSAS says "Offer Made"! At least it was worth it :p

    Congratulations! At least it was worth it:D R U definitely coming to Tufts? May be you can tell people how many acceptances the admissions officers said they gave already. That might ease some people's worries because I think Tufts still has many slots open!

    I'm not sure. So far I've interviewed at USC, Tufts, and UNLV, and I've gotten into USC and Tufts. Tufts > USC in my opinion, but UNLV really impressed me. Also, UCLA is my dream school, but my chances are slim to nothing for them. If I get into UNLV it'll be a real head scratcher for me to pick a school. If not, then it'll be an easy deposit into Tuft's bank account :p

    Forgot to answer the question about how many were accepted as of last Monday. I think it was 80. They plan to accept over 300. Of course, after this Friday there are more people in.

    I think there were 15 people in my group, and based on my email for invitation they do 2 groups a week. They said 60-70% of anyone with an interview will be accepted.

    Towards February and March, this percentage drops off a bit as the class fills up and most of the competitive applicants have been accepted already. I think by mar

    Well, they literally accept 60-70% of everyone they interview (interviewing 500 for 300 acceptances for example), so if there is a higher percentage accepted in the beginning, then it is a very high percentage... > 70%

    Hah, only 2 days later and you're asking if I decided yet :p I have some commitments in Los Angeles I'd have to deal with before being able to move to Boston, and I'm not sure I can fulfill them before September. I'm actually waiting to hear someone's opinion on the matter, but he is out of the country and unable to respond right now :/
