Hey everyone

I have a question related to the application submission for Tufts. I applied to Tufts through CAAPID this week. I haven’t received any email from Tufts yet. Can I send the documents that need to be send directly to them or do I need to wait for the email?

Thank you in advance for the response.

Doesn't matter about completion date. Every year, tufts sends all the interview invites altogether, on single day.

So TUFTS is done sending interviews? They send all invites in one day? How many applicants do they usually invite for interview?

As Tufts has mentioned on CAAPID that only the applicants who are either US Citizen or permanent resident are eligible to apply to Tufts otherwise the application will not be processed.so my question here is Are you all US Citizen /perm resident?

Yes, and I would assume everyone else is too. It's clearly stated so why would someone waste all the money and time?!

Yeah, that's almost half off. I hope they cut down the number of people they interview too..
