    Has anyone heard anything? I know it a little premature, but I was just wondering? I should have been told by my advisors when I applied that really the process is 13 months of waiting....waiting...waiting:idea:

    When I called the day before deposits were due they said ~35 but they would not give me an exact #. I asked if it was greater than 100, they responded certianly not that high more like 50. Hope that helps.

    I just got mail from Tufts yesterday congratulating me about the fact that I'm STILL on the waitlist and they also broke down the number of people in past cycles that got in from the waitlist..Anyone else get the letter?

    i got that letter too...doesnt look to hopeful with the last years class, only 2.2% being accepted off the waitlist:(

    i am curious though...what does the deferred admission into next years class mean? it says its highly competitive to be considered for this? do we do anything for it?

    thanks.:oops:

    to answer your question messenger, deferred admission just means that they give you an acceptance to the following year's class. From my understanding this process is really selective and only a few people from the waitlist are given this option. So in our case the deferred admission would give us a seat in the 2012 class without having to reapply. Sounds pretty sweet to me if you wanna go to Tufts as bad as I do.

    oh forgot to mention that there's nothing we really can do for deferred admission. It is totally up to the admission committee to hand out this kind of acceptance. That's what I think from my understanding of the whole process.

    Well I called today and they said there were around 80 people on the waitlist, so that's a little more than the 35 or 50 number that has been flying around. Hopefully 20 or more people decide to go somewhere else so around 25% of us waitlistees can get in!!! =) good luck everyone

    I believe there is a list on the AADSAS website that tells you which schools require secondary application fees with the application.

    here's an update,
    I called the admissions office, they told me that this week they offered admissions to 7 people off the waitlist. These students have 10-14 days to make a decision. They said at this point they are not sure how much more attrition will occur, but they will revisit the waitlist if more occurs. I was dissapointed I was not offered a spot, but I am still hopeing. If anyone heard anything else please post.

    When i called them they said that they don't rank their waitlist... so if an applicants declines they just look at the waitlist for someone sharing similar stats. So the amount of people declining doesn't really matter... it's more like destiny, hopefully someone w/ similar stats as u declines :)

    I received an information packet from tufts last week that explained that they will take more people from the waitlist if any of the accepted students do not send in their transcripts and other requested information on time. They will start taking students off the waitlist at the beginning of August (~Aug 6) for this reason.

    I got a call today from Tufts - and got super excited - only to find out it was the health center asking for some more blood tests. That sucked.

    Here's the latest...there has not been any further attrition. July 3rd they expect some since this is the date that people can withdrawl and still get some of their deposit back. After that they said August is the next time people drop their positions. Cross your fingers everyone!

    I'm not sure. It doesn't apply to me so I didn't ask. You can call Melissa or talk to one of staff in the admin office, I'm sure they can be much more specific.

    I just talked to Melissa she said that they are actively reviewing the waitlist right now. So it sounds like we might be hearing something this upcoming week or next.
