what's up with tufts?

J

jackbauer!

i pay tufts a $60 application fee and they do not respond to e-mails and/or phone messages :confused: every other school has been very courteous and timely in replying to my inquiries, speaking to me personally, and at least filling me in on the status of my application/how full the class is looking. But with tufts, I feel like i'm left in the dark..very unprofessional.

With the 4000 applicants x $60/application we're talking about $240,000. they can't afford to staff the admissions office..where is this money going??

i'm sorry, but am i the only one that feels like they've been screwed by tufts? :thumbdown:

they didn't have an application fee...i remember them telling me that they did away with it this year

sorry to hear that their interview spots have filled up already, and i hope it works out for the best to all those that are waiting. and who knows, some people cancel their interviews

thats dirty

they told me not to pay bc there was no more fee...then again, i applied in like october, so maybe they did away with it by then

I have no idea what you're talking about. I paid an application fee and I applied in November. Would love to have that money back - or at least have it be applied towards tuition.
... Additionally, someone always picks up the phone on me when I call. Weird...
