I found my one on one to be very conversational and relaxed. My interviewer asked personal questions regarding my application and clearly had experiences that she wanted to touch upon with me at some

Just received an invitation for an interview today, Very excited!

Does Tufts have a supplemental application????/ Having a hard time finding it on the website. 

The supplemental app itself is in CASPA. If you select Tufts as one of your schools in CASPA, the supplemental will be available in Program Materials.

I was verified by CASPA on May 5th but haven't received a 'complete' email from Tuft's yet as I've seen others mention in previous posts. Has anyone received a confirmation email yet?

I have not. I submitted May 4th and was verified May 13th. I received an email earlier this week saying they conducted a cursory review of my application and needed a transcript with my date of degree conferral but I haven't received a specific confirmation email yet. 

Are people applying to PA or MPH/PA? Best of luck everyone!!

Anyone heard anything about what the virtual interview is supposed to be like? On the website it says a synchronous and asynchronous activity. What does that mean? MMI?

It’s two one on one interview that are back to back. Honestly it’s one of the better and more straight forward sessions. There’s no writing/essay component either

Hi everyone! I'm so close to submitting to CASPA, just waiting on CAPSA to change status to "arrive" on a final transcript. It took the school forever to mail it since they were all working remotely, but I received confirmation that it was mailed on Thursday (two days ago).

How long do you think it takes CASPA to verify receipt of a mailed transcript? The one for my other school was electronic and it showed up as "arrived" in CASPA within two days.

Also, I'm getting really anxious about the timeline. I really wanted to get my CASPA application verified before June. If it's verified beginning of June, do you think that's "too late" for Tufts since it's rolling admissions? I've been so stressed over this the last few weeks.

hi! I had the same issue and was worried everything would be delayed. My transcript was processed by CASPA exactly a week after my school sent it into the mail. My friends who went to two different schools had the same response. My CASPA was verified the same day I submitted, but other people have reported different wait times so it depends! And June is not too late to submit to Tufts I am sure there are others who don't submit until right before the deadline!

 

Hope this helped!

Thank you for sharing your experience! That makes me feel better. Good to know that CASPA has been (on average) processing things quickly.

Submitted 5/12

Verified 5/13

Still no confirmation but I got an email from Tufts that was “not specific to my application” and it was a reminder to submit everything on time. I submitted everything they need though (verified CASPA, transcripts, test scores, all LOR, payment) so I’m a bit confused. Anyone else?

That’s definitely weird maybe you can try emailing them? I applied 5/19 and got a confirmation/ received email 5/21.

I just called the office and they said the director of the program is behind on sending emails and they are behind on reviewing applications because they have received so many this cycle, more than they anticipated. So the director is sending out emails now to those who are missing prereqs, hours etc. as a priority before they get started reviewing. Just thought you guys would like to know!

I read last year's thread and applicants were interviewing as early as June 4... that's next week! It definitely seems like they try to interview early because of the early start date.
