I haven’t heard anything And I was emailed in May so I assume it’s not good news for me 😞

It’s still early! Don’t lose hope. There are still several more interviews coming up. 

This was what the admissions page of their website said. 

Selected candidates who have complete and competitive applications are invited to attend one of several interview sessions held throughout the summer and fall. The session--lasting up to 3 hours--will include a program presentation, two individual interviews, and a tour.”

The interview this year is as such: 

Step 1 (2 hours):

  1. An online, live program overview presentation and faculty/student Q&A, directly followed by
  2. An online 3-question asynchronous activity to be completed within the 45 minutes immediately following the live presentation

Step 2 (25 minutes):

A live, synchronized interview (25 minutes) with a principal faculty

When were you verified?

So I applied and was verified on 5/14 by CASPA. But Tufts didn't send me the confirmation email until 6/5. The admissions committee don't start to review your application until after you receive the confirmation email.

For those that got an invite-- About how long was the wait after submitting your step 1 interview preference, did it take for the confirmation email to schedule for step 2? 

Correction: I got the email to schedule the part 2 right after I scheduled part 1. I got the confirmation that both were scheduled the next day.

Hey guys! Just wondering if any one has had any issues receiving emails about interviews. I got a bit nervous when the conformation email said that we needed to configure our emails to receive emails from them. I am just wondering how to do this or if its even necessary? 

I saw the same thing in the confirmation email but haven't had any trouble receiving emails from them! I did not configure my email at all but I did make them a VIP contact in my email so that all emails from them would go straight to my main inbox!

Congrats! What were your stats?!

GPA 3.82, science GPA 3.88, PCE 5000ish hr, volunteer 3000ish hr (including a 1.5 year full time church mission, without it I'd have like 800), GRE 307 (46th percentile math, 76th percentile english, 4.5 writing), shadowing like 115 hr I believe? Best of luck! 🙂
