I chose this college because it provides quality education and opportunities to meet and learn from great people. The location also provides opportunities to explore and attend interesting events.
The course curriculum is a balanced mix of core requirements and major classes. The distributions are broad so everyone can find classes they are interested in and expand their horizons beyond just the required classes.
I specifically enjoyed the people when I went to campus. I also liked the liberal arts vibe and the prestige of the school fit my needs for what I was looking for. My college counselor told me to look at the school, but before I didn't think much of it. I ended up applying early decision and getting accepted.
I took the ACT and got a 33. I would say the average score is about 31-32 at least in my year. I only took it twice. But I did study and I was more than prepared to take the exam. They accept both ACT and SAT and don't require any further exams, even AP which I did take for biology, psychology, calculus, and world history.
Ultimately, I chose Tufts because it was the best school I got into. I heard of it from my mom who was simply researching top colleges because I was a top-caliber student in high school. The application process was similar to others, requiring the Common Application and supplemental essay questions. This was one of twelve schools I applied to, and one of the four I was admitted into. In hindsight, I realize that my essays for my application to Tufts were the best out of all of my other college application essays because I gave myself freedom with them and did not stress over them being perfect. In high school I was valedictorian out of 418 students, class President, a student member of the District Board of Education, published author and illustrator, founder and president of Math club, partner of Wigs and Wishes, varsity cheerleader, among other accolades. I was an accomplished student, which is characteristic of the students at Tufts.
Tufts was not very clear about their minimum requirements to get in because they take a holistic approach to admissions. I took the ACT and got a 32, and a super score of 33. My high school GPA was over 4.6 with a non-weighted GPA of 4.0. When I applied in January 2017, there were about 20,000 applicants and they accept around 3,000. I came into Tufts with four AP credits that they accepted and could apply.
