    Play up what makes you different. Scores and grades are obviously important, but everyone applying here is smart, so it's really your essays that are going to show the admissions officers what makes you stand out from the 18,000 other smart kids in the application pile.

    When applying, be yourself as much as possible. The admissions officers value nothing more than a true genuine personality being shown on your college application. As a Tufts student, you should now be prepared to read a lot. The university is very large so don't be afraid if you don't make new friends right away, they will come to you. Don't sign up for 8 am classes if you do not consider yourself a morning person!

    Come to Tufts open minded and willing to discuss, defend, and adjust your opinions. Social justice and change are massively prevalent subjects on campus, and it's difficult to get away from them. In-depth discussions outside of class time have been frequent in my experience.

    Rock your scores and grades; this place is competitive. Do all the essays and use that space in your application to show that you have a more global perspective on citizenship. Tufts is huge on international citizenship responsibility. Make sure you know why you want to be at Tufts. Tufts comes with a price tag. It would be a waste of your money to use Tufts as a place to find yourself. Be yourself. You can't fool the admissions folks. They have seen everything.
