    Orientation is a whirlwind of meeting hundreds of people, feeling lost, not sleeping and trying to figure out who to eat with. Its crazy and overwhelming. Some people love it and some hate it. Whatever the case may be, it ends, and campus feels much more comfortable--like a home. You will have so many new friends and any familiar face is more than happy to wave back. You get to build your entirely new community from scratch--a unique opportunity. Take advantage of it and talk to anyone, even someone who seems completely opposite to you. You'll probably find yourselves bonding over your love of Harry Potter or Beyonce. Its amazing! Welcome to Tufts!

    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.

    Try to get a grasp on the feel of the school and if you can imagine living there for the next four years.
