Tufts has come to be one of my top choices(I'm a junior, starting visits) and want to visit as soon as possible. The info sessions they offer, are they worth it? I have a chance to visit soon, and a campus tour is available however there won't be an info session going right now.
Should I wait until an info session is available(can do this later, but would have to miss school) or just go for a campus tour?
Thank you very much for your feedback!! I am definetely going on a tour, but I was just wondering if I should hold out and miss school to do a tour and info session.
Also, Tufts is my #1 on paper, and will probably be one of my reaches(as I have no SATs I'm not quite sure as to where I stand). How can I express that Tufts is my top choice, besides going on campus tours? I believe they only offer summer programs for those who live in the area.
I visited twice, but didn't really get the full picture until I did the overnight visit the second time around. If possible, do the overnight visit because it will supercede paper in its ability to truly portray Tufts.
the info sessions generally never told me anything i couldn't have read in one of those Barron's Most Competitive College books. And in all honesty, even though the tour technically shows you the campus - and trust me, one of my best friends and my roommate are both going to be tour guides this year, so they're definitely choosing the right people to show you Tufts - i still realize, every time I see a tour walking by, that the tour really just didn't show me ANYTHING about what living on campus is actually like. I would strongly, strongly suggest calling admissions and asking for an overnight. Stay one night with a freshman, have them take you around, eat in the dining halls and introduce you to the people they live/hang out with. Then you'll get a clear picture
