Mail from Tufts?

I posted this on the tufts thread, but there was no response, so I am trying here.

My son visited last fall, and really loved it, but has not gotten any mail from them, even though his stats are in their ball park. Has any one received mail from Tufts? Has anyone received the application?

    I've received mail, but no application.

    QuakerOaties what type of mail have you received? We haven't received anything, not even the viewbook. I'm wondering if he is somehow off the mailing list, even though he visited.

    After I visited, I have gotten very little mail, only like 2 things about visiting and sports. Don't be worried, I think they just don't send a ton of mail.

    Their application site will be down for a couple of days in early-September, probably to put up this year's app. As for the viewbook, they still don't have this year's edition yet. When I visited in mid-August, I had last year's viewbook.

    I just posted on the other thread with a link to the online statement that says the app won't be available till September.

    I wouldn't worry. Our own experience is similar to that described by others on this thread. There's been little if any mail. When we visited in late July, we got last year's viewbook.

    Since Tufts seems to have strong preference for online apps, perhaps that is also part of their policy of not flooding out our mailbox with paper copies? Are others planning an online app in view of that preference given by Tufts?

    Thanks all.

    I'm not sure about how my son will apply. His school is very rigid, so they might want all the applications to go out of their guidance dept. I'll know in a few weeks.
