Harvard or Tufts?
I'm a rising hs senior and Harvard and Tufts are my two top choices but I just can't decide between the two. I am a double legacy at Harvard so both of my parents are really pressuring me into having it be my first choice, but I'm not sure if that's what I really want. Both of my parents are extremely unhappy and I just kind of want to go on my own path. However, I feel like if I choose Tufts as my first choice I will be wasting the opportunity of going to Harvard because I have an increased chance of getting in because of my legacy and my parents would also probably be disappointed. Any advice?6 replies
