hi!! i’ve finished my tufts RD application and i was curious if anyone had any input on if i should submit my SAT scores before i submit. i have a super score of 1470, 710 reading and 760 math (1440 single sitting – 710 reading 730 math). the score is in the average but with test optional policies my worry is that my score will be measured against mostly 1500+ scores, since those are the most compelling to submit. compared to the rest of my application, my SAT is a weaker part of it, but still a strong score nonetheless.

I would submit - make sure your app really speaks to “why Tufts”. They really look for fit.

Does everyone else have the “no scores to report” on the PDF of their Common App? I know some schools choose to suppress this but I wanted to double check that this is the case for Tufts before I submit.

Yes, Tufts suppresses test scores in the pdf.

Tufts announced 12% increase in applications this year!


NEU supposedly, had 31% increase in applications this year.
So I guess 12 % is not bad …))

@norik95, I think you mean 21% for NEU. And yes, I guess 12% is not as bad but put in the context of last year acceptance rate and we are talking lower than 11% acceptance rate for this year.
