TUFTS: What are my chances for ED II

kwnstandinakwnstandina 95 replies2 threads Junior Member
My name is Constantina but people call me Nadia!
Tufts is obviously my top school since I am applying ED.
I have toured once and have gone for a STEM day.

SATs: 1300
ACTs: Composite 29, English 28, Math 32, Reading 28, Science 27, ELA 25, STEM 30
GPA: 3.81/4 (top 12%)
AP's: Calc AB (3)
Senior courseload: AP Physics, AP Bio, AP Language and Comp., AP Calc BC, Internship at doctors office, Independent German 3
Awards: National Honors Society, Honor roll, New Hampshire scholar with honors, Intermediate German Award, Questbridge Finalist

I am 100% fluent in Greek and English. I also speak some German.

First generation College student (actually my mom was born here but finished high school in Greece so I am kinda first generation American as well)

Extra curriculars: Varsity Gymnastics Team, Captain junior and senior year,
I intern with two Orthodontists, they both graduated from Tufts schools and one of them is a professor at Tufts Dental

Recommendations: Guidance councilor 7/10. She knows a little about my life but it was mostly about my school work.
Two teacher recommendations: AP calc teacher 9/10, Bio teacher 9/10
The doctor I intern with wrote me a fantastic 10/10 recommendation about team work and personality. He used to do interviews for tufts and has gone to three of their fantastic schools

Essays: Common App essay: 9/10 I am Greek and I wrote about my personality development when I was sent to Greece for the summer to live with my uncle.

Quest bridge essays: 10/10 Spoke about my fathers drug and alcohol problems and how he was not a real parent to me, and how he was never there for me mentally and physically.
10/10 wrote about my time at the office interning and how it has made me love Orthodontics so much. I also touched upon some achievements and cool projects I have engineered.
Both of these essays were very well written and I had checked over them with multiple teachers and peers

Being a Questbridge Finalist is supposed to help my admissions to their partner schools But I do not know exactly how helpful it is, so thats some what a good thing too.

I would really love to have an interview so I requested one, but I haven't found out if I have received the opportunity yet.

I have confidence in being accepted some days but others I couldn't even dream of being accepted and I would love you guys to just tell me the truth about what you guys' thoughts are! Its really easy to overestimate your chances when you have family and friends doing all the judging!
