We don’t always need to reinvent the wheel.  For all of you in the midst of common applications, essays and generally fretting over your applications to the US, I highly recommend that you check out the great blog on the Tufts University Admissions Website – http://admissions.tufts.edu/blogs/inside-admissions/  It includes blog entries from real live admissions officers that will help to clear up the confusion and reassure you that after all, admissions officers are human too.

Kudos to Tufts for sharing their admissions process, perspectives and insights so openly with students!
