I thought I’d share an article from Tufts Alumni News about the record breaking number of applications received by the University this year. For the first time in the history of Tufts admissions, the acceptance rate falls below 20 percent. Over the years, as I’ve chatted with my college friends, we’ve noted how much more difficult it is for kids to get into college nowadays. Many of of honestly believe that we probably wouldn’t be accepted under today’s standards and stiffer competition. While many of us were on our own when going through the college applications process, having a knowledegeable and trustworthy person to look over your application materials seems ever more vital now.
