Monday is the Massachusetts Patriot’s Day holiday. We’ll remember the early battles of the War for Independence and keep an eye on the results of the Boston Marathon. There’s a nice group of Fletcher students who will run as members of the Tufts Marathon Challenge team. Give a cheer for Dan Gallucci, Ken Hammond, Trevor McNeil, Elsa Palanza, Deirdre Roy, Jeffrey Smith, Dave Viola, and Roxane Wilber, all of whom have honed their running skills with help from marathon guru Coach Don Megerle, in exchange for raising $1000 for Tufts community outreach around nutrition and exercise.
Normal Admissions Office hours will prevail tomorrow (Friday) and Tuesday the 20th when, as it happens, admitted students who have been awarded a scholarship should submit their enrollment decision. Any last questions? Make sure you ask tomorrow or Tuesday morning, at the latest.
By Wednesday, we’ll have a good, but still incomplete, picture of the entering class, with the remaining enrollment decisions due May 1.
Also due May 1 are the responses from applicants offered a place on the waitlist.
To those waitlisted candidates who are anxiously monitoring the enrollment process, we haven’t forgotten you! We’re going to need to track enrollment for a while longer, but at the same time, we’ll be figuring out who has remained on the waitlist. We’ll also review the additional materials that many of you have sent in. I’ll post updates at fairly regular intervals to let you know where things stand.
