Listen up, last minute applicants. Unless you’re going to do yourself a favor and submit the application today, you’re going to be sending it along while no one is in the Admissions Office. Please don’t assume this means you have extra time — the applications are “date stamped” when submitted, and you should submit yours by 11:59 p.m. EST (GMT-5) on Sunday, January 15, if you’re interested in scholarship consideration.
But what happens if you have a technical problem on Sunday? Step one would be to consult the Application Support page of the Embark website. Maybe one of their FAQs will have the answer you need. As it happens, we virtually never hear that someone was unable to submit an application, so I’m sure you’ll be successful with a little perseverance. But if problems continue, send us an email. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can on Tuesday. Yes, that’s right — Tuesday — because the office, along with the rest of Tufts University, is closed on Monday for the Martin Luther King, Jr. public holiday.
Good luck, everyone. Looking forward to seeing your applications soon!
