Why College X - Tufts 3

Essay Prompt

Which aspects of Tufts’ curriculum or undergraduate experience prompt your application? “Why Tufts?” (Required length is 50-100 words)

Sample Essay

There was nothing that rung truer to my personality than a section of the curriculum dedicated to exploring classes like "Demystifying the Hipster". Although studying the intricate personality of a hipster is interesting enough for me to be sold, it was the way Experimental College highlighted the most important aspect of Tufts' culture, a culture that embraces diversity, quirks, and intellect that made me realize this was the school for me.
