Paulina, I’m interested to hear more on your experience as a multicultural student because I’m also one and have found looking for diversity to be a difficult part of this application process. Do you feel like Tufts supports diversity or has resources to help you?

Where do students typically live? I was looking up housing options (yes, I know, a bit premature) and it doesn’t seem like there is much in the Grafton area?
Megan Gutwillig
55:42
@Vanisha Patel It's probably easier to type out. But to train to become a specialist you do a 1 year internship and then you do a 3 year residency after you finish vet school. There's a little bit of variation depending on what specialty you pick but that's generally how it works. Specialties include everything from equine surgery to oncology to neurology, etc. That's a long way down the line though so there's lot of time to figure it out!
Daisy Barrionuevo
55:43
Typically how many classes do students take? And do fourth year students choose where to go for their clinical year?
Vanisha Patel
58:40
On the application there is a que about areas of interest. Does the admission committee categorize students and select students based on that so Tufts has diversity?
