Hey, I'm a junior, and I wanted to ask some questions concerning tufts, so I can compare it to some other schools. I'm supposed to have an essay comparing tufts and uchicago by tomorrow afternoon, and the guy whom I was going to interview hasn't responded yet. So I need your help to get answered what I can. Here are the questions:
1-What are some of the more popular activities to do on a weekend, both during the day and in the evening? Is there ever a problem with not having something to do?
2-Do you feel like you have time to have fun?
3-How prominent are sports from a standpoint of participation, especially intramural?
4-Do you feel like there are enough clubs that suit your interests? If there arent, do you feel like it is relatively doable to create one?
5-How competitive is your school? Do people talk about grades a lot? If they do, what do you feel the general tone of the conversation is?
6-What is the **** culture at and around your school like? Do you feel like learning at your college is limited to the classrooms? How much do people have **** conversations or read important books during their free time?
7-Do you feel like there is a culture of discussion and challenging ones own opinions and beliefs in the student body?
8-What is the learning environment like? How much questioning is encouraged, especially in traditionally more rote classes like math and science?
9-From both your school and the surrounding environment, how much are you exposed to different cultures, especially from another country?
10-How easy is it to study abroad, especially in lesser-visited countries?
