Q: I wish to become active in the fight against Tufts Syndrome. What are some other colleges it has affected?
A: Thanks so much to everyone who has cared enough to support the cause and stop Tufts Syndrome once and for all. I went back to College Confidential to see if there was a happy ending for the Tufts Syndrome victim who was waitlisted at Bard. No news so far, but I did find a comprehensive six-page thread listing other colleges with signs of Tufts Syndrome: WashU, Lehigh, UC Davis, UCLA, Johns Hopkins, Northeastern, Kenyon, Grinnell, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Swarthmore ("infamous for this") and GW (by far the college mentioned the most). One student reported getting "tufted big time at Reed" and another said he "got the tufty at BC". And happily, one poster reported that Tufts Syndrome no longer exists at Tufts, so your efforts have not gone unnoticed.
Q: I have been googling for about 30 minutes now and Fallbrook College doesn’t even have a website!! I mean, it’s like it doesn’t even exist!! I am going to contact these four kids right now and let them know—what a scam!
A: As long as you’re contacting the Fallbrook applicants, please let them know that they don’t exist either. And if they did, they wouldn’t have names like Robert, Mary Ann and Kenneth. Those guys are from the class of ’74.
Q: What are your restaurant recommendations for Amherst and Ithaca?
A: I will list those on a slow news day.
Q: Is it true that this blog is moving to the Huffington Post?
A: We’re in negotiations – I have requested that Arianna write a college recommendation for CJ, and I’m waiting to hear back.
