There is no one way to define a "good" college or university. Admissions criteria, acceptance rate and average GPA are good indicators of how competitive an institution is, but they don't tell you how happy or successful students are. There are a few statistics that can give you a good idea of how satisfied students are and how well a school supports its students.
Let's take a closer look at to get a better idea of what Tufts offers and if it sounds like a good fit for you.
It is extremely difficult to get into Tufts. In 2021, Tufts accepted just 16% of all applicants. In 2021, just 3,770 out of the 23,127 students who applied were accepted.
Retention is the number of students that stay enrolled at a school over time. This is a way to get a sense of how satisfied students are with their school experience, and if they have the support necessary to succeed in college.
About 92% of students who start at Tufts return for their second year of college. Around 94% of students who started at Tufts earn their Bachelor's degrees within six years. The average six-year graduation rate for U.S. colleges and universities is 61% for public schools, and 67% for private, non-profit schools.
Job placement statistics for recent graduates can give you a sense of the return on investment a school offers.
Cost is another important factor when choose a college. Some colleges may have high tuition, but do a better job at meeting students' financial need. Tufts meets 100% of the demonstrated financial need for undergraduates. First-year students that attend Tufts full-time are awarded $50,302 a year in financial aid, on average.
In 2020, students graduated with an average of $25,065 in student loans for each student with debt. For context, compare this number with the average national debt, which is around $36,000 per borrower.
