1. Harvard kids aren't cool enough to get into parties at Tufts.

A university full of the friendliest people who are intelligent minus the cockiness, who are full of personality, character and lots of great talents.
Just like all my friends I met there.

Tufts University is a private university located in Medford, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston. The school is frequently identified with internationalism and its study abroad program and is home to the world-renowned Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. The school ranks an impressive 27 on the Best Colleges 2006 list by U.S. News & World Report. Today, Tufts University is widely regarded as being one of the top universities in the United States and is considered a Little Ivy. In 2006, the university accepted roughly 23% of over 15,300 applications to its undergraduate class of 2010.

Tufts is a school on the rise and is very selective. Students who used to be admitted to Tufts 30 years ago are now commonly rejected, prompting them to create the false "Tufts Syndrome." Many Tufts students were accepted to other prestigious colleges, but came to Tufts because after visiting they realized it was a better school that had more to offer than just rankings.
Tufts student: I turned down (insert name of prestigious school here) for Tufts.
Prestigious School student: Why?
Tufts student: Because Tufts offers a nurturing environment, accomplished teachers, friendly students, a beautiful campus, and a world-class education without the pompousness and needless-competitiveness of your school.
Prestigious School student: Oops. Your right, I'm not happy here. What was I thinking?

The Ugly Friend Theory. girls travel in groups. there is almost always (90% of the time) an ugly girl in a group of 3 girls or more. it is unusual to find that all 3 (or however many) are hott, or even attractive. as the number of girls increases so does the possibility that there will be an ugly girl or ugly girls.
-look jd...those girls are hott.
-no matt, jill and ashley are hott. gretchen is ugly and smells like a trashcan.
-ya...shes an example of T.U.F.T.

Smart but lazy people. Tufts people are very bright but did not feel the need to outwork their high school peers in an extraordinary way, which is reflected in them going to Tufts, instead to school were people are smart and not lazy, such as Princeton, LSE, Oxford and the likes.
John is smart and ambitious, he went to Princeton to become an amazing computer engineer. John is always the first at work every day and leaves last.
Bill is smart but lazy. He didnt work enough in High school to get into Princeton but somehow managed to get into Tufts.
One day, after college he wakes up and comes up with a great idea that involves a website. He hires John to help him. Bill retires at 35 and plays golf with his billionaire peers, John keeps figuring why he did not have the same idea.
