Don’t worry about tufts syndrome. Get an offer on the table is your first priority and it is always competitive. If you get waitlisted, there are tactics to help progress still. But if you get an offer that’s higher choice than the waitlist uni, then easy solution.

Be well researched on the school, program, teachers etc and actively lean in.
