Applying to TUCK [#permalink] New post 27 Dec 2005, 19:57
Hi Scott,
I am planning to apply to TUCK for MBA2006 session.As you know TUCK has 4 rounds so i wanted to ask is it advisible to apply in third round i.e Jan 12 round?As compared to Harvard and other B-schools that have only 3 rounds, chances of applying in third round and getting admitted are quite less.Does the same apply to Tuck also ?

regards

I think it's reasonable to view Tuck's 3rd round as most other schools' 2nd rounds. I don't know Tuck's distribution of applications (i.e., the number of apps that they receive in each round), but I suspect that they get the bulk of their apps around the same time (the Jan. deadline) as most other schools. So, you should be okay if you apply in the 3rd round.

Hi Scott,
While applying to B-schools, there are usually two types of main essay questions. One, your long term and short-term goal, why an MBA and why us? Secondly, describe a situation where you faced a crisis, how you overcame and what you learnt?

I opened a s/w company of my own during my under-graduation and due to some reasons it got closed down. To restart my business venture is my long term goal and i need MBA to learn Entrepreneur qualities. But, closing of my venture was the biggest failure of my life so in both the essays i should mention about the starting and closing of my company or i should use different examples in both the essays?

I would use different examples if possible. From what I can tell, I think the story abour your startup is more relevant to the "Why MBA?" question, since it ties directly into your long-term goals. Hopefully there's something else that you can use for the other essay question.

Hi Scott,
I wanted to ask that while writing essays is it advisable to start or end an essay with a quote.I mean using some two or three line quotes in an essay,especially regarding your long term and short term career goal essays?

This is fine, although be careful to make sure that the quote is actually relevant to what you're saying in your essay. Many applicants who use quotes make the mistake of using something that sounds smart or profound, while it actually doesn't do anything to answer the question or help adcomms know who the applicant is.

My preference is for an applicant to always use his/her own words over someone else's words, but as long as the quote helps do those things mentioned above, you can use it.
