Hi,

Is TOEFL score mandatory for applying to Tuck? I took the test back in 2011 scoring 115. But I guess that will not be valid while applying this year. I am from India.

Please reply.

Thanks,

Hello Venkitaraman,

All nonnative English speakers are required to demonstrate English language proficiency (both written and verbal) by taking either the TOEFL®, the PTE Academic, or the IELTS™. Note that this requirement is waived for applicants who have recently lived for at least three years in an English-speaking country or who received a degree from an institution outside the U.S. where instruction is in English. Any English language test results must not be more than two years old. Comprehensive instructions for applicants are available here: http://www.tuck.dartmouth.edu/uploads/c ... 4_2015.pdf

Nancy

Hello,

Thank you for fielding admissions questions for Tuck.

I was wondering if you could offer any insight as to how people approach the Global Exposure/travel outside your home country write-up. Personally, as someone from the US, I have not completed any travel aside from a couple of short trips to Canada. That said, I do love to travel, and have done so in the United States, but I don't have any notable international travel experiences to date. I view Tuck as an opportunity to make that travel happen.

The above considered, do applicants generally outline their past travel experiences and that is it, or would it be appropriate to explain that I look forward to putting a new foot forward by traveling with Tuck? I did not know if it was frowned-upon to go somewhat beyond the scope of the question.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you have to offer.

Hello Trenton,

Thank you for your question and for your interest in Tuck.

The question regarding global exposure is intended to provide some insight into your international experience, which may include personal and business travel abroad, study abroad and fluency in a foreign language. If you do not have much experience to point to, no worries! Be sure to mention your travel to Canada, as well as any languages you speak. You may also feel free to mention that you are excited to expand your global experience while at Tuck. It's important to keep in mind that this is just one aspect of your overall candidacy.

Best,
Nancy Granada

Hello,

If we have submitted our official GMAT score reports to Tuck, should we see the test score automatically reflected in the online application portal under "test scores"? I submitted mine back in May so I want to make sure that Tuck has received my score in time for my EA application.

Hello!

Thank you for your message and for your interest in Tuck! The applicant will not see the test score automatically reflected on their online application. Once we have processed their application the applicant will see the status of their test scores as well as other supporting materials change to received. We should begin processing later this week or the first of next week.

Hi Team,
I am in a bit of a pickle here. I gave my GMAT in July and have sent the Official scores to Tuck. But I wanted to improve my scores and booked a slot in August. But due to my travel plans and permanent move to South Africa, I had to submit my passport for visa processing. Since it takes around 2 months for them to return the passport, I had to postpone my exam date. Now I have scheduled the next test date on 28th Sept and I am hoping that I will receive my passport by then. So here is the problem, my new Official score report won't make it to Tuck on time for the first EA round (5 OCT). It is possible that I can submit my Unofficial Score in the application.?
Tuck is my first choice and I really want to submit my application in the first EA round.
Many Thanks.

Hi
I wanted to to know if Tuck allows visiting without the interview.I have just started working on my applications and not prepared for the interview at this stage. I'm an international applicant and this time is suitable for me to visit. May not get the chance later due to work commitments.

Hello rollercoastermba -- due to the very limited capacity we have for visits and interviews at the height of the recruitment season, we typically do not accommodate visits without an interview between September and April. We may occasionally make exceptions to this if there are extenuating circumstances. Please feel free to email the admissions office at tuck.admissions@tuck.dartmouth.edu to inquire about options for visiting.

Hello @ashishvit52--your "official" GMAT score report needs to be submitted in order for your application to be considered for round in which you are applying.

Thank you so much for taking up our admission queries.

I am applying in the November round. However, I am in international application and will not be able to travel during this time. I *may* be able to travel in January. So wanted to know if I should postpone my application to a round where I may be able to travel or submit it now with the disadvantage of not being able to interview on campus?

"At Tuck, we believe that strong interpersonal skills are essential for success as a leader and a team member. Accordingly, admissions interviews play a critical role in the evaluation process and give us a more complete understanding of you as a candidate. Although visits are not a required component of the application, we strongly recommend that all applicants (including reapplicants and international applicants) schedule an interview on campus."


The last line has me confused. And the travel in January is also tentative. I work as a design consultant and usually my travel plans are not in my control all the time.

Would appreciate any help/advice on this matter.
