Essay topic wise, nothing too out-of-box.

Just waiting for that on-campus interview sign-up thingy to go live.


I suggest you keep a close eye on that! I remember when I applied a couple years ago, the spots went very quickly. Last year they ran out and had to open up new slots. It's not like you won't get an interview slot, but it can be an added stress wondering exactly when it will be.

do you have to have the app submitted before selecting an interview slot or does the app just have to be submitted by the time you get to the interview?

Actually, you can schedule and give the interview even before submitting your app. I was able to do this when I applied in the Nov round last year, and doing this helped me get better material for my essays (based on class visits, student chats,..)

For those already in at Tuck, is it mandatory that we complete the self initiated interview before the deadline?
As Tuck does not offer self initiated interview off campus, what do people do when they cannot go on campus?

I know Tuck saiys that conducting the self initiated interview is stronghly recommended, but what if I can travel to the US? is it possible that they offer an off campus intervew reading my application?

If you're not in the US, you are not expected to go on-campus for a self-initiated interview (though it is a major indication of your interest if you do). If you decline the self-initiated interview, and Tuck likes your written application, the admissions committee will send you an interview request, which you can do over the phone. I don't believe Tuck admits any applicants without interviewing them (whether self-initiated or Tuck-initiated).

Thanks Ezekiel2517 for the info.

so you're saying that tuck offers interviews on campus (self or tuck-initiated) and interviews over the phone.
What about alumni interviews? (though I guess they don't have alumni everywhere around the globe as do some school...)

It's important to treat the interview as an opportunity and not as a threat. Definitely contact the school by email and call recruiting officers to make them understand that you are interested in having an interview. First it's a chance for you to make sure they notice your strong interest and effort in connecting with the school but it's actually a genuine chance to meet people from the school, either recruiting officer or alumni, and that is also a source of information that could help you make your final choice. E.g. in my case I had great discussions with alumni from Chicago GSB (although I wasn't ultimately accepted there) however I still remember how cold and arrogant was my interviewer from Wharton, to be fair one should never make generalities based on one meeting (especially because I have since worked with quite a few Wharton grads and it's been only smooth) but at the same time as a candidate you also need to make the best guess possible to evaluate schools and interviews definitely help you to have a better understanding of the school culture...this is a great opportunity and wherever you are make sure you make yourself known to the school recruiting team to ensure you will benefit from such interviews if this is possible, if not then the recruiting team will still be fully aware of your efforts ! :wink:

Does anyone know if Tuck starts revising the application before the deadline. Like Columbia, for example.
Thanks

Do you know when the on-campus interview request thingy comes alive? I've been checking it everyday for the past two months and it always comes out blank (or maybe my inputs are wrong?!)

Hmmm... it should be up already. I just checked and it isn't. If I remember correctly it was early August, so I would keep checking.
