thanks nikhilsrl and Tuck2013 for your replies.

i hope that my failure to initiate an interview before the deadline will not adversely affect my application. if i were to be invited to an interview, i would definitely make it happen.

indeed, for older applicants it makes the applications more challenging becoz goals must be more realistic. given the current dismal job market in US, it is harder for international, older applicants to present the goals as realistic.

As far as I understand, Tuck encourages international applicants to visit the campus for interview etc but they also understand that its not possible for everyone to do so, specially International applicants. So in my my opinion it should not be that big a deal (may be a small disadvantage).
Also once someone is invited for an interview, I believe Tuck gives them an option of on campus and off campus interviews. so then it shud not matter if u come on capmus or choose to attend it in yr country (assuming its scheduled there).

Anyway, this is just my opinion, so take it for what its worth .....

Thanks for the info Cano.

I ended up registering for Sept 29 as there was no class, student lunch, campus visit, Q&A etc for the early oct interviews. I figured if am going there, would rather spend more time understanding the campus life etc.

Does any know of a good hotel nearby ? I know there are 2 right on campus but they are somewhat expensive. Anyone knows about Chieftain Inn ? how far is it from campus ? etc

A Google Earth path shows 2.7 miles. I guess all the other info you can get it from sites such as kayak, hotwire, etc.

Hi Current Tuck students:

A quick question about essay word limit. Tuck recommends 500 words per essay. Is it OK if one of the essays is longer (700~800)? I've had two jobs; and both's experience is related to long term goal. That's why that essay is longer.

Also, is a car necessary in Hanover? Thanks!

Just signed up for my interview/visit for October 17!

This will be my 2nd time coming up to Tuck as I came in July for a summer visit. I'm excited to see the school in action. Also, last time I was there I got in the night before, and then left right after, so I didn't have much time to explore the Hanover area. I'll have more time this time, so I have a question for any Tuck students/alum: Is there anywhere I should definitely check out during my time there? I'm trying to get the full idea of what it would be like living in Hanover.

Thanks!

I am an International applicant from India and planning to apply in Round 1.
My total work experience is 8.5 years, predominantly into IT with the last 2.5 years with a major US bank's technology center in Mumbai, India.

Does anyone have any idea about the mode of interviews for candidate located outside the US of A?
Is it necessarily a Skype or do we have an adcom/alumni member flying down to conduct the face to face interviews?

I have never had a Skype interview before and so want to be prepared if I manage to get an interview call.

Thanks in advance to all those who will reply to my query. All the best everyone!

Try to be closer to 700 and you should be okay (assuming this is for essay 1). Make sure, however, that your other essays stay near the 500 word count.

A car is not necessary unless you plan on living far from campus. There are always students, with cars, willing to help out other students, without cars.
