Why Tuck has so many essays/short answers to write:( Not to mention the another 500 words essay for international students to apply financial aid.

I visited/interviewed at Tuck on Monday (the 19th).

It's a pretty amazing place. If you haven't visited, I highly recommend it.

From what I recall it's nothing out of the ordinary. Know your resume and know Why Tuck. I'm not sure what the schedule is but what time were you asked to arrive on campus?

I am visiting Tuck on Oct 18. I was looking to save some money on hotel. $120 at Chieftain Inn seems a lot for 6 hours of sleep that I will get there. If anyone is in the same boat, and want to share the room and split the cost, PM me.

Thanks.

P.S. I don't snore :)

My interview was at 11am, and the setup was as follows: 830 - 1000 class visit, 10-11 nothing, 11 am interview, then lunch w/ whole group (i.e., all who were there that day), then tour, then Q&A.


I've had no issues with Tuck Connections, spoke on the phone w/ my alumnus connection in June sometime. Great guy, just fyi. They all seem to be.

Anyone have any ideas for the international experience mini-essay?

"Briefly describe all experiences you have working, studying, living, or traveling outside your home country. Include the location, purpose, and length of stay. If relevant, reflect on how these experiences have shaped your world view. (Limit 250 words)"

It's throwing me for a bit of a loop because I've spent a lot of time abroad, and it seems like it'd be impossible to address each individual trip. I think what I'll end up doing is grouping trips together by geographic area.

I have a question about the essays. A setback I experienced determined my career goal.
I was planning to say "My career goal is XYZ. I am interested in this because of a setback I had. I dealt with setback in ABC ways. This taught me PQR and this is why I want to do XYZ." The 3rd essay asks for setback, but I already accounted for it in essay 1. Any suggestions on how I should keep the two separate?


If you're using "Setback A" in the Why MBA/Career goals essay, then you're probably going to want to think of a "Setback B" for your setback essay.

Alternatively, if you think Setback A is far more compelling than any other setback you can think of, you might want to use it for your setbacks essay (and not mention it in your Why MBA/Career goals essay).

Just my 2 cents.

During my visit/interview yesterday I asked Christie St.John, Admission Officer, how one should answer this question and she said that if there is a lot of travel experience one should pick a few examples and tell why they were the most meaningful to them. I hope this helps.

I am in the same boat...I have not visited any foreign land but, on a different note, my boss is an American and we are jointly leading a product for past 3 years and we talk/skype almost every day...fortunately,he has agreed to give me a reco....but I am not sure if the admissions committee would take that as "Global Experience"...please somebody suggests...

Congrats on submitting your application. My apps are ready just waiting for GMAT to send my official scores. Tuck doesn't allow students to apply until they have received the official scores by the application deadline.

Oh nice, yeah I had GMAC send them the scores back in August, and then I sent an email over to Tuck Admissions to confirm they got the scores, which they did. Now its just waiting...Feels good to have the essays done and not keep thinking in the back of the mind if I should adjust them or not :)
