How crucial is it to visit Tuck?

Do I need to visit?

If I visit after submitting, does it still "count"?


Tuck is a huge school on fit. They prefer US based candidates to venture out to Hanover for the applicant initiated interview. I would say visiting is huge. If you can only visit after you submit, I think that would be fine. I would just make sure you register for a tour and class visit.

I am assuming you have not interviewed yet. I would just shoot a note to admissions, telling them why you could not visit prior to the deadline, but will be visiting on X date. If you could arrange your interview then that would be great. Not sure how helpful this will be, but from all the research I have done Tuck wants to make sure you know what you are getting into. Hanover is not the easiest place in the world to get to, so they want to see people make the effort to get to know the school.

Hope that helps. Good Luck!

Waiting for a interview call for november round :(


hang in there, am waiting too. Browsed through last three years' Tuck thread, interview invites for Nov. round seem to go out by 1st week of December. It seems like this is the week for invites, little to no hope from next week onwards.

I am an EA applicant who completed the Applicant initiated interview and am now waiting for the final decision.
I just got the following email from Tuck

"Thank you for applying to the Tuck School of Business. Your admission decision will be available at 5:00PM EDT on Friday, December 16, 2011. On that date, you will see a link to view your online decision letter when you log on to your application account.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at ******.

Sincerely,

The Tuck Admissions Team "


Did anyone else get a similar email ?

As per last year's forum, the accepted people get a phone call and people who get rejected get an email etc.

As the admission team told me that I have to go online to look fro my result, does it mean its a DING for me ??

Can an existing student please confirm if they ever got a similar email before getting the acceptance email/phone call.

Thanks



Everyone - RELAX. Tuck sends this email to everyone that applied. It's a formality. It is in no way an indicator of whether you'll be admitted. Those people who are admitted will begin getting phone calls on Thursday. Til then, don't worry about silly emails like this. You're all fine - for now at least.

For accepted people, will calls start rolling out on Thursday itself?



Yes, calls will start going out on Thursday. Someone earlier in the thread said they began making calls around 12pm EST on Thursday last year and calls continued to go out until Friday around 3 pm.


To repeat my earlier question, does anyone how its done for international students? Do we also get calls considering the time zone problem? Or should we just wait for mails?


To answer your earlier question, you get a phone call, just like every other admitted student, so long as your provided your relevant country code information and phone number

cant concentrate at work :(

We cannot control the result, only how we react to the outcome. I want to be calm and restful, but I am incredibly nervous and restless. I admire the people who can just go about their day not worrying about whether or not they will be admitted. All I can ask for now is to hope for the best and if it does not work out with Tuck (which unfortunately think is going to be my news) that I stay positive enough to work on my R2 applications and keep it up my hard work both at my job and the applications.

I wish you all the best of luck. I know we all cannot get in. However, for those of us who are not admitted, I wish you the best wishes in keeping a positive attitude to work towards getting in somewhere awesome.

T minus 25 hours till final result (but whos counting down right?)

Has anyone requested to join the facebook group to see if they get accepted? They might blindly let people in, but perhaps only those on the accepted list. Just a thought...

New to the forum - love this place. I applied in the November round and just logged in to my application status today to check-in. I was a little alarmed and have a two-part question.

1) Although my "Submission Status" says "Complete" on 11/8 (before the 11/9 deadline), my "Application Status" says "Completed on 12/2/2011." Is this bad? I didn't make any updates on 12/2 and I submitted everything on time (including my recs). Did anyone else have their applications show Completed well after the deadline like this? Cause for concern?

2) Each item of my application is itemized with details under the "Application Status: Completed on 12/2/2011" heading. In the Transcripts section it lists my undergraduate institution and then "Received (Not Official)." However, it does not list my Study Abroad institution, for which I submitted a second transcript. Any thought on why this transcript wouldn't show up there? Should I call?

Thanks for the help!


1.) I called about the same "complete" issue you're concerned about. It is simply an indication of when your application was processed. No cause for concern.

2.) I don't believe there are multiple transcript "completion" items. If they have specified "complete" with regard to your transcript, you are fine. They will reach out if you are missing anything.

Is there anyone working on the scholarship essay?

The prompt is a short bibliography essay. I am wondering whether this will be considered separately from or together with the other application essays? Should I repeat what I have mentioned in the other applications essays? Basically, they are quite thorough and covered everything that I wanted to convey to the Admission Committee.

The scholarship essay is quite short for a comprehensive bibliography. So what should I focus on? My background, my undergraduate study, or my work experience?

Thanks for any recommendation as this essay is due on 11th.


This question came up during my visit with an admissions person. The people that evaluate the scholarship essays DO NOT see your application. They are completely separate processes. As for what to write...not sure I can help you there...I still have to write mine!

Did i just read that if you haven't initiated an interview on campus you're looked at unfavorably? Thats the first i'm hearing of it......I applied R2 to Tuck and did not initiate an interview,...but due to various work and family issues i simply couldn't have. I don't see how its fair to penalize me for not taking advantage of something thats billed as "optional". Somebody please clarify this,...I can see giving applicants who initiated an interview a slight boost,...but taking points away,..so to speak,..to people who didn't initiate an interview seems unfair.


This may come off as callous, but there are a lot of videos, interview transcripts with adcoms and even the Tuck blog reiterates if you are within the US they are basically expecting a visit. Some basic research probably would have led you to this conclusion.

And I disagree with the contention that it's 'unfair'. Each school has a unique selection process and Tuck is making a substantial investment in potential students... what other Top Tier school allows candidates to initiate interviews? They want to know you aren't just applying because they are ranked high... they want to know you want to be in the middle of nowhere for 2 years and you're going to be a good fit with potential classmates.

I understand the work and family bit; but you still have time to visit if you really want to go to school there. The adcoms are very reasonable and will do their best to accommodate if you explain your situation.

I agree ... Tuck is definitely unique in terms of its culture. But I'm just letting one admit sink in for now and make that choice in March (if I do get admitted to Tuck) :)

Well then that makes a difference, doesn't it. :) Sorry for not realizing this before I posted.
I don't believe that Tuck has released information on exactly how it processes school-initiated interviews. Do others have this info?

Hey, you're Member of the Month! Congrats! Yeah, I know had I been to Hanover being an international it would have really impressed them. i wish they had extended the dates into Feb, I just can't make it in Jan :(


Thanks - I felt real special with the whole member of the month thing, lol
So, if you could make it in February, I suggest you call adcomm and say that. Others have posted about doing a self-initiated interview post-deadline to positive results. Particularly as you're international. Though, fwiw, during my interview there was a guy from Shanghai who came just for a 24 hour period to interview at Tuck. That's dedication...

Eragotte, I would say go for it but wait for the January round.

I have a similar profile as yourself (3 WE, 750). On my visit to Tuck I had the same concerns that you have but met a bunch of students who entered with 3 years WE. If money is a concern and Tuck is your top choice, I would suggest applying to Tuck and Tuck only next year. Worse case scenario, you don't get in and apply to Tuck and a few others the following year. Tuck looks favorably upon reapplicants so it won't hurt your cause.

The reason I say January round as opposed to the first round is because that extra 4-5 months can actually improve your application. I applied to Columbia ED and had a great interview but was dinged with the feedback that I could use more work experience. Sure enough, a month after my ding I was promoted and now have two indirect reports. That could have been the difference between an admit and a ding at Columbia.

Thanks so much for the reply, that is very helpful advice. Again, since money is tight, do you think extra work experience will help me receive scholarships? Or is it mostly based on marks, need, community involvement?


Eragotte,

If you have a chance you should check out the Tuck Scholarship Page and see what is available.

When I visited back in November one of the students remarked, 'Dartmouth is a very rich school' <-- By no means does that mean they are just opening up their coffers to any Tom, Dick or Jerry but the do offer money to those who they feel can add value on a level that is more than just academic. So if you feel you have something truly unique to contribute in your extracurriculars or even a refreshing perspective it would be worth it to apply next fall. I know you said you had kind of a vanilla job, but I tend to believe those that can point to the fact they are doing either something really special in that job (or the more likely case) something special outside of it stand a decent shot at scholarship consideration.

Good luck & Cheers!
