You will have to ensure submission of an official transcript if you were admitted. Also, it is not your undergrad school's file that you submit when applying, but Tuck's own self-reported transcript form.

There is no deadline for school-initiated interview in Tuck, so keep your spirits high!

I've just submitted an additional recommendation from my favorite NGO.

I hope that helps.... if i don't get accepted, I'm going to write them a long and sad sob story about how they broke my heart. Maybe if I can move them to cry a little bit, they'll reconsider and give me an admit ... :P

man.. but it's time to move on... I'm with Ross and Chicago. Chicago's essays are 50% done. Application 50% done.. not sure how my recommenders are coming along.

I hope i don't have to apply to Chicago / Ross.. Tuck is my true love :cry:

Self Initiated Interview [#permalink] New post 02 Nov 2007, 05:15
Hey Folks,

I had my self initiated interview this week and wanted to share my experience. I interviewed with a 2nd year student and it was very relaxed. Essentially, I just walked her through my resume and then answered a few canned questions such as "tell me about a challenging work experience," and "tell me about a cross cultural experience."

Overall, it wasn't too bad of an experience and actually helped me develop a more informed perspective on Tuck.

let me know if y'all have any specific questions.

Thanks,

Jamie

Hanover [#permalink] New post 03 Nov 2007, 04:12
Hanover was amazing... It really is in the middle of nowhere, but I think that it would really foster the development of strong relationships with your classmates... And a lot of what I've heard from older MBAs is that the network they develop in school is the biggest thing they take away from school.

Def. glad that I went and checked it out. It'll help a lot with my application.

No love for me either from TUCK. Only change I see after three weeks is that my admission status stands completed as of 10th Oct but I was able to see it only today. Its time to move on and any ideas when does TUCK send out interview invites for international students who have not been able to visit TUCK

The constructive criticism essay is getting me. All the examples I come up with are terrible. They are either the "don't work so hard you make others look bad" or too old (college). I am sure there is something good just can't think of it. I have written half a dozen versions with different ideas and none just pop out.

This is worse than the MIT ones which were frustrating but at least my paths were pretty easy to figure out for those.

River,

Could you spin your "don't work so hard" into something broader? Perhaps time management, work / life balance, or maintaining relationships with coworkers? Just an idea... I'm kinda expanding my example into a broader context... Meaning that the criticism was specific but it forced me to reflect on a broader piece of my abilities.


Also, anyone out there know how tightly I should be concerned about the essay length recommendations? I know it's 500 words, is that really a recommendation or a requirement?

They don't have a set requirements...they are much less strict about it from what I was told.

Tell me about it. The constructive criticism essay is killing me. I would prefer to have a failure/setback essay.

I did. It cannot be submitted online. You can either send a hardcopy by post, or fax it. I faxed.

But the deadline for scholarship app submission has already passed...

I actually liked this essay, I used it to bifurcate one leadership example and show growth. As Helg said the deadline has passed, about three weeks ago if I recall. G'luck.

Guys the scholarship deadline for ED is gone by. The date for R1 is towards the end of November (I think its the 24th or 26th).

Round 1 applicants don't get nervous about scholarships they are still available. I think the people who applied during ED are confusing us as other ED applicants.

Sorry, riverr, my bad. Previously on T website was only one date for scholarship app - 17 Oct. Now there are proper deadlines for every round: http://www.tuck.dartmouth.edu/admission ... index.html
