Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
last 2 weeks. apparently calls may got out 1 week before the DAY. which would imply that they start calling people maybe on the 7th onwards. anybody have any positive news? or is it just an unnatural silence?
When I visited someone asked about that. They said they let everyone know on one day, they don't roll them out like some schools over a time frame. She said in the past they have told people early but thats based off when they are done. If all the decisions have been made they will let people know but not until all are made (you never know a school may forget a few but you get the drift).
Though she did warn that applications were up so they might not be able to let people know before the deadline like in past years. I would bet that they let people know ahead of time but it might not be a week like other years.
Only a couple more weeks till the ED deadline right, so who are the ED applicants.
I hope no one is planning on interviewing or visiting Monday or Tuesday. On the news this morning the forecast is for near blizzard like conditions in a foot plus of snow.
One of the main reasons I didn't apply! Don't get me wrong, I love to ski, skate, sled, etc. - but it starts getting seriously cold up there by October. And doesn't really warm up until June.
Second reason was lack of entertainment/media related courses and connections. Same reason I didn't apply to Darden.
For those of you set on Tuck, invest in a good strong pair of tall winter boots and a serious down parka...learn to love layers...
I am not sure if this has been discussed earlier.. any suggestions on how to approach the unique essay.. is it better to write about one solid experience or give 2 - 3 examples..my problem is i wud find it difficult to elaborate on just one experience for 500 words..
Went for the Winter Tucktails event last saturday. Met with some current students who are doing a global consulting project in Kualalumpur. They flew down to Singapore for the event. I must say Tuck really stands up to its reputation of being one of the friendliest and tightly knit schools. The students really wanted to help you know more about the school. Some of them were ready to help with my application and gave me tips. Most of the students end up in a IB or Consulting track . One more thing about Tuck is it is great for people with partners. I believe apart from its slightly remote location Tuck is a great place to be.
