I am not surprised that he got dinged by K and admitted by T. K has historically been a tough school to get an admit for Indians. Talking to a friend of mine at Tuck, it seems Tuck is looking to get more Indians in their class. This is attributed to its new found global initiative or something like that. Also, I think Tuck has one of the higher average GMAT's (711 or something)...

I wish Tuck was not so remote- I absolutely love the school but am hesitant living out in the middle of nowhere.

Still...looks like a lot of Indians have received admits this time around. The school has definitely shown some interest in getting more Indians- there is even a thread at b-week specifically answering questions from Indian applicants.

Oh well---maybe too late for the Jan round

Congrats to all the Tuck admits! Now I wish I was able to complete my essays for EA round, but I didn't think my essays were quality enough, so ended up submitting for November.

I interviewed late September. The visit was well worth it as I could really feel the strong community versus other programs.

I heard that if you are a fairly well rounded applicant and make the visit, you have a good chance of admittance to Tuck. Was wondering if any of the admits would be willing to talk about their admissions journey, if you did a self initiated interview, etc.?

Anyone know of how November round applicants are viewed, compared to EA? Is EA significantly easier to get in?

Yep, ED. I wish I could but the chances are slim. I didn't do a self-initiated interview and they did not invited me. The only chance is that they count my interview from the previous year (am a reapplicant) but that's unlikely Well, let's wait a couple more hours and see if it's a ding for me.
