Sorry about the dings everyone. I'd like to believe that whatever happens, happens for the best.

It's a fun to look after 5-10 years at the unhappened things and the change they brought into our lives and just smile what we could be without those changes.

Sorry about the ding guys.

As with most things in life, the good stuff comes only after testing our patience with stumbling blocks along the way.

I am sure, your admits are on their way.

well, sorry to hear about the dings. but i think that the applications we submitted were our best works at that point in time. props to everybody for giving their best.

and all the best to the other applicants.

as for myself. I think I'll wait 1 year before reapplying to Tuck. Strengthen my profile, make VP, save some money for a visit... :)

Hi, i had a question regarding the international exp essay. Should we mention the regions and time period we have traveled or elaborate on the experience it self which would be a mini essay in itself

Tuck Alum Interview [#permalink] New post 17 Dec 2007, 22:23
I just finished a Tuck alum interview. All the questions were standard. It turned out that the interviewer had a similar interest that I had listed in my resume. So he started the interview by asking about that. I do not want to read to too much into this interview. Lets just hope the end result turns out well.

Tuck essays are so damn difficult to write :) so little guidance in the essays questions themselves, just general questions that you have to spend hours thinking if you are approching the questions in a right way :((

oh especially that 'constructive criticism' essay :((( I still have no idea what to write. I don't want to write about positive negative like for example 'my boss told me to not work so hard' because I think this essay should be about something that you did bad, therefore clearly negative and not positive negative :) and the examples that I can think of are positive negatives :((((

well i think it need not be a professional example. Just try to think of something that happened in personal life that you used to improve yourself. Maybe your parents told that you are very disorganized and do not keep things in the right place. You could expand on that and say how you used that to improve yourself.

I ended up writing about a personality criticism that reflected on my professional peformance :)
I think my criticism essay sucks :) I think I am basically saying nothing with a lot of words, but I like my sentences they seem motivational :)... the point of my essay is shallow :(((( but at least I wrote something!

Just submitted application second round through the consortium (http://www.cgsm.org/). I already did my interview with Tuck, about a month ago when I visited for their diversity weekend.

I'll post information later on.
