I got dinged guys :( .Was away holidaying during the long Chinese New Year weekend. Was too down to come visit the club and update you guys. So now got dinged at all my R1 schools. I am not sure what is lacking in my application. Got interviewed at 3 out 4 schools for R1 and got dinged at all- not even a waitlist. So i am not sure if its the interview thats killing me or belonging to an oversubscribed Indian IT pool thats spelling the death knell in a year where application numbers are up by crazy.

Did you ding letter specify anything about feedback? I believe they offer feedback to about 10% of denied applicants in July/August. Two people dinged on BW indicated they were offered feedback for a reapp.

Oh, sorry to hear that. Tuck is extremely hard to get in this year and especially for Indians. As far as I know no Indian got in in November round because 15 were admitted in the ED round. Anyways, good luck with your R2 applications!

Sorry to hear tht. It hurts even more when one is interviewed and then rejected. I read in the other forum, that there were no R1 admits for Indians. Apparently Tuck admitted far too many Indians in ED and is looking to balance them in other rounds. Being in the Indian IT pool is a definite disadvantage.

Makes me wonder if being in the IT pool (but not Indian) is also a disadvantage...

Based on this article, the Indian student strength at Tuck has to be around 30 including both years. So, 15 admits in EA round and a few more waitlists in Nov-round certainly cover the Indian applicant demo(I hate the word 'quota').

Sorry about that man. What schools have you applied to in R2? I am sure atleast 1 of them will come through. Hang in there.

Re: Calling all TUCK 2008 applicants [#permalink] New post 12 Feb 2008, 22:26
I'm curious - for those that did interviews (alumni or otherwise). What was the interview style? Was it:
1) conversational
2)"tell me about a time when you demonstrated..."
3) confrontational (It happens. U Washington was like an inquisition)

Thanks!

I interviewed with a 2nd year student. It was a mix of 1 & 2. Conversational when we got to XC activities. He did ask me a mix of teamwork, leadership & conflict questions.

Alumnus interview. It was nice. Very casual. Turns out I had actually met my interviewer at an Alumni event some time back!

How did you guys dress for the alumnus interviews, given they're normally quite casual? I'm thinking business casual... jacket and dress shirt but no tie.
