Mine was pretty casual. Something between khakis and cargo pants, and I wore a dress shirt. No Jacket or tie. I felt it was appropriate for the city I live in (and since we were meeting in a coffeehouse). Plus, I am never really an "overdressed" sort of guy. So, had to be true to myself =) My interviewer was the same.

On a different topic - does anyone know more details about the on-campus housing? in particular prices/procedure to signup/can one actually get a place or will one graduate before your name comes off the waitlist, etc. Oddly I cant even find the price of the previous year online anywhere.

Thanks, westsider... I'll be having my interview in Singapore in the Regents (4 Seasons Hotel) and the interviewer works @ BCG. Supposedly he will be coming straight from work. Wondering if consultants normally wear suits and ties to work :roll:

Anyhow, probably will just go with business casual.

I would suggest going Business Formal. I prefer to go over dressed rather than under dressed.

Hi guys,

I just had my interview in Singapore yesterday. Interviewer was a Tuck alum currently working for BCG.

We had the interview in a quiet bar in the Regents hotel. I ended up wearing full formal gear but my interviewer turned up in khakis and shirt :-)

It was nice... normal... resume-based mostly. He asked about my experience doing ibanking in Vietnam... expressed a bit of concern for my relative lack of experience (as compared to other classmates) and asked how I would address that. About 20 mins was spared for questions and he was very enthusiastic and detailed with his answers.

Couldn't tell if he had a good time or not. He looked a bit tired, probably because it was at the end of the day. Told me he wouldn't know anything about Tuck's decision for my case either and that he normally hears from the interviewees when they ask for feedbacks :-)

In any case, I hope I show him enough how much I want to be part of this community. I have come to be very impressed by Tuck's connection and care for each individual applicant (applicant, not admitted student) over the last few weeks. Reminds me so much of my time at my alma mater, Amherst.

Onto the long wait now, best of luck to all of us.

Hi longatum thanks for sharing your experience. So how do you feel about your performance overall?
I had my interview yesterday also and I am not happy with how I did, I was just really tired after a very stressful day at work and I didn't sound as enthusiastic as I should have been :(, oh well ... what is done is done :done

I think I did ok... It was not an exceptional interview - just a "normal" one (quoting my interviewer's word when he talked about his interviewing exp.)... it was a combo of the fact that he seemed tired and I was a bit, too, after the long flight. But given all the conditions, I think I did my best.

Good to hear you completed yours, Darden. I know it's very hard not to but I don't think we should read too much into the atmosphere of the interview. It's hard to guess how the interviewer feels about us. A friend of mine had his interview for Chicago a while ago. Thought he didn't do well at all and ended up getting an offer (with $$$$).

1 month is a long wait, but random posting and continuously hitting F5 at work should get us through the period just fine, mehehehe...

Good luck to everyone...

Does anyone know when the "Ding" notification will be sent to the applicant that is deemed "unfit" for Tuck? For Wharton it is Feb 21. I am curious to know if there is such a hard date for Tuck. I am yet to see anything of that kind and any inquiries to the Tuck AdCom seems to come back with a response that is so plain vanilla (I called it the Mother of All Boiler Plate Responses) that I completely dropped the idea of even calling them over the phone. This wait is a bit unnerving and annoying. But is there any other choice.. :lol:

Good luck to all those waiting for the Interview Invites and congratulations to all those who got it

I dug through last years forums and the impression I got was that everything comes within 1-2 days of the deadline. I guess if you haven't interviewed by the deadline then that might be an early sign?

Maybe I should remove myself from the R2 roll call on this thread, after the disappointing experience called 'an interview' yesterday :( ... I cannot believe I have come so far to blew everything in about 30 minutes :(

Mate,
You can't lose heart at this stage.. Irrespective of how you feel about your interview yesterday, the interviewer might have a totally different opion.. For all that matters, his/her opinion might be diametrically opposite to yours..Don't panic yet..Compared to many of us who are still awaiting an interview call from Tuck, you are in a much better shape..If anything, you should be happy that you are not losing your finger nails as I've been chewing up all day.. If that doesn't make you happy, the fact that my F5 key on the keyboard is now almost broken..Its been that much agonizing..So, don't lose your hope yet.. :lol:

Stay positive and you may never knew unless you read a letter or e-mail notification that announces your selection..So, Good luck..

Good luck darden! I'm sure it wasn't as bad as you think!

On a different subject, for the financial aid essay - I am thinking the response is similar to what I would have given to the "tell me about yourself" interview question? Any thoughts?

I don't know if I should even bother to write the financial aid essay since I have almost lost all hope for Tuck :(

But if I were to write it I think I will structure it more like the 'personal statement' that I wrote when I applied to undergraduate college, because it is more of a biographical statement with facts rather than just letting someone know you

wizardofwashington than you for trying to make me feel better :). But I think a ding is a ding, whether it comes before or after the interview the result is still the same = no Tuck next year :(

My problem is that my hope has not totally died, so I am still in the waiting mode the same as you ... Waiting is difficult no matter if you are waiting for an interview invite or a decision call.

FYI there is 29 days, 12 hours and 13 min to decision, ... the good news is that the number of days starts with a 2 now, yayyyyy!

Dude, you're being too dramatic and that doesn't help with the overall mood. Cheer up... the whole admission thing to top schools is just unpredictable... you never know. Fight the fear, fight the fear, mann... we're gonna be all right :D

Guys,

Does Tuck send out thank-you e-mails ppl after interviews? If yes, I haven't received any... does that mean the interviewer has not submitted his feedback?
