Wow! Considering that is coming from the horse's mouth, it's pretty undeniable proof.

These are the same people who say campus visit is not a factor for admission. I don't believe it at all 8-)
The fact that Adcom always want people to apply earlier (so that they have more control on the pool) makes this a biased comment.

Stick to your own schedule, apply when you are ready!

I think most schools say that, except that I believe Tuck AdComs have stated many times that they put emphasis on people who visit, that is shows the commitment to Tuck they want.

Someone asked that in the reception I went to, the AdCom (Kristine something) specifically said that if you do an Adcom-initiated interview, you will NOT be disadvantaged. But she did say "we encourage you to visit the school...etc" :wink:

all I am trying to say is that don't take the Adcom's words too seriously. :P

Oh, I agree. Most talk is just "AdCom Speak" but I do think they put some weight on it. No evidence to support how much though.

10% of spots in EA = 24 spots. Considering a yield of 50%, that's 48 acceptances out of a pool of 150-160 for an acceptance rate close to 33%.


Where did you get the 10% of spots from?

I just can't see Tuck lowering their standards just because you apply early. I guess if you are right on the borderline, it might help, but in those cases, there are so many other factors (which adcom read your app?) that it doesn't seem like it would make that big of a difference.

That's fine. I just thought you might have some inside knowledge! :wink:

I assume that each school has a target for how many admits they give during each round. But I also assume it's pretty flexible depending on the quality of the apps.

You get assigned a student guide so you have to go to the class that the guide has during that period. No choice.

My trip to Hanover is scheduled for the end of October and I will be submitting for the November round.

Is anyone else amazed at how quickly all of the interview slots have filled up online?

As I have already mentioned, I was the first interview of this application season. I also submitted my amazingly-super-awesome application about 2 weeks before the EA deadline. Can I expect to hear from them before their stated December 19th notification date? Do they ever notify people early?

Im so impatient.

I thought I saw a few people getting notified in early December last year for the EA round?

One thing worries me greatly about Tuck - with the current economic climate, I feel that a lot of business school students are going to be looking at boutique firms/smaller companies/outside of the box options, etc. I think that on-campus hiring with the usual suspects will slow down quite a bit.

It is significantly more difficult to network with these kinds of organizations when you are sitting in Hanover.

Re: Calling all Tuck Fall 2009 applicants! [#permalink] New post 02 Oct 2008, 10:52
When I was looking for interview slots a few weeks back they were completely filled up. I was lucky enough to get off a waiting list for one. (Even the option to sign up for the waiting list was gone in the last few days) There were a ton of people at Tuck so apparently not everyone is concerned about being in Hanover for 2 years. The same thing was mentioned when I visited Cornell. (The number of people at the info session) The competition this year just seems like it's gonna be nuts no matter where you are. =[


I thought that I read on last year's thread that Tuck didn't release decisions earlier than the deadline. Hopefully those people are wrong. I'm submitting tomorrow so it would be nice to hear early either way.

During my visit AdCom specifically stated that they will NOT be releasing ANY decisions before the deadline. In years past they have, but they decided it is unfair to some so they are releasing it all on December 19th this year.

Just came back from campus visit.

Amy Mitson said not much difference in terms of chances between the admission rounds. She did specifically say "avoid the last round at all cost"

That makes me laugh. Two different adcoms and two different opinions. I have a feeling that a good part of the decision making process is a mystery even to those making the decisions.

If you can salvage the last year's Tuck thread at BW forum, you will be up for some nice surprise
