Amy Mitson said not much difference in terms of chances between the admission rounds.


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


I've read that last year's gmatclubbers saw the same trend, more accepts in R1 than R2. However, I would guess that the people submitting R1 may have been a lot better prepared and submitted better apps.

I had my interview on Monday and it went great. Same questions as everyone else - walk me through your resume, why mba, why tuck, teamwork. No curveballs, nothing unexpected, very straightforward. Loved Tuck and Hanover. No great insights on admissions, except that there was a massive number of prospectives there. I also got the chance to talk with many of the prospectives and they were definitely the Tuck type. Everyone was sociable, friendly, etc. All the prospectives were basically friends by the end of the day. haha. Very different than some of the more cutthroat city schools I've visited where the applicants all seem to be competing with eachother and not friendly towards eachother. At Tuck, if you interviewed first you gave tips and pointers to the applicants that hadn't interviewed yet!

Are we suppose to include college jobs/internships in the employment section or just post-college full time work?

Re: Calling all Tuck Fall 2009 applicants! [#permalink] New post 09 Oct 2008, 18:04
My Tuck interview is on Oct 13th. In the email confirmation that I received, I was asked to RSVP by 9th Oct. So yesterday, I sent an email to Admission Committee, in which I included my Resume and confirmed my visit. To this RSVP email, I got an automated email from Mailer-Demon @Tuck. It was a standard non personal email.

Now I am wondering whether anyone really checked my email from admission committee. I was expecting that I will get an email mentioning my interviewer name. Did you guys, who interviewed, have the same experience ? Do you think I should call the Admissions office and confirm my visit ?

I don't think they will send you an email with the interviewer's name. But once i sent the resume , I got an email mentioning that they received my resume. If you got a similar note then don't worry about it.

I sent in my resume, but did NOT receive an email besides the standard auto-reply. Nonetheless, they did have the resume for my interview. Also, when you arrive, you will receive a folder with all the Tuck info and the name of your interviewer.

Good luck!

Hey filmcity, Glad to know that someone else is visiting on 13th. I will be in a Charcoal grey suit, sky blue shirt, and either an Orange or a grey tie. I wear specs and I am of Indian origin. Hope to meet you. Don't get discouraged with no email. I think your interview will be on. I view the automated email which I got as redundant , if that makes you feel better :)

Hi folks,
Does anyone know how Tuck financial aid works? It seems that the scholarships are need based...what's the salary range that falls into that bucket? I'm just trying to figure out if it's worth applying for it...

cheers,

Thanks for the encouragement..

Funny thing is I got an email from Tuck , saying that whether I would really visit, since they did not receive any communication from me :(

Anyways, I saw it today after reaching NYC and have sent them my resume for the third time

You know even back in Sept when I visited, the office of admissions was super busy. There seemed to be only one lady handling all the prospective students, the scheduling, etc. The day after my interview, I even got a letter saying "Sorry you couldn't make it" and had to call and get the status corrected! :shock:

They were pretty nice about, admitted there was a mistake, and all was well but still made me nervous!

I wonder if the same thing is happening to you? They're just busy and confused?
cheers,
ac.

Re: Calling all Tuck Fall 2009 applicants! [#permalink] New post 11 Oct 2008, 21:30
So there's a section in the Tuck app that asks you about courses you might take prior to matriculation...is there value in filling out this section? or does it harm your app?

I'm planning to take courses in micreecon, calc 1 before starting but don't want to write it in the app if it will make the adcom think "well why didn't she take these before the app?"

Does that make sense? I might be completely overthinking this but really want to make sure I'm not overlooking anything :)

thanks for your help!

I was curious about the same thing. I definitely plan to take a stats course before I start but I have not registered anywhere yet. Would it be OK to just mention that I intend to take such a class? Or will they want to confirm it in any way?

Thanks!

yup i did mention the courses - I spoke with their admissions office, they said that it was better to list the courses than leave room for doubt...
I haven't registered for these courses yet but do know that if I am admitted, I plan to take them.
