There will be no classes until September. The second years only start Mid September I think, so I guess they wont schedule visits until at least then.

This will almost certainly apply for most schools.

So am reading the Tuck website a bit to better understand their Early Action option and how it compares with a November application.

here's what their website says about Early Action:
Quote:
What is Early Action?
The Early Action round is a great option for reapplicants or for prospective students who have completed their business school research and know that Tuck is their first choice. Early Action provides applicants with the certainty of learning in December whether they have been offered admission to Tuck. This offer is nonbinding, giving admitted students the chance to explore other options until the January response deadline. Any applicant who is accepted in the Early Action round and who would like to secure a spot in the incoming class will be required to submit a nonrefundable deposit.

Is it best to apply early or later?
It is to your advantage to apply as early as you are ready. The admissions committee cannot predict the quality of future applications, and is therefore inclined to admit well-qualified applicants early in the process. In addition, early application ensures that you will receive a decision earlier. However, it is important not to rush your application. We encourage you to take the time necessary to submit a thoughtful, well-prepared application. Regardless of the round in which your application has been submitted, the admissions committee will give full and fair consideration to your candidacy.


1) Does anyone know if there is a significant advantage to applying in the Early round as opposed to November?
2) It seems that with the Early round, you have to submit a decision by Jan 12, 2009. Do you think most schools will have released decisions by then? I could be getting my dates mixed up but I thought some schools didn't release until the end of Jan....

cheers,
ac.

I believe that Wharton, Chicago, and Kellogg should all release by the end of December for the most part. HBS, Stanford, and MIT most likely will not.

Wharton and Chicago have released before x-mas in the past but that is not a sure bet...with significant increases in applications its possible they wont. Kellogg does theirs on a rolling basis, I found out at the end of November I was admitted...Faceman found out after 5pm on decision day.

Many schools call people the day before or the morning of the deadlines.

Wharton's website says December 22 is the release date. I expect them to uphold that regardless of prediction application increases.

Those dates are good to know - thanks!

Came across this interview (http://www.mbaadmission.com/tuck/):

Quote:
When do you encourage applicants to apply?

It is to your advantage to apply in the earlier rounds. The admissions committee cannot predict the quality of future applications, and is therefore inclined to admit well-qualified applicants early in the process. In addition, early application ensures that you will receive a decision earlier. That said, we caution people not to rush with the application—it does show! Be thoughtful in your responses; be sure your application is the best it can be. Regardless of the application round, the admissions committee will give full and fair consideration to your candidacy. We do have spaces left for the last round.

thanks for the link.

it says 80% of students live on campus during their first year at Tuck. I thought all first year students were REQUIRED to live on campus.

There is definitely no requirement. Many students are married and/or have families that won't fit into the dorms. They have a community of town homes called Sachem Village which are a couple miles from campus for married students.

I think Dartmouth requires their undergrads to live on campus for the first year - maybe that's what you're thinking of?

I just got an email from Tuck. I had the following link in it.

http://www.tuck.dartmouth.edu/news/vide ... larke.html

I reported my scores to them from my 7/25/08 test. Do you think this is in response to that ? It would have been about 2 weeks ago. When do schools start to receive score reports?

Yeah, I started getting these emails a couple weeks after I sent my score reports to schools. I also got emails from other schools because I "opted in". Some of the emails were quite personal (from lower tier schools) and others more general.

I got the same email, but I haven't sent my scores to Tuck yet. I think I received it because I started the application.

I've been getting stuff from University of Tulsa after my 650. They have this marketing campaign going about your "fortune" awaits you at University of Tulsa and actually sent me a box of 4 fortune cookies! I thought it was clever, but then thought "Does anyone outside of Tulsa's city limits respect Tulsa's MBA program?

I let the dog eat the cookies. He liked 'em.

It's hilarious that you said this today because I just checked my email and receive an email from Boston University stating:

Congratulations! Through the Graduate Management Admission Search Service (GMASS), you have been identified as a preferred candidate for Boston University’s management programs. For the 2008 entering class, more than 75% of students with a similar GMAT score were admitted and received a LEAD Fellowship – valued up to $20,000 per year.

Boston University:
Middle 80% GMAT: 600 - 730.
Middle 80% GPA: 2.9- 3.9
US News Rank: #40

They are the pork to Harvard's Chicken...the other white meat. (the other MBA in Boston)....well, not even that. There's Harvard, MIT, Boston College, Boston University.

That's wierd. You have a higher GMAT score than I do jallenmorris. They must be figuring GPA into this as well.
