To all you guys who filled out the scholarship form, how did you approach the biographical essay? Broad overview of your background or did you focus on just one or two aspects? Did you include a section on your post-MBA goals?

It seems really open-ended and I'm curious what the rest of you think.

Thanks!

RF


Ja it's really open-ended. I called and asked the Fin Aid office if they see the rest of the app or just this essay when making financial aid decisions. They indicated that they "sometimes see the whole app but that's rare". So I figured it was okay for this essay to do a broad overview of my background and then include a para at the end on my goals....seemed a bit redundant with the rest of the app but if the Fin Aid office doesn't see the rest, then it's most likely fine...

hope this helps :?:

Reapplicant here.

BTW, Solaris and others who are on the fence, I would strongly encourage you to visit. Tuck is a love it or chuck it kind of place. I visited, and since I have a family, I found it a great place for a family with a kid. Being international, my spouse anyway will not be able to work in US ( lack of work opportunity for spouse is a major concern for many US students while chosing Tuck). Dartmouth moreover offers free audit of classes for the students' spouses.


But it is very easy not to like the place too. One must take into account that one will spend at least 20 months there. It is really remote. I had never visited US countryside before and I was up for a shock ( for example after getting off the bus at White River Junction at 7:00 pm, I was the ONLY person walking, it was creepy). During one day ( the day after I reached) that I was there I bumped into many guys in a pub whom I saw at school in the morning. So, it is either the same set of people everywhere or the dark forest and the long road.

Did everyone receive a detailed schedule before their visit? My interview is at 11 but I'm not sure if I'm supposed to show up at 11 or earlier in the day.


cereal255,

I scheduled my interview around a month back. And immediately I got an email with the details..This is what the email says - I will suggest that you call the Admissions office asap and talk to them. They may resend you the email

"
Schedule:

9:45 AM - Arrive at Tuck
10:15 AM - Class Visit
12:00 PM - Lunch with students
12:45 PM - Tour of Campus
1:30 PM - Q&A Session with member of the admissions committee
3:00 PM - Interview

Parking:

Visitor parking at Tuck is extremely limited. We recommend parking by the Medical School in the Dewey Field Lot. To get to the Dewey Field Lot go around the Dartmouth Green and take a right onto North Main Street which willl take you past Tuck Drive on the left. Follow North Main for another minute and take a right onto Maynard Street followed by a left onto College Street. Dewey Field Parking is on the left. Tuck is about a 10 minute walk from Dewey and there is also a shuttle that comes every seven minutes. PLEASE make sure that you allow plenty of time to locate parking on campus, particularly if you arrive mid morning. We can not allow students to enter class late so it is imperative that you arrive on time to the Admissions Office. When you check in for your visit you will be asked to provide information on your vehicle so we may register it with the parking office. For more parking information and a parking map click here.

If you are considering bringing your partner with you to campus or just have a few questions regarding partner and family life here at Tuck, please contact Meredith Magee. Meredith is the president of the Tuck Partners Club and would be more than happy to coordinate your partner's visit. She can be reached via email at tuck.partner.club@dartmouth.edu.

Directions:
Please go to our website at : http://www.tuck.dartmouth.edu/directions.html
For a complete campus map of Dartmouth College visit: http://www.dartmouth.edu/~maps/.

We look forward to seeing you at Tuck!
All the best,"

*Interview complete!!*

Interview Questions I was asked: (I think some of mine might have been different b/c I manage engagement teams, etc)
- Why MBA?
- Why Tuck? Why now?
- Describe your career path to date, why have you done whatever you did?
- Tell me about a time when someone on your team was difficult to work with, what did you do to address the issue, why? As the manager, how was your role different than if you were just an ordinary team member?
- When you manage a team, what are the different components you have to balance? How do you keep the team working wee? How is a large team different than a smaller one from a managerial side?
- WHat are you most proud of on your resume?
- What do you do outside work?
- What ECs do you want to do at Tuck?

Words of wisdom from the Q&A session:
- essays should have clarity of purpose, be sincere, show evidence of a desire to collaborate/give back to Tuck
- GPA and GMAT do not reflect leadership ability or potential, they're just a part of the app
- make sure you proofread
- watch your tone - make sure its reflective of your desired tone; also, don't be too cutesy or too academic

Other random notes:
- I was the only female prospective student there (given there were around 20 or so of us, I expected 2-3 girls but no, just me)
- around 75% students do intramural hockey on the tripod team (they offer classes for people like me who have ice-related coordination issues)
- there are tunnels! they connect the first year dorms to the Tuck building so in winter you don't have to go outside if you don't want to!

hope this helps :)

Question!

How did you guys fill out the self-reported transcript form? I'm having a heck of a time trying to figure out how to enter my transcripts.

Did you guys put each semester in a separate "sample term"? If so, how did you enter courses that ran a full year? Did you put it in each "sample term"? How did you calculate the GPA?

I took summer classes too, but if I start to break each term up, I don't think I'll have enough space since there are 15 "sample terms".

I was thinking of cramming each year into a "sample term", but then I'd have to start inserting extra cells.

Help!

RF


these forms are really ridiculous. What I did:
- I put each semester in a separate sample term.
- I put summer classes as their own term and called them "Summer Term"
- My transcript from school calculates my semesterly GPA so I just used that. I put the total GPA at the top of the form (ther's a field for it)
- I think it's okay if you have more sample terms - just add more! I think if they clearly follow the format, you're fine.

I hope this helps!!

For those of you who are looking at Tuck and thinking about the social scene, Tuck students are starting to hold cocktail parties with some of the undergraduate sororities, which have been pretty well attended.

Granted, most of the girls are still 20 or so, but nevertheless.


Just thought I'd put that out there.

I'm currently on the fence, very interested by the school but need a little more convincing about the social aspects of life at Tuck (er, too many married people anyone :-D ). Hope to speak to Tuck alumni at a local "meet and greet" event and visit campus in September, and then consider applying EA or R1.

I love New England and everything, but I'm going back to school as much for the experience and networking as I am for the education, and I need to make sure I will be comfortable in the school environment at Dartmouth.

-- edit --

I'm dropping my plans for an application to Tuck. The location is just a bit too isolated for my taste.

I am contemplating as well...on the fence right now.

The sole reason for me is the good placement statistics in IB - am not wild about the forests, would rather prefer the city..so still deciding!

I haven't visited the campus yet but considering I attended undergrad in the armpit of Oregon (Klamath Falls -- *queue dualing banjoes*) I can't imagine this being any worse. I actually prefer a more rural, close-knit community...although the ratio of married to singles does worry me a little bit.

Count me in...good luck everyone!! :-D

I am likely in. I visited Hanover a few weeks ago. This school is very unique. Make sure that you can handle it before you apply. Coming from a big state school, I felt that the personal attention and the inability to hide or have privacy may be a refreshing experience. Also, culturally, I definitely fit in at Tuck.

The only downside to keep in mind is that 2nd years are not eligible for on-campus housing. A lot of 2nd years literally live like 10+ miles from campus in the middle of the wilderness and have to drive in to Hanover. You will need a 4WD vehicle for your 2nd year.
