Guys,
I got dinged by Tuck in R2, but was offered a feedback session. Today, I received an email from the Admission Director with a subject line that said "Waitlist Feedback" and in the body she referred me as a waitlist applicant. For a second I thought that they incorrectly updated my status online, and I am indeed on waitlist. Also, the feedback said no that I don't need any major improvements. Should I contact admissions office?


Look at the bright side: I got waitlisted in the EA round and have yet to receive feedback. :P

So, I believe yesterday was the April round deadline, am I right? Guess nobody around here even bothered to give it a shot after the acceptance rate of the January round. Wtf happened to Tuck this year? Did everybody else discovered how awesome it is and decided to apply? I read on Poets&Quants that the acceptance rate went up last year compared to the previous year. My guess is that it's going to drop right back down again this year, though...

Does anyone ever reapply to a school a second time, i.e. 3 times total? I messed myself up with the round 3/april round trap and I guess didn't give myself enough time to improve (I turned a spot on the extended waitlist into a straight up rejection). But anyway, this whole cycle didn't really work out well for me and I was wondering if it was worth giving Tuck another shot when I'm applying to schools in the Fall (assuming I do a lot to improve this year).

Is that even possible? And if so, does it look dedicated or pathetic?

I know I will have to broaden my net next cycle, but I'm not totally ready to give up on Tuck, so I thought I'd ask.


I know folks who got into Tuck on their 3rd attempt. I would encourage you to re-apply in the EA round if you are truly passionate about the school.

I want to say congratulations except that you made it that much harder for me to get off the WL :-D

I'm kidding, congrats!

Howdy folks, long time lurker. I am currently on the WL but received an offer from a firm at a major raise (40%+). This is a major change to my application, and I'm considering whether I should tell Adcom about this offer as a means to reaffirm my dedication to Tuck. I think schools definitely consider 'marketability' and this would strengthen my chances with Tuck. Would this be a mis-step?

You should definitely point this out to them but the tone of your email should be more towards how this reaffirms you as a solid candidate (Recognized as work) versus coming across as bragging and/or give them discomfort that you probably wont join now given the raise.

With deposits due soon, can you guys update your status to matriculating to let those of us on the waitlist know what our chances look like?

Well, in that case I guess it wasn't very polite of them to call you. The least they could do is walk over to your office and give you a hug!
