That's what adcom told my group during a QA on Monday. I wouldnt expect anything before then, but you never know

I submitted my app yesterday. The application status at applyyourself shows submitted. However, I didn't receive a confirmation mail from the school after submission, unlike other schools. I thought this was unusual.

Did any of the folks here receive a confirmation mail from Tuck admissions after submission?

Oh dear! The mail was stuck in the junk folder! Funny, since I'd got numerous mails from Tuck earlier and all of them (including notification of recommendation submission) landed in the inbox without trouble.

I hope this is not a sign of things to come.

Yeah, double check your flags, for some reason it looks like there are 2 email adresses, tuck.admissions@tuck.dartmouth.edu and tuck.admissions@dartmouth.edu

Thanks! The anxiety is adding to the total number of sleepless hours! I'm not sure how I'm going to last for another 2 months

Received an invitation to interview with Tuck - either on campus or through Skype. I was pleasantly surprised with the quick turnaround (submitted application on Oct 10). Anyone else here who received the invite?

Congratulations! That indeed is a fast turnaround by the Tuck adcom. Endearing to see the first interview invite reported here and that too for an Indian applicant. All the best and let us know how it goes.

You should explain why you didn't schedule an interview prior (i believe they give you a space within the app to do that)

Thanks for your reply.
Is that considered negative?

I am waiting to hear from other schools before I make a trip to Tuck still I can still submit my app. but if no applicant initiated interview considered negative then no use of submitting app. So I am not sure what I should do!:(

From my visits to Tuck and at admissions events, I never heard adcom's explicitly mention it would be considered "negative" for not scheduling an interview. That said, given Tuck's small class and niche community, I would say it wouldn't look good if you didn't have a legitimate excuse for not scheduling an interview.

Honestly, you should visit the school regardless. Tuck is a complete contrast to schools in urban locations (CBS, Wharton, etc). I initially hesitated on applying to Tuck before visiting, but now I see the benefits of a small class and tight-knit student community.

Not sure. I applied and I am waiting to hear back. I would love to attend the conference. It would be great to get back up to Hanover and spend some more time with students and faculty.

Did you apply, and if so have you heard anything back yet?

I applied last week, but haven't heard anything yet either. I wish they would get back to me, since I need to make travel arrangements, rent a car, etc.

Interestingly, the woman at the Admissions Officer who used to run it, Karen Marks, recently left Dartmouth to start her own admissions consulting company. But she's still listed as the contact person for the Diversity Weekend.

I actually know one of the students running the Tuck Diversity Weekend this year. I'm going to email him next week to see if he knows when decisions will be sent out, if I haven't heard anything. I'll post on the board and report what I learn.

At my job now, almost everyone went to HBS/Stanford/Wharton/CBS/Haas, so I have a good idea of what the 2-years would be like at those schools. Most urban schools with large classes have a "commuter campus" feel. Commuter as in classmates who live within city limits or region and pretty much have their network set up. CBS is known for this and I hear non-NYC locals have to play catch-up with building their network/friends, etc. I could see this happening if I go to Haas/Stanford, since i'm in SF and I probably won't move out of my rent controlled apt within the city. And I probably won't go full speed into network building events and activities. Just my 2cents on that.

From talking with Tuck alumni in SF and current students, I just felt that student community was not as competitive as in other schools i visited (HBS, CBS, Wharton). Everyone seemed to know each other and they would crack jokes with each other during classroom discussions. I feel regardless of which elite school you go to, you'll get the same caliber of academics. So with that, I felt that 2-years at Tuck would most def. help me build my network and become inspired to try new things/career prospects. Frankly, there is not much to do in Hanover so you have to be creative on keep yourself entertained. And most likely everyone will be on campus during the weekends. So when Tuck alumni say they are very close with their classmates, I believe that.

I went to undergrad in a very large school. It took me a quarter or two to navigate through the school and find clubs/orgs to join. Since bschool is only 2 years, I feel anytime spending digging a niche would be valuable time wasted. Thus I'm a bit hesitant on large bschools.

I got my job now through a chance encounter. That said, I'm hesitant on the career prospects at Tuck. I'm weary on the bulls*t some schools praise about and Tuck is not innocent on that. I think about it like this. Say I'm at CBS and I happen to meet a guy at a PE shop at a networking event. Next day, I could be in the office interviewing for a summer internship. I don't see that happening at Tuck given how far the school is from where most students will be ending up. I feel at Tuck, most recruiting events would have to be fully organized and scheduled. Not a bad thing though, but its a check mark against Tuck.

There are pros/cons at Tuck, but I think you'll have to make an extra effort to land those lucrative jobs. Something I would def consider doing if I get admitted.

For those who have visited from NYC - do you recommend taking the Dartmouth Coach? Also, did you guys have to stay 2 nights since it seems all of the bus/train options leave early in the morning?
