Applied in the January round and got an interview invite yesterday.

I've heard that Tuck interviews are all about 'fit' - how they really want to see how well you fit into Tuck's culture, your team work etc.

Is there anything else that Tuck particularly focuses on in the interviews? Would love any help I can get! Also I'll be interviewing over skype.


Congratulations! My advice would be - focus on teamwork, know your strength and weaknesses well, demonstrate your knowledge about and fit with Tuck and, needless to say, communicate smoothly. [Tip: Refer to Clearadmit guide online]

A word on 'fit'. As per my understanding of the process, 'fit' is a very important, perhaps even an added admission criteria at Tuck unlike some of the other schools. It is important to convey how one's history exemplifies he /she will fit into the culture of the school. However, it's not the be all, end all and comes only after other aspects of one's candidature viz leadership, teamwork, intellectual ability are sufficiently demonstrated.

Hi,
Got interview invite for on-campus or Skype. (jan round)
Anyone knows if the skype interview is video or audio only?
And if video, Should i dress business attire?

There are a few threads with tips on this forum, but here are the cliffs notes: yes to video, dress in business attire (including pants!), make sure you are in a quiet room, think about wearing tasteful headphones so there is no feedback, and check the video beforehand to make sure what's behind you looks professional.

ifif 2012, I disagree with you on both: sending notes and the fact that interviewer should respond. These points create unnecessary pressure for both applicant and interviewer. If you didn't send a thank you note or didn't receive a response, don't worry - it's a nice to have but in the end it DOES NOT matter. Focus on what's important - your application!!! Just a personal opinion...

I applied the Jan round, and didn't receive any response now. Since the Nov round will begin to release offer, is it reasonable I assume game is over?


If I remember correctly, the invites last went out end of last week (31st Jan or 1st Feb?) I think they will take a break from then till let's say the 10th, between which they will be calling admitted students in Nov round and also wrapping up that round. Hence, you may hear from them post that. This is also probably the reason why people who have sent emails to the adcom to schedule a Skype interview havent heard back as of yet.

I wonder if this massive blizzard bearing down on Boston will cause them to close the admissions office? It's supposed to be the worst storm in 2 years; school has already been cancelled for tomorrow and state and municipal workers were told to take the day off...

Hi guys! Congrats to the new admits. It's only snowed a few inches in Hanover and its not currently snowing, so I don't expect the storm to keep adcomms from calling to welcome new Tuckies to the family.
For what it's worth, I got my call last year at about 4:30pm (ding emails were released at about 5pm). Hang in there!

Hi Guys this is my first post on the forum, I just had a school initiated skype interview that I think really well. If Tuck invites you for an interview , is the spot your to lose?Thanks:)

Depends. Are you international/US Military deployed?
If so... then I think the Tuck interview invite is just like other schools' invites (we like you enough to learn more).
If not... then I do think its more of a positive sign. I was asked to interview (I had actually already scheduled my interview at the time of invite, but thats another story). From what I understand of Tuck admissions, an invite is less common and typically indicates that Tuck thinks you might fit. I wouldn't look at it as "yours to lose"...but certainly a good sign.

Others can chime in too.

Tuck, please say yes!


Don't forget: Tuck is going to send you an email on March 8 that'll make your heart skip a beat. It's just a friendly reminder that decisions will be available by 5:00PM on March 15 - as if you didn't already know that.

Hi. I have a friend who interviewed on campus last week and received an email from Sara Cohen asking for another phone interview. Does anyone know what this could mean?


It means it probably didn't happen. See the 5th question from the bottom.

Hi guys, I had the same situation. I did my on-campus interview early Jan, and received an email for another phone interview just now. Does anyone know what is going on here?


Few days ago I browsed the 2012 "Calling All" topic and the similar situation was mentionned there. Someone from China, I guess, told is was a kind of English language fluency testing, just a general chat.

But if you are located in the USA, this is not probably an issue for you, so maybe there are some other reasons for this.

Hey future Tuckies.... 3/15 is fast approaching. Just a reminder that you *should* expect to get a call if you're admitted. Typically calls start on Thursday, but they go all the way until Friday late in the afternoon. I got my call at about 4:00pm Hanover time. Typically Thursday calls are more international and Friday calls are more domestic, but this isn't a hard and fast rule.

Hanover is area code 603

Good luck!

Chewing my way through some books right now. Just finished "Why We Buy?" (very bad IMHO) and now on to "Predictably Irrational", which has been much better. My goal is to get through at least 3 more books - one each about finance, economics/stats, and technology - before school starts. If anyone has any suggestions let me know! I prefer story-based business anecdotes a la "Outliers", "Innovator's Dilemma", "The Soul of a New Machine", etc.



try freakonomics - both editions.. amazing.

go through this thread: books-to-read-improve-verbal-score-and-enjoy-a-good-read-76079.html
and this
mba-books-good-books-to-read-prior-to-mba-74557.html

My personal favorite for 'story-based business anecdotes' is The Goal by Goldratt - in which he explains the Theory of Constraints (operations). I don't read many books, but it is probably one of the best business books I've read, particularly because its an easy read.

[edit: the second thread does not talk highly of my choice. I think I should read more books :) ]
