Revelations at the New Delhi information session

1. almost 50-60% of the class is decided by the November round. Offers made are more in EA than in any other round
2. January round is the biggest in terms of number of applicants - is hence also the most competitive if you put point 1 in conjunction here
3. The admissions team member said that rather than apply in January, she would urge the applicant to try EA next year, given how statistically the chances are better
4. Tuck prefers to meet you face to face, a Skype is a last resort ALWAYS

Agreed, plus there are tons of people on here with no admits so way to rub it in their faces. When you're comparing between top 3-15 schools, it's mostly about personal preference anyway.


I think alot of us have been in the zero admit club before(and we know how it feels getting dinged by all the schools you applied to) so its unfair to say asking for a opinion in anyway signifies "rubbing it in". I think he/she is just trying to gather the combined knowledge of other forum members, which I don't feel is wrong.Also, after all each of us are going to invest a massive $250K(including opportunity costs and personal sacrifices). Its imperative we ensure we invest all that $ in the right school.

Did most other applicants receive a response to the "Thank You" email/letter sent to your interviewer after the interview?

I often tend to read way too far into these little things which likely hold very little meaning but was just curious.



I know it's proper to send a thank you note after an interview, but do you think it really matters in these cases, since they interview so many and probably get deluged with notes? I plan to email my interviewer, but I was surprised to see that others of you are also emailing the admissions people and others. Just curious if people are doing it to be better safe than sorry, or if anyone knows that it definitely matters.


I would recommend not fretting and fawning too much over the content of the thank you note. It is common courtesy to send one, and common sense to keep it short. The easiest way to look at it is by putting yourself in your interviewer's shoes. Would you really care that much whether an applicant you interviewed sent you a thank you note or not? Personally, I know I wouldn't. During the course of the interview, I would have made my mind up about her/him as a potential student of my school, and would have sent my report soon after as well. The applicant's thank you note would not cause me to change my decision about her/him.
Moral of the story - Send one in, if only to calm yourself, but keep it as short and to-the-point as possible. DO NOT use it as an opportunity to further your candidacy and add some more points about how awesome you are. It may be true, but at that point, it doesn't matter.

Hope this helps

Cheers,

Hey everyone, just wanted to let everyone know that I just got the call informing me of my acceptance. I've been pretty quiet on here, but reading everyone else's postings has been essential to keeping my sanity. I hope everyone else receives good news today or tomorrow and I look forward to seeing you in Hanover.


Congrats! Where are you based?


I'm located in Chicago and the call came from a 603 area code, as expected.

Hi!

I got the call from Tuck this afternoon! VERY excited!
I'm an international applicant in Latin America.

What a day: I was admitted at Tuck and UCLA in the same day! One of the happiest days in my life!

I'm crossing my fingers for you guys! I've been a silent reader of this forum, and you really helped me deal the anxious feeling of waiting admissions decisions.

For an international applicant such as me, visiting campus might be logistically as well as economically unfeasible. At the same time, Tuck lays a lot of emphasis on campus visits even for international applicants.
Anyone who can comment on how much of a drawback the inability to visit can be in an application?



Hi Chintamani,

I was also an international applicant to Tuck last year (and now part of the class of 2014). I did not visit campus before applying. From what I gathered from my conversations with Tuck students and adcom, while they do put a lot of emphasis on campus visits, even for international applicants, the adcom understands that for some applicants it can be very difficult. So the drawback for someone from Canada not visiting might be greater than for someone from Thailand for example.

I am in Asia myself and did not visit campus or interview before submitting my application, but eventually they invited me to interview and gave the option for a Skype interview. So if you are very far away, don't worry too much the drawbacks of not visiting in person.

Hope this helps.
