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.

@ Prorsum: can you elaborate on these benefits?

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.

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?

I def recommend taking the dartmouth coach. The buses are quite nice and there is free wifi and power outlets. Fair warning, line up early. I came 30min before the scheduled departure and i was one of the last to board.

I only stayed a night since I was off to Boston the next day.

Couldn't help noticing but its really quiet in here compared to 2012 thread (about the same time last year). No more interview invites or campus visit experiences in the last few days?

I'd like to think that there are less number of applicants this year, although I know that there is a lot going on outside this forum! :)

Ha, I wish there were less. Nothing left for us EA guys to do but sit around and wait... I have 12/14 circled on my calendar and have wasted enough time staring at it. This is by far the worst part of the process.

Thanks for the transportation recommendations guys. I think I'm leaning towards renting a car and just driving up.. I know it's a fat chance, but anyone from NYC heading up on Oct 30th?

As others mentioned, Dartmouth Coach is a great option. Tickets do sell out fast so keep that in mind.

If you are planning to stay outside Hanover which is way-way more affordable than staying in town, then car is probably your best bet. Let me know if you have any questions about the visit. Happy to help.

I have already started my first essay and have a couple different drafts that are pretty strong. I am having a tougher time with the second. If I want it to be a classic failure essay or switch it into a short-coming and here is why HBS is perfect for me right now type essay.

I just got a response today about the conference. I was accepted. So I would imagine you'll hear back soon.

I am considering applying to Tuck but I am a bit hesitant as I haven't visited the campus. It seems that Tuck is big on campus visits.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend the info session in Toronto back in September either.

If someone can answer my question, i.e., Would it be worth applying to Tuck without visiting campus? Considering that there are only 250 odd admits every year. I am guessing most of them, if not all, would have visited the campus or attended the info session at some point.

Visiting the campus is a must. The applicant-initiated interview is "Strongly encouraged" and is a great opportunity to state your case in person as well as get a feel for what two years at Tuck will be like. Other than Duke and Kellogg, there aren't other top schools that offer this option.

Tuck wants to make sure you want to be at Tuck, and not just have an MBA with the Tuck stamp on it after graduation - what I mean by this is that they're trying to weed out the applicant who is merely applying to Tuck because it's a strong school. The Tuck experience will be very different from say Wharton, Columbia, Sloan or Harvard.

Also - 250 is the target class size...they admit roughly double that.

Hope this helps.

I completely agree with the above except for one caveat: I believe the class size has crept up to ~280 and, as was mentioned, the yield is about 50%, so figure about 550 admits.

Any clue how long do we (EA round applicants) need to wait before we hear something from Tuck?

PS: Non-US candidate.
