I think those admitted receive calls, if not its an email and application status update on their app portal.

Just over a week, can't wait to find out!

This one will be a surprise either way, those of us who did applicant initiated interviews are totally in the dark.

Oh Bart Scott... if only your desire of not wanting to wait helped the Jets at QB... (I am, embarrassingly, a Jets fan)

Thanks! It was a pleasant surprise, I must say :)

I haven't visited Hanover unfortunately. I hope it won't affect my chances too much. I was given the option to interview via Skype.

They wont expect you to visit or hold it against you since you are so far away.

And evidently they send out an email one week before the official release date/time to 'remind us' (like we've forgotten!) that the decision is coming the following week. Nonetheless, don't freak out if/when you receive an email on Friday.


Just got the "heart attack" email, but I was able to remain calm and carry on thanks to the heads up!

@ Prorsum: can you elaborate on these benefits?


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.



Tuck's location is a HUGE liability, one that makes it not competitive against the likes of wharton/booth/columbia. While people at those other schools can easily interview for jobs in NYC or Chicago, Tuck students have to take a long trek just to get to a major city. This makes recruiting extremely tough.

Yeah, I'd think the extremely strong alumni network would mitigate any of the negatives regarding the location. From my admittedly outsider experience, no way a Wharton/Columbia grad would go out of his way to help a current student. Booth maybe, but that's a stretch.
