I know how you feel!!!!!
I'm counting down the days, minutes, and seonds till the D-day...
I'm super excited but scared at the same time..

It seems that we applied for many same schools!!
Good luck to you!! hope we both become T '14! :)


We did apply to many of the same schools. Unfortunately, the 30% increase in Tuck applicants makes me nervous. I wish you the very best. Hopefully on Friday we will rejoice together when we receive our acceptance phone calls.

Danjohn, an adcom member addressed the 30% increase in another forum and stated that this info isnt shared until the end of the complete admissions cycle. This figure is entirely speculative.

Speculative? - probably. Yet I think ~30% increase in EA makes sense - for two reasons:

1) GMAC reported that a lot of candidates rushed to take the test before the format change this year. Folks who would have otherwise put off until July or August had their scores ready before June and had ample time to work on their apps. A corollary that follows is that early apps % must have been higher at other schools too (we just won't know until the cycle is over).

2) Tuck has been ranked 2-1-2 over that last three years by Economist (up from 6th and 5th in 2008 and 2009). Although I am not sure how big these rankings are locally, I can speak for internationals who take these rankings very seriously. I'm guessing the increased visibility and consistent rankings led to more apps from candidates outside the country.

Granted all this is based on theories and inferences and there is nothing we can do about it even if it were true :) All I wanted to say is that there are factors that support this figure - I wouldn't be surprised if an adcom person had a slip of tongue and said that out loud :o

Ha ha, anything to keep our anxious brains from going crazy in the void :roll:

I wish I could transport myself to Friday for few minutes and then get back to focus on work today before my manager decides to retract his recommendation :wink:

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.
For most jobs at a company with an established recruiting program, the location of the school does not matter much. There are certain jobs that require heavy networking (finance industry); however, the networking expectation on a local school versus a distance school is different.

I think location comes into play for niche or off campus jobs, such as startups. Location also comes into play on post-MBA job location. This is because the network will be stronger, the closer it is to the school’s location. I would imagine Tuck students would have an easier time finding a job in the Northeast region than in the Bay Area, for example.

2 more days!!!

I just saw on the first page that 1 person has already denied?
I wonder if it is by mistake or if Tuck has released some candidates?
Does anyone know?

My guess would be that the person who has 'been denied" was an international candidate who never received an invitation to interview, and thus put two and two together. However, the official decisions go out at 5pm ET Friday so I dont think s/he has "offically" been denied at this point...

Good luck everyone! This would be my first acceptance, which would be extremely nice since my luck on the interview front hasn't been so stellar!

Ditto. So calls for Tuck could start coming out this afternoon based on last year? Although I guess if Kellogg has taught me anything, its to disregard last year's approach.
