5 of my favorite tuckies are WLers. It happens. Hold tight! You're in better (comparative) shape because you were an EA waitlist.


Do you happen to know when they got off the waitlist?

The thing I'm most disappointed about is that I won't get to go to ASW even if picked up after April 21. :(

Also, I'm sure this kills any chances of living on-campus during the first year.

Waitlisted. Does anyone have any indication how many and when (March vs July) ppl move off the wait list? Agree with @CobraKai, bummed about ASW. And applying for financial aid.

The last few years the Tuck waitlist seems to have had VERY little movement. From being on the extended waitlist last year, it sounded like only a handful were accepted from the waitlist. You never know though as Tuck may be tweaking admissions to make the waitlist more relevant. Getting on the waitlist means you are competitive though so hang in there!

True that. I spoke with Allegra during one of the Tuck Admissions Receptions in India, and she mentioned that last year, almost everyone was released from the waitlist...

Congrats to everyone who got in! Hopefully I'll meet some of you at admitted students weekend.

To those on the waitlist - I know your pain. Just hang in there.

Hey yall,

I already submitted my app and chose to include an optional essay. I'm simply curious about everyone's perspective on this part of the optional essay: "Complete this question only if you feel your candidacy is not fully represented by this application".

I read this as: If you feel like you haven't told the whole story, fill in the gaps here. Many admissions advice services strictly recommend against answering this question unless there is an obvious flaw in the app, but not many optional essay prompts are worded this way.

Any thoughts? Just trying to pass the time til decision date :P

What did you write about? I tend to agree with the consultants, unless you have an obvious flaw to address I would leave it blank. If there is something so important about yourself that you absolutely must tell them admissions committee you should try to work it into one of the other essays. I never applied to Tuck so maybe others will disagree with me but personally I wouldn't have done it.

In my opinion, if you have a good reaon for writing the optional essay (and you should explain it clearly) you should do it, they just don't want candidates to use it as an additional long essay and give them more work.

I wrote about the stark difference between my undergraduate major and my work experience; it was something that I had left unexplained in the rest of my app, and the essay fit quite well with the rest of them, and was unique to Tuck.

Anyone else write optional essays that weren't necessarily explaining a flaw, but instead rounding out an app?

At Wharton I read thousands of additional information essays and most were not needed and actually detracted from the effectiveness of the overall application. I would read what was presented and ask why did they need to volunteer this information? In your case, I would have read what you presented and concluded the same thing - a lot of candidates have this disconnect and admissions is smart enough to fill in the blanks. In fact, a high proportion of candidates work in industries that do not relate to their undergraduate studies. This is particularly true if you studied at a liberal arts college.

I spoke to a member of the Tuck adcom at an information session and she emphasized that the optional essay should only be used to explain exceptional circumstances and should not really be used to round out the application.

Thanks for the insights, everyone! :)

I guess we'll find out in a couple of months if I was right or wrong :wink:

Make sure to apply for financial aid in time. I was accepted off WL last year with scholarship money.

I used my optional essay to briefly explain why I could not have my current manager write a recc (I was applying in confidence). Both Stanford and Tuck admissions staff (@ panel discussions) recommended using the optional essay to write a few sentences explaining the omission of a current manager recc. Obviously a bit of a unique circumstance, but that is what I used it for.

Congrats! It's good to have options. Kellogg dinged me so it made my decision to stay on the WL a no-brainer.

congratulations :) amazing programs.

I don't think it is much of a decision (compared with acceptance at both! ). If I were in your position, I'd wait till I get an acceptance at Tuck and then decide or just hang on without pulling off from the WL. Till then, I'd figure what both places offer.

good luck with the decision.
