Can anybody give advice on the best place to stay - heading out to Tuck for an interview.

I've seen the hotels on the school's website, but they're crazy expensive. Does the school have a hookup of some sort on a discounted rate

I stayed at the Courtyard Marriott Lebanon (~5 mins away from school) for around $130 in October, if I recall correctly.

I agree with LadyRoadWarrior. If you want to truly understand culture and have time/$ to visit twice do it. It will get you better prepared for the interview.

I wouldn't worry about it. Admissions is pretty good about the resumes and during busy times they receive a lot of them. Just have a copy of it with you to be on a safer side.

Booked the Six South hotel for $99 bucks. At first they said they could do something around 150 and I said I'd look elsewhere at which point I go the "on the whim" rate. Apparently walking distance to Tuck so I'm ok with it. Now on to actually prepping for this thing!

Very rustic. There is a free shuttle that takes you right to the Dartmouth Coach station.

Not going to lie, its gonna be a big change moving from SF to Hanover. I couldn't get a taxi when I arrived (3pm on a Wednesday)

Same. Seems the deadline for Jan Round interview is Jan 31, only a week away. If any internationals get invites, please let us know.

Hey,
Same for me. International applicant based in Europe. I did apply in Round 2, didn't receive any feedback from them at the moment, and was wondering if it would be useful to visit the school in February (and ask for an interview in the same time). I guess they are more restrictive in granting off campus interviews, compared to Kellogg for ex..

Has anyone done the interview yet? Mine is Friday, and I'm leaving work early tomorrow to fly out to NH.

I've read that the interviews are fairly standard (ask about resume, why Tuck, why MBA, why now, questions about fit, etc). I'm definitely making sure I'm prepared in that respect, but anyone have a different experience? I read that the on-campus interviews are done by second year students. A co-worker just went and said that the interviewer was very friendly, which is heartening.

Though I'm nervous for the interview, I am really excited to go visit Tuck!
