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!



I recently had my on-campus interview at Tuck. It was with a second-year student and pretty laid back. No curveballs. I was asked how I would contribute to Tuck, both inside and outside the classroom, so have specific clubs and examples in mind. Most importantly though, the Tuck interview, unlike Sloan, is about fit rather than accomplishments. Make sure your answers tie in teamwork and community, which are core principles behind what Tuck is about. I also talked about why i'm ready to go to a small school in the middle of nowhere even though I live in a big city now. But overall, it's laid-back and enjoyable. I was very impressed with Tuck.

This has been asked before about many schools, and the answer is still...no.

Officialy turned down Tuck this week....It was a very extremely tough choice, but as many people on here have said "you have to be passionate about the program." I thought the school and everyone I met seemed extremely nice, intelligent and welcoming, but in the end I just didn't think it was a great fit. Best of luck to everyone applying and hopefully I just made someone on the waitlist very happy!

Good luck homes. And thanks for opening up a space for someone else at Tuck. All your schools are awesome!

January seems to be unusually long this year. I have been waiting since my interview in the middle of December. Well, now it's only 12 days left :)

Any Tuckies know the difference between Achtmeyer & Pineau-Valencienne Halls or living at Whittmore Hall? I'm filling out the housing application now, and unsure about the advantages/disadvantages between the two halls. Any help would be great appreciated! Thank you.

That still leaves 3 schools! Where you leaning? Or have you withdrawn from other places?

This question was asked at a Tuck information session and the adcom member said that sometimes re-applicants may not have to interview but if you are applying for the first time you will be either invited to interview or can initiate one.

PV and Achtmeyer are newer and hence a little nicer. Newer dorms have kitchen on every floor and sleep number beds. Whittemore has a shared kitchen downstairs and regular beds. Whit is closer to the building where the classrooms are. That's about it for the differences. Unless, something changed in the school policy you can't really choose which dorm you want to be in - it's a lottery-based assignment and not everyone gets the dorm room in the first place.

Hi, if I haven't received interview invite before Jan 31 for the Jan around, does that mean that I was rejected?

Not necessarily, you could be waitlisted. I've heard of instances when one or two interviews were conducted a few days before the deadline, but that is not normal.

Don't forget about the "heart attack email" you'll get this Friday from Tuck just "reminding" you that decision notifcations will be available in a week. As if you haven't had Feb 8 circled on your calendar for months.

Best of luck to everyone!
