If it helps those who applied in the Jan round - a friend of mine in India received his interview invite at Tuck yesterday. He is based in India and will do a Skype.


Thanks for the update. Submitted for Jan Round too. Understanding the limited spots in Jan Round (most admits been released in EA and Round One), honestly I did not give too much hope on this one. Just sit tight and wait.


Keep in mind the January decsion date isnt' until March 15, so there's still a ways to go. Even though applicant-initiated interviews needed to be complete by 1/31/13, the adcom reserves the right to invite applicants that didn't interview all the way up to the decision deadline.

Also - since Tuck has four rounds vice three, January is still viable - i.e. Tuck doesn't stack the EA and November round with admits as they want to see the entire applicant pool. The April round is where you should lose hope. :P

Just thought I'd give an update to all the fellow international applicants here.
I've applied in the January round, got my interview invite on January 28th, requested a skype interview today (Brazil - Hanover is too expensive on such short notice).
Anyone else from Brazil/Latin America invited to interview for this round?

I've heard that Tuck interviews are all about 'fit' - how they really want to see how well you fit into Tuck's culture, your team work etc.

Is there anything else that Tuck particularly focuses on in the interviews? Would love any help I can get! Also I'll be interviewing over skype.


Congratulations! My advice would be - focus on teamwork, know your strength and weaknesses well, demonstrate your knowledge about and fit with Tuck and, needless to say, communicate smoothly. [Tip: Refer to Clearadmit guide online]

A word on 'fit'. As per my understanding of the process, 'fit' is a very important, perhaps even an added admission criteria at Tuck unlike some of the other schools. It is important to convey how one's history exemplifies he /she will fit into the culture of the school. However, it's not the be all, end all and comes only after other aspects of one's candidature viz leadership, teamwork, intellectual ability are sufficiently demonstrated.




Thanks niksworth! This helps a lot :) I'm going to be interviewing via Skype too. I've emailed the adcom asking for a date for the Skype interview but haven't received a response yet (been 5 days). Has anyone else interviewing via Skype heard back from the adcom yet?

Guys, I just received a note from Tuck after submitted 35 days for Jan Round:

"Thank you for selecting the Tuck School of Business to receive your GMAT® results. We are delighted that you are interested in applying to Tuck, and we look forward to getting to know you as you embark on the application process.

If you have not visited us, we encourage you to make this the next step in your application process.Tuck is a pretty special place, and you can’t fully understand what sets us apart until you experience Tuck for yourself. Tuck's visit and interview season begins in mid-September and continues through mid-April for each admissions cycle.

Tuck’s open interview policy gives you the opportunity to put your best foot forward in a one-on-one conversation with a member of our interview team (usually a second-year student). While on campus, you will attend a class, have lunch with current students, tour our beautiful campus and participate in a question and answer session with a member of the Admissions team. While an applicant-initiated interview is not required to apply to Tuck, we strongly encourage you to consider including it as part of your application process.

Thank you for including Tuck among your choices for an MBA. We look forward to meeting you and reading your application!"

Does that mean the AO has just started to look on your application? Positive or negative? Thanks.

Not really. I also got this email few minutes back. Per earlier posts in this thread, you can see that Tuck send GMAT Score acknowledgement a little late. However, I think Tuck can access the online GMAT scores a lot quicker and usually that's what they do when reviewing applications (an admission team member had said this to me in her email).

On another note, I am R1 applicant and my heart skipped a beat when I saw the email with subject - "Thank You for Your Interest in the Tuck School of Business". Helluva timing !! :)

The portal showed the score has been received a month back. Probably it is just the system falsely shot the gun... Well, I will try not to look too much into it.

Thought it was a ding, the title is very disappointing... Is this an automatic email to applicants when AO access the online GMAT? If so, it is a good indication of when AO actually starts reading application. However, I see you're in for R1, so probably this does not apply.

According to Early Action cycle posts, November round congratulation calls will begin on 7 Feb at noon Hanover time and continue through the morning on the 8th. On the 7th, calls will prioritize international applicants and the next day US applicants, though a number of US based applicants have also reported receiving calls on the D-1 Day.

I received an interview invite on Friday. How much would it hurt my chances of admission to do the Skype interview vs. traveling to Hanover?

In the same situation.. Been about 5 days since I e-mailed them to schedule a Skype interview, but haven't heard back. Anyone get their Skype interview scheduled yet?

I'm guessing you're Stateside and in a position where you can afford to make the trip. Self-initiating the interview is one thing but its a different ball game when the school likes what they see on your app and invites you for an interview. As long as you don't have to spend a paycheck on it, I believe its worth traveling - to make a direct impression in-person and also to check out the campus while you're at it. I do know people who were in the country and got admitted after a skype interview, so its definitely not the end of the world. If I were you, I wouldn't take chances and would make the trip :)

I applied the Jan round, and didn't receive any response now. Since the Nov round will begin to release offer, is it reasonable I assume game is over?

If I remember correctly, the invites last went out end of last week (31st Jan or 1st Feb?) I think they will take a break from then till let's say the 10th, between which they will be calling admitted students in Nov round and also wrapping up that round. Hence, you may hear from them post that. This is also probably the reason why people who have sent emails to the adcom to schedule a Skype interview havent heard back as of yet.

to all those considering skype - I'd travel to campus if in any way possible. When I was there for my self-initiated I probably lived the closest to Campus (Washington, DC). In addition to people from the West Coast (San Fran, Denver, Vancouver), there were people from Milan, Mumbai, New Delhi, Tokyo, and a whole host of other places. If they can make it for a self-initiated interview, I wonder how Tuck is going to look on people who Skype for an invited interview.

I went from Russia for an interview - and with me there was a guy who flew from South Korea for one day - he said that he arrived in Boston few hours ago to get back the same evening.

So, well, I'd assume that if you are an American applicant, you'd better to show up :)

Wow, this will make me feel better if I don't get accepted--didn't put that much into it in the first place...That's fair...
