Hi,

I just started reading this thread. Have the interview invites for R2 started rolling out?
I am an international applicant and did not self-initiate an on-campus interview. Does that lessen my chances of getting an invite/admit?

Thanks.


Hello, welcome to the forum!
As an international applicant myself, thought I'd might help you out.
I'm from Brazil, also did not schedule a self-initiated interview on campus (I could not travel to Hanover in time), and got my invite on January 28th. I believe this shows that you can definately move forward without a self-initiated interview. Having said that, I believe that by "Round 2" you mean the January round, right? I've seen in this forum people getting invited to interview by the school in different dates for the January round, which leads me to believe that Tuck does not send all invites neither on one particular day, nor in waves. But that is just a guess.
I do not think that you should lose hope if you didn't get an invite thus far. There's still one month to go before the decision release, so there is time. But regardless of what might happen, I don't think that as an international applicant, not going to Hanover automatically kills all your chances. If (and may God forbid!) you are unsuccessful, it will probably have more to do with you application, than the fact of not going to Hanover.

Best of luck to you!

True. I have had a self-initiated interview in October and then submitted my application in January round. In most schools you start the process submitting an application - and here this is a kind of a final step. Then you just wait...

I feel like I somewhat lack this "connection" to the school after the application was submitted... I really enjoyed the place, the visit experience, students were really nice and interesting - and then you just don't know where you stand. Maybe my application is already used to build up a fire in some cold Hanover house's fireplace...

Well that's depressing imagery. But, if you write like that, maybe your essays were great and they're just waiting until March to give you the good news!

Given the fact that Tuck receives only 500-600 apps per round, there is no reason for them to take 2.5 months to release the decisions. My guess is they probably do it for yield management purposes, which is insane.

Well, keep in mind that the rounds over lap, so even though the January Round deadline was Jan 3, they probably weren't able to turn their full attention to these apps until after the Feb 8 decision date for the November Round.

They're not like schools with only three Rounds who only have one batch going at a time, i.e. Round 1 Due in Oct, decisions released in December, Round 2 Due in Jan, decisions released in March, etc, etc.

If I've applied to the Jan round w/o applicant initiated interview and I haven't received school initiated interview yet - may I say that I am dinged?

Be positive!!! Things are not over until the fat lady sings!



Agree with Bizwiz - especially since you're an international applicant. Much easier to arrange a skype interview a couple of days later (especially since applicant initiated interviews are over for the January Round) rather than if you a domestic applicant that had to book a flight to Hanover.

Have any other admits received emails from Tuck faculty?

A Tuck professor reached out to me by email and we talked on the phone this morning. Apparently, he was given the task of selling me on the program and he's an expert in my general field. We do this type of thing all the time in consulting after we give someone a job offer, but I didn't know business schools did it.

I told him the truth. Tuck is my top choice and if my fiancee can find a post-doc at Darmouth, I will probably accept the offer.

They really want you there. Out of curiousity, why are you still applying to other schools? Tuck is ranked higher than every other school you are applying to?

I'm not applying to any more schools, I'm just waiting to find out about interviews/admissions now.

I won't commit to anything yet because there's a chance that my fiancee won't find a post-doc at Dartmouth and I'm willing to go to a school that's lower on my list if it means keeping my family together. It's also possible that Tuck doesn't offer my the Consortium Fellowship but any school does offer money, then I'd have to weigh my options carefully. Ceteris paribus, I will go to Tuck.

Any idea when Tuck starts inviting for off-campus interview for R2 (international) applicants?


Same question here. Does anyone know?


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

Same here. Applied in R2 but haven't received a word from Tuck. I'ved emailed the admission office and they confirmed that the 31 Jan interview deadline only applied to on-campus interview. For off-campus interview, the interview deadline will be (implicitly near) the decison date in March.

So, now I have finally made my decision. I paid the deposit yesterday. It actually felt pretty good to spend those $2,500. Now I'm really looking forward to get started in August. I hope to see many fellow gmatclubbers in Hanover.

Congrats! I am not quite there yet, so I envy that feeling! :lol:

Invited to interview! Though chances might be slim for Jan Round internationals, I will give my best shot. Meanwhile, I am curious about the admission rate for international who got invited to interview. Could any international admits please share a thought?

Congrats! That's definitely a positive sign. I'm not sure what the admission rate for internationals who gets interview invites is. You might want to read the 2012 Tuck Calling All Applicants thread to get some idea.

I submitted my app in round 2 and it still says "completed" and not "under review"? Anything alarming?
