Ha. Well I reread through my application and absolutely hung my head in shame. The number of typos is ridiculous and I'm happy to just get WL with what I submitted. Ohh man what time pressures do to people.


Haha I feel the same way when I look at my essays. Tuck was my first one and it definitely shows.

I got my feedback too. Same as everyone, nothing specific to address. Is anyone sending additional materials or updates even though you were told there were no major issues?

I had sent them updates about some courses I took and an award I got. Even if they don't have anything "specific" I don't think it'll hurt to give them substantial updates (i.e. award, promotion, leadership position in an extracurricular), because if nothing else, it shows you're still interested in Tuck and that you're doing something with your time before B-school starts in the fall.

I haven't gotten my feedback yet, but I sent them an additional essay about a month ago. I was waitlisted in the Nov round.

Did anyone else notice that the Tuck status of our friend @kingfalcon, who was waitlisted in the November Round, changed to accepted at Tuck? He said in this thread that he withdrew his application at Tuck, but unless this sudden change is a mistake, something might have happened there.
kingfalcon, throw us a bone here, please, tell us what happened!

I just got my WL feedback from Tuck (Jan round).

"...there is room for improvement regarding your GMAT score. Due to the strength of the candidates this year, your GMAT was not as competitive as other applicants"

I was planning on retaking for applying again next year, so who knows, maybe I'll do better and get lucky!

That was a mistake - kingfalcon was never WL'd. He got accepted in the November round and then decided to attend Sloan (after much deliberation).

Yeah, CobraKai is right. I was actually never waitlisted at Tuck. I was, however, waitlisted at Duke and then surprisingly admitted out of the blue after I thought I had already withdrawn.

Sorry I don't have any tips on how to get off the waitlist for Tuck!

Hey, you've done your part by matriculating at Sloan. :-D

Guys, I heard back from AO on my feedback. Actually, they told me there is nothing I could improve at this stage and just take the patience to wait. I think the earliest time we'll head back from them again will be beginning of May, when they find out the yield of the last two round.

Yeah - the communication I received basically said don't expect movement on the WL until June. May 24 is when April round decisions are released, and my guess is that yield from that round is pretty high and their admit decisions are enough to determine their capacity to make offers from the WL before April round deposits are due.

add me to the 'nothing specific that I recommend you work on at this time'. Kind of frustrating since I was hoping there was a glaring weakness in my app that I could account for and jump off the WL.

Also, I had another mini heart attack when I saw 'Tuck' in the subject line of the email. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUuu

Just received my feedback as well - room for improvement regarding GMAT Score (710). While its close to their average, I can understand their recommendation here given the rest of my profile may just be average on their standards.

My question is, lets say I am having a bad morning on the day I reschedule my exam and happen to get a 690 or 700 (though I'm confident I can improve with a few weeks of practice exams) will that automatically lead to a DING? Will Tuck AdCom only see my scores if I specifically make them aware of my retake and if I actually send the scores over?

It's interesting that they responded that way to a score of 710, when other WL'ers, including myself, scored well below that. I don't believe that a lower score would necessarily lead to a ding, but I think that a higher score, even 10 points, would really show your commitment. Going through the whole testing process again is a lot of work and I think the AdCom appreciates that effort.

Was it your composite score, or were your splits unbalanced? Not trying to dig, but I too think it's odd to say a 710 could use improvement, unless you were one of those guys that got a quant score in the 65th %ile and a verbal in the 97th %ile
