Just stumbled onto this belatedly. Hello everyone!
Would be great if people could get involved in this, I'm sure there will be many post-admit discussions that would otherwise clutter the main applicant thread.

Haven't read anything about it in any admit student material (welcome packet or website) - so I'm not sure.
Can any current student shed any light on this?

Hello Everyone!

Hope you had a GREAT holiday. I polled all the successful Tuck EA Applicants and many were willing to share their profiles publicly (Thank you very much).
Here are the results:

Successful T' 16 Profiles (current year successes):

(these are permanently added to the first post of the main thread)

Other Notable - I think the difference for me was making an effort to get to know the school and students. Connecting with students with a similar profile made me able to write essays that really spoke about why I would benefit from Tuck and how I could contribute (At least this is my take away). Also tons of constant self reflection on my goals, tons of edits on the essays, and hours of practice on the interviews allowed my strengths come through

I'm most likely going to miss it. I'll be in the middle of handing over at work that week, plus it's a tidy sum to go back and forth from India. :(

Thrilled to be in folks. Look forward to meeting you'll soon! ASW won't be possible thanks to my current employers.

I'm sure we get Tuck laptops as part of the course fee. Nothing stopping you from bringing your own though for personal use!
