Hey guys. Do you know what percentage of students received scholarships? What is the average scholarship amount? What is the average savings people come in with before business school? Are you expected to have paid off your undergraduate student loans prior to enrolling?

 FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Leaving The Classroom Behind: Hands-on Learning In The Energy Sector Pete Oveson, who is a T'15 from Salt Lake City, UT, shares his expereince visting TransCanada, Enbridge, and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP). After graduating with bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Utah State University in civil engineering, Pete headed to Portland, OR to work as a water infrastructure design engineer and project manager. After five years working in water engineering, Pete decided to come to Tuck to make a career transition into the business side of the energy industry. Outside of the classroom, Pete enjoys spending his time snow skiing and rock climbing with his wife, Sandy. He is interning at McKinsey’s Houston office this summer. After Tuck, Pete would like to continue to work in consulting, focusing on energy-related clients. It has been a great year to be part of the Dartmouth Energy Collaborative and Revers Energy Initiative! One of the most exciting things that we were able to participate in was a trip to Alberta, Canada this past May to visit several energy companies. We had an amazing group that included a mix of first and second year students as well as Professor Joe Hall. The trip was sponsored by the Revers Energy Initiative and the Canadian Consulate, so we were able to get VIP tours of some of the most high-profile energy companies in Canada. We spent the first day of the trip in Calgary visiting TransCanada, Enbridge, and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP). Both TransCanada and Enbridge are pipeline companies that specialize in transporting oil and natural gas from Alberta to the rest of North America. We were all amazed to see how much these companies are growing as a result of the recent boom in Oil Sands production - both companies have current capital programs of nearly $40B! At TransCanada, we were able to see their pipeline control center. This “war room” is a centralized location where the company can remotely monitor and control its pipeline operations across North America. It was inspiring to see how the company is leveraging technology to make its pipelines safer and more efficient. Our discussions at TransCanada, Enbridge, and CAPP were dominated by two high-profile pipelines that are in regulatory limbo, the Keystone XL Pipeline (TransCanada), which will increase oil transportation from the Oil Sands to the Gulf Coast, and the Northern Gateway Pipeline (Enbridge), which will feed an oil export terminal on the west coast of British Columbia. Both of these projects are good case studies on the importance of securing a social license to operate. It is very interesting to hear about the stakeholder outreach that each company is now conducting to get these projects back on track. We spent the last two days in Fort McMurray visiting Syncrude, Alberta government officials, and the Wood Buffalo Environmental Association (WBEA). Fort McMurray is the launching pad for most of the Alberta Oil Sands production and it feels like the “wild west.” Several years of high oil prices have created a boom in Oil Sands production and population growth. We were blown away that the average annual salary and home price in Fort McMurray have risen to CAD$175,000 and CAD \$700,000 as a result of the boom. Most of us felt that the highlight of our time in Fort McMurray (if not the whole trip) was visiting the Syncrude open pit mine. The scale of this operation is impressive! It was great to be able to learn firsthand about how the oil sand, which looks and feels a lot like asphalt, is mined and eventually processed into oil that can then be transported via pipeline to refineries across North America. To give you an idea of the scale, Syncrude alone produces 350,000 barrels of oil per day or roughly 9% of Canada’s current oil production. While in Fort McMurray, we spent a lot of time discussing the environmental impact of oil sand production, which has been a hot topic among environmentalists. One reason why oil sand production is sometimes seen as worse for the environment than traditional oil production is that the raw oil sand requires more processing than traditional oil (oil sand is processed with hot water to separate the oil from the sand). Although there is a lot of debate about the environmental impacts from oil sands production, we all felt that oil sands producers are making environmental impact a top priority and are making great strides to decrease their overall impact.   Thanks to Mike Radu for all the great pictures!

Hello Everyone!
My first post here. Excited to be a part of the forum.

I am in a very early phase right now. Just beginning to prepare for the GMAT, planning to take the test in October. Looking at R2 applications.

Tuck is something that is getting me extremely excited. From all I am hearing, it is a closely knit community that places more value on your story than your "statistics".

Will someone be willing to communicate directly and answer few questions for me? Please do let me know.

Looking forward to going through the process with everyone here.

 FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Tuck GIVES Internships: Milking Goats and Analyzing Operations The Center for Business & Society works with students to develop an individualized program of academics, extra-curricular activities and work-experiences that fit their needs to enhance their perspective, deepen experiences, and create impact. Whether it's an interest in the ethical issues in business, environmental sustainability, or social change in the public sector, there are courses, student-led clubs, travel programs, consulting projects, conferences, and subsidized work experiences to prepare you for the impact they will create. Working in close partnership with the Tuck Career Development Office, the Center for Business & Society supports students interested in careers with a social and environmental focus. Students can gain experience, whether they wish to secure a position in a socially responsible company, work for a foundation, or apply business knowledge to the public or nonprofit sectors. They are also provided funding through Tuck GIVES, a community wide fundraiser that has supported 135 interns to work in 74 different organizations around the world.  Check out recent internships in social impact, education, and environment as well as other Center initiatives on their blog.  One such internship stemmed from a T'15's desire to transition from a career in pharmaceutical operations to one in agricultural operations.  Today, Divya is realizing that dream through her summer Ayers Brook Goat Dairy. The Dairy, a public-private partnership between the Vermont Creamery and the Castanea Foundation, aims to build an economically and environmentally sustainable operation that can eventually serve as a prototype and catalyst to develop a vibrant goat dairy industry in New England.  She found the internship through a meeting arranged by Tuck's Center for Business & Society with Jay Coen Gilbert, founder of B-Labs. Read more about how Divya will help Ayers Brook Goat Dairy track and analyze their operating costs to build an understanding around the unit economics of raising a dairy goat over its lifetime.

 FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Club Spotlight: Tuck Investment Club The Tuck Investment Club primarily serves students who are interested in careers in investment management, including hedge funds, mutual funds and other asset managers.  We also have members who are looking at finance more broadly as a career path and want to get more information about investing, market function and how to pitch an effective investment idea. One of the Investment Club’s most popular activities is MBA stock pitch competitions. Each year, Tuck selects teams to attend investment pitch competitions at Cornell, UNC, UVA, Michigan Ross, UCLA and other venues where we compete against the best and the brightest at peer schools like Wharton, Booth, and Columbia.  Pitch competitions give students the opportunity for exposure to industry professionals, to receive constructive feedback from judges and to work on a team alongside other Tuck students.  The team formation process begins in late September, and first-year students should reach out to club chairs in early September to indicate interest. The Investment Club doesn’t just pitch theoretical investment ideas- we also have an amazing resource in the student-directed investment fund known as Tuck Asset Management (TAM).  With nearly half a million dollars of capital, the fund is split into two strategies- equity long short (essentially a hedge fund) and a long-only pool of capital focused on longer term investment ideas.  First-year students who are interested can join the fund as an analyst and work on a sector team to generate ideas and monitor existing positions.  Second-years can continue with the fund in a senior analyst or Portfolio Manager role.  Next year, TAM will begin hiring a select group of Dartmouth undergraduates to serve as junior analysts, giving Tuck students the opportunity to mentor and direct junior members of their sector team. As is common at Tuck, both TAM and the Investment Club benefit from many hands-on alumni who work at top financial institutions ranging from traditional asset managers to hedge funds and investment research firms. Other activities the Investment Club is planning for 2014/15 include a mock portfolio trading challenge and a speaker series featuring prominent Tuck alumni from within the investment management industry. We look forward to meeting the T’16 class in the fall! Rance Barber, Daniel Butterly, Michaela LeBlanc and Konstantin Nikolaev T’15 Investment Club Co-chairs

An interesting article:

Please don’t forget the “touchy-feely” aspect of your MBA application as it is important. See the news item from businessweek below:

Applying to top business schools can make applicants feel like faceless batches of test scores and résumé lines, but a recent report shows some MBA programs make aspiring students feel loved. Others, not so much.

The Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants, a professional organization, released its MBA Applicant Survey (PDF) last week, in which it asked more than 800 professionals applying to B-school about topics ranging from job hopes to salary expectations. When they asked applicants to rate how well schools got to know them during the admissions process, Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business and Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business earned the highest marks for the second straight year.
