Tuck [#permalink]

I don't think those are the correct 07-08 applications essays for Tuck. The essays listed on the previous page are identical to last years and I assume that they have changed for this year. I checked the Tuck site and could only find the essays listed on the previous page as the 06-07 application essays. I might be missing something. Anyone else notice this?

They were posted on their site as the 2008 essays and they did not change. The application was up at one point but isn't anymore. I would say that its a safe bet to work on those essays since most likely thats going to be what they are. One might get changed but those seem to be what they have been for the last few years.

For more info specific to Tuck you should go to the thread on that and join in the discussion.

Application Deadlines
Rd 1: November 1, 2007 Decisions released by January 18, 2008
Rd 2: January 3, 2008 Decisions released by March 7, 2008
Rd 3: March 3, 2008 Decisions released by April 21, 2008

Essays
Two short essay answer questions and two long essays must be completed before submitting your application. Prepare your essays carefully. The Admissions Committee considers your responses to the following questions important in the selection process. Please respond fully and concisely using 1.5 line spacing.

For the short answer questions, please restrict your response to a single page each. For the long essay questions, please select only one question to answer from the three choices given for the first question, and then you must answer the second question. There is no restriction on the length of your response for the two long essay questions. Applicants typically use between 500 and 750 words for long essays one and two.

Candidates who applied to Fuqua between September 2006 and April 2007 are considered reapplicants. Reapplicants are asked to complete the Reapplicant Essay in addition to the Applicant Essays.

All applicants have the opportunity to submit an optional essay to explain any extenuating circumstances of which the Admissions Committee should be aware.

Applicant Essays
Short Essays - Answer both short essay questions.

1. Why are you interested in The Duke MBA program and how will it help you achieve your goals? In answering, please also discuss your career path and state your short and long-term goals. If you are interested in the Health Sector Management concentration or a joint degree program, please address in this essay.

2. How will your background, values, and non-work related activities enhance the experience of other Duke MBA students and add value to the diverse culture we strive for at Fuqua?

Long Essays - For essay 1, please answer only one of the three essay options provided. All applicants should answer question 2.

1. Please respond fully and concisely to one of the following essay topics. Clearly identify which question you have selected.

a. To be a good team player, one needs to be an effective individual leader and vice-versa. Describe an example of where you were challenged to become a leader in a team-oriented context. What was the challenge you faced, how did you address it, and what did you take away from the experience for your future development as a leader?

b. Describe a situation in which your ability to perform ethically was challenged. What was the issue, how did you handle it, and what did you learn from it?

c. Describe a significant leadership failure in your life. What did you learn from this failure? How has it impacted who you are today and the kind of leader you would like to be?

2. How has your personal history and family background influenced your intellectual and personal development? What unique personal qualities or life experiences distinguish you from other applicants? Note: The goal of this essay is to get a sense of who you are, rather than what you have achieved professionally.

Reapplicant Essay
In addition to the Applicant Essays listed above, please answer the following question. There is no restriction on the length of your response. Reapplicants typically use between 500 and 750 words for this essay.

1. Write an essay describing how you are a stronger candidate for admission compared to the previous year's application.
