Visit the school. Also, Tuck has something called "Tuck Connections" that is good for prospective students. You sign up and a few days later they put you in contact with a current student/alumni with a similar background as yours. Another way to "show love" is to research all you can about the program.

I'll also be attending Tuck this September.

I'll also be happy to answer any questions that you have so please feel free to ask them here of pm me for a quicker response.

Right now I'm only qualified to answer questions regarding the application process but once I'm actually attending the school I'll be happy to answer whatever I can.

Just so you know, I applied in the April round, was waitlisted, and then finally accepted in June.

Good luck to everyone who is applying!

I am in for round 1 as well.

Also, I am attending the Summer Visit Day on July 29. I'm heading up from DC, but am trying to figure out the best way to tackle the event. I will probably come up Thursday night since leaving Friday morning and trying to get to Hanover by 9:30AM leaves way too many opportunities to get held up and be late... but, I'm debating whether or not to stay Friday night too...

To those of you heading up on the 29th to visit: what are you planning to do? Getting there from DC is kind of a pain so if anyone is interested in splitting a rental car or something from Logan Airport, let me know.

I'm also heading up from the DC/MD area, but I'm just going to drive up on the 28th, then leave when the event is over on the 29th. My plan is to leave work early (12-1ish) on the 28th, drive up, check into the hotel that night. Check out in the AM, go to the event, then just leave and drive home after 5 or whenever the event ends. Its A LOT of driving in a short amount of time, but I don't really want another hotel night to pay for, so I just have to bite the bullet.
