FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Why I Chose a Dual-Degree Program with Tuck & Harvard Kennedy School
Image
Image
By Alen Amini T'18


Alen is a dual-degree student at Tuck and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. Originally from Ohio, he previously served as a TFA corps member and vice principal at Lakeside High School in Lake Village, Arkansas, and interned at the White House this past summer. 

I am often asked why I chose to pursue the joint MBA/MPP degrees at Tuck and at the Harvard Kennedy School. Surely, conventional wisdom suggests, there’s nothing that one degree offers that cannot be supplemented by coursework at either institution. I am certainly not getting any younger, and the ROI (and opportunity cost) seemingly cannot justify earning two degrees concurrently. As time passes, however, I am increasingly more confident that I made the right decision.

Not only have I been fortunate to collaborate with bright classmates and to learn from world-class faculty at both schools, but I have also been fortunate to avail myself of unique opportunities exclusive to each institution. For example, last year at HKS, I could not have imagined I would help run a food truck and a small clothing store as a student. Similarly, had I chosen to only attend business school, I would not have spent two weeks working with classmates to address some of the challenges facing the United States immigration system, or researched elections in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Ultimately, I chose to pursue the dual-degree because government and business are increasingly inextricably linked. Having worked in the nonprofit and education sectors before school, I enrolled at Tuck to better position myself to seek elusive private sector opportunities and to potentially develop in such roles in hopes of eventually becoming a more successful contributor across sectors. Although some of the coursework in both programs’ core curricula are similar, applying microeconomic principles, for example, when examining social security in the United States is vastly different than applying the same principles when analyzing an aluminum company’s decision to (not) build a new plant.

The past 15 months have been truly rewarding, and I highly recommend applying to the dual-degree program if you're even remotely interested in examining how business and government can work jointly to address the world’s most pressing challenges.

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Q&A with Tuck Student Ambassador: Vrashank Jain
Image
Tuck's Student Ambassador Team collaborates with the Admissions Office to share their Tuck experience with prospective students. The team is structured by geographical region, with an SAT Captain leading each. In the following months, we'll introduce you to them. Today, meet Vrashank Jain, T'18 and India Co-Captain. Please reach out to Vrashank or any other Student Ambassador using this website. They love to connect with future Tuckies, especially when they're from "home"!

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am from Jaipur, India. Prior to Tuck, I was working at ZS Associates for 4.5 years in commercial operations and consulting for pharmaceutical clients. I completed my undergraduate degree in Computer Science Engineering from BIT Mesra, India in 2012. My goal is to move to strategy consulting as a generalist.

Why Tuck?

Tuck is the closest match to my undergrad small-town college nostalgia, my outgoing nature, and my goal of moving into strategy consulting.

Everyone at Tuck chooses a different path. What’s your life at Tuck like?

I regularly host trivia nights, play table tennis between classes, and organize Indian festival celebrations. I don’t have family on campus, but I rarely feel alone.

Transformational Moment

When I pitched the idea of trivia nights (previously unheard of), I expected a dull response and even pushback from the social chairs. Instead, I found tremendous support to ensure I host a successful event. And boy did we nail it! It was then I realized Tuck is a special place for people who are doers.

Why did you join the Student Ambassador Team?

I found the application process to be very stressful but I found support from Tuck when I needed it. I want to do my bit to help return the favor and give people honest feedback to make their lives easier. I can’t overstate the importance of being able to find a person to talk to who knows and has gone through the same experience.

What surprised you most about Tuck?

For international students, Tuck sounds like a non-traditional choice where it’d be hard to find a community and support. That was my impression at first, too. But once I got here, I quickly realized how wrong I was. International students play a huge part in shaping the experience. We run social clubs and events, and manage career and networking opportunities with employers. I am glad my notion was proved wrong!

Any advice for prospective students?

While Tuck provides an amazing opportunity to revolutionize your career, it is also a niche school. Tuck is all about fit. Talk to as many Tuckies as you can to find out if this is the place you want to be in. If you do, just be yourself when writing and talking to the Adcom. They’ll love you for it.

Hi All,

Do you guys know whether Tuck usually calls the day BEFORE the decision date (Friday)?

Would they make calls tomorrow to those accepted?

Thanks!

Well, I feel you, but at this point, we have no control over the outcome - be patient :). Easier said than done. The calls will start around noon tomorrow I think. But most take place on the day itself. It is going to be around 90- or so calls so not terrible. All should get them on Friday itself.

Yeah agreed. Last year they did do calls the day before (so tomorrow), but there were still plenty the morning of (Friday). So if you don't get a call tomorrow, try to not freak out. Easier said than done, of course.

Absolutely. Tuck is my top choice. But I got a scholarship at both NYU and Kellogg, so really hoping that 1) I get in and that 2) I get a scholarship that's competitive so I don't have to make a really hard choice.

Is the 584 admit number for Tuck on page 1 accurate? That makes it closer to ~125 with Nov and Jan rounds filling in the rest of the admit offers. Did close to 50% really decline Tuck last year?

those stats are for the class of 2017. and yes Tuck has a yield of 50% ish, I'm sure it fluctuates. it sucks for folks like me who really want to go there but may or may not get the chance to pick.

What is the source of that number? Does Tuck publish that number?

Definitely agree. I always had my doubts about the yield number as well as it seemed kind of low...it's interesting to see it stacked up against the other schools though. I'm honestly surprised that most of the top schools are around this %, barring HSW.

It really does suck too since Tuck is by far my #1 choice so I'd definitely go if accepted. I thought yield played a pretty large part in rankings so schools would try to aim for 80+ but it seems to not be the case.

In either case, does anyone know how time zones play a factor in the admissions calls? I know from previous threads it looks like they contact military and internationals first, but does EST vs. PST make a difference? In other words, will they contact EST folks before PST, so most likely PST won't hear on Thursday?

How do you know the calls just started? Was it on Livewire?

Are they only calling the military candidates? Or the first half of the list?
