For what it's worth I was dinged with this message for the class of 2014. I was dinged without it for the class of 2015, but asked for it myself and got it. I did not apply to the classes of 2016-2018. I was just accepted into the class of 2019.

The feedback was definitely valuable--imagine if before applying you could have someone tell you exactly where your application was deficient, what to work on, and what not to worry about. And that that person was going to be the same exact person reading your next application. For those of you who are offered the feedback, take Tuck up on this offer! For everyone else, ask for feedback anyway!


It might be a stupid question but do you think the same is true for waitlisted applicants? Or do you think the waitlisted candidates will have a different kind of a feedback, if any at all. I am yet to email Tuck expressing my intent in remaining in the waitlist but I haven't heard of any feedback that'd be given, yet.


I would suggest very politely contacting admissions, telling them that you're aware that it's possible to receive feedback and that you'd be interested in it. I know you'll want to jump on it right away, but a better time to do this after admissions season is over when they have more time for you.

Thank you!

I just e-mailed them to express my intent to stay on the WL. The email said that someone from the admissions team would reach out to me typically early in Spring and provide feedback.

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Waitlisted?
Image
We know “waitlist” wasn't the decision you were hoping for. But rather than seeing this in a completely negative light, keep in mind that being waitlisted indicates there were many strengths in your application. Tuck receives a lot applications and the pool is very competitive. Also remember that it’s not over yet! Almost every year, we admit people from the waitlist to join the first-year class right up until orientation begins in August. To give yourself the best chance of being one of those people, there are things you can do while you’re waiting to prepare yourself for business school.

First, take a deep breath. Do something healthy for yourself. Spend time with family and friends, go for a run, or whatever you do to decompress. Good decisions about future paths are rarely made when you’re under stress or feel anxious. Release some of those anxieties and put your efforts into building a wise strategy for moving forward.

Second, follow the instructions. Your decision letter lets you know what you need to do next. You’ll need to decide whether or not you want to remain on the waitlist. If you choose to remain on the waitlist, an Admissions Officer will get in touch (typically early spring) to let you know if there are any steps you can take to enhance your application.

In the meantime, however, this is a good time to look back on your application and decide for yourself what your strengths and weaknesses are. An honest assessment of what you could improve is a great opportunity for you to come up with a game plan. Maybe you think you could score higher on your GMAT, or you realize your goals or your rationale for your MBA weren’t clear. That insight can help you take proactive steps now, without having to wait for feedback from us.

Third, trust the process. We know being in limbo is challenging. We work hard to make the waitlist process as informative and clear as possible. If we need something from you, we will let you know. Update us with important information such as promotions or updated test scores. There’s no need to make surprise visits to campus or stay in constant contact. Keep in mind how you handle yourself on the waitlist also gives us an idea of how you will handle yourself as a student. You can help your candidacy by maintaining your professionalism and checking in every once in a while.

Also, please be transparent and communicative with us about your plans. If you're in somewhere else and no longer interested in Tuck, please let us know. 

For those currently on Tuck's waitlist, this email address is the best way to provide updates or ask questions. As you look forward to receiving feedback, we thank you for your patience!

Hi,

I am from Singapore and I applied to Tuck in November Round. However, I haven't seen any update on the application. I believe Tuck has already started sending out interview invites for November round.
Should I still wait or consider it as a ding :(

The decision date for November round isn't until February...I'd say you still have some time to interview.

We're pleased to introduce TuckCast, a student-led podcast series offering greater insight into the Tuck experience. 

In our first episode, Alen Amini T'18 sits down with Stephanie Butler, associate director of admissions. Butler offers her advice for prospective Tuck applicants on common application mistakes to avoid, crafting your best essay, and applications she's been particularly impressed with. "You still have time. Don't rush—put forth your best effort." says Butler. "Craft a thoughtful essay. Be thoughtful and self-reflective."

Just notified Tuck that I will not be accepting their offer of admission. I absolutely loved the school when I visited a few months ago. The people, the facilities, the area are fantastic in my opinion. Tuck is one of my dream schools and I was very fortunate to be offered admission.

Hopefully, with notifying them so soon, it may help folks on the WL.

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Q&A with Tuck Student Ambassador: Eduardo Watanabe
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 Eduardo Watanabe, T'17 and Brazil Lead. Please reach out to Eduardo 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 grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil, got my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering, and did consulting at Accenture for 5 years prior to Tuck. Last summer, I did my internship at Tesla in Silicon Valley, and after graduation, I intend to go back to Brazil (probably consulting again).

Why Tuck?

Tuck is the place I felt would provide the most insightful experience, and the place where I’d be able to make life-time friends, not just a network. It's a place where you can reflect deeply about your goals and openly discuss them with friends who will provide feedback and support.

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

My life couldn’t be better. I’m single and try to take advantage of most social events (like hockey, which my team managed to win last winter!). I also host several small groups dinners in my home, with different people (at least once a week), so that we can chat more. During Fall A, I also invested a lot of time sharing my stats and ManEc (managerial economics) skills with my study group and friends, because I believe that helping each other is the best way to achieve higher goals.

Transformational Moment

During Outward Bound (an optional pre-term program), when I was the captain of the boat, I made a wrong maneuver and our boat lagged behind the other boats. At the time I felt terrible about it, and thought that my team would give me harsh feedback. Instead, they supported me and highlighted my positive qualities. I was really surprised with their support and felt much more confident during my other leadership experiences.

Why did you join the Student Ambassador Team?

I truly believe that Tuck provides a unique experience to the students, and I want to show that to the prospective Brazilians. Moreover, I believe that Tuck has a branding opportunity in Brazil, because most Brazilians end up staying in the US and are therefore less visible. I’d like to change this misleading perception.

What surprised you most at Tuck?

The people. I admire my classmates, and I learn a lot by chatting or working with them. Such a great experience!

Any advice for prospective students?

Be yourself and show why Tuck would be a great fit for you and why you would be a great fit for Tuck.

Hi all,

I just submitted my app for the January round.
I noted that the application proof does not have attachments of the resume or undergrad transcripts, like most other schools. There is no place in the pdf that indicates that something was uploaded wrt to this either (like the essays havean "uploaded" message).

Is this normal? Or should I contact the adcom to make sure they have received all the documents?

Same here. I wouldn't worry about it as long as the resume, transcripts and the essays were shown as "submitted" prior to you sending the application.
