I'm headed to Hanover later this month for the applicant initiated interview (applied already in the January round).

Do you think I should update my resume for the interview to include my GMAT score? I was thinking it could turn out to be an implicit benefit and show that I am a strong academic fit.



Good luck bud. I would let alumni or somebody with more experience answer that question.
I am planning a class visit myself but cant get any dates from tuck. Its going to be really cold this time of the year

I don't think it matters that much. In my opinion, the interview is used to assess fit, and for my interview with a current student, I don't think they would care about my GMAT score. If I were a student interviewing, I wouldn't care about it.

However, I don't think it would hurt, so it would be a fairly low-risk change..

I believe Tuck only allows non-interview visits during the Spring Term which begins in late March and runs through the end of May. The weather should at least be better that time of year. Visiting during the spring would be a great way to confirm your interest in the school.

From the Tuck website: "**Please Note: For candidates applying in 2017-2018 cycle, visits without an interview will be available during the Spring Term."

Hi everyone!

I am scheduled to do the self-initiated interview this month. Unfortunately, my agenda has changed and I may have to cancel my slot. The problem is that all slots are already taken so I cannot reschedule. Does this mean that my application is doomed? Do you think new interview slots will be added?

Did you try contacting admissions ?

Before submitting my application, I scheduled an on campus interview and visit to Tuck, and it was far more than I expected. Tuck is at the top of my list, and the visit just reaffirmed everything I already heard from current Tuckies, reading reviews online, etc.

Here's an overview of my day:

There were about 20 of us interviewing, all Round 2 applicants, and our interviews were spread throughout the day. Our interview time determined our class visit. I visited the Marketing course (core course in winter term) and there were 50-60 T'18s in the class. It is also interview week on campus, so the school was busy with lots of companies and organizations there to interview for summer internships. After class, everyone had lunch together and a Q&A session with 3 first year students. We then did a quick campus tour, followed by a Q&A with admissions. Finally, I had my interview.

I interviewed with an Admissions Associate (second year student) and it was extremely conversational and relaxed. We had a casual conversation to start, interviewer asked me a few questions, then I asked them some questions. It lasted about 45 minutes total, but only 25 minutes of it was me answering questions. The interview had the standard questions you've probably read everywhere else: Resume walkthrough. Why an MBA and why now? Why Tuck? Short term/long term goals? Two "Tell me about a time when" questions.

If you interview at Tuck, do not stress about it. After my experience today, I can confidently say you absolutely should not stress. Stay calm and treat it like a conversation with a friend. You'll feel far more relaxed that way and my interviewer did an excellent job of making sure things stayed comfortable and casual.

+1 for the January round.

Cannot wait to hear back (even though its only been about a week ha ha). Does anyone know if they wait till the notification deadline (March for the Jan round) or do they send decisions out as and when they have them ready?

All the best to everyone!


During my visit yesterday, Kristin Roth told us all decisions will be released at the same time on March 10th at 5PM EST. We should only hear from admissions if they have specific questions about our application... so I guess we just sit tight and hope for the best!

Straight Outta Q&A: Centers & Initiatives [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 18 Jan 2017, 15:00
FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Straight Outta Q&A: Centers & Initiatives
Image
This afternoon, I hosted our daily “Q&A with an Admissions Officer” session. Like many other days (most, really), the prospective student visitors had questions about Tuck’s Research Centers and Initiatives—today it happened to be the Revers Energy Initiative and the Center for Business, Government, & Society. Generally speaking, Centers and Initiatives connect the classroom to the real world. Here, the website explains it a little better:

 

[Centers and Initiatives] support faculty research, enrich the curriculum and learning environment for students, and connect the school more directly with practitioners and thought leaders in each field. Each sponsors its own programs and qualified MBA students are invited to serve as fellows, research associates, roundtable members, or participants in independent study projects.

Our current Centers and Initiatives revolve around industries such as technology, government and society, private equity and entrepreneurship, energy, and healthcare. How involved you get with each is up to you, but this is one of the best, most influential ways to dive deeply into a particular sector outside of the classroom.  

As an MBA student, there are opportunities to participate in programing with visiting executives, collaborate with faculty on related research, receive advice and mentorship from staff and alumni, participate in case competitions, and more. Centers and Initiatives also partner closely with each other, with student led clubs, and with the Career Development Office in various ways (for example, on Career Insight Expeditions which allow students to visit relevant companies in various areas of the United States and world). Finally, the directors and faculty affiliated with each Center or Initiative are phenomenal, and have significant experience to draw from and share.

All Centers and Initiatives operate a little bit differently and have somewhat different offerings—please (!) take some time to explore the ones that interest you. Their websites are full of more detail, profiles of current students, and faculty bios. Many offer contact information as well. Utilize these resources!

My hope in the Q&A (and here) is to give you a brief overview, but it’s up to you to dig deeper! The resources are there—take advantage of them. If you do, you’ll inevitably be a stronger candidate, better equipped to decide whether Tuck is right for you, and as a student, ready to jump into everything Tuck has to offer.

I applied on Jan-3 and received an interview invitation yesterday by mail. I don´t know how to treat this because from what I´ve heard they interview a great number of applicants. What are your thoughts on this?

You application will be read by one person and they will make a recommendation if you should be invited to interview. They'll also make a recommendation of "admit" or "deny." If invited to interview, you'll receive a notification from Tuck.

Your app will also be reviewed by a second person who makes an admit/deny recommendation. If you were invited to interview, the second reader will see the interview summary.

Huh. I have not received such an email. So basically I should wait to start getting antsy about getting an interview invite until I get such an email. Good to know!
