FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Behind the Scenes with Tuck Admissions
Image
Okay, so you’ve put your blood, sweat, and tears into preparing the perfect application. You double (no triple) checked it for any mistakes. Then…you hit the submit button. What happens next? Every school handles the evaluation and committee process a little differently, but here’s a peak behind the curtain at Tuck!

Once we receive your application, we print it out and put it in a file along with your letters of recommendation (which have hopefully already arrived) and the write-up from your interview (assuming you have already completed one). The complete file then goes to one of our eight admissions committee members for the first read. She reads everything that has been submitted, takes notes, and writes a brief evaluation of the pros and cons of the file. Then, she makes a recommendation whether to admit or deny the applicant. If the applicant has not already had an interview, the reader also makes a recommendation whether we should invite him/her to interview. Please note that this happens for EVERYONE. We don’t have minimum cut-offs for GMAT/GRE, GPA, work experience, etc. All files go through this process. Next, the complete file then goes on to a second member of the admissions committee for another full read. She goes through the same exercise and makes a recommendation whether to admit or deny.

So, now we have two evaluations of the application—sometimes they agree, sometimes they don’t—that’s why we have more than one person read each file. Next stop for our file is Pat or Amy’s office, Senior Associate Directors of Admission. Either Pat or Amy reviews each reader’s comments and may read some or all of the file if further clarification is needed. Some of the applicants they review are clear admits, and some are unfortunately clear denies. At this point, a final decision for those groups is made. However, a larger number of applicants fall somewhere in the middle, and that group goes to “committee.”

Committee occurs at the end of the application round. Basically, we lock ourselves in a conference room for a few days, with a generous supply of junk food, and the group discusses each applicant. Some of those discussions are lengthy and become quite passionate. Eventually we arrive at a final decision as a group. Final decisions are then communicated to all applicants via their online admissions account on the published notification date. Hopefully, the news is good!

Now that we have come to the end of our file’s journey, the important thing to take away is that A LOT of time and attention is given to every single application. One of the things our office is most proud of is how thoughtful our process is. We really try to get to know each of the applicants as a person, not just a series of stats. All of the hard work you put into your application is appreciated—we really do read every essay you write.

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: The Political Bug
Image
By Justen Nestico T’17

One unique thing about attending Tuck—and one of the reasons that I wanted to be here during these two particular years—is its location at the heart of one of the most unpredictable elections in American history. Whether it is presidential candidates coming to campus before New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary, upcoming student-run Q&A panels with Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan (candidates in one of the most competitive races in the country, the winner of which may determine the balance-of-power within the U.S. Senate), or the opportunity to work with former New Hampshire governor and current Center for Business, Government, and Society (CBGS) Senior Fellow John Lynch, Tuck students get a first-hand look into the political process that wouldn’t be possible at any other business school.

This was a big factor in my choosing Tuck because I was working as a consulting actuary in Washington D.C., where I helped companies manage balance sheet risk and navigate the introduction of Image
Obamacare and post-Enron pension reform bills. I was particularly interested in being involved with the CBGS during the election because business leaders need to understand the risks and opportunities that governments impose on and create for companies and how best to shape corporate strategy in the face of changing government policies. Now a second-year fellow with the Center, I’ve thus far had the opportunity to study Uber’s market-entry strategy and the GE-Alstom deal, including interviews with senior leaders from the companies, governments, and labor representatives involved (including high-level Obama administration officials).

Looking around campus, it’s clear that the rest of the Tuck community has caught the political bug as well, as evidenced by the huge turnout for the first Clinton-Trump debate viewing party. Tuck prides itself on creating global leaders by serving as a “base camp” to the rest of the world but Tuck students understand intuitively that what it means to be a global leader in the future will be defined by the outcome of this election, given the candidates’ vastly different views on how America should engage with the world. Whatever the result in November, I’m confident that being at Tuck during this election and having worked as a CBGS Fellow will enable me to better navigate the complicated relationship between business and government upon graduation.

The Center for Business, Government & Society is focused on meeting the evolving complexities facing business leaders in today’s global economy. In the context of globalization and technological advancement, business success increasingly depends on reconciling the interests of its immediate stakeholders with the broader, deeply intertwined interests of both governments and society. Business leaders adept at navigating these many interests will be better equipped and empowered to help build a more sustainable global economy.

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: From Idea, to Startup, to Corporate Success
Image
By Danielle Musa T’17, a fellow with the Center for Business, Government & Society

When you think of a powerful brand like Keurig, it’s easy to forget the company is less than 25 years old. How does a company grow from an idea, to a viable venture, to a private company valued at $14 billion? Case studies are a great way to learn about the pitfalls and opportunities along this path. An even more powerful learning experience is intimate discussions with the leaders of the journey.

In early October, I was fortunate to join a discussion with Dick Sweeney, co-founder of Keurig and current VP of contract manufacturing and quality assurance, and Larry Kernan, angel investor and former chairman. The discussion was co-sponsored by two Tuck research centers: the Center for Business, Government & Society and the Center for Private Equity and Entrepreneurship. An amazing part of the Tuck experience is that these events can bring together a wide range of perspectives and backgrounds, while cultivating intimate discussions.

“Having lunch” with Mr. Sweeney and Mr. Kernan complemented my classroom discussion on Keurig. The lunch conversation brought to life the interpersonal dilemmas and leadership characteristics that were central to Keurig’s story. For example, a major theme from my class discussion was the importance of a high level of trust in business partnerships. Speaking with the Keurig leaders directly, we explored some of the ways trust can be formed (and damaged), especially in the early stages of a partnership, when there have been only a limited number of interactions. I felt an immediate “aha” when the executives suggested that we look for commitment to the project vision and “shared values” between the companies. For a new idea, like Keurig, to grow and succeed, managers must respect the role and importance of many stakeholders.

This experience is just one of many that allows for diverse, intimate discussions and expands my leadership frameworks. I feel incredibly fortunate for the outstanding teaching I receive within the classroom and for Tuck’s commitment to continue leadership conversations outside the classroom as well.

The Center for Business, Government & Society is focused on meeting the evolving complexities facing business leaders in today’s global economy. In the context of globalization and technological advancement, business success increasingly depends on reconciling the interests of its immediate stakeholders with the broader, deeply intertwined interests of both governments and society. Business leaders adept at navigating these many interests will be better equipped and empowered to help build a more sustainable global economy.

Just got a confirmation that my packet has been submitted to the ADCOM for review. It's going to be a long two months of waiting!

For those of you waiting to hear on an interview invitation, looking at last year's thread it appears as though the majority of invites went out between Oct 28 and Nov 05, so there's still a few weeks to go.

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Straight Outta Q&A: What’s New, On-Campus Housing
Image
Greetings! Today we’re excited to resurrect a blog series from last spring, “Straight Outta Q&A.” While the questions we hear in our on-campus Q&A session (part of every prospective student visit) can run the gamut, some stick out as being really insightful and others we hear over and over again. Wouldn’t it be great if we could share those answers with all prospective students? We think so!

Q: What’s changing at Tuck? What has changed since Dean Slaughter started?

A: Part of what makes Tuck so special is its focus on the full-time two-year MBA. All of our resources are dedicated to this purpose, undiluted by PhD students, undergraduates, or even other forms of the MBA, like online or part-time programs. Having been on Tuck’s faculty since 2002, Dean Slaughter understands the importance of this. So we don’t see anything drastic happening any time soon!

That said, under Dean Slaughter, the Tuck MBA program is being made stronger than ever, and innovation and experimentation are paramount. Recent large initiatives include TuckGO and the Dean’s Fellows Program. This new program gives second-year students the unique opportunity to contribute toward the advancement of Tuck’s strategy. The Fellows teams work with school leadership on projects central to the current and future success of the MBA program. It allows students to bring their perspective much more concretely to leaders, giving the administration a better understanding of student needs and allowing them to put recommendations into practice as fast as possible.

Other recent changes have included the addition of an associate dean for innovation and growth, currently filled by marketing professor Punam Anand Keller, and the merger of two of our research centers into the Center for Business, Society, & Government.

Q: How many students get on-campus housing?

A: There are about 140 on-campus dorm rooms for first-year Tuckies who are coming without partners (all second-years live off campus). Because there’s always more demand than supply, the MBA Program Office conducts a lottery to determine who will fill the rooms. While dorm life can be great—the commute to that 8am class is hard to beat—there are many options for off-campus living too. Students coming to Tuck with a partner or family often live in nearby Sachem Village, but other housing options are available as well, including houses that are passed down from one class of Tuckies to another. Once you’re admitted, you’ll have resources to help you navigate all of this.

Tuck’s residential campus is welcoming to all members of the community, whether you live in a dorm or not. The location encourages immersion and helps build the close-knit community that Tuck is so well-known for.

 

Tuck 360 is awesome, but make sure you join us live too. You can register for a self-initiated visit/interview here (just make sure you’re coming within the deadline that corresponds to your particular application round).

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Retracing the Steps of a Survivor of the Armenian Genocide
Image
By Vahan Manukyan T’18

On October 12, investigative reporter Dawn Anahid MacKeen, author of The Hundred-Year Walk: An Armenian Odyssey, visited Tuck and Dartmouth. Her book tells the story of "one man’s courage in the face of the Armenian genocide and his granddaughter’s quest to tell his story." Her talk was very impressive and should touch every person who is part of humanity.

Image
As an Armenian, I cannot overemphasize the significance of the Genocide in our history. It was a tragic period of time for my nation—one that should never happen again to any nation.  Awareness of the genocide and education on its impact is crucial, which is why MacKeen’s talk was especially important.

MacKeen’s meeting with students and the Dartmouth community was educational and revealing in nature, as students learned about a part of history that was previously unknown to them. Some of my classmates who haven’t heard about Armenia before coming to Tuck were surprised to learn of this history—the impact and extent of which is difficult to describe in words.

MacKeen connected the history of what happened in Armenia at the beginning of the nineteenth century to the Holocaust and to what is happening today in Syria. What her grandfather went through is a story for the ages. The courage she had to tell her story and retrace history by going to Turkey and Syria is staggering. Her story of going through 100 years and breaking religion and ethnicity barriers is very admirable.

Dawn’s visit to Dartmouth speaks to the openness and level of education we have here at our school. I hope more people will be interested in reading her book, The Hundred-Year Walk, as it can offer revealing insights into a history that we are all part of.

I wouldn't worry just yet. Tuck does things the old fashioned way, printing off every piece of the application and ensuring it's all there before physically handing it off to the ADCOM. As long as you submitted by the EA deadline, your application is probably still in the very long printer queue.

Does anyone know if it hurts your chances to not schedule a live interview? I live in California and it's pretty expensive to travel all the way out there. I want to apply for the November round but I'm hesitant to submit if I have no chance. It looks like some of you received interview invites, do you know if they treat these applications equally?
