FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Leading Tuck’s Women in Business Conference
Image
Image
By Karishma Roopchand T'17

Summer internships are in full-swing for Tuckies, and so is planning for Tuck’s annual Women in Business Conference (WIBC) which will run from October 14th to 16th, 2016. WIBC is one of many initiatives at Tuck that aim to enable and support women by providing them with strong networks and skill-building opportunities. The conference brings together current students, prospective students and alumni for a weekend of workshops and discussion.

As one of four WIBC Co-chairs, all of whom are rising second-years, a lot of my time that’s not consumed by my summer internship is spent on planning and logistics for the fall conference. Like most events at Tuck, WIBC is entirely student-run, meaning that students are responsible for every detail of the conference, from deciding on the speaker line-up to budgeting to managing the day-of logistics. The ability to run conferences is only one of the many leadership opportunities that Tuck provides. Leadership development is central to the Tuck experience, allowing students the chance to run businesses, take on consulting projects and to work on entrepreneurial ventures, all of which are complemented by formal leadership courses that are baked into the core curriculum. 

My decision to become a WIBC Co-chair was highly influenced by my own experience at the conference as a prospective student two years ago.  The conference was my first exposure to the Tuck campus, and provided a weekend-long immersion into the tight-knit community that I believe distinguishes Tuck from its counterparts. The weekend also afforded me an early opportunity to meet some of my future classmates, many of whom I count today as close friends. From the moment I arrived, I was welcomed by current students and alumni who gushed about their time at Tuck, and who were eager to connect me with other Tuckies with similar interests and passions. I was stopped by countless students throughout the course of the weekend who, not recognizing my face, wanted to introduce themselves. I left campus feeling empowered by the panels and discussion that the conference sparked, and also with a strong sense that Tuck was a place where I would feel uniquely supported by a community of highly accomplished people who are all invested in one another’s success.

My fellow Co-chairs and I have been hard at work to make this year’s event equal parts inspiring and intimate. We are excited for the theme of this year’s conference, “Dare to Disrupt,” which is meant to promote the idea of challenging the status quo, particularly with respect to the current statistics around women in management positions. Additionally, we have planned a much-anticipated line-up of speakers and panelists, including a keynote speech by Elyse Allan T’84, President and CEO of GE Canada. Attendees will also have the opportunity to attend a mock class and hear from current students and alumni about life at Tuck and beyond.

I credit WIBC as a critical experience, which strongly motivated my decision to attend Tuck. My three Co-chairs and I first met at WIBC, and we are excited for this year’s prospective applicants to have the same opportunity to forge lasting bonds.

Karishma is a second year at the Tuck School of Business. She grew up in Connecticut and graduated from Brandeis University with a major in Economics. Prior to Tuck, Karishma spent four years in the finance industry before transitioning to education, working for a boutique education consulting firm in Boston. At Tuck, she is a Women in Business Co-chair, a Net Impact Co-chair and a Tuck Admissions Associate. She is spending her summer in a strategy consulting role at Parthenon-EY.

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Club Spotlight: Tuck Outdoor Club
Image
Inclusiveness, camaraderie, participation—these are Tuck traditions. From club meetings to student-run symposia to volunteering in the wider community, you'll find ways to get involved at Tuck. And there's no doubt you’ll be able to do a lot of this while outside enjoying the beautiful New England landscape. Spending two years at Tuck provides a great opportunity to embrace all that nature offers.

Perennially one of the most popular clubs in school, the Tuck Outdoor Club encourages people of all experience levels to simply get together and spend time together in the natural beauty of the Upper Valley. Never been on a hike?  No problem, we can show you the ropes!  Climbed El Capitan backwards twice in the same day this summer while blindfolded? Great! We would love to have you share your stories and help some of the aspiring newbies.

Many Tuckies start getting a taste of Tuck Outdoor events at Admitted Students Weekend, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Historically events include hiking, kayaking/canoeing, biking, cross-country skiing, rock climbing, snowshoeing, ice climbing, and of course cabin nights – start the countdown to Moosilauke now! That said, we are always open to new ideas and want to make sure everyone has a chance to get outside (and perhaps outside of their comfort zone a little) during their time at Tuck. We look forward to seeing everyone on campus in the fall, where we’ll hopefully be able to get outside as much as possible in the beautiful New England fall weather!

Hello people..!! I am targeting early actions round this season. However, I am made to believe that you cannot get into Tuck if you don't possess international work experience. This has rattled me. Can anyone confirm the truth in such claims? Does anybody know somebody who is from India and got in Tuck without having international work experience? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: On the Road with Tuck Admissions
Image
Tuck’s campus in Hanover, NH serves as a base camp to the world. Students, faculty, and staff constantly venture out and return to our immersive community to reflect on their experiences and share newfound insights. Well here in the Admissions Office, let the venturing begin!

From now until November, Tuck’s Admissions Team will be coming and going, rarely leaving the office with the same combination of people twice. We’ll be in Latin America, Asia, Europe, and all across the United States. We’ll host big Tuck Receptions, small Tuck Coffees, and join other schools at Forté Forums, Consortium MAPS events, and various other fairs. We’ll reconnect with Tuck alumni around the world and start getting to know whole lot of new people too. We’ll talk about Tuck and the application process until we can talk no more! We’ll come back to Hanover with full inboxes and fewer business cards; tired eyes, but smiling faces! We’ll fill out official trip reports, share our favorite moments over coffee, and start getting really excited about the potential of the next class (T’19s!).

Check out our website to see when we’ll be near you, or create a Tuck profile including your current location and we’ll email you an invitation directly (better yet, do both!). Registering for an event in your neck of the woods is a great way to introduce yourself and start getting to know us.

See you soon!

Current Tuckie here. Let me dispel this myth: you need not have worked overseas to be admitted to Tuck!

I have plenty of classmates from India who worked exclusively in India prior to coming to Tuck. I'm sure you're referencing the application section asking you to list international experience: admissions is interested in ANY international experience (work, travel, study)

Hope that helps!

Sorry if I am sounding cynical but what about a person who has never been out of country?

Thanks for your help.

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Post-Graduation Reflections
Image
It was a little over two and a half years ago that I got the call from Dawna Clarke. “Congratulations, Aditya! You’ve been accepted to the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.” I packed my bags and set off to Hanover, New Hampshire with exactly zero MBA’s in my professional network (I worked in my family’s tea manufacturing business) and only a rudimentary understanding of what the journey would be like. Having received the coveted “piece of paper” just three days prior to beginning this post, in a spectacular, albeit rainy, ceremony, I feel compelled to re-live it one last time.

The First Year

It all started on a boat. One of my first (and most enduring) memories of Tuck is trying to sleep on a bed of oars inside a small sailboat off the coast of Maine along with nine other Tuckies and thinking, “Will I be able to do this?” Outward Bound was the quintessential pre-MBA, team building exercise and set the tone for my first year at Tuck. It taught me to embrace opportunities with two arms and a leg. The fall term was a blur of new experiences and I was ready; decision modeling, networking with recruiters, launching my venture, learning how terrible I am at ice hockey, and drinking Fireball at Murphy’s. I felt like I was being pulled in a hundred different directions at once. I recruited heavily for consulting as well as marketing. Coming from a family-owned business, this was incredible learning on how the corporate world worked. At the same time, I had linked up with three other Tuckies to launch “Roots,”a platform for Tuck students to share our love for tea. We automated the process of making masala chai (a source of amusement as well as appreciation) and sold it at the local coffee shop—it was great fun! With outstanding courses like GEM (General Economics for Managers) and the boiler-room pressure of recruiting to keep us busy, the winter term whizzed by. Spring 2015 had in store for me two main experiences; a Global Insight Expedition (GIX) to Georgia and Armenia with 20 other Tuckies, and my First-Year Project with ConAgra Foods. These experiential endeavors represent some of my fondest memories and resulted in some of the greatest friends I made at Tuck.

Summer

My recruiting efforts resulted in a summer internship at General Mills Inc., the packaged food giant based in Minneapolis. That’s right, I was going from Mumbai to Minnesota. Talk about change! But more importantly, my love affair with all things food had actually become a source of $$’s! Summer 2015 was one of the most enjoyable and professionally satisfying experiences I’d had. I worked on two main projects. The first one involved sizing and finding opportunities to formulate snacks for the quickly burgeoning Paleo and vegan markets in the US. The second one involved leading an actual product launch of a new line of energy bars—everything from ingredient sourcing to pricing and distribution. The icing on the cake was getting a full time offer to join them post-Tuck. To celebrate, I took a trip to the Salkantay Mountains in Peru for an exhilarating five-day hike and came back to Tuck refreshed and ready for second year.

The Second Year

If the first year was like a rock concert, the second year was like a Bach symphony—calming, reflective, and exceedingly enjoyable. With recruiting out of the way, I could take on projects, form relationships, and learn things that will hopefully live on well beyond Tuck. The first such opportunity arose at the end of fall when I was recruited to be part of the On-site Global Consulting (OGC) team for the American dairy giant Land O’ Lakes in Kenya. With 5 other amazing Tuckies (“Habari,” friends!), I spent two weeks in Kenya and we developed a market entry strategy for the company into Kenya’s dairy feed industry. It was a one-of-a-kind experience. The second such opportunity was the honor and privilege of co-leading the India Fun Trek along with my buddy, Rajeev, in spring 2016. We took 32 Tuckies across six cities in India and everything about it, from the planning (which started half a year in advance) to the last beer we all had together in Mumbai, was one big party. Apart from these two projects, I spent most of my second year learning how to ski (I’m proud to report that I can now ski blues), enjoying my elective classes (Negotiations with Prof. Feiler, best class ever!) and hiking the unrivaled New Hampshire wilderness.

Biggest Learnings

The most valuable quality I have developed in the last two years is the ability to embrace my greatest strengths proudly and acknowledge my greatest weaknesses humbly. Tuck naturally does a good job of selecting grounded individuals (for the most part), but it is equally important to be able to own what you are good at. The first few months was an exercise in “imposter syndrome.” Rubbing shoulders with the kind of people I can now proudly call my friends (marines, literal rock stars, entrepreneurs and yes, consultants extraordinaire) was overwhelming, especially since I was the “baby” of the class from an age and work experience perspective. Living and working among them, being critiqued and appreciated by them, helped me get a clear, objective understanding of my skills and deficiencies. For example, I learned that I naturally excel at creating new opportunities and establishing networks. On the flip side, I also discovered that I have a lot to learn as far as managing/growing the day-to-day. This kind of learning, the learning about oneself, requires equal parts interaction and introspection. Tuck’s location in the woods of New Hampshire, provided me a great natural environment for this sort of internal growth.

Road Ahead

With just a week left before I start my full time role in General Mills, Inc. as an Associate Marketing Manager, I am equal parts excited and nostalgic. As full and enriching as I felt my Tuck experience was, there were innumerable more skills I could have learned, resources I could have leveraged, and things I could have done in those 609 days at my disposal. However, I can take heart in the fact that I am now part of network of people that, long after the last slope has been skied and the last lecture attended, will inspire me to be the best version of myself I can be. Here’s to the outstanding faculty, peers, administrators and of course, the unmatchable pancakes at Four Aces, which made my last two years in Hanover, New Hampshire, truly special. 

Aditya “Adi” Shah is a newly-minted Tuck MBA from Mumbai, India. Prior to Tuck, he worked in his family’s tea manufacturing and exports business in India and Russia. He is deeply passionate about all things food, and post-Tuck will join General Mills Inc. as an Associate Marketing Manager.

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: 7 Steps to Keep Warm from Head to Toe This Winter
Image
Image
Megan Kelso is a freelance graphic designer and illustrator for stationery products. You can see her work at http://www.meganlkelso.com. Megan grew up in Ithaca, New York, studied art at Colgate University, and then lived and worked in Washington, D.C. for several years. She now lives in Sachem with her husband Mark, a T’17.

We know it's far away, but you can never be too prepared! Here's some advice by Megan Kelso TP'17 on what you should bring with you to prepare for the winter. Having lived most of her life in the coldest, snowiest places in the U.S., Megan developed a few winter clothing tips and tricks over the years. She shares 7 steps to keep you warm this winter—as they say, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes.

1.) Base Layers

I wear base layers under my everyday clothes when it’s below about 15°F. Polypropylene and wool are the warmest and best if you’ll be spending a lot of time outside. Silk base layers are also warm and comfortable, and jockey waffles are a classic. Fleece-lined leggings are good, under jeans or layered over long underwear, when you won’t be very active or outside too long. However, if you really need to be warm, don’t wear cotton (fleece) as the layer closest to your skin.

For the warmest layering, follow this pattern: man made/natural/man made. Wear a synthetic fabric (preferably polypropylene or another absorbent athletic material) next to your skin, then follow that with a thick natural fiber, like a wool sweater, and follow that with a waterproof coat of synthetic material. 

2.) Wool Socks

Nothing works as well as wool socks to keep your feet warm, and no wool is as warm and soft as Merino wool. Look for brands like Smartwool, People Socks, or Darn Tough Socks, and “100% wool” somewhere in the description. It’s better to wear one pair of good socks than to layer two mediocre pairs, because that will reduce circulation to your feet and make them colder.

3.) Hat and Scarf

Keeping your head warm makes a big difference in how warm your body feels overall. Again, wool is the best material. A fleece-lined wool hat is even better, since it prevents the wind blowing through the knit.  Also, make sure your hat completely covers your ears. You’ll also want a big scarf to wrap around your neck and bury your chin and nose into.

4.) Mittens and Toe Warmers

Mittens are warmer than gloves, because your fingers can keep each other warm. You can get big down mittens for skiing, but fleece-lined wool mittens are the best for everyday wear. Real leather gloves are also pretty warm, and a little fancier if you’re dressing up. Thin cotton or fleece gloves are ok, but worse than wearing nothing if they get wet.

 If you're going to be outside for a while, and your feet or hands always get cold, get some warming packets like HotHands or Toasti Toes. Toe warming packets seem to get hotter than the ones meant for hands, so I use toe warming packets for both hands and feet.

5.) Down Coat

If you have nothing else on this list, get a warm winter coat. A 100% down coat is the warmest, and will drastically improve your comfort over the winter. For ladies, I recommend a coat that is longer than thigh-length and has a belt at the waist, to prevent wind from blowing up the coat. A hood will be greatly appreciated when it’s snowing to keep your hair dry.

6.) Waterproof Winter Boots

There is nothing worse than walking around in the winter with wet feet. Get some waterproof (not “water-resistant”) boots that go mid-calf or higher, or else snow will seep into the top. In a few weeks, you’ll see a ton of people sporting LL Bean and Sorel boots around campus. Because they’re unlined, Bean boots are not quite as warm as Sorels, but some people don’t like Sorels because they’re a little more heavy and clunky. You don’t have to go with brand-name boots, any waterproof snow boot will work. If you live off campus, you might consider wearing “commuting boots” and changing shoes once you get inside.

7.) Sweaters, skirts, and pants in thick winter materials

Wool, tweed, fleece, silk, and thick cotton sweaters are popular in New England for a reason: they’re great at protecting against the bitter, wet weather. If you add more of these fabrics into your everyday clothes, you’ll be noticeably warmer during the day. Also remember to layer, because it’s still warm and toasty inside!

Hello people..!! I am targeting early actions round this season. However, I am made to believe that you cannot get into Tuck if you don't possess international work experience. This has rattled me. Can anyone confirm the truth in such claims? Does anybody know somebody who is from India and got in Tuck without having international work experience? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance


Current Tuckie here. Let me dispel this myth: you need not have worked overseas to be admitted to Tuck!

I have plenty of classmates from India who worked exclusively in India prior to coming to Tuck. I'm sure you're referencing the application section asking you to list international experience: admissions is interested in ANY international experience (work, travel, study)

Hope that helps!

Sorry if I am sounding cynical but what about a person who has never been out of country?

Thanks for your help.

PS: Would you mind chatting with me sometime? I have some queries specific to my profile.

Tuck - Admission Trends!



Hi Everyone, I am posting here an analysis of admission trends and acceptance chances at Tuck based on our accumulated forum data of Tuck applicants. We have analysed our forum data of Tuck applicants from 2012 to 2016 to determine acceptance chances by GMAT score, admission rounds, industry, etc. Since the data used for this analysis is self-reported, it's advised to use findings of this analysis with discretion. They are meant to give only a general idea of admission scenario at Tuck. Don't presume that these findings will hold true all the time.

We would welcome any comments, opinions, suggestions or anything else that you might have to say about the findings of this analysis.


YOY Acceptance Rate and Avg GMAT of Applicants



Sample Size: 1849 Applicants

Acceptance Rate by GMAT Score



  • Although it is quite common to see increase in acceptance chances as you score higher on GMAT, what struck me while analyzing Tuck's data is the huge gap between rate of interview invitation and rate of admission; Both have difference of average 40 percentage points. We have not seen difference of this magnitude in any other schools. (See: Columbia, LBS, Fuqua, and Consortium)
  • This finding leads us to conclude that although Tuck applicants have higher chance of interview invitation than applicants at other top schools, real competition starts from interview and you have to perform really well on interview to increase your acceptance chances.

Sample Size: 993 Applicants

Acceptance Rate by Admission Round



Sample Size: 1821 Applicants

Acceptance Rates of Applicants in Different Age Groups



Sample Size: 689 Applicants

Acceptance rates of applicants from various industries



  • The first chart - line chart - shows acceptance rates of applicants from various industries and the pie chart next to it shows industry-wise allocation of applicants.

Sample Size: 861 Applicants

Acceptance Rates of Applicants from Various Regions

As I said earlier, we welcome your views, counter-views, suggestions, etc on the analysis. Thank you!
