Got an interview invite today. There are no slots for off campus, even when I opened the email 15 minutes after receiving it :(

Hi guys. Wishing all of you a very Happy new year!

I needed some input on the interview process for Tuck. I have received an interview invite, which is scheduled for next week in Mumbai. If someone can share their insights on the process and structure of the interview, it would be extremely beneficial and much appreciated :)


For the on campus ones, they were very standard MBA style -- why an MBA, why now, why Tuck, etc. No surprises in my experience. Good luck!


Brilliant! Thanks a lot for the input airo :) I got done with the interview and it was a good experience. Fingers crossed now.

I visited Tuck a few weeks ago and loved it! GMAT 700 (Q43 V42), 3.4 GPA from a top liberal arts, want to move from marketing to social impact. Any idea what my chances are??

Honestly, applying to any top 10 program is kind of a crapshoot, but there are ways to better your chances.

1) Have you submitted an application already? If you haven't, I would suggest waiting till next year as R3 is known to be significantly harder than the other rounds.

2) I am sure you're aware of this, but your Quant score is quite low for Tuck. Do you have a way to show you can handle the quantitative classes? You didn't list your major, but if you had a lot of math courses in undergrad you should be fine. If you're applying next year, I would give the GMAT another shot.

3) In your application/interview make sure to tell Tuck why you liked it so much. I too went to a liberal arts college and is a main reason why Tuck resonates with me. I think it is important that you share this because they want people who want to be there and not necessarily the people who have the highest stats.

4) Have solid recommendations. I don't mean by CEO's or the some politician. Get managers who you've known you for a couple of years and that you're close to. You will be surprised how far a strong, authentic recommendation can take you.

Best of luck!

Yes, aware my quant score is low for Tuck. I didn't take quant classes in college but my job is very quant focused and data/analytics heavy, so I made sure to really stress that in my essays and in my interview. I also very much stressed why I wanted to go to Tuck and picked out things that were specific to the school such as the size, location, etc.

I appreciate all of your help!! Fingers crossed!!

For Tuck, round 3 isn't significantly harder than other rounds. It's the April one which is extremely tough for any one to make a breakthrough but Jan is still around the same mark of difficulty as other rounds before it

Sorry, I was under the impression that R3 = April per the deadline table on this thread. But yes, my comment was in reference to the April round. Thanks for the clarification
