MBAHanover2018 Wow, that screen name shows you're pretty serious about this! What is it about Tuck that makes it your top choice? I can think of a few things myself but wondering from your point of view.

True..if meeting really quality people and build a lifetime network is one of your goals of getting an MBA then Tuck is the way to go. I also am big believer in the core curriculum.

Tuck is definitely a unique school that has an amazing community & alumni network. I also personally prefer business school that has only one MBA degree.

Re: Calling all Tuck (Dartmouth) Applicants: (2019 Intake) Class of 2021! [#permalink]
I had the opportunity to attend the Tuck coffee chat event this morning in Philly (Amy at the Admissions Team led the event and she was super nice!) and here are a few useful information that I would like to share with everyone:

1. At moment, Tuck plans to open the online application system in around mid July or so, and the first day of on campus interview is expected to be August 31. Please note that you will only be able to register for on campus interview around end of July. This year, Tuck commits to make the process as most efficient as possible for all the candidates.

2. If one candidate gets wait-listed in round 1, Tuck will reevaluate his/her application with the round 2 pool of candidates.

3. Tuck is extremely supportive with helping the partners of admitted students to be part of the Tuck community (i.e. accommodation, low cost gym, audit classes at Tuck, etc.) and that's something that makes the school unique!

Guys,

Just wanted to remind that we will have a live chat event with Amy from Tuck Admissions Team at 12 pm EST Friday 7/13 (which is tomorrow noon for US candidates!). I am pretty sure Amy will be more than happy to answer any questions from gmatclub community but if we can try to avoid questions that we can easily find answers on Tuck website, that would be great. Below is the link to all Tuck's essay and letter of recommendation questions for this year.
