Hi guys! I'm applying to Tuck in R2, and am very nervous. I don't have a typical Business background, and previously worked in the publishing and digital media fields. I currently serve as a consultant in digital strategy. Tuck is my number one school, and I'm worried my background (or lack thereof) will harm my application. Additionally, I'm not as strong in Quant as many others in this thread – and my GMAT score can definitely be higher. Taking the exam again in December and hoping for a 720+. I'm an international student (from the Caribbean). I'm also scheduled for my in-person interview next week on-campus. Any advice for me?


For the interview I would suggest the following:

- Research the school inside out, know why Tuck meets your goals and plans, why you would excel in the unique, collaborative, non-urban and cohesive environment of Tuck
- Be likable - you'd probably interview with a 2nd year so make sure you have a natural conversation; answer questions but leave room for further conversation based on your responses, be prepared with those second level responses
- Have a good time there and show it :)

In general:

- Try to score as much as you can in the GMAT. No other go. What have you done to prepare yourself better this time?

FWIW, I wouldn't worry too much about it. I have spoken at length with a lot of alum, adcoms and other faculty and they truly will look at your entire profile.
I think it's best to focus on what you can add to the Tuck Fabric, your interview, and etc. I was referred to their class profile page where they told me to look at the range because while they do have an average for quant and gpa they do also consider strong fit of the applicant.
Also, look into MBA Math if you have the time...

We're getting close to the deadline! Very nerve-wracking, but also exciting as well.

Tuck's notice deadline is Dec 12, but has been known to start releasing decisions around Dec 11, so be sure to keep an eye on your email and phone on those days.

Please utilize the following chatroom to connect with other applicants in this exciting time!

It's hard to provide a fulsome candidate evaluation without more information -- what is it that you'd like to do post-MBA? Long term? How do these goals sync with your prior professional experience as a consultant in digital strategy and academic success? What are your extracurriculars and how can they improve the community at Dartmouth? How do you plan to be involved in the Tuck community outside the classroom? All of these things and more make up your strategic positioning, the personal brand that you market yourself with to the AdCom. If you can get a 720 GMAT and you have and good undergrad GPA from a good school, strategic positioning is what makes-or-breaks you. It's also the only then you have 100% control over.

Top-tier U.S. Schools like Tuck generally aim for 30-40% international students, which means in general that it's harder for international applicants to gain acceptance than domestic U.S. ones. However, it's also true that international applicants come from several countries disproportionately: India, China, and Pakistan. The Caribbean is still considered "international" but it is not as over-represented as these countries are, meaning your chances of acceptance are a little bit higher.

If talking to an admissions consultant about how to articulate your strategic positioning in your essays may be helpful to you, feel free to reach out for a free consultation. Best of luck to you!

In the past Tuck has called some applicants the evening before the deadline date--has anyone heard if this will be the case/gotten a decision already?

someone mentioned a candidate being accepted to Tuck a couple weeks ago (candidate posted to clearadmit) but I haven’t heard anything since. I feel like someone will update when accepted. The suspense is tough.

Today is the big day and several Tuck acceptances are on ClearAdmit but none so far on GMATClub. Does anyone know if Tuck sends out calls based on region similar to most other programs? Or is it random?
