haha...I got the same e-mail today from BU but apparently my e-mail reads "...a Dean's Prize Scholarship – valued up to $35,000 per year." I guess it's +/-$5k - $15k based on a bunch of factors.

[#permalink] ### Show Tags 12 Aug 2008, 11:28 The only difference between 710 and 720 is a sneeze (minimal and nothing really applicable to the test). If they figured in GPA to this, they wouldn't have sent me the email. I have a 3.06 from UG. See ya in Boston next year Terp! lol, just kdding. SOLARIS - so GMAT is making a difference. Terp06 and i have 710-720 and you're is 740. I love it that we figure them out! BU - "Throw money at them and we'll get great candidates." Actually should work for them somewhat. terp06 wrote: Same. Congratulations! Through the Graduate Management Admission Search Service (GMASS), you have been identified as a preferred candidate for Boston University’s management programs. For the 2008 entering class, more than 75% of students with a similar GMAT score were admitted and received a Dean's Prize Scholarship – valued up to$30,000 per year.

That's wierd. You have a higher GMAT score than I do jallenmorris. They must be figuring GPA into this as well.

It seems like the Dartmouth Coach is pretty reliable and runs from morning to evening. Also, the Hanover Inn seems like a good option for staying the night before the interview/visit since the Dartmouth Coach drops you off there. Also, a car shouldn't be required if staying there, correct? Does anyone have experience with either of these options?

Has anyone stayed at the Courtyard or Residence Inn in Hanover? They appear to be about 3mi from campus and have a shuttle to/from campus...
cheers,

For the true Dartmouth/Hanover experience, I would highly recommend staying at the Hanover Inn on the Dartmouth green - especially if you're going to be getting there during the day time and you will have a chance to enjoy it and take in the scenery.

If you are going to be getting there late at night and just using it a crash pad - then yeah, go for the Courtyard or Residence Inn. I've never stayed at either but I'm sure they're fine.

You better have a really, really good reason for not making it on-campus. The only people that they are cutting some slack are international applicants. I live on the West Coast and they told me that they fully expect me to come on-campus to interview. It's for them to gauge fit with the school, as well as for you to gauge fit with the school and figure out whether its right for you. Tuck is different from other schools - they don't offer alumni interviews to domestic candidates unless Tuck invites you to participate in one (I am thinking that they only invite a small handful of students every year). However, everyone is allowed to have an applicant-initiated interview on-campus and this is what almost everyone does. Give their admissions office a call if you'd like more details or if you need to discuss your specific situation. _________________ Check out the new Career Forum http://gmatclub.com/forum/133 SVP Joined: 30 Apr 2008 Posts: 1887 Location: Oklahoma City Schools: Hard Knocks Followers: 40 Kudos [?]: 578 [0], given: 32 Re: Calling all Tuck Fall 2009 applicants!

Tuck definitely values visits and on campus interviews, and for a good reason...I think a lot of people love the rep and the idea of tuck. However, when they actually make it to Hanover they may have second doubts. Its a great school but the location definitely isnt for everyone. Even if you love the Tuck community, Hanover can really be a deal breaker...especially if you are married or bringing a gf/bf/fiance. I think more than any school in a big city (or within commutable distance) at a place like Tuck you really need your significant other (if you have one) to determine the possibility for a job that will further their career.

If you like the school, I would call the admissions office and see if they can make arrangements for you.

My wife is a work-at-home mom and runs her business online. She can desgin and make clothes from anywhere so location for her doesn't matter. It's not like she needs to go get a job in the community. We're both used to smaller town life.

right now I'm paying back law school loans, hospital bills for the birth of my son, and 2 trips to the ER in July for my daughter. I've actually taken 2 schools off my list I've had to use money for these extras that I was planning on using for app fees. It sucks, but that's life.

I would give their Admissions Office a call before taking it off the list and see what they have to say. I did notice that on their app they have a comments section for why you didn't visit - so there is room to explain why you didn't go. The question is whether the Tuck folks will think of your reason as "valid".

I hope it works out

Depends where you are flying from. Manchester NH is a lot closer and southwest flies there so its often cheaper dont know if there is a dartmouth coach there but definitely look into that. You car really isnt required, there were other people the same day as my visit who flew in and took the bus...some rented cars because they wanted to scope out the area to get the true sense of how remote it is (good idea).
