Thanks for sharing! These are hard interview questions. This will require quite a bit of prep to answer well.

As to legacy, I think it’s a very personal question and will be different for everyone. It’s really about what matters to you, how you want to be remembered by others and what impact you want to make to better the world… And also, how does this fit with the rest of your applications, your pursuit of the business school, and your overall strength.

You could use a personal example such as a reference to a family member or someone who inspired you who left a legacy… maybe your grandpa passed away and as you look at his life and the legacy he left, and how no matter what he did, he was always able to unite people around the common cause and finish the job. He is remembered for his integrity and his word. In today’s world, words seem to be very cheap and that makes being a man of your word somewhat of a unique trait. I’m not sure if it’s a legacy but I would like to be remembered as a man or a woman of their word and I would like to set that example for my children and grandchildren just like my grandfather did for me.

Ultimately it doesn’t matter what it is, it is hopefully some thing that aligns well with your essays and your application and reinforces a common theme. It would not be helpful if it’s completely unrelated to your goals and your applications. It makes it weird and disorganized. (Granted, sometimes you may use this opportunity to highlight a big accomplishment of yours that you didn’t have a chance to bring up in the essays or that perhaps wasn’t very clear in the applications but I wouldn’t say anything random 😬)

My 2 cents

Thanks bb

I agree that the response will be personal but I was mainly trying to understand the direction/domain others were answering it in. I believe the question is less about Legacy in life but more about the legacy one would want to leave at Tuck. Now, I have a response for how I would contribute or make an impact at Tuck that matches/flows with my background and strengths and is consistent with my essays. But if that question is already asked, then I can’t repeat stuff about clubs/specific activities. Other than speaking in generalities - similar to the hypothetical/dummy response you provided above (nothing wrong in that)- I am struggling to find a better type of response.

Re: Calling all Tuck MBA Applicants: 2022 Intake [Class of 2024] [#permalink]
I'm interviewing this Saturday evening from India.
I messed up one of the dates for my roles in the resume and I've already emailed the adcom regarding the change but haven't heard back. Should I mention this in my interview as a clarification because I'm not sure if the interviewer picked up the updated resume or if they even attached the updated resume with my application.
Any pointers ? 😅

Hi all! Does anyone have a sense of how sensitive Tuck is to GMAT score? My score is 710 and struggling to get more, hoping this is not a deal breaker

GMAT is one of the most important aspects I’d say.

Depends on the applicant pool and your profile, but it definitely helps alot if you have average GMAT score or above average

I guess as always, the answer is it depends.

Do remember that GMAT is just one aspect of the application and not the entirety of it. If all other aspects of the profile are strong, there is nothing to say you cannot go to a top school with a 710. Just my 2 cents on it.

Good luck
