I'd say it may be a bit of a stretch.

What are your goals? Why do you want an MBA? More importantly, why do you want a Tuck MBA? If you've masterfully answered those questions that will definitely help. However, the average GMAT at Tuck is ~720 and you may be competing in a demographic where the average GMAT is 750+, which puts you at a bit of a disadvantage.

Just my $.02
