You've from now to about August to party. Don't miss this chance of a lifetime! Quit your job ASAP and enjoy leisure for the last time in many years to come (at least until you repay your B-school credit).

Congrats.

KUDOS
+26 yr old white male...born raised schooled and work in Pacific Northwest
+710 GMAT (taken twice: best V=45, best Q=46...I believe Tuck takes the best individual scores if you've taken it more than once)
+3.65 with double major in undergrad (Finance & Economics): Small Private University (well known regionally, but a no-name to anyone else)
+Played varsity baseball in college, helped run the student investment fund and was a "Certified" academic tutor (got paid to tutor other students in econ and accounting)
+3-plus yrs experience in investment research/analysis at a well-known investment management/mutual fund firm in a unique niche within the industry (while it falls under the general label of "finance," I was actually given an extraordinary view into the buy-side and got to work with some REALLY bright people). Specifically, I work with this firms' hedge fund of funds team analyzing hedge fund managers.
+Authored research notes on capital markets and hedge fund performance.
+Led efforts to innovate how we view/analyze equity factor exposures (in layman's terms, uncompensated risk) in our hedge fund-of-fund portfolios.
+CFA Charterholder
+Teach basic "Stocks 101" class to middle school students with Junior Achievement
+Serve on Events Committee of Non-Profit focusing on children's literacy in the Seattle area.

My kicker at Tuck was the interview, which I did in early November. If you want to get in to Tuck and you don't live in Fiji, you should make every effort to do the self-initiated interview and visit. Interviewing with a totally chill 2nd yr student, I spoke about how difficult it will be to leave the close-knit team of junior analysts at my firm when I go back to school (it will) and I was incredibly relaxed the whole time. I kept in touch with my interviewer (for essay advice) and he gave me his buddy's e-mail to give me some insights into the Tuck Investment Club. When I spoke with his friend on the phone, the friend told me, unsolicited, that I had done well in the interview. At that point (before my app was finished) I knew I had a shot. When they called yesterday, they mentioned again that I left the interviewer with a great impression and they are excited for me to come to Tuck.

I am still completely flattered and completely satisfied with my effort. I put some serious time into the GMAT and the apps, and this is sweet vindication.

If anyone has any further questions about Tuck or my experience, please let me know.
