Is Tuck Receptive to Re-applicants?

Most of the top MBA programs are receptive to re-applicants if a re-applicant makes certain to correct the perceived weakness(es) in their prior application. We have written a long article that discusses 7 Best Practices for Re-applicants, located here:

But what specifically about Tuck?

In our experience, Tuck is very receptive to re-applicants as long as you fix the prior shortcomings of your candidacy or application. One fact that underscores this is the fact that Tuck is often willing to give you feedback on your application if you did not gain admission. This practice means that when they identify an applicant that is in many ways attractive but perhaps fell short in some way – in the quality of the application they put forward, in their interview, or in one or two specific credentials such as the GMAT – they are seeking to encourage you to try again and to redirect your efforts to addressing the shortcoming of your application. We at MBA have helped candidates go from rejected to admission. The factors that needed to be strengthened with the new application have varied and have included the need for much stronger essays, better recommendations, an improved GMAT score, stronger extracurricular activities and better performance in the interview.

So, if you had a solid overall application but one flat recommendation, you need to reapply with a stellar application – including the essays – and stellar recommendations. If your GPA is solid but you applied with a less-than-ideal GMAT score, say around 640, you should strive to secure a much higher score, ideally in the 700s. If you did not put enough effort into your essays, but otherwise your credentials are competitive, you need to present a new application that shows clearly a great deal of effort in preparation and excellent content.

Success is possible!
