Hi,
I am wondering if an applicant initiated interview is critical to getting in. Getting to Dartmouth is expensive and costs me 2 vacation days during a period where I have a lot of work priorities.

Can someone please advise on how significantly not initiating an interview hurts my odds? I am happy to interview on campus if the AdCom requests, but the costs are significant.

It definitely doesn't take you out of running, but it likely is a large plus on your application as it shows dedication to getting into Tuck.

Does anyone know if you're able to update your resume after signing up for the applicant initiated interview? I'm hoping to lock down a date before slots fill up but I want to spend this week tweaking my resume beforehand...

Same here, i submitted my crappy resume. But good thing is you have to take hardcopy for interview as students wont have access to it. I am planning on updating it before that and taking that with me. If not ill just email admissions and tell them

I think you should try for the applicant-initiated interview if you can, definitely shows seriousness. I scheduled mine at the end of a business trip in the US, landed in Boston at 7:30 PM and drove to a hotel near Hanover by 10 PM for an interview the next day.

Regarding the resume/CV, I replaced my resume on the Tuck system a few days before the interview and took hard copies as well. My interviewer actually had my updated copy with her, so you can say they stay on top of things generally. Now I replaced my resume again after the interview (one minor edit), which I am submitting with the rest of my application for R1.

Are you the same as the person above? Did you end up getting accepted to Tuck?
