Has anybody started the enrolment process? Or is everybody waiting for deposit deadlines?

Can someone share details on the process, how long it takes etc. Surprisingly, there aren't many details in the admit letter or the admitted students website.


If I recall from when I did it, it's quite easy. Basically, all you have to do is click accept the offer in the ApplyYourself portal, check a couple boxes, and pay the deposit (by credit card online or you can mail a check I think). The only other next step that I've done is have my official transcript sent. And you'll have to do the FAFSA form, but that's not dependent on accepting Tuck. Housing (unless you're looking off campus, which is what I did), pre-orientation trips, and other stuff isn't due for awhile. There's a Timeline on the admitted students site of stuff you have to do which helps a bit.


Sending my official transcripts.

But FAFSA is for US students. I'm an international. So any idea on I-20 form? And what about employment verification? I didn't find anything on these on the admitted students website.

No idea for I-20 (US Citizen here). On the website I see:

March 21: DUE: International Application for Tuck Financial Aid (non-U.S. citizens in January round)

Is the I-20 separate from this? If so, just send an email to them. I'm sure you're not the only one wondering this. Employment verification/background checks have not started yet, as far as I know. I think with a class of 270, they don't have to get started quite as early as some of the other schools.

No that is different to the I-20. I have emailed them with all my questions but I guess they must have been very busy on Friday and today.

Do you know if the transcripts need to be in an unopened and sealed envelop stamped at the flap or can I just send an opened official copy.

Let's move this discussion into the admitted students thread so we don't clog it up for R3 applicants
http://gmatclub.com/forum/tuck-dartmouth-2016-class-calling-all-admitted-students-165078.html

To answer both your queries, you don't need to do anything on the I-20 front initially. Send if your FAFSA or financial aid application, wait for their response before working on the I-20. Something can correct me but I don't think they use a formal verification service like Re Vera. As for transcripts I sent an unopened and sealed version because I was given that option when ordering them but I'm not totally sure.

Thanks. That's a good idea; I didn't know there was an admitted students thread as well.

So who's applying in R3?

Yes, this post is best on the admitted students thread.
But to quickly chime in on your question about the admission packet, there really isn't that much in the packet. Most of the helpful info is online. The packet has a brochure, your official admit letter, and a nice gift.

Would scholarship letters have been included in the online admit letter? Or does that come later? Is it digital?

Scolarship information was shared during the admit call and later in the physical admit letter. There is no mention of it online.

Tuck Women go to UCLA for Stock Pitch Competition [#permalink]

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Tuck Women go to UCLA for Stock Pitch Competition
Image

Michaela is a T’15 who lived in Asia before Tuck, working in sales and trading for a bulge bracket investment bank. She is pursuing a career in Investment Management after Tuck and will be co-chair of the Investment Club next year.

 

A few weeks ago, a team of three Tuckies traveled to UCLA to compete in the UCLA MBA stock pitch competition against 11 other top MBA programs in the US & Canada. 

Our pitch team (myself and two other first year women) competed at the Cornell Women in Investing Pitch Showcase back in November.  After having a wonderful time and recognizing how much we learned, we signed on to compete at UCLA through the Tuck Investment Club.   The format of the pitch competitions vary, but for UCLA we had one week to prepare two pitches: one from a pre-determined list of our first round stocks (we chose Deere & Company), and a final round buy or sell recommendation on Green Mountain Coffee Roasters.  In ill-fated timing, the stock selections were released the day before Winter Carnival, but we managed to get some work in over the weekend and also relax with our classmates at the Winter Carnival festivities. 

After choosing to work on Deere in the first round, we set out to consolidate our research into a presentation for each stock.  The formal 12-minute presentation in front of a panel of investment industry professionals was followed by a 20-minute Q&A session, so we worked hard to make sure each of us had an area of expertise for potential questions from the judges. We applied core concepts from our fall semester Management Communication course to create a cohesive presentation and ensure our verbal delivery of information was concise and easy to follow.  We utilized concepts from our Capital Markets and Corporate Finance courses to work on our valuation, and also spent many hours on one of the ten Bloomberg terminals in the Feldberg Library.

Before we knew it, we turned in our presentations and it was time to fly to LA.  We hopped on the Dartmouth Coach after classes wrapped up on Thursday and were at Boston's Logan airport in plenty of time to grab dinner and board our flight.

The pitch competition started bright and early on Friday morning, especially for those of us still on East Coast time.  As we greeted fellow competitors in the hotel lobby, our team was thrilled to see a familiar face from our previous Cornell competition- a female competitor from Booth.  As it turned out, our three-person Tuck team and our Booth friend accounted for all of the women in the competition, despite having over 40 competitors.  While our team looked different than many of the other teams, we were focused solely on executing the best pitch possible and representing Tuck to the best of our abilities.

After the first round concluded, we were approached by the Dean of UCLA Anderson who commended us on our team diversity and mentioned in her keynote remarks that she wanted more teams to be inclusive of women for next year’s competition.  In reflecting on why so few women compete at stock pitch competitions, I think the reasons are twofold: first, there are simply fewer women than men who are interested in pursuing a career in investment management.  The second reason likely has to do with inclusiveness of team selection at different schools, and that is where Tuck shines.

Our small community means that if you are motivated to do something, whether to start a club or compete as part of a Tuck team at an MBA stock pitch competition, you are likely to encounter encouragement from the MBA Program Office and support from your fellow students.  After we posted a picture of our team on the Tuck Facebook page and mentioned that we were the only all-female team at the competition, we received countless comments of support from T’14s and T’15s, and even had a hashtag: #GoTuckGirlsGo.  As a co-chair of the Investment Club next year, I look forward to continuing to encourage diversity on our pitch competition teams and ensuring that our process is as inclusive as possible.

Tuck alumni all over the world are generous with their time, so we were unsurprised to see that one of the competition judges was a T’86 who is a portfolio manager at a large West Coast investment firm. Thankfully, we couldn’t claim any special treatment as all teams competed under team monikers to eliminate any bias.

There are many opportunities for Tuck teams to participate in competitions with other MBA schools- from consulting case competitions, sports analytics, sustainable investing, real estate and stock pitches. It is a great way to work in teams outside of formal classes, to represent Tuck, and to network with other MBA students.  I highly recommend getting involved!

I was waitlisted and eventually dinged during the previous admissions year. To initiate my feedback session I believe I just emailed admissions asking for a feedback session. The session was an extremely useful experience. I took copious notes and made sure to note every area they suggested was a weakness in my application. Over the following 6 months, I attacked each weakness, reapplied, and was accepted! Tuck students and AdCom communicated to me that by utilizing the feedback session and making efforts to improve the areas they suggest, applicants have a much greater chance of admission. Tuck looks quite favorably on re-applicants that make a concerted effort to improve on areas of weakness.

My condolences on the ding, but if a Tuck MBA is your dream, don't give up. Best of luck!

What were some of the feedback comments that you received? I am not applying to Tuck but I am just curious which specific areas admission committee views as important when making decisions.

The Box Food Truck comes to Tuck [#permalink]

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: The Box Food Truck comes to Tuck
Image

Though this isn't my personal story, I'm so proud of our friends who've worked tirelessly to bring this food truck to Tuck, that I had to share!

T'14 friends of ours (featured in this article) have been working over the past year to found The Box, Dartmouth's (and Tuck's) first-ever food truck.

The idea for their food truck business grew out of the Introduction to Entrepreneurship class both students took during their first year (winter term) at Tuck.  Since then, they've continued working on the project out of the classroom to refine their idea; construct a business plan and an infrastructure; build a team of other Tuckies, TPs, and undergraduates; and recruit supporters -- all to bring the idea to fruition.  One vital member of their team is actually a Tuck Partner who happened to work as an executive chef prior to moving to Hanover (for all of you prospective TPs curious about intersections between the partner community and Tuck, and finding employment opportunities in the Upper Valley!)

In any event, all of us here on campus are thrilled that the Box launched today (!!!) which means--for all you lucky ducks just starting your Tuck careers this fall--it will be serving lunch, dinner, and late night munchies to you when you arrive on campus this fall.

Check out the Box's facebook and kickstarter pages for more info!

@tylerhogge I am not a re-applicant, I was accepted on first attempt but I would be happy to answer any questions you may have over the coming months before you reapply. Feel free to PM me your email address if you want. Tuck has got to look at re-applicants favourably. Because of the culture it has, Tuck really wants you to want them before they will admit you. If Tuck is the school you really want to go to, then reapply, apply in EA round, address the weaknesses from the feedback session and they will see that you really want to attend Tuck.
