Well done! Were you also accepted at HBS in Round 3? Could you share your profile with us? I'd love to know what it takes to be admitted in Round 3.

Best,

Thanks!! It's been both a stressful and exciting week. I was accepted at HBS R3 as well, so I'm feeling very fortunate.

Ok, so that's all it takes? I thought one needed impressive stats and WE to be accepted in Round 3. I guess it's easier than I thought :-D :-D :-D :-D

Waitlisted. My top choice :(

I knew it was coming since I didn't get a call, but I'm not sure what that means since the class is reportedly full to the point that previous round waitlisters were dropped en masse.

I suppose so, but I think it's the end of the road for me. I have a nice offer (full scholarship) from a teens school that I need to respond to shortly, almost certainly prior to any word from Tuck. I would have given that offer up to go to Tuck, but I can't really give it up for a chance to go to Tuck. Ah well.

Congratulations to those who made it, and best of luck to you zombieconsultant.

Final Report


Image

Didn't forecast as close as I would have liked (R2 & R3 were brutal). Anyway, I am pretty sure I will not be able to come off of the waitlist, so I am ramping up my B-School application efforts on my blog (www.grantmeadmission.com), and I hope you all will follow me on my journey. This was a nice "practice year" as I only applied to Tuck. Next year will hopefully be more fun with 4-6 schools!

Application Advice: Becoming a T’16 [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 20 May 2014, 11:00
FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Application Advice: Becoming a T’16
Image

Jacob Crandall, a future T'16, grew up in Buffalo, NY and attended Case Western Reserve University, graduating with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering.  Upon graduation he worked at Newry Corp., a small consulting firm in Cleveland focusing on helping industrial and CPG clients develop growth strategies for new and existing products.  He currently leads a strategic planning and analytics group in the Global Procurement organization at Deutsche Bank in New York City.  At Tuck, he plans to participate in the Tuck Student Consulting Services, Tuck Wine Society, and of course, Tripod Hockey amongst many other things.

 

As I reflect on the past year and my journey to becoming a T’16 (Class of 2016, in Tuckie vernacular), there are a few pieces of advice I would give to prospective students who are in the same place that I was at about this time last year.

Start Early.  I know this may seem pretty obvious, but it is a point that shouldn’t be taken lightly.  Whether it be studying for the GMAT (if you haven’t taken it already), starting to identify potential recommenders, or researching programs where you think you might apply, the earlier you start, the less stressed you will be when you are submitting your applications.  One of the activities I found most helpful was to visit each program that I was considering applying to – before I actually submitted an application – which I would not have been able to do without quite a bit of time before applying…which brings me to my next piece of advice…

Do Your Research.  Through the application process, it may seem like each school is reviewing your entire life, but remember that it is just as important that you “interview” each program as well.  This is going to be 2 years (or 1 year in some cases) of your life that you are putting into an MBA, and it will also greatly impact the path you take for many years to come.  Although I spent a good amount of time talking with alumni and students at each program I applied to, I wish I had done more.  That being said, one of the key differentiators for Tuck in my mind was that I was able to experience the Tuck network when I was just a prospective student.  I always had responses from Tuckies I emailed within 24-48 hours who were more than happy to spend an hour telling me about their time at Tuck, and show interest in my background as well.  These conversations are also helpful to help determine if you would “fit” with the people that will become your network, which brings me to my final point…

Pick The Program Where You Feel Comfortable.  When I originally started talking to people in my network who had gone to business school about selecting a program, they would always say “pick the program that is a good fit.”  I always thought this sounded a bit cliché, but as I learned more about each program, and spoke with students and alumni I realized that it’s actually a very good piece of advice.  Each program has its own unique culture that is made up of a wide variety of factors such as its location, size, teaching methods, etc.  I found that for myself (and my fiancé who is coming to Tuck as a TP’16 or Tuck Partner), we came to love Tuck very quickly, and found its close-knit, collaborative culture (which includes partners of Tuck students in many cases) to be the one where we felt the most comfortable.  I would compare the feeling to one where when meeting someone for the first time (or maybe a few times), and you just feel like you’re going to be great friends – that’s the way I felt about Tuck.

I hope some of these suggestions are helpful as you approach your path to attending a Top MBA program like Tuck.  I am very much looking forward to this summer as I will continue to get to know many of my future classmates through informal get-togethers in NYC and the pre-term trips like Outward Bound and trips to Nicaragua and Peru.  I know that Tuck was the right choice for me, and I hope that as you take your journey toward selecting an MBA program, you find the right fit for you as well.

Tuck’s Essay Questions for 2014 - 2015 [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 21 May 2014, 07:00
FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Tuck’s Essay Questions for 2014 - 2015
A bonus for our blog readers: an advanced look at this year’s essay questions! The Tuck application will go live later this summer, but you can get a head start in preparing to tell us your story. I’ll point out the obvious: we have two required essays instead of three. Otherwise, the changes are limited.

Remember, the essays are your opportunity to share with us who you are beyond the numbers and the resume, so reflect, take your time, and be genuine. You want to think carefully about your content as well as delivery; you need to communicate clearly and in your voice, not who you think we want you to be; and most importantly, answer the question you are asked.

Essays

Please respond fully but concisely to the following essay questions. There are no right or wrong answers. We encourage applicants to limit the length of their responses to 500 words for each essay. Please double-space your responses.

1. Why is an MBA a critical next step toward your short- and long-term career goals? Why is Tuck the best MBA fit for you and your goals and why are you the best fit for Tuck?

2. Tell us about your most meaningful leadership experience and what role you played. What did you learn about your own individual strengths and weaknesses through this experience?

3. (Optional) Please provide any additional insight or information that you have not addressed elsewhere that may be helpful in reviewing your application (e.g., unusual choice of evaluators, weaknesses in academic performance, unexplained job gaps or changes, etc.). Complete this question only if you feel your candidacy is not fully represented by this application.

4. (To be completed by all reapplicants) How have you strengthened your candidacy since you last applied? Please reflect on how you have grown personally and professionally.

Stay on the waitlist if Tuck is really your top choice. I have classmates who were pulled in July/August. If they haven't released you, they are still interested.

I submitted my deposit to another school too. I held out and stayed on the wait list for Tuck. I had an apartment picked out and signed a lease in another city. Then I was admitted off of the waitlist and our entire world changed. If you want it, prepare for the worst (going to the place with the scholarship), but hope for the best. It happens sometimes.

Hey guys. Do you know what percentage of students received scholarships? What is the average scholarship amount? What is the average savings people come in with before business school? Are you expected to have paid off your undergraduate student loans prior to enrolling?
