Hey guys -
Anyone going to be around for interviews on the 17th? I'll be up there on the night of the 16th and would love to catch up with anyone who is around. Looking forward to checking out the area and the school before the Nov. round!

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: 15 Unique Upper Valley Activities
Image

By Erica Johnston T'15

Erica is a second-year student from Chicago. She studied marketing and international business at Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to Tuck, she worked in operations management in the industrial sector. A career-switcher, Erica has plans to work in brand management within the food industry.

When I moved to Hanover last year, I was concerned about how I’d adjust to life in Hanover since I loved big city life in Chicago. I’ve embraced life in the Upper Valley and enjoy taking part in the unique activities within a small radius of campus. Here are just a few of my favorites.

1. Hiking

Within minutes of campus you have access to tons of hiking trails of varying degrees of difficulty. Last weekend I did a beautiful hike along a bubbling brook teeming with fall foliage (see photo above). Last spring I did a night hike to local pools where amphibians gather after coming out of hibernation. Another memorable hike was to the top of a local ski mountain last spring where we roasted s’mores once we reached the top. You can’t go wrong with the hiking options!

2. Cabin Nights

Dartmouth owns numerous cabins in the area that students can rent for days at a time. Last weekend, I spent a night at Dartmouth’s Mt. Moosilauke compound of cabins with about 80 other classmates.

3. Biking

If you’re into cycling, the Upper Valley is the place to be. There are many scenic trails that pass through local farms. Nothing like coming across a cow on your ride!

 

Image

4. Farm-to-table dining

If you’re a foodie like me, you’ll love the Upper Valley’s farm-to-table food scene. Many restaurants in the area source from local farms and some local farms even host dinners in their barns a few nights a week. This past weekend I had lunch at Worthy Burger—it’s tough to find a burger that rivals the Worthy!

 

Image

5. Ice Fishing

If you told me a year ago that one of the events I would look forward to most this year is the Amos Trout ice fishing outing, I never would have believed you! A few times a year, many of us head out onto the frozen river to go fishing!

 

Image

6. Snowmobiling

Thirty minutes from campus, you can take snowmobiling tours through nearby trails. Last winter, a large group of us went snowmobiling after we got a foot of fresh powder. What fun!

7. Dartmouth Skiway

With Dartmouth’s own ski mountain nearby, you can be from class to the slopes in 30 minutes.

8. Apple Picking

With local farms within minutes from campus, apple picking, berry picking, and pumpkin picking can make for a fun afternoon!

Image

9. Kayaking the Connecticut River

A five minute walk from Tuck will lead you to the Connecticut River where Dartmouth rents out kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats. I love taking a break between classes to get out on the water, clear my head, enjoy the beautiful view, and get in a workout.

10. Dartmouth Organic Farm

Dartmouth has its very own organic farm where you can help out with the farming, take part in educational programs, and, if you’re lucky, take home some fresh produce! The farm sells its produce on campus during harvest seasons.

 

Image

11. Niche Farming

Last spring, I took a workshop on how to raise and harvest mushrooms in the Upper Valley—an ideal climate for many varieties of mushrooms that are often considered delicacies. The strength of the agricultural community provides many opportunities to learn about niche industries in the Upper Valley.

Image

12. Art Classes

There’s a great artisanal scene in the Upper Valley.  Local studios host painting classes and offer open sessions to come in and paint. Last spring, a few classmates and I painted our own Tuck dishware to show our Tuck pride during Small Group Dinners.

Image

13. Ice Skating on Lake Morey

Before moving to Hanover, I’d only skated on man-made ice rinks.  Last winter I went to Lake Morey to skate a 4.5 mile loop on a picturesque sunny day!

 

Image

14. Brewery Scene

There are 20+ breweries in the area. If you’re a beer snob, grab one of the local brewery passports and taste away!

15. Scenic Drives

Just driving around the Upper Valley is a treat, especially when fall leaves are at their peak. There are plenty of driving routes in the area that maximize leaf peeping.

The email i received was as below:

Thank you for applying to the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. The Admissions Office has received your application materials.

Once we have received your recommendations, they will be matched to your other application materials, and your completed application will be submitted to the admissions committee for review. Incomplete applications cannot be reviewed and will be pushed to the next deadline. Incomplete applications for the April (the last round) deadline will be reviewed in their current status. Please monitor your Apply Yourself application account for the status of materials received as well as your application status (complete/incomplete). We will contact you directly if your application file is missing any supporting materials.

When i submitted on 6th Oct, one of my recommendations wasn't in so i guess that was the reason I didn't receive the confirmation for completion. On 7th, the recommendation was completed (shows in the form too) but i didn't receive an email that my application was complete and will be reviewed for EA. Any thoughts?

Was it signed off by a person specific and sent from that person's email address? or was it sent from their common email address?
Regardless of the answer to the above, you need to know that what I got was a personal message sent by the lady after she manually checked the integrity of entire package. Once satisfied, she classified it as complete and sent it to the adcom for evaluation. But when I submitted it might have been an easy hour and now their office might very well look an ancient archive room. So, they might take a little bit of time to see if the docs are complete (in your case).
Don't worry if all is submitted. It's Friday night. Grab some beer or wine (if you so please) and enjoy... :)

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: As an international student…why Tuck?
Image

Image
Wei Xing is a T'16 from Beijing, China. He earned a Bachelor of Engineering from the Beijing Institute of Technology and a Master of Engineering Management from Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering. Prior to Tuck, Wei worked in finance in New York City, at an education management firm in Beijing, and most recently, with EF Education First China, also in Beijing. After Tuck, he plans to pursue a career in management consulting.     

What were you looking for in an MBA program?

To me, an MBA is not just a degree. Besides the goal of enhancing my career development and general management skills, I wanted to leverage two years at an MBA program to do some self-reflection. I am trying to find out what truly matters to me, both personally and professionally. Tuck’s close-knit community and “everyone knows everybody else” culture really allow me to do that. I have been learning how to explore different ideas from my classmates with diverse backgrounds and how to integrate their perspectives with my own.

What concerns did you have as an international applicant?

Before Tuck, my concern was how much value I would get from some of Tuck’s quantitative courses that I already took in college. Trying to get full exposure of my study group, I didn’t attempt to exempt Statistics for Managers, a core course in our first term, Fall A. Very different from the course I took in engineering school, Statistics for Managers was focused on thinking as a general manager and how to make business decisions with available data. I ended up enjoying each mini case in this course as well as Professor Neslin’s unique sense of humor!        

Why Tuck?

I came to Tuck mainly because of its people. When I pursued my Master of Engineering Management at Dartmouth in 2006, many Chinese Tuckies voluntarily did mock interviews with me when I was applying for jobs. When I asked Ying Wang, T ’06, who interned at McKinsey to give me a 45 minute mock case interview, that 45 minutes turned into over two hours. Not letting me treat him to dinner, Ying wanted me to return the favor by supporting fellow Tuck and Dartmouth students. I didn’t forget my promise to Ying when I came back to Hanover and I am eager to pass the torch by mentoring classmates and future Tuck students. 

As an international student, how has Tuck supported you?

During my first couple of months at Tuck, I found that the Career Development Office (CDO) was extremely helpful. Before Fall A starts, each student is assigned to a career coach (a CDO member) who maintains active communication and provides thorough career guidance. I recently returned from a consulting trek, led by Associate Director of the CDO, Stephen Pidgeon, where I had the opportunity to visit major consulting firms in Boston, learn their business, and interact with Tuck alumni during receptions. The CDO also organized career sessions designed for international students that occur every two weeks and cover various topics from cultural differences and networking to resume workshops and mock interviews.

Any surprises?

My Tuck Outward Bound experience (aka OB), which was a five day sailing trip in the Gulf of Maine. Ten Tuck students shared one boat and went through a daily rotation program to be captain, navigator, sailor, chef, and so on. Every evening we had a reflection session to give the captain feedback and share our personal stories. Without a laptop or a cell phone and after sleeping in a confined space for five days, I formed a strong bond with the people on my boat even before school started. They still remain my closest friends at Tuck! 

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to an international applicant?

When international applicants have the privilege of choosing among schools they have been admitted to, they should talk to as many people as possible from each MBA program. Though all leading business schools offer top-notch business training and incredible career development resources, the people and culture can be very different. If visiting the schools is not an option, international students should attend information sessions, coffee chats with alumni, and get a sense what type of people they want to learn from, trust, and build friendship with not only throughout two years, but their lifetime.

Yes, same here. I got a general email upon clicking submit, and a personal email from a single person's name and email address confirming my application is complete.

I submitted my application on Wednesday before the deadline, and received my personal confirmation that they have all of my materials yesterday.

(fair warning: the email was entitled "Tuck Application Status" and nearly gave me a heart attack at work)

You'll receive another such email 1 week prior to release of EA result. Everyone will. Fair warning to all, don't miss another heartbeat next time you see a email with subject "Tuck Application Status". :)

Hah. Thanks for the heads up!

On a slightly different note... does anyone know from last year when those of us not living in the US (who have not been able to take advantage of the student initiated interview) can expect to start receiving interview invites?

Hah. Thanks for the heads up!

On a slightly different note... does anyone know from last year when those of us not living in the US (who have not been able to take advantage of the student initiated interview) can expect to start receiving interview invites?

I went through last year's thread (yes, the whole of it :-D ), so should be bale to answer that one. Interviews begin sometime 3 weeks after the deadline and continue all the way until the results are declared. Though (last year) people who gave interview close the result-date didn't specify when they got their invite, I would safely assume that invites are sent 2nd week onwards to one week prior to result date...
I hope that helps.. :)

so i just realized that second years don't have classes this week for a recruiting break. does anyone know if second year students will still be there to give interviews or is it more likely to be an admissions committee member instead?
