TUCK Interview Calls and Status




TUCK’S 2015 - 2016 ESSAY QUESTIONS



While the application won't go live until later this summer, here's a sneak peak of the essay questions.

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. What are your short- and long-term goals? Why do you need an MBA to achieve those goals? Why are you interested in Tuck specifically?

2. Tell us about your most meaningful leadership experience and what role you played. How will that experience contribute to the learning environment at Tuck?

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.

BLAST FROM THE PAST - Excerpts from some of the prior threads



Tuck Success Stories



Current Student Insights



Current Student :- Domotron - Class of 2016


Who would be an ideal applicant to your program based on admissions, culture, and the program in general?

Domotron:- There is no such thing as the ideal applicant for Tuck I think. That being said, successful applicants must demonstrate a good understanding of the Tuck culture and how they would fit into the supportive community. Otherwise, the traits Tuck looks for are very similar to other schools: intellectual horsepower, strong work experience, interesting extracurriculars whether it be sports or volunteering, and strong ethics.



GPA, GMAT, Application Essays, Interview, Work Experience, and Extra Curricular. If you asked to arrange these parameters in the order of their importance at HBS – what would it be?

Domotron:- I honestly believe that Tuck utilizes a holistic approach to the application process. That being said, the quality of the class is very high so you cannot have a significant unaddressed weakness in any one aspect of your application.


What advantage, if any, is there in applying in a specific round over another?

Domotron:- EA round is definitely an advantage for those that know they are serious about Tuck. Historically, admit rates is just as strong in the November round as EA round. January round tends to be the most popular and after that it is tough as there are just fewer unfilled spots left.



Are the on-campus and off-campus interviews treated equally or there is any preference to one over other?

Domotron:- The Tuck admissions are very clear that they prefer candidates to interview on campus if at all possible. For candidates that are strong in interviews, you ensure that you get an opportunity to demonstrate this without having to wait for an invite. It could be the difference between an admit and a ding.



Do you recommend a school visit? Is it a must?

Domotron:- Due to its location, it is important to visit to make sure Tuck is the right place for you. You will also be able to get a sense what the Tuck community is all about. Fit is incredibly important at Tuck and you are doing yourself a disservice by not visiting and interviewing if possible.



How important is the school visit for an applicant?? Does that really play any role in strengthening application?

Domotron:- It is very important for any school. I felt after my school visits that I could better articulate why a school was right for me (or in some instances realized it was a poor fit).



Can you comment on the Employment process of the school? What support do students get from Career Services dept, peers, and alumni?

Domotron:- As a first year, I am only getting a glimpse into the recruiting process. However the list of companies that visit campus is extremely impressive. The toughest thing is organizing your schedule to make sure you can attend all the sessions you want to. Overall the Career Development Office has done a great job getting in touch early in the first year.



Which companies (and from which sectors) generally recruit in the school? How strong school’s alumni network is?

Domotron:- At a first glance, I would say Tuck gets all the major management consultancies, IBs, GM firms on campus. The Tuck alumni network, though smaller than most schools, is extremely strong. There are many stories of people getting jobs through referrals or conversations from alumni.



Which student clubs or groups are in the school? What social and philanthropic opportunities and opportunities to get involved in leadership roles one can get in these groups?

Domotron:- Tuck has a class of 280, therefore there are leadership opportunities available for those that want them. In fact, it is difficult to sit back and not get involved. Tripod hockey is a big party of the Tuck social life but there are a good variety of fun or professional clubs to get involved in.



Is there anything related to Financial Aid worth a mention?

Domotron:- The financial aid system is fairly straightforward at Tuck. For scholarships, you have to submit a separate essay to be considered. Otherwise, there are a variety of loan providers available including a non US-cosigner loan option for international students.



Can you think of a few good and bad reasons for applicants to reach out to current students? Eps. Before submitting an application?

Domotron:- There are no bad reasons for reaching out. Tuck students love to help and encourage people to reach out. The more people you speak to, the better you will understand the Tuck community. Finally, you never know who may put in a good word for you to a member of the admissions committee!




The following is the perspective from successful Tuck Applicant/Admit Domotron (known for his blog: http://domotron.wordpress.com/) who is proud to be a T '16.

domotron wrote:

My keys to why Tuck?



  • Location: This can be a make or break criteria for applicants. Some people love the idea of 2 years in Hanover (me) and others can’t think of anything worse. The benefit of Tuck’s location is that you will have a really residential MBA experience that leads to an extremely cohesive and tight-knit community. The remoteness is also slightly overblown. If you really want to escape, it’s only 2-3 hours from Boston.
  • Class size: Tuck has one of the smallest class sizes around. You will not and cannot be just a face in the crowd. You will get to know all your classmates and this was a huge plus for me. I would much rather build a smaller set of deep friendships rather than larger set of acquaintances. The smaller class size also means you get more exposure to the faculty. Finally, it pushes everyone to contribute to the community whether it is organising social events to a career trek.
  • Recruiting: Not much to add other than Tuck’s recruiting numbers are consistently phenomenal. After my research, I was sure that Tuck would get me to where I wanted to go providing I put in the work.
  • Community: Throughout my application process, I got an exposure first hand to the incredible people associated with Tuck whether it be current students, alumni, or admissions staff. They were all gracious with their time and willing to answer any queries that I had. This is not limited to the current Tuckies. Tuck is renowned for a responsive alumni network that will go above and beyond to help current Tuckies. This was the type of community I wanted to be part of.


Should I self-initiative an on campus interview?



Yes, yes and yes. A lot of applicants over think this point. Listen to the advice from the adcoms. They HIGHLY encourage people to visit and those that do have a higher rate of success. I would recommend you interview before you apply though because experiencing Tuck firsthand will really help your essays especially when demonstrating fit. What better way than talking about your experience sitting Prof X’s class or speaking with current student Y. Furthermore, why turn down an opportunity of providing the admissions team with one more data point. Maybe you are not the best writer in the world but you blow people away during interviews. Well this is your chance to demonstrate that.

One last thing to add, just because the interview is self-initiated doesn’t mean you can just turn up. You should prepare for it just like any other interview.

My tips to a successful application



Below are just a few thoughts. They are all common sense suggestions really:

  • Really get to know the school – make use of Tuck Connections, speak to as many students or alumni as possible, and visit campus. This will give you ammunition for your essays and demonstrate that you have done your due diligence. “Fit” is an important criterion for Tuck and this goes a long way to showing it.
  • Definitely interview on campus – this applies to all applicants. For North American applicants, it shows up if you didn’t make it onto campus. For internationals, this is not essential but put it this way when I interviewed, there was a guy who flew in from China just to visit and interview.
  • Dig deep into your story – really spend time to think about your story and life experiences. You have limited real estate (losing one essay from last year) to put your story across to the admissions team. You want to make the most out of every aspect of the application whether it is essay, resume, online form, or interview.
  • Don’t try to please the adcom – they really don’t want to hear a story you concocted for them. I guarantee the real you is far more interesting and much more likely to succeed than a sanitised version to fit their criteria.

Admission Process
prodizy wrote:
Hey I don't think there is a specific timeline. However, I suggest you to do the applicant initiated interview. Below is the overview of how Tuck selects its students. I am posting verbatim of associate director of admissions at Tuck, Pat Harrison. I just loved the beauty of the process. We all will get our fair chance, I think :)

====
Those of you applying today might be curious as to what happens to your application next...

Once we get it, we print out the application and put it in a file with your letters of recommendation (which hopefully have already arrived), and the write-up from your interview (assuming you have already completed one). The complete file then goes to one of our eight admissions committee members for the first read. S/he reads everything that has been submitted and writes a brief evaluation of the pros and cons of the file and makes a recommendation whether to admit or deny the applicant. If the applicant has not already had an interview, the reader also makes a recommendation whether we should invite him/her to interview. Please note that this happens for EVERYONE. We don’t have minimum cut-offs for GMAT, GPA, work experience, etc. All files go through this process. Next, the complete file then goes on to a second adcom reader for another full read. S/he goes through the same exercise and makes a recommendation whether to admit or deny.

Next stop is our Director of Admissions, Dawna Clarke. She reviews each reader’s comments and may read some or all of the file if she needs further clarification. Some of the applicants she reviews are clear admits, and some are unfortunately clear denies. She makes a final decision on those groups accordingly. However, a larger number of applicants fall somewhere in the middle, and that group goes to “committee.”

Committee occurs at the end of the application round, and basically we lock ourselves in a conference room for a few days, with a generous supply of junk food, and the group discusses each applicant. Some of those discussions are lengthy and some become quite passionate. Eventually we arrive at a final decision as a group. Final decisions are then communicated to all applicants via their on-line admissions account on the published notification date. Hopefully, the news is good!

The important thing to take away is that A LOT of time and attention is given to every single application. One of the things I am most proud of is how thoughtful our process is. We really try to get to know each of the applicants as a person, not just their stats. All of the hard work you put into your application is appreciated, and we really do read every essay you write."

Admission Tips
str1der wrote:
Two points, second one is more generic

- Show the love: Tuck thrives on this. If you are in the US, visit. If you aren't, try to visit. It won't go unnoticed. Don't be afraid to email people in their admissions office directly regarding queries - they are extremely helpful. Stress on your 'love' for Tuck in the interview versus talking about generic points like rankings, employment data etc. Don't be afraid to let your essays take a much more personal flavour than essays you may be writing for other schools.

- Competition among Indian applicants is just tremendous. Be prepared to turn in your absolute best. Tuck is a very prestigious school in the US (it doesn't have as big a name in India/ Europe as US) which makes it very competitive to get into. There are folks joining me in Hanover who have turned down HBS, Sloan, Kellogg, Booth etc. to come to Tuck. Hence, even if you are not an Indian, make sure your Tuck application is top notch. And when I say application, I don't mean just the essays. The interview is where they really look at how well you mirror the paper versus the real you. If you wrote stuff for the sake of pleasing them, you are dinged immediately
vanishingnerd wrote:
Some quick (and very obvious) updates/suggestions from my side:

1. Try to send "thank you" notes to people who helped you through out your MBA application process. This includes your peer groups, people who wrote your recommendations, AdComs you interacted with, your interviewer at Tuck (and other schools), and most importantly say thanks to your friends and family for tolerating you throughout the process.

2. Relax. Remember you have done your part. Its very common to have that feeling of reaching out to the AdCom regarding the status of your application, chances of success, recent (scheduled) promotion or updated employment report. Hold on to that feeling unless you think its critical and it will drastically improve your chances at Tuck.

3. Hedge your bets and start working on Round 2 applications. You may choose not to submit them later.

4. Don't loose focus on your current job (and your career progress). Even if you get in to Tuck, you wont matriculate before Aug 2014. Sweet promotion to Project Manager or Senior Associate or an Economist (in my case) will help during first year recruitment at Tuck (exactly 11 months from now).

Should I Interview?
PanchoPippin wrote:
As Dawna Clarke mentions in her P&Q interview, visiting/interviewing on campus is definitely a plus because it shows a sincere interest in the school and allows the applicant's essays to come to life because the applicant is not just speaking in generalities about why he or she likes Tuck, but instead has a concrete experience from which to draw.

That said, plenty of people get into Tuck without ever setting foot on campus. In fact, if Tuck likes your application they can invite you to interview on campus or via Skype, as you alluded other schools do.
vanishingnerd wrote:
Glad you asked. I was an International applicant last year and due to prior commitments I couldn't visit Tuck for interviews. If your application is competitive enough, the AdCom will find one or the other ways to get in touch with you. F2F interviews (in your home country) and Skype calls are common for international candidates.

But that being said, if you live and work in the US or nearby countries, its expected that you make use of open interview policy at Tuck.
kschmidt1801 wrote:
As a T15, I second the opinion that you should interview on campus if you live in the US / North America. I didn't and I'm positive it affected the strength of my application. I was lucky that the adcom asked me to interview after I applied and I flew out for the interview then. Tuck is a very unique place in a very unique part of the US. People have an incredibly visceral reaction to meeting the community. You love it or you don't. For me, I know I fell in love in a way that would have made for a completely different application. As it happens, I wasn't admitted right away. I was waitlisted. I'm almost positive that if I had flown out to interview before I submitted my application that I would have been a much stronger applicant and been admitted right away.

Moral of the story: Interview on campus, have a better application, and maybe even avoid the waitlist.

Interview Experience

prodizy wrote:
Mine was on-campus applicant-initiated interview. The interview was very enjoyable. The second year student who took my interview was very humble. She was genuinely interested in getting to know me.

The interview is mostly about
  • what you have I done till now (walk me through your resume),
  • why I need an MBA (career goals),
  • how Tuck will help me out (my personalized plan to achieve those goals),
  • most importantly, WHY Tuck (am I genuinely interested in Tuck or not)

The last part was pretty important I felt. I think she was not hooked by my justification of why Tuck. So my advice is to really work on that. I was also asked to share about a leadership experience. I would strongly suggest visiting Tuck for an interview. It will be one hell of an experience. If you live in a big city, you will immediately get hooked.

Hope that helps. Send me a PM if you want to ask anything specific.

Ward2012 wrote:
Had my interview today. Preparing definitely helped me, but I only prepared the night before. Of course, I went through this process already last year, so I knew what to expect.

In the end, I was making myself worry over nothing. The interview was very pleasant. I think what also helped is that my interviewer was of the opposite sex. I've always felt that people, in general, interview better with someone of the opposite sex.

My questions were very standard and have all been reported before on the ClearAdmit blog (except for maybe the penultimate question below):

-Walk me through your resume
-Why do you need an MBA?
-What are your long term goals?
-Tell me about your leadership style and a team experience. What three things would the members of that team say about you?
-Tell me about a time you failed.
-Why Tuck?
-What will you contribute to Tuck?
-Explain to me the current situation at your company (I work for a unique financial services company that is in the news a lot, and people are always curious. PM me if you want to know)
-If you could meet any person in the world or in history, who would it be?
-Is there anything you wish I had asked you?

Thanks.

Not yet. I think they came out on 5/21 last year, so about a week to go!

Deadlines are not out yet either.

Hi All,
Nice to see early enthusiasm. Anyone planning to visit the campus?
I'm planning to visit before or after R1 submission deadline. Any recommendation on when is the best time to go before the deadline and what to do?

Cheers

Hey PlastMan! It is a great idea to visit the campus and Tuck emphasizes on applicants visiting the campus A LOT!!! Tuck has an open interview policy, in which applicants can schedule an interview with Tuck and in Tuck, visit the campus and interview - either before or after submitting the application. I look forward to go for the open interview!

That's interesting, I definitely look forward to hearing your experience on the open interview.
One of my concerns is on the location. I'm used to big cities and I have experienced small towns. I can say that adaptation has not been easy for me.

Any idea how people that heave dealt with this? I want to get beyond the cheesy, cherry-talking of "strong and collaborative community." Do people travel away or they are just so busy with the program it doesn't become a factor?

thanks

Hi,
I was in direct contact with the Senior Associate Director of Admissions. Dates should be posted soon. They will be very close to the dates Tuck had this year. The application will go live in early July. Essays might be posted a little before then, but no an exact date.

I hope it helps

Update 1: To those who can't travel to Tuck, I want to inform that Tuck has link below to match them with Alumni. They are so responsive. I will do a skype meeting with great alumni of class 2014.

http://www.tuck.dartmouth.edu/admission ... gn-up-form

I had a lovely experience with ambassadors who was very very supportive over 10 emails with a lot of questions answered sufficiently. Ask them anything you want. do not be shy.

Update 2: I Just finished my Skype conversation with Tuck graduate connected to him through link above in update 1. I asked him detailed questions about class teams interaction and dealing with each other, how study groups help each other, what the school does to help overcome weakness (actually they are amazing in that point), grading system, consulting career management and other issues. He was very open. He offered another conversation if needed. I will continue to send him emails as he is consultant and busy. It was a great experience.

Very excited to apply!... Probably will do it in Consortium R2 as my first choice. I'm planning on visiting campus on November :). The sense of community, social vision and my interest in biotech and renewable energy really draw me to the school! I hope we can all support each other through this process!

Good luck to all!
