B School Life


This review is for Tuck

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

The entire student body is incredibly nice. It's hard to find a mean person at Tuck. However, the school does not attract as many diverse students as some of the other schools located in big cities. This is a bit of a disappointment. I will give Tuck credit though, as they are making significant efforts to fix this. The number of women enrolled at Tuck is up from 32% to 42%, which is a huge leap in just one year. I would like to see more diversity in terms of ethnic backgrounds and socioeconomic standing.

Herd mentality is a bit strong at Tuck. Almost everyone does hiking, hockey, skiing, and other winter sports because their friends are doing it.

The alumni of Tuck are amazing. They have been incredibly helpful to me during my job search. It's true that they are willing to drop everything to spend time talking to you. Of all the alumni that I have reached out to, everyone has gotten back to me promptly. The size of the alumni base is not that big, but they are MIGHTY.

Location - this is probably the hardest thing for me to adjust to and it will vary from person to person. I thought living in a small rural town would be fun, but I miss city life so much. If you're an outdoorsy person, you should have no problem. If you are used to public transportation, convenience, a thousand different activities and restaurants to sample, then Hanover may be a difficult transition.
