Tips for applying to Tuck's MBA Program:

  • Very important to show that you understand unique character of school/location and that really want to be part- one good way is to travel to campus for open interview (Tuck appreciates applicants who visit campus and interviewing before applying, and it may increase admission chances). Another is to apply Early Action.

  • Since it's not as popular as the other Top 5, they need to see that you didn't apply just because of their high rankings - that you don't treat it as a Top 5 safety school.

  • Value teamwork, especially because of their Study Group system.

  • Seems that they are looking to take more students who have a 'global mindset'.

  • Undergoing curricular changes dubbed Tuck 2012, which includes new seminars of a few students with a faculty member, exploring a current issue in depth- may be good to mention in application.

  • School looking to increase diversity, percentage of women.

  • Advantageous to apply early.

  • Like tangible anecdotes, examples and vignettes in essays.

  • Show that you will be an involved student and dedicated alum, preferably by showing community involvement and loyalty to other institutions, such as undergrad program.

  • Will not consider applicants who already have an MBA (unusual for b-schools).
