by money9111 » Tue Jun 01, 2010 4:44 pm
If you plan to apply to the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth to be part of the class of 2013, please post a response with the round you intend to apply. A moderator will update this thread regularly. Please be sure to update us with any information such as an interview invite, acceptance, waitlist, or ding.

Essay Questions:

1. Why is an MBA a critical next step toward your short- and long-term career goals? Why is Tuck the best MBA program for you? (If you are applying for a joint or dual degree, please explain how the additional degree will contribute to those goals.)

2. Discuss your most meaningful leadership experience. What did you learn about your own individual strengths and weaknesses through this experience?

3. What is the greatest challenge or hurdle you have overcome, either personally or professionally, and how did you manage to do so?

4. Tuck seeks candidates of various backgrounds who can bring new perspectives to our community. How will your unique personal history, values, and/or life experiences contribute to the culture at Tuck?

5. (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.

Yeah, Tuck seems amazing (particularly for leadership) but I have it at #5 mostly because of the location. While the mountains of NH are perfect for me (I'm an outdoor freak), it would be harder for my wife to find work during those two years compared to San Francisco, Boston, and Chicago.

yeah I completely understand... it is gorgeous but like you said... finding work would be uber difficult. I don't even know how one would find work up there.
