Yeah I'm not 100% sure yet though... I guess my candidacy is a little bit different because I'll be applying through the consortium so I really need to be able to rank the schools properly. I won't get out to visit Haas until mid-october after the Tuck ED deadline.

Okay, after giving it a lot of thought, I have decided to not apply to Tuck. I went to a Tuck Coffee event yesterday and I was really impressed with what I heard about the school and I really enjoyed talking with the adcom member. With that said, I asked about the challenge for employment for my wife and having her derail her career and her feedback was really helpful. While I think my wife would really enjoy interacting with the Tuck significant others' group, she would pretty much have to work for Dartmouth if she wanted a job.

While I would be honored to have been a Tuckie, it's equally important that my wife has a good MBA experience as she's my support and my everything. In place of Tuck, I'll be applying to Booth instead because we love Chicago and speaking with alumni and current students has made me think much more favorably of U of C lately.

I put the 3rd question in red because there is some discrepancy out there. Two weeks ago the third question was the same as last years... and then last week the question was what you see in red... and now some sources are saying that it's still the same as last years... so stay tuned...

You might want to mark the 2nd question also in red. I just spoke with the admission department at Tuck and was told that the 2nd and 3rd questions will change, they plan to have the updated essay list by mid August.
