Tuck MBA Essays and Deadlines 2016
Tuck MBA Essays 2016:
The Tuck MBA admissions team considers a variety of factors when gauging a candidate’s application. Criteria include academic credentials, leadership and team skills, communications skills, diversity, and global mindset.
Please respond fully but concisely to the following essay questions. There are no right or wrong answers. Tuck adcom encourages 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.
International applicants may apply in any round; however, for applicants who cannot secure a U.S. visa by August 1, 2016, admission will be deferred to the following year.
