Blog Guest, May 30, 2012There is no denying the fact that Tuck alumni are the best. When I was going through the application process, alumni helped me learn more about the program and the opportunities Tuck has to offer. When I wasn’t talking to a Tuckie, my go-to source was Continue Reading
Justin R T'13, May 27, 2012Wow. I can’t believe my first year is over. Fall A and B, Winter and Spring Terms. All over. What an experience it’s been. It was pretty difficult zeroing in on a particular topic to write about for this post because so much has happened in Continue Reading
Ken F. T'12, May 23, 2012One of my most popular posts during my two years here was Fall term in quotes, an unashamedly brief insight into some one-liners from my professors that ranged from insightful to cryptic, absurd to amusing, and thought-provoking to indecipherable in isolation. Here are quotes from the outstanding faculty I've Continue Reading
Ken F. T'12, May 21, 2012My first class at Tuck was the Yellowtail case in AGM. My study group had spent literally hours preparing it - reading, analyzing, calculating, debating - and we were relatively efficient. Some groups went as far as to check flight schedules between cities mentioned in the case, to figure out Continue Reading
Ken F. T'12, May 18, 2012I still vividly remember the scent of the Tuck admissions materials. The rich paper was distinctive - crisp, luxurious, rustic - as though it had been made in an artisan paper mill in the admissions suite on campus. I half expected to turn up and find the whole school was Continue Reading

For some applicants, the decision to pursue an MBA is made in the span of the first couple of years of professional work after undergrad. For others, the plan for an MBA started Continue Reading
Luis G - T'13, May 16, 2012The dividend discount model is one of the valuation techniques I learned in Financial Statement Interpretation and Analysis, a class that prepares students to effectively analyze and interpret financial statements. Basically, the dividend discount model says that the value of a company is worth the discounted sum of all Continue Reading
Juliet H. T'14, May 11, 2012As an admit from Early Action, I have had the great luxury of basking in my acceptance to Tuck for a few months now. But the realities are starting to sink in. December 16, 2011 turned out to be a good day. Incidentally it was exactly one year after a moderately Continue Reading
Ken F. T'12, May 10, 2012In today's FSIA class (an elective in which students perform fundamental financial and strategic analysis on companies to decide whether individual stocks are worth investing in), the industry under review was media and entertainment. We had two visitors in class to hear and give feedback on student presentations about Continue Reading
Blog Guest, May 08, 2012I came to Tuck with two goals: transition into consulting and focus on healthcare. I still have a lot more that I want to do, but I wanted to take this opportunity to brag about unique aspects of healthcare at Tuck and the resources available for Tuckies to create their Continue Reading
Blog Guest, May 06, 2012Jeff Zhou was born and raised in China, and is now living in Austin, Texas. Prior to Tuck, he worked in Corporate Development for a large media company.

Ken F. T'12, May 04, 2012It's real. It's actually happening. We T'12s are going to have to graduate and re-enter the real world. Soon. If you had asked me before spring break when I'd like to start work, I would have said, "tomorrow". Not that I wasn't having a great Continue Reading
Blog Guest, May 03, 2012Mike Nowak currently resides in Saratoga Springs, NY where he has worked in private wealth management for the past four years. ASW had been circled on my calendar for a long time now. For me, ASW was the culmination of a long, drawn out, strenuous but successful and rewarding process. Continue Reading
