Ken F. T'12, May 22, 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
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.

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
Ken F. T'12, April 30, 2012All stereotypes exist for a reason. All generalizations are wrong. Whatever your view, top MBA schools have stereotypes.

Justin R T'13, April 25, 2012Admitted Students Weekend (ASW) 2012 has come and gone, and it was an amazing weekend. I've been so incredibly busy the past few months planning the social events for ASW with Tory O'Kane (T13) and several other first year student chairs. At times, the workload was downright absurd. Planning 3 Continue Reading
Pete. T'13, April 23, 2012One great thing about Tuck is the living, learning community. As a single Tuckie (or one without a TP up in Hanover), you have the opportunity to live on campus in the dorms your first year. I never thought that after I left the dorms in undergrad, I would find Continue Reading

Ken F. T'12, April 01, 2012My wife said to me this weekend that our class gift should be to name the 18th hole at Hanover Country Club after the Tuck Class of 2012. I kind of like the juxtaposed frivolity and endurance of her idea. And it got me thinking: the Tuck MBA is quite a Continue Reading
Laura T'13, March 31, 2012Over spring break, I went with a group of 22 other Tuckies (and a number of great Tuck Partners) to Madrid.
