Marcy H. TP'14, December 07, 2012When applying to Tuck and during our weekend here for ASW, Zach and I were often told that the first two semesters (Fall A, lasting approximately the 4 weeks of September, followed by Fall B which lasts from October through mid-December) are incredibly intense and busy and overwhelming.

Sumeeta K. - T'14, November 09, 2012Tuck is such an amazing place for so many reasons. One of the things that stands out to me when I think about what sets it apart, is the 24/7 learning environment that being in Hanover fosters. In Tuck terms, 24/7 learning means that the potential for my knowledge base to Continue Reading
Oksana C. T'14, October 18, 2012Tuck was placed #2 in the Economist'sannual ranking of full time MBA programs. I’m personally incredibly proud, but at the same time I feel that it is well deserved. The ranking is based on four factors which The Economist identifies as the primary reasons students pursue Continue Reading
Andrew M. - T'14, October 07, 2012For us first years, tomorrow, in addition to being Columbus Day, is also the start of our Fall B term. Reflecting back on my eight weeks here at Tuck, I was inspired to verse. For those putting the finishing touches on your Tuck admissions application, I hope this Continue Reading
Avanti M. T'14, October 03, 2012Now that I can breathe after the mad Fall A rush, I'm sitting at a Starbucks in New York contemplating the unique little community that Tuck has, and I cannot be more grateful for the honor of being able to call it mine. The things that some would call Continue Reading
Oksana C. T'14, October 02, 2012Fall A – first four week term of our first year at Tuck is over. It was… When I was thinking how to best describe it, first an image of a race car came to my mind. It starts immediately, develops speed in no time and an enormous weight Continue Reading
Stephanie B. - Admissions, September 25, 2012Stephanie O'Brien, T'14 and Forte Fellow, writes about her non-traditional journey to an MBA. After asking herself "how do you create functional, high-performing structures and systems, not just in a work environment but in your own life?" she's finding answers through three important life skills she's already Continue Reading
Juliet H. T'14, September 16, 2012Business school: a study in efficiently allocating finite resources We are half way through Fall A and I can say that the biggest challenge I have had thus far is contracting a severe case of Fear Of Missing Out syndrome (FOMO). It stems from the plethora of opportunities available 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
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
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 19, 2012I have only 16 classes left at Tuck, and as though to remind me that my halcyon days of sunrise golf outings and sunset cycles along the Connecticut River are numbered, Admitted Students Weekend starts tomorrow! Admitted students of the incoming Class of 2014 have a lot to look forward to over Continue Reading
Luis G - T'13, April 07, 2012Over the last couple of weeks a few T’14s have asked me about the rigor of the first-year curriculum. My response: challenging and demanding but fun. Yes, I said it, fun. There will be some days that are hard but I recommend enjoying the Continue Reading
