Visit / Interview

Experience the Tuck Community in Person

We encourage all applicants to come to campus. While in Hanover, you can interview, tour the campus, attend classes, have lunch with students, and talk to an admissions officer. Even if you aren't sure about applying to Tuck, visit us anyway! In the spring, we encourage you to come and get a feel for life at Tuck without participating in an evaluative interview.

At Tuck, we believe that strong interpersonal skills are essential for success as a leader and a team member. Accordingly, admissions interviews play a critical role in the evaluation process and give us a more complete understanding of you as a candidate. Although visits are not a required component of the application, we strongly recommend that all applicants (including reapplicants and international applicants) schedule an interview on campus.

Director of Admissions Dawna Clarke talks about Tuck's distinctive interview offerings for prospective students.

Applicant-Initiated Interviews

Tuck offers all applicants the opportunity to interview on campus in Hanover. Interviews are scheduled online on a first-come, first-served basis, so please request an interview as soon as you decide to apply. On-campus interviews begin in September. Please schedule your interview online at least five days prior to the date you'd like to visit. Your interview must be completed by the published deadline for the round in which you are applying. Please note that all applicant-initiated interviews are conducted on campus only.

Admissions Committee-Initiated Interviews

If you have not been able to come to Hanover for an on-campus interview by the published deadline, the admissions committee may invite you to interview. Such invitations are made only after an initial review of a candidate's application. Unfortunately we cannot invite all applicants to interview; therefore, we underscore the importance of taking advantage of applicant-initiated, on-campus interviews. Committee-initiated interviews will be conducted on campus, off campus, or by Skype.

On-campus interviews are conducted by admissions committee members and admissions associates (selected second-year students). Off-campus interviews are conducted by admissions committee members, admissions associates, or alumni interviewers. All interviews are evaluated equally, regardless of interviewer, location, or how initiated.
