Fast Five

Andrew M. - T'14, September 19, 2012

I have been at Tuck for five weeks, and it is hard to believe how quickly time has flown by, how much fun I have had, and all that I have learned.  What’s not hard to believe, given all that I knew about Tuck before I arrived Continue Reading 


Life in (and around) Hanover: The Montshire Museum of Science

Marcy H. TP'14, September 18, 2012

I'd heard many great things about the Montshire Museum of Science, so it was one of the first things we wanted to check out once we got settled in the area.  I wasn't quite sure what to expect-- I thought it probably would be a neat indoor Continue Reading 


FOMO

Juliet H. T'14, September 16, 2012

Business 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

T'13, Andrew Olaleye, recaps his summer internship in Lagos, Nigeria on the Center for Global Business and Government's blog.  Working at Promasidor, a fast moving consumer packaged goods manufacturer with products in over 30 countries across Africa, allowed Andrew to apply what he's been learning at Tuck.  Continue Reading 


Dancing in the Rain

Juliet H. T'14, September 11, 2012

In the interest of full disclosure, Hanover is limited in shall we say ‘traditional’ forms of entertainment. The Upper Valley lacks the major sports teams, world-class museums, and famous restaurants that characterize the cities from which many of us hail. And for this, I could not be more Continue Reading 


Jumping in (where you hadn’t expected)

Marcy H. TP'14, June 05, 2012

One of my favorite parts of ASW (Admitted Students Weekend) back in April was the mock class we participated in. As a partner rather than a student, I had not expected this to be the case.      We’d had a busy day, taking a tour of Continue Reading

Guest Blog:  Post-Tuck Perspectives - Suds T. T’10

Blog Guest, May 30, 2012

There 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 


First year over! (Best year of my life)

Justin R T'13, May 27, 2012

Wow. 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 


2012 in quotes

Ken F. T'12, May 23, 2012

One 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 


And… it’s over

Ken F. T'12, May 22, 2012

My 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 


Sights, scents and sounds of spring

Ken F. T'12, May 18, 2012

I 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
