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.

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

The 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 

The Honeymoon Might be Over

Juliet H. T'14, May 11, 2012

As 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 

Unparalleled Access

Ken F. T'12, May 10, 2012

In 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, 2012

I 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 

Freedom Tower

Ken F. T'12, May 07, 2012
