Marcy H. TP'14, November 30, 2012We got our first real snowfall last night-- light flurries overnight that accumulated to just an inch or two of snow. Ok, perhaps not that impressive, but it was just enough to cover everything with a light blanket of white and make everything look very pretty. The children Continue Reading
Alice L. – T’14, November 29, 2012One-third of our class is international and the Career Development Office (CDO) provides additional support for these students throughout the recruiting process: Bidding: A portion of interview slots for internship campus recruiting are to bidding using a points system. This provides an excellent opportunity to interview with companies of interest Continue Reading
Claire B. TP14, November 26, 2012"The nearest Target is an hour away, and the nearest Bed Bath and Beyond is an hour and fifteen minutes!!" How ever is one supposed to move into a new place without these two staples?? I remember hearing those distances and thinking our move to Tuck would be a Continue Reading
Alice L. – T’14, November 22, 2012I am back in LA for the Thanksgiving holiday and it’s finally given me a chance to take a step back from the whirlwind that is business school. On my way home, I stopped by Boston and met up with my old boss (also a Tuckie). He loved Continue Reading
Dennis D. - T'14, November 21, 2012I grew up in Florida. My idea of ice is a snow-cone. Despite a preview of cold weather during my college days, I have spent the last six years in Los Angeles. When it comes to ice-skating, I'm somewhere between "Novice" and "Ouch! That had to Continue Reading
Claire B. TP14, November 19, 2012Tuckies are pretty awesome, but let's be honest... so are Tuck Partners (TPs). They continue to impress me in so many different ways--too many to delve into in a single post. For now, I thought I'd post a broad overview of the numerous and diverse Continue Reading
Marcy H. TP'14, November 18, 2012The temperatures are dropping. We had our first "snow" a week or two ago-- it was too warm to stick, but it was still pretty magical to watch the little white snowflakes swirling through the air (at least to this winter-weather novice). However, while it's been too Continue Reading
Dennis D. - T'14, November 17, 2012Tuck can be something different to every student; it can provide the launchpad to switch careers, the skills to progress up the corporate ladder, or the time to build your network and launch your own business. It is what you make it. As a parent, though, the academic and recruiting Continue Reading
Dennis D. - T'14, November 16, 2012There are two primary ways which you can source your summer internship and full-time job: (i) on-campus, with large firms coming to campus for interviews (think investment banks, global companies, consulting), and (ii) off-campus, where you determine the job you want and network your way into it. The main advantage Continue Reading
Claire B. TP14, November 14, 2012I think it's accurate to say that most of us had never played ice hockey before Tuck, yet it's a huge part of the culture here. How can that be? Well, you don't have to know how to play hockey--or even how to skate--to get Continue Reading
Marcy H. TP'14, November 13, 2012The weather has held up well enough so far this year (it was sunny and in the 60's yesterday!) so we've been enjoying lots of outdoor play while it's been so nice. However, as the days grow colder and daylight becomes more scarce we'll need to find Continue Reading
Claire B. TP14, November 11, 2012Many partners who decide to relocate to the Hanover area while their student is enrolled at Tuck are concerned with finding work in the Upper Valley. <-- That is an example of a generalization. Read on, but please bear this in mind: Everyone comes to Tuck Continue Reading
