Tuck COVID-19 Information and Campus Updates

Visit and Interview with Tuck

Exploring Tuck

As we work to manage and mitigate risks associated with COVID-19, our top priority is the health and safety of our community—including prospective students. At this time, we are not scheduling on campus interviews or visits. COVID-19 updates for Tuck are available at tuck.dartmouth.edu/covid19. COVID-19 updates for Dartmouth are available here.

There is no perfect substitute for experiencing the vibrancy of Tuck in person, but you have alternative options to better get to know our community. Tour our campus virtually, and see the physical beauty of Tuck and the Upper Valley on our YouTube channel. You can also engage with our Admissions and Financial Aid team, our students, and our alumni at our live online events.

Interviewing with Tuck

Admissions interviews are an opportunity for you to further demonstrate that you are smart, accomplished, aware, and encouraging. They provide additional information on who you are, what you have done, where you are going, and how you will get there. All applicants admitted to Tuck will interview prior to an admissions offer.

We release invitations to interview on a rolling basis. While we aim to send most invitations early in the application cycle, it is possible to receive an invitation to interview in the days prior to the decision notification date. The timing of your interview invitation does not reflect the committee’s level of interest in your application.

HOW ARE INTERVIEWS CONDUCTED?

Most interviews are conducted by a select group of trained second-year students, Tuck Admissions Associates (TAAs), and last 30-45 minutes. Using only your resume, your interviewer will ask you behavioral questions aimed to draw out evidence that you are smart, accomplished, aware, and encouraging. At the end of the interview, you will have an opportunity to ask questions of your interviewer to learn more about their experience and Tuck.
