Is Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business on your shortlist of target MBA programs? Then you’ll be excited to learn that the new Tuck MBA essays for the 2019-2020 admissions season are available!
Tuck admissions has announced a few changes to this year’s application. Gone is the short-answer question section of the application. In these new Tuck MBA essays, applicants will now have more space to share how a Tuck MBA advances their aspirations.
In the 2019-20 application, there will be three 300-word essays.
- Tuck students can articulate how the distinctive Tuck MBA will advance their aspirations. Why are you pursuing an MBA and why Tuck? (300 words)
- Tuck students recognize how their individuality adds to the fabric of Tuck. Tell us who you are. (300 words)
- Tuck students invest generously in one another’s success even when it is not convenient or easy. Share an example of how you helped someone else succeed. (300 words)
The Tuck MBA essays will continue to map directly to two of its admissions criteria: aware and nice. The essays invite reflection on these criteria as applicants demonstrate the other criteria, smart and accomplished, elsewhere in their applications.
“We have been pleased with the quality and caliber of aspiring wise leaders for whom all four of the criteria have resonated,” says Luke Anthony Peña, executive director of admissions and financial aid.
Finally, the last difference between this year’s application and those of prior years is that Tuck admissions has elected to fully adopt GMAC’s Common Letter of Recommendation Questions.
Tuck’s 2019-20 MBA application will open in early July.
