Tuck Releases Updated Essay Questions
The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College has updated the essay questions for the 2010-2011 MBA application season. Although there is no restriction on the length of your response, most applicants use, on average, 500 words for each essay.
Why is an MBA a critical next step toward your short- and long-term career goals? Why is Tuck the best MBA program for you? (If you are applying for a joint or dual degree, please explain how the additional degree will contribute to those goals.)
Discuss your most meaningful leadership experience. What did you learn about your own individual strengths and weaknesses through this experience?
What is the greatest challenge or hurdle you have overcome, either personally or professionally, and how did you manage to do so?
Tuck seeks candidates of various backgrounds who can bring new perspectives to our community. How will your unique personal history, values, and/or life experiences contribute to the culture at Tuck?

Complete this question only if you feel your candidacy is not fully represented by this application.
Essay 6 (To be completed by all reapplicants)
