    About me: I currently live in Hanover, NH with my wife and 3-year old son. Prior to Tuck, I worked mostly in business development of startups and entrepreneurial innovations. I would like to pursue a career in management consulting, and during the summer I interned with Booz Allen Hamilton in Denver. This forum's purpose is to provide prospective students with answers to any questions you might have on Tuck.

    Hi Nachshon,

    Hope u r enjoying your time!

    Thanks for your devotion.

    a few questions,

    1. Can u elaborate about you stats which led you to Tuck?(and other Israelis).

    2. As I have read, you are studying with your wife and kid, this is a big problem for me since if and when I apply, I will not know what my wife and probably, a future child will do – job wise and education wise.

    3. Can u tell more about other Israelis, if any, that are studying at Tuck?

    4. What other U.S. programs enable family life for the student's family?

    5. What do you see as Tuck's strong points? (apart from skiing )

    again, thanks alot,

    Assaf.

    Hi Nahshon

    I have been looking in to Tuck as an option for my MBA, and many of the points you made are relevant to my situation.

    I too have a family, my oldest (of two) also currently 3 yrs. old. Since we are religious, I was wondering if besides all the wonderful things you mentioned for a family, what is the situation of the religious community in Hanover or its surroundings, if one even exists….

    Thank You,

    Aaron

    I am glad to hear you are interested in Tuck. I can tell you what I know about religious facilities/possibilities at and around Dartmouth, but the better point of contact will be Alan Operman, who is a religious Israeli student at Tuck. Please contact me offline and I will make the connection. Best, Nahshon

    Hi,

    Attached some Q&A regarding Tuck which I asked by email .

    Thanks to David (who is currently study there) on his in depth answers.


    1. How would you define Tuck: a program with quantitative orientation or qualitative orientation?

    I don’t think Tuck has an “official” orientation in terms of quantitative vs. qualitative. What I can tell you is that the academic part is extremely rigorous (I know many people think MBA studies are a cruise but at least here they’re far from it), and very practical. By practical I mean that the school’s philosophy is to put an emphasis on tools you’ll need for your career, and especially for the first couple of years. In this perspective Tuck doesn’t just give you “the CEO perspective”, but understands that most of us don’t exactly become CEO’s in the first few years after our graduation so for example you’ll be required to gain a very deep level of comfort with spreadsheets and advanced modeling tools.
    In addition, the second year is entirely up to your choice, so you can build your own mix of quantitative and qualitative courses, there’s enough of both.

    2. How much percents of the lectures are being conduct in the "case study" methodology?

    I would say that in general we use cases in about 70% of our classes, but it really depends on the type of class. For example: Strategy is 100% cases, whereas Accounting is about 30% cases. I personally looked for that because I’m a big fan of cases, but think they are not a useful tool in some of the classes. Cases, like everything, are good for certain thing and only damage in others.

    3. What are the main differences between Tuck and other small programs (like: Duke, Cornell, Michigan, etc.)?

    First of all, one of my lessons in retrospect is to go for small programs with a very high priority. I think the experience is so much better, much more fun and intimate. In addition, I think small programs (and definitely Tuck) have much stronger alumni networks – because the key in networks is not so much the number of people in them, if they don’t help so much. The key is how much attention and help you get from your alumni, and at least in my experience at Tuck it has been unbelievable – I’m usually amazed by some of the offers of assistance I get from Tuck alums and practically all my job offers came through Tuck alums.

    As for a comparison – unfortunately, I can’t say I had the chance to know the other programs you mentioned, so I can’t really say. I can only guess that there are differences that arise due to the different cultures inside the US – Tuck is very much a New England – Ivy League culture, whereas schools in California, the Midwest and the South will probably have different cultures. It’s a matter of personal preference at the end of the day.

    One thing I can tell you – I think Tuck is stronger than most of the schools in terms of employment opportunities. If you look at the objective data, you’ll see that Tuck is consistently ranked top-3 or top-5 in terms of placement percentage (especially in consulting and banking), compensation and salaries, etc. In my opinion, that is the best indication of what the “brand” of the school really is in the eyes of the recruiters.

    4. Do you know, by any chance, what is the policy of the school towards spouses? Do they get help in finding a job inside the college? Does the school help you getting J-1/H-1 visa rather then the regular F-1 which usually you can get (but your spouse can't work with)?

    Because the community in Tuck is so intimate, the school goes to a lot of efforts to make sure your spouse is happy, and many spouses work in Tuck and in Dartmouth. In that case, the university will arrange for them to have a working permit.

    I can tell you that in my case, several people in the school were actively looking for jobs for my partner, and eventually she found her current job in clinical research through one of the Tuck connections. The school will also arrange for your spouse to attend classes in Tuck and in Dartmouth if she’s interested, and they have full access to all the events, clubs, benefits, fun activities etc. that we have.

    I probably would apply for class that starts in 2007, however I still do not have a GMAT score. So, I still have not decided to what schools I would try to get.
    Anyway I would be happy to chat with you via e-mail, phone or skype.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the late reply – I was on a short vacation for a change.

    Anyway, as you can probably imagine it's hard to describe a culture. Generally speaking, the old universities in New England have a certain culture to them which is more "old school" – that is derived from the facilities and the working environment, the tradition of the university, etc.

    That is a general notion and of course there are differences between schools in this region. For example, Harvard is a New England Ivy League school but the culture is different in many senses.

    Bottom line – I only understood it when I visited the schools so it is very hard to explain. I hope I gave you a general feeling of what I meant.

    Good luck with your application!

    שאלה למי שהגיש לסיבוב EA ל-TUCK

    כשאתם נכנסים עכשיו לאפליקיישן שלכם ורואים למטה את הסטטוס של האפליקיישן, האם מופיע לכם

    Application Status: Incomplete

    ושהציונים הרשמיים (GMAT, TOEFL…) לא התקבלו? האם זה בגלל שהם בכלל לא בודקים את זה עד שאתה מתקבל?

    תודה מראש 🙂

    לא הגשתי ל – TUCK אבל מניסיון, זה אומר שהם עדיין לא קיבלו את כל המסמכיםציונים שלך. ברגע שהכל אצלם, בד"כ הסטטוס שלך הופך להיות משהו בסגנון: Under review

    טוב נחכה בסבלנות ונראה, הקטע המוזר זה שאצלם בכלל לא צריך לשלוח לא גליונות ציונים של הלימודים ולא של המבחנים, הכל זה דיווח עצמי, ועם זאת האפליקיישן בסטטוס של "לא מושלם". לשמחתי (צרת רבים נחמת טיפשים, אני יודעת) מצאתי עוד כמה באותו המצב בפורום של BW ומחר מישהו מתקשר ל-ADCOM לברר מה הסיפור…

    כמה בלאגן צריך להיות באפליקיישן?!?!

    זאת לא הדאגה, הדאגה היא שהסטטוס הוא INCOMPLETE, ולפי המייל שמקבלים לאחר ההגשה (שאגב חצי מהאנשים מסתבר אפילו לא קיבלו אותו) אם זה הסטטוס של האפליקיישן הוא ידחף לסיבוב הבא וכו'… כנראה שתשובות יהיו אחרי שיבררו מחר מול ה-ADCOM… מוזר אבל…

    *****

    Hi All

    I submitted my application on Oct 3 and called the admissions office to verify what Application Incomplete meant. I was told that the applications would get evaluated and that the incomplete status will change only when you are offered admission and you give the adcom the remaining materials like the official score report, official transcripts etc.

    Sam

    *****

    Well the mystery is solved!

    I emailed Tuck admissions yesterday and guess what ??? They responded back the same the day, the good folks at Tuck were addressing applicants concerns even on weekends(another reason why I love Tuck).

    Dear XYZ,
    Thank you for your interest in the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.
    Once applications have been submitted, they all have to be processed and each account manually updated. As you can imagine, given the volume of material we have just received, we are still in the process of updating applicant accounts.
    Thank you for your patience.
    Kind regards,
    Tuck Admissions

    Well now I can enjoy my weekend!

    Hi Gili,

    I don't have the accurate numbers, but I think there are about 20 Israelis in Hanover, most of them students and professors in Dartmouth. At Tuck there are currently 5 Israeli students.

    As for the Jewish community, it's actually decent – probably a few hundreds around the Hanover area. There is a "reform" community and a Chabad one, which allows most people to find their place.

    I hope this helps, let me know if you have anymore questions.

    I have been to quite a few schools' receptions and never seen anyone showing the admission officer their resume or giving business card.

    What you can do, is take their card to send a thank you note and/or follow up questions.

     

    By the way, last year several people asked to be interviewed and scheduled one for the next day. In that case you will  be asked to bring your resume.

    However, in case your resume is not perfectly finished for the application purposes, you still strugle developing your essays stories,  and you never practiced for inteviews, you may want to seriously consider taking the risk of being interviewed without proper preparation.

    Hope it helps,

    הייתי בכנס וזה היה כמו מסיבת קוקטייל אח"כ בכלל ראיתי שזה נחשב ל RECEPTION
    בכל מקרה היה מאוד מוצלח
    הגב' מה-ADMISSION
    מאוד נחמדה וגם בעלת חוש הומור מצויין
    היו שם שני בוגרים עם מידע מאוד מעניין מבחינת ההיבט הישראלי
    וגם עם סיפורים אישיים מעניינים
    אני דרך אגב יצאתי מאוד מעודד מהערב
    מאחר ולאחד הבוגרים יש פרופיל מאוד דומה לשלי
    אין ספק שזה בי"ס מיוחד אבל לא בהכרח מתאים לכל אחד
    מה שאני רואה כיתרון בביה"ס קהילה מגובשת תוכנית קטנה תוכנית חזקה של ניהול כללי ודגש על חשיבה יצירתית וחוש הומור יתכן שלא מתאים לכל אחד וצריך לקחת בחשבון מגורים באיגלו
    בכל מקרה נשאר רק ה GMAT
    כדי לעבור מלדבר על זה ללעשות את זה

    Hi,

    My name is Ariel and I am a student at Tuck Business School at Dartmouth, Class of 2010. This year there are 6 Israelis, the largest number ever attended Tuck. We come from different backgrounds, different family status and different experiences. I encourage you to post your questions about the school, the Tuck spirit, the upper valley area and anything else comes into mind. Some of us are very active in this forum (students and alumni, find us anywhere in this thread) so please feel free to post to any of us.

    Tuck has a great reputation in the US as a top tier business school, and is a constant factor in every TOP10 ranking of the major business magazines. The school atmosphere is highly collaborative and the different backgrounds of the class members create a unique and special community. The curriculum is rigorous and is very demanding, but I can tell you that after 3 weeks at Tuck I learned more than ever about business, analyzing methods etc.. About the bottom line, recruitment opportunities, I suggest you read the data in Tuck website. It is highly impressive. One of the reasons for that is the amazing alumni network that is much more than what it sounds. Actually, the Tuck alumni is one of the major factors in Tuck recruitment opportunities. The school is located in Hanover NH, which is a small quiet town. the fact that the town is small emphasize us, the students, and makes the town look like one big university.

    I could go on forever and I'm here for only a month… so as I mentioned, feel free to ask any question you have. We will be glad to help.

    האם אפשר לבקש להתראיין בארץ על ידי בוגר או שראיונות לבקשת המועמד הם רק בקמפוס וראיונות עם בוגרים הם לפי החלטת ועדת הקבלה ?

    מאתר ארינגו

    ביה"ס ממליץ שכל מועמד יגיש את הבקשה להתראיין מוקדם ככל האפשר, ויספיק להתראיין לפני הגשת האפליקיישן. הראיונות נערכים בקמפוס בלבד. במידה והמועמד לא הספיק להתראיין לפני הגשת האפליקיישן, ביה"ס עשוי לזמנו לראיון. במקרה כזה הראיון יכול להתבצע גם מחוץ לקמפוס.

    Ran,

    You can definitely ask to conduct an interview in Israel. If one of the alumni in Israel is available you will surely have that option. Saying that, I recommend you to come to campus before applying. Beside the option to interview it would give you a chance to take a glimpse on the school culture and the area. I can tell you that I had a hard decision which school to attend, and what tipeed the scales for me was visiting B schools. It can turn your decision either way but it is highly important to know where you're applying to. Also. it would give you superb material for the 'Why Tuck' essay.

    Good luck,

    Future applicants,

    I will be in Israel next week and would like to host a small informal information session about the Tuck Business school at Dartmouth. I wish to take the chance to know some of you, tell you about my experiences as a student and answer your questions about Tuck, Dartmouth, the application procedure, and anything else you wish to discuss. It would be probably either Sunday the 21st or Monday the 22nd. From my experience, informal sessions are the best way to know a school (besides the visit itself…), the culture and some real students experience.

    Please shooot me an e-mail if you are able to attend, what day is convenient to you and in what area (Center/North/South…).
