Earlier this month, Luke Anthony Peña, executive director for admissions at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, laid out plans on the Tuck 360 blog to “sunset” two of the program’s admissions rounds.
“My colleagues and I want your Tuck application experience to be as enjoyable and stress-free as possible,” Peña writes. “So the team and I looked at our admissions rounds, and one number jumped out…100. That’s the number of days between our November round application deadline, and when we give you a decision—the longest wait of any round at any of our peer schools!”
For the 2018-19 admissions cycle, Tuck has done away with the Early Action round, as well as the lNovember round. Deadlines will now be in late September, early January, and early April (exact dates forthcoming) and will no longer be named after the month. Expect to apply in Round 1, Round 2, or Round 3.
