Dawna Clarke, Director of Admissions at Tuck, answers questions about Tuck’s Early Action deadline. She provides her perspective on the advantages and downsides of applying Early Action.
- Early Action is intended for those students who have identified Tuck as their #1 choice of business schools
- The School is slightly more generous with applicants who apply EA than in the subsequent rounds
- The maximum amount of scholarship dollars and housing options in the Upper Valley are available to applicants who apply early in the process
We want students who really want to be here … it is easier to stand out as one of the first 700 applicants who apply to Tuck each year versus being considered among the last 700 applicants who apply.
- It is generally better to apply later in the process (such as the November or January deadlines) and strengthen your application than to rush strictly to apply early
- If you’re not satisfied with your first GMAT score and feel that your candidacy would be enhanced by studying and retaking the GMAT, it would be better to do so and present an overall more competitive application
