The unfortunate result of a small student body is that the Admissions team cannot admit anywhere near all of the fabulous candidates we see.
Every round we have to make incredibly difficult decisions. The fact that you remain enthusiastic about Tuck and want to contribute to our community enough to give it another try shows us you sincerely want to be here—and we like that!
At Tuck, being smart is not solely about test scores and your GPA.
We are also looking for confident humility, curiosity, and a willingness to stretch yourself and learn from others.

Finally, you may need to work on articulating your distinct candidacy.
We will have your prior application when we review your new one, and will refer back to it.

One of Tuck’s defining features is our small student body.
The personal scale of the program is critical to creating the immersive and collaborative trust-based community for which Tuck is known.
