Podcast Episode 17: Q&A with Tuck Admissions Director Luke Anthony Peña, Part II

mba interview

We are thrilled to bring you Part II of our wide-ranging interview with Luke Anthony Peña, executive director of admissions and financial aid, on the admissions process at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business. In Episode 16, Peña shared about his transition to Tuck from Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB). He also talked in great detail about Tuck’s recently revamped admissions process, including several shifts designed to make it more transparent and applicant friendly.

Without further ado, we’re pleased to now present you with Part II of our interview with Peña, including valuable insights into Tuck’s newly defined admissions criteria and how they map to individual components of the application. He also provides in-depth information about the role essays play in the Tuck admissions process, as well as the school’s unique applicant-initiated interview process. Part II of our interview with Peña is available here or iTunes.
