Dartmouth Tuck to offer GMAT Waiver for Round Three Applicants Affected by Layoffs

With all of the changes in the labor market – especially in the tech sector – many business schools have made adjustments to their late round application process to provide a pathway forward for individuals affected by the rounds of layoffs.
The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College is the latest MBA program to introduce what they refer to as a “special admissions initiative” to meet the needs and potential of high-performing talent recently laid off. From now through March 1, 2023, those impacted will have the ability to request a GMAT/GRE test waiver when applying to Tuck’s full-time MBA program.

The announcement was made earlier today and contained this added context from Lawrence Mur’ray, the Executive Director of Admissions and Financial Aid – “There’s an influx of exceptionally talented individuals in the labor market right now who may have been considering business school someday down the road and the road just took an unexpected sharp turn on them.  We are talking about smart, accomplished, ambitious people who have been laid off, are trying to figure out next steps, and now have an expedited timeline to apply to an MBA program if they want to begin their studies in 2023. Those are the people we’re aiming to reach with this effort.”

If you were affected by the recent labor market layoffs and are interested in a GMAT/GRE waiver when applying to Tuck, you must meet a few requirements:

Waiver requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis; the last day to request a waiver will be March 1. Round 3 applications for Tuck’s MBA program are due March 27 and will receive a decision on May 4.
