The Tuck MBA deadlines for the 2020-2021 admissions season are presented in the table below.
The Tuck School of Business is operating its admissions process over four rounds of deadlines this year. For the 2020-2021 admissions season, Tuck will be issuing invitations for interviews. This replaces their longstanding admissions practice of applicant-initiated interviews. Interview invitations will be released on a rolling basis, and can be sent within a few days of an upcoming decision date.
If you plan to apply to Tuck during any of the below rounds, note that all materials must be submitted by 5:00 PM Eastern Time.
|Round||Application Deadline||Interview Invitations||Admissions Decision|
|Round 1||September 28, 2020||Mid-Aug. to Early Dec.||December 10, 2020|
|Round 2||January 4, 2021||Early December to Mid-March||March 18, 2021|
|Round 3||March 29, 2021||Mid-March to Late April||May 6, 2021|
|Round 4||Rolling April 1 to June 1, 2021||Late April to Late June||Rolling May 10 to July 1, 2021|
With respect to deposit deadlines, applicants accepted in Round one must deposit by February 5, 2021. Round 2 admits must deposit by April 26, 2021. Round 3 admits must deposit by May 28, 2021. Finally, for candidates admitted during the rolling Round 4, deposits are due two weeks after one is notified of their acceptance.
Applicants must complete the Tuck application form, except for those who apply via the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management. The application must include a copy of transcripts from each undergraduate or graduate institution attended, (official transcripts must be sent directly to Tuck within 30 days of enrollment), GMAT or GRE test scores, resume, responses to essay questions, two letters of recommendation from direct supervisors, and a $250 non-refundable fee.
For non-native English speakers, submit scores for either the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), the PTE (Pearson Test of English Academic), or the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) to demonstrate English language proficiency.
During the 2020-2021 application year, all interviews will be committee-initiated. If invited to interview, applicants will receive a link to select a day and time for a virtual interview.
Invitations to interview are released on a rolling basis. While the school aims to send most invitations early in the application cycle, it is possible to receive an invitation to interview in the days prior to the decision notification date. The timing of your interview invitation does not reflect the committee’s level of interest in your application.
