MBA News: Tuck Views Educational Advisors as Great Resource

When asked recently about Dartmouth Tuck’s position on applicants’ use of educational advisors, Dawna Clarke, the school’s director of admissions, clearly stated that Tuck views these advisors as “a wonderful resource for prospective students.” Clarke touted advisors’ skills at asking probing questions, serving as a sounding board to provide advice on program fit, challenging applicants to reflect on their background and skills, and helping identify what to maximize in the application and interview process. Clarke emphasized that applicants should only use educational advisors who offer these appropriate services and cautioned against using advisors to actually write essays for applicants (Note: mbaMission of course falls in the first category of appropriate use). Tuck’s stance on educational advisors is so favorable that the school has held conferences in previous years to help familiarize these consultants with Tuck’s MBA program.
