Target School: Tuck
Considering: Cornell Johnson, MIT Sloan, Yale
You sound like an ideal Tuck candidate, having done your undergrad at a private liberal arts college in the east (though not New England), having excelled at sports as the captain of your college’s winning rugby team and you work experience as a PM of a top healthcare tech firm. So what’s not to like? Sure, you could wish your 3.3 was a 3.5 and your 710 GMAT was 10 or 20 points higher but that is not going to make a difference. Tuck would be crazy to pass on you. My guess: They are going to welcome you with open arms and Tuck is the perfect place for you and your post-MBA goals.
