“My interaction with Karen Marks through the MBA admissions process was particularly helpful because I was not a traditional candidate. One area of my application was lacking, and Karen saw other areas of my application that still made me stand out as a great candidate. My GMAT score was not particularly strong, but Karen allowed my work experience, recommendations, and natural fit with the Tuck community weigh more heavily. As a student who has since done well at Tuck and graduated, having an admissions director who can see the value in other areas of an application outside of raw data is crucial to building a great class. For this reason, I am very confident that as an admissions consultant, Karen will help candidates bring out other parts of their applications to offset some areas that are not in the top percentiles. She will be a very valuable asset to help candidates stand out regardless of weaker areas in their applications.
