What does Tuck value?

Tuck values the idea of sharing who you are, what you have done, where you are going, and how you will get there. You do so across four sets of criteria. Being smart, accomplished, aware and encouraging forms the essential foundation on which the best candidates build. The Tuck class is diverse by design, no two candidates are equally strong across all criteria, and you may demonstrate different strengths in different ways.
