"WIBC is the reason I’m at Tuck. Before that weekend two years ago, I wasn’t sure yet whether I wanted to move away from a city and from my partner to be at Tuck. WIBC was my chance to experience Tuck’s tight-knit community first-hand and to spend quality time with students, faculty, alumnae, and other prospective students (many of whom are now classmates!) in a more intimate setting – and to get a real feel for whether Tuck was a good fit. I came away from the weekend realizing that Tuck was not only a good fit, but it was the BEST fit for me in terms of the people and culture. I really got to know Tuck through that experience and made some great friends in the meantime whom I stayed in touch with through the application process."

"I learned that everyone really does want to help you and that they understand that being a woman in business is different. The speakers knew it and were willing to teach us about how to navigate business and how to stop selling yourself short. "

"WIBC was one of my first introductions to Tuck, and the experience really helped me visualize what being a Tuckie would look like. It was the first time I could see myself in the shoes of the students in the classes above me and think: wow, I can do this."

"I was very impressed by the immense respect and care with which Tuckies treat one another, as well as their dedication to giving back to the community. This weekend really confirmed that Tuck is exactly the type of MBA program I would be honored to join."

"The conference for me was a great way to experience all the things that people talked about when they talked about Tuck – the beautiful campus, the engaging professors, interesting classes and involved and supportive Tuckies. It is an incredible community. I stopped a Tuckie to ask for directions to the parking lot. We ended up standing outside in super cold weather, me in a business dress and her in athletic wear chatting for about 20 minutes. She asked about my interest in Tuck, what I thought of the conference so far, and about my past. I was able to reconnect with her when I came to Tuck as she was now a second year and she continued to be extremely supportive and helpful particularly during recruiting."
