Dartmouth Economics B.S. vs Tuck M.B.A

I was wondering the difference is the type of person, academic focus, and job prospects between Tuck and Dartmouth undergrad Economics degree. I really like Dartmouth's Tuck business school (specially type of people), so when applying to colleges (I am a senior) I applied to Dartmouth. I know that I really like cooperative environments and rural setting of Dartmouth, but I realize that Dartmouth undergrad is different from Tuck. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Tuck School of Business is completely separate from Undergraduate Students and pretty much only caters to its full-time MBA program. So its not somewhere you can get into without a bachelors degree and work experience.

Yes, I understand that you need a bachelors degrees and work experience to get into a B-school (especially a top one like Tuck). I am asking about how Tuck differs from the undergraduate Dartmouth experience (specifically if the people, information learned, job outlook differ and how they differ from Dartmouth undergrad Economics to Tuck M.B.A). Sorry for the confusion.

Ah ok. Well I haven't gone to B-school yet but from what I understand the experience is fairly different. At undergrad most of the people have no idea what they want to do, at least in the first year or so, while at B-schools you have to recruit pretty much after the first several months. I also think that you will find a lot more different type of people at college, whereas business school is more focused towards business professionals. As for Jobs I think most of the companies who hire MBAs at Tuck will also hire undergrads from Dartmouth College.
