***For those attending BDW***

Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it in for BDW. I was hoping those that are attending wouldn't mind taking some pics of the ongoing (I'm not sure how far along they are now) construction of the new facilities. In addition, those that are going on the apartment tour, can you take some pictures of the various communities? It would be great for those who can attend to share their visual experiences with those who can't make it in...

Thanks in advance!!! Enjoy the weekend!

No problem, SkiC. I live about 2 miles from Fuqua, so I'll go take some pics of the construction this week. I won't be going on the apartment tour, but I can tell you that the complex I live in is awesome and would highly recommend it. It costs $715/mo for ~1100 sq. ft., 2 bed, 2 bath, and basic cable included. As mentioned earlier, it's 2 miles from campus and it's in the middle of Duke Forest, with lots of running and nature walk trails. Let me know if you're interested and I'll PM you more information about the complex.

Details, I am sure, are forthcoming. skaballet wrote: AAU, Do you know anything about the Women in Business lunch on Friday? I remember replying that I would attend, but not much else.

TJ, just wanted to give you an update on my deadline extension request: Kellogg did not grant me an extension. But if I were you, I would ask Fuqua for one anyway since schools vary greatly in their policies regarding deadline extensions.

Hi nervous...I just saw your post on the Kellogg thread..sorry the extension didn't work out for you but thanks for keeping me posted. I heard from another applicant that Duke is pretty firm with the deadline as well but it is worth a shot since the deposit deadline for Duke is 2 days before DAK! I guess this is the problem with applying in 2 different rounds.

AAU--Did you confirm a location for the gmatclub drinks during BDW? I'm fine with any of the places you suggested...#3 sounded good because it is still close but you mentioned it might be less crowded. I'm heading out to Durham a day early and will be without internet access as of tomorrow 3pm EST--if I PM you my contact info can you let me know when the plans are confirmed?

I'll see some of you in a few days at BDW For those of us coming out from a colder climate the mid- to high- 20's forecast in Durham is looking really nice!

Ok, I'm going to go ahead and call it!

Option 3 it is!

We'll meet on Friday evening at 9:30pm at Bull McCabes, just down Main Street from Brightleaf. 427 W Main St (http://www.bullmccabesirishpub.com/). If you are standing at the entrance to Satisfactions and facing Main St, turn to your right and go a few blocks. BM's is on the right. PM me if you want my cell.

SkiC,

I took a couple snaps as I drove by Fuqua this morning. Not much to see, but this is what the construction looks like right now.

Maybe I'll be able to get some inside shots this weekend...

Guys, I will be late to the 9:30 outing on Friday (today). Our flight does not get into Greensboro Airport until 8:30PM.
Aau, I will call to see if you are still at the bar when we arrive to Washington Inn.

Hey, all! We had fun getting together last night - sorry to those of you who missed it.

Listen, I'm around today, doing other stuff, but won't be at school. But if any of you want a friendly voice who won't give you the hard sell, get a hold of me. PM me or call me if you have my cell.

Oh, and I am hosting the baseball game tomorrow. I don't know if the weather will cooperate, but if it does, come along! If it doesn't, we can get coffee or something....
