2011 Application Essay Questions (Now updated with 2011 essays)
Three essay questions must be completed before submitting your application. Prepare your essays carefully. The Admissions Committee considers your responses to the following questions important in the selection process. Please respond fully and concisely using 1.5 line spacing. Your response to each question should be no more than 2 pages in length, with a font size no less than 10-point.

Candidates who applied to The Duke MBA between September 2009 and April 2010 are considered re-applicants. All re-applicants are required to complete the Re-applicant Essay in addition to the Applicant Essays.

All applicants have the opportunity to submit an optional essay to explain any extenuating circumstances of which the Admissions Committee should be aware.

Applicant Essays : Answer all 3 essay questions.

Today, companies must navigate through complex and interdependent issues. They must deal with health and security matters, environmental impact questions, and diversity and cultural concerns. Leaders need adaptability, imagination, emotional intelligence, and business acumen. Thus, Duke is in the midst of an ambitious global venture that will embed and connect us around the world, and we are seeking future leaders of consequence, who value diversity and collaborative leadership, and who aspire to impact the companies and communities of which they are a part in a lasting and positive way.

In an effort to identify, engage, and foster the development of future leaders of consequence, the Admissions Committee would like to get to know our applicants in a more holistic manner. We would like to know who you are, what has shaped you into the person you are today, and how you hope to impact both Duke and the communities of which you will be a part in the future. The essays are your opportunity to convey that to us. Please be open, genuine, and passionate. Share with us what makes you a dynamic, multi-dimensional person.

1. Describe your vision for your career and your inspiration for pursuing this career path.
2. How will your background, values, and non-work activities enhance the experience of other Duke MBA students and add value to Fuqua's diverse culture?
3. Why Duke? (If you are interested in a specific concentration, joint degree, clubs or activities, please discuss how you would contribute to these in this essay.)

Optional Essay (not required)
If you feel there are extenuating circumstances of which the Admissions Committee should be aware, please explain them here (e.g., unexplained gaps in work, choice of recommenders, inconsistent or questionable academic performance, significant weakness in your application).

Re-applicant Essay

All re-applicants are required to complete the Re-applicant Essay. Please limit your response to two pages. Write an essay describing how you are now a stronger candidate for admission compared to the application you submitted the previous year.

Thank you sausagenpeppers, I have updated the roll call page.

I will also update the application deadlines once they become available. I am guessing they will have similar dates for this year's application.

I'm in for round 1 (I'm technically still on the summer waitlist but betting it's not going to pan out).

What is the history on scholarships offered to ED candidates? I considered applying ED but then I thought if they have you captive, don't they have less incentive to offer money? Would love to hear everyone's thoughts.

Last season, no EA applicants reported any scholarship. Those who received scholarship during the regular rounds all had 760+ GMAT, which leads me to think that Duke use GMAT to determine scholarship awards after you are accepted

Since your listed GMAT is below 760 and you were WLed, it would be better to apply EA to increase your chance of acceptance (if you are set on Fuqua).

My instincts say "No" to scholarships in EA. The available data confirms my suspicions that by applying EA and committing to attend if accepted, they have you somewhat as a captive audience. How would you even negotiate a scholarship based on receiving one at another school? You already said by appling EA that if accepted elsewhere you would decline admission in favor of Fuqua. Therefore saying I can't come unless there is money makes you look like you're waivering on your obligation. That being said, they may still offer money in EA but I would guess it's limited. Money seems to be used to lure candidates who may be considering other programs, here that is not the case. Please note this is my reasoning, not any insider info.
