Congratulations to the one and only billyjeans for slaying the waitlist dragon and getting in for this Fall! Way to go buddy! Woohoo!

:wave :wave


billyjeans - yay!! Maybe we can be study partners. You will have to write a post on how to write a fantasmic letter to get off the wait list.

Congrats to everyone that got in - and have faith for those on the waitlist.

3/26. There is more information in the Duke Admitted thread on the B-school life thread (including a link).

hey guys thanks so much! you guys are like my second family :)
So tired today. But very relieved I finally got in somewhere. I am still waiting to hear back from Ross, but I am 95% sure I am committed to Duke!

I followed mba gameplan and richard montauk's book on how to pursuit waitlist. I visited school and send in an w/l letter (at the recommended time, maybe that's the magic). Gl to all that's still on the waitlist, and I hope to meet everybody in the near future!

Am a R1 WL. I continue to be on the waitlist after the R2 notification. ( guess its better than a ding), your life rolls on with the slightest of hope.
Besides, I see there is a high number of WL candidates for Duke in specific. Any reasons. or else they are planning to slaughter all of us in one go a little later.

Admitted off R1 Waitlist.

Best of luck to other waitlisters. For those of you still weighing WL strategies, mine was to provide a consistent stream of new information from varying sources:

Late Jan - my Mgr at work sent an e-mail to the AdComm notifying them of a recent promotion & performance review.

Late Feb - my Supervisor sent an e-mail to AdComm notifying them of a new global project that I've been assigned to.

I had planned to send another e-mail mid-March reiterating my interest in Fuqua and updating them on some recent extracurricular accomplishments.

I've heard that another round of waitlisters may be accepted after the April response deadline.

Best of luck to everyone.

If you are international, they'll FED-EX the package. If you live within the US, I think it's just regular first class mail (maybe USPS Priority).

Has anyone received an email for the admitted student site or any info regarding Blue Devil Weekend. I'm assuming R2 admits are invited right?

I haven't received an e-mail for the Admitted Student site or BDW. BDW is less than 3 weeks away so I hope they send out invitations soon.
