Sweet, how did you get the $49 deal - is it through 'name your own price' on priceline? Originally I got it for $69 there as well but saw that it has since gone up to $89.

The Washington Duke Inn is certainly nice; I stayed there during a visit earlier. Now trying to save every dime to get ready for paying back a 6-figure loan. :shock:

Billyjeans and others, do you have any specific tips for those of us mired in the stagnant waitlist? I know that my undergrad performance is the big red flag but won't be able to take a class as I'm traveling. I plan to get another letter of rec and to write why Fuqua is my #1 but can anyone suggest timing or other specifics?

Any help would be great. I hope you all enjoy the upcoming weekend together and hope to meet you all in the fall.

hey guys, I booked the $49 at millenium on priceline (name ur own price) for my feb trip. I am guessing there are more demand for the bdw bookings. So the price might be higher. Sorry for the confusion. :)

Anyone have thoughts or insight into whether the wait list may be inflated at Duke with the reduced application fee this year? I'm absolutely rationalizing but there may be something to it...possibly. Do we have any view as to how many typically get in off the wait list at Duke?

Obviously with trying to be unique I wouldn't use your idea, but I'm curious. What did you do? Did you hear on Monday?

Thanks!

For those on the waitlist from Round 1 and the new arrivals from Round 2, know that it isn't over yet. I know that it's tough to play the waiting game, but remember that you still have plenty of time to be admitted.


For those in the waitlist, I want to share some stats from 2008 I found yerterday about Fuqua:
≈30% of the applicants are offered admission (2,900 applications, which means about 870 accepted)
≈50% of the admitted applicants enroll in class (hence the ≈430 class size).

I would say that Fuqua offers direct admission to about 600 people, and waitlists around 250-270. My guess is that most waitlisted will be offered admission before decision for R3 deadline is reached.

No idea. The last date to get an interview invite is March 24th, so just 9 more days and we will find out! Btw, one positive way of looking at it is that in R3 a lot of people who do not want to attend Duke will withdraw.

Does anybody have any historical information on WL converts? I know last year was rough for WL'ed candidates because Duke's yield jumped.
