I was waitlisted R1. So in R2 some people were dinged and some were admitted off the waitlist. When they checked their status, their letter had changed and I believe that they received an e-mail asking them to check their status. If you remained on the waitlist you heard nothing. So if you hear nothing tomorrow, it means you are still on the waitlist. It was kind of hard hearing nothing last time. It would be nice if they did ask you if you'd like to remain on the waitlist.

If i recall correctly, the decisions for both regular applicants and waitlisted applicants were released simultaneously in prior rounds. However, decisions as a whole were released much later in the day (4pm EST vs 12pm for round 3)


Anyone know for sure that this was the case? Also, when is the round 3 deposit deadline?

Did they say anything else about the waitlist? And yes, at least for R2, there were people dinged AND admitted off the waitlist.

Just spoke to an admissions representative. I was told if there was any change in your status, you would have heard earlier today. From this point on, notifications will be on a rolling basis.

Hello, I am an international admit in R3. Now seems can't make a decision on which program to attend between NYU Stern and Duke. My post MBA goals are MNC headquarters finance role in the east coast of the US, or consulting. My background is 4.5yrs audit, 4 years MNC finance in Energy industry. Preferably will return to Energy but open to other sectors.

Of course NYU has great location but my concern is whether I will like the people in Duke more. I haven't visited Duke just a feeling that students at Duke are more friendly. Could anyone in this list give me some insignts on these two programs? Thanks!

The schools that do that really chafe my @$$. This is nothing but arrogance. I understand doing it in EA, because the people that apply then are obviously very gung-ho about this particular school. But to do it now, when people (like myself) have a decision to make (i.e. Darden or possibly NOTHING) - it just doesn't sit well with me.


I'm not sure what else they can do. They are basically notifying people as they get withdrawals and they don't want to overfill their class. I'm sure they probably have an ordered list (or a few ordered lists) and they'll basically admit more people as spots open.
