I was accepted! But I'll decline the offer (will go to Kellogg), hopefully it will go to some people of the waitlist!

Congrats to all the admits! Very awesome to hear how well the 'Club has done for R2.

For those of you on the WL -
In years past, Duke has let a significant number of folks off the WL during the next round's decisions. In other words, you probably won't hear anything until the March R2 notification date. Being on the WL means they think you've got potential. So continue to show your interest and send any updates that are appropriate. Assess your profile and see if you can identify your weaknesses. In the time you have, is there anything you can do to address these? Obviously, don't start volunteering this week - that's silly and transparent. On the other hand, perhaps re-taking the GMAT might benefit you or taking an additional class.

Good luck.

Count me in as well about status complete.

If Fuqua gets interview invites by Feb 2nd, I'll be exceedingly impressed by them. Especially considering how long other schools take. I'm not sure how much the efficiency of the Admissions office represents the overall administration, but its hard to separate the two in my mind.

Damm got an email from Duke regarding my application, the online status says incomplete because they dint get my transcript, even though i have a scanned copy uploaded. I have emailed again... just wondering y what was wrong with the earlier version......

Did anyone else have the same issue with their apps ,......................?????


Was it the Official Transcript or the Unofficial Transcript? Official Transcripts have to be delivered to you by mail and can't be emailed. Unofficial ones can generally be emailed to you as a PDF. It's the law in the United States.

I almost had the same issue but quickly got my official transcript sent to me and scanned and forwarded on. Generally most schools have a 'priority' processing option for Official Transcripts and can have them to you in 1-2 business days. Enough time to get it scanned and emailed over. Just an FYI.

Got my admissions packet today. It has all the basic info you'd expect, and the flash drive with a couple videos and a PDF with a ton of additional information.

I got the letter as well. I don't have it in front of me but I didn't get that sense. Maybe I'll have to read it again though. As for meeting everyone, we have to go down early anyway for the intro to health class.

Something I noticed in the letter was that the say it's the largest health care progam at a top-tier business school. They always put that top-tier qualifier in there. Is there like a 1,000 student health care program at some random school?


I've always thought that they're trying to say they're better than Wharton.

I'm leaning back towards duke over Ross because I remembered that I heart Kevin Schulman (as in I think he's a great director of HSM). I didn't get the impression that they were saying BDW was required either - I don't think they really could require it for foreign students anyhow.

Edited - Duke's admit materials are boring.

@hsm78 - good to hear on the scholarship! Can you share your profile as well?


Happy to. 720 GMAT (45Q/45V & 6.0 AWA), 3.4 from top 10 undergrad, 31 years old, white, male, 7 years as a military officer and 2 in non-profit since leaving the military. Pretty heavy community involvement. I don't know, am I leaving any relevant things out? If so, let me know.

So after re-reading the e-mail that we all received Jan 25, is it that Duke will continue to keep sending out interview invites until Feb 3, or will they be sending them out all at one time?

Yet to receive an interview invite, so needless to say I'm getting anxious...



I think they are sending them all out at the same time (on the 3rd)


what happened in R1???

Page 19 of this thread suggests that emails started to go out around 2:30 the day before the deadline (i.e. tomorrow).

Do you have any inside info for us? Tips. You're the first I've heard. Just to be clear, there have been 3 rounds so far:

1) ED
2) Rd 1
3) Rd 2 (Jan 7 Deadline)

...and you already received one for Rd 2?

LOL.......All sorts of weird doubts.......We have waited so long.....isn't it so nerve wracking to wait for another couple of more minutes?

More or less me too in the same boat as you all. Good Luck friends.

I'm going to apologize in advance for posting this, but... I'm going to ask nicely for people to please stop posting about waiting. If you get a notice from Duke, post away.

I keep checking this site every time someone posts something new, and it's junk. I'm sure I'm not the only one checking the site every time an email comes through. We're all in the same boat, we're all stressed out (well at least I am), and I have a hunch Duke will flip the switch and we'll all get emails. Until then, good luck to everyone. I'm sure there will be a ton of posts once the emails come through.
