I did not get the scheduling mail.....but when I went to Duke Site, the status is invited!!

One of the very few schools I applied to (that too last minute!) and wanted to get in....excited over it :)

Any idea how many people they invite and how many get admitted?

Hi Everyone, just got the invite. I have heard that 40% of ppl invited gets the job. But don't quote me. We should all just do our best. I also just came back from a McCombs interview at noon. Took a nap, and saw this invitation, it is a good day certainly. :D

Best of luck to everyone.

Invited to interview. Congrats to y'all, too!

Question: I visited Duke in early November (all day visit) but turned in the application for Round 2. I'm almost positive that I put down that I would be willing to travel to Durham for the interview. However, I turned in the app before the Ross decisions came out-at that point I had only been accepted at CMU with a waitlist at Booth.

Is it going to look really bad if I stick to an alumni interview for Duke after declaring that I was willing to do an on-campus interview?

I know that makes me sound like a jerk but basically I've a) given my notice at work b) am hoarding leave for an eye operation + GBR c) am jealously hoarding the last of my income/paychecks for school d) I sent in Ross's deposit because I don't want to sit around waiting for Booth to accept/decline without securing the good offer that I had (my parents just pointed this out to me 5 times when I called them about Fuqua) e) I had 5 interviews during R1 and I spent 99% of my vacation this year flying around for b-school interviews and I feel just about done using hardearned (we build-as-we-go) vacation days for b-school interviews.

Just scheduled the interview, Feb 14... hm, Valentine's day. Now thinking about it, taking the last spot on valentine's day might have been a bonehead move

I was "looking fly" in business casual and was admitted as well. Maybe it was because I wore socks though. :wink:

I wore a suit and I got in round 1...But I never wear suits. In fact, I didn't even own one before MBA interviews. Since I went out and bought one, I wasn't going to let it go to waste and go business casual. I don't think it really matters for Fuqua. I felt like the atmosphere was really laid back and the interview was more of a conversation. I think that I would have gotten in business casual as well.
