I just got back from my visit/interview at Fuqua. I'll post a full rundown later but my time there was a blast. Fuqua and all the people there are really amazing!

I spent yesterday (friday) at Fuqua and had a great time. I sat in on a Marketing Class in the morning, interviewed mid morning, took a tour of the building and ended the day with Fuqua Friday.

The biggest thing I noticed at Fuqua was the people. I spoke to an endless amount of current students and I can't say enough about how welcoming and friendly they were.

I can corroborate everything tfincham86 just said. I was really impressed with the level of student involvement at the visit day. They really went out of their way to engage with the prospectives and they were a lot of fun to hang out with. And I'm not just saying that because I know they troll this forum :-D

Hi asimov,

I visited Fuqua last dec and attended a class and took a tour. Applying in EA. Scheduled an interview two weeks from now. Any suggestions for interview preparations?

Thanks.

Anyone planning to visit this Friday?
I will be visiting. Not interviewing, though.

Hi LionsSBC12, if you are visiting, you should contact the General Management Club at Fuqua. Saw that on your profile interest. They are pretty cool people, I bet they would be happy to chat with you at Fuqua Friday.

It was very laid back and coversational. It felt more like a conversation (although I did most of the talking) than an interview.

There were no really crazy questions, mainly Tell me about yourself, Why MBA? Why Fuqua? Why now?

Mine lasted about 50 min, with about 10 min at the end for me to ask questions. My interviewer was very informative and answered all my questions fully.

Fee waiver? I'll take one of those... Would be nice to get the entire thing waived instead of $100 to put towards visit/interview in 2 weeks.

I have question about GMAT score reporting. I took the GMAT twice. I reported my second GMAT score (which is lower than the first one) to Duke during my second GMAT exam. Do I need to send my first score to Duke ?
My reasoning is--they should have my first score as well, as it should have been reported along with second score.

I haven't applied to any schools yet so I can't be certain, but I was under the impression that you can (and probably should) report your highest score, as it is the one most schools consider.

I would send the first one as well, why take the chance?

I am pretty sure the score report you send has all scores that are not yet expired on it. I might be mistaken, but you might want to confirm with the GMAT or Duke and see what they have.

Expert's post
For those who are interested in leadership rotational program. GE recently published an article written by a Duke SY MBA student on its ECLP blog.

The article perfectly demonstrates the level of visibility from companies that you can get here at Fuqua: http://eclpblog.com/blog/2011/9/29/duke ... he-fe.html

The student had a roundtable with GE's CMO.

Yes I believe it does too, but who knows, what if they don't look at the official score until they want to confirm it after accepting a candidate? They may just go off of what someone puts in their application as they make their decisions. This is just hypothetical, I have no idea how they do it, but I wouldn't want to risk it.
