I got a call on Wednesday from Sharon, one of the admissions directors, regarding a merit scholarship. They may still be calling people. Hope you hear good news!

thanks, threestripes. your information is always so helpful.

I just think that if they have a round 3, they should allocate at least 5-10% of spots there to make it meaningful. In addition, do they want best candidates or candidates who apply early. It is interesting that they gave so much advantage to early applicants.

Well, anyways, I will try my best to ace the interview.


Maybe it has something to do with the competition between all those backlogged as Wait-lists from EA, R1, R2 etc and the nature of the competition greatly impacts how many WL-ers get admitted vs. direct R3 applicants.

Honestly, I think if you're applying to round 3, it has to be in your mind that the likelihood of acceptance is going to be small unless you're clearly above the grade in most of the categories of your application. Even then, there's no guarantee.

As other people have suggested, I think the choices in round 3 are much more about filling out the class than merely taking qualified candidates. I'm not sure if that means "we need more int'l kids" or "we've got too many accountants" or "our average GMAT is low, just take some really high GMAT kids" or what, but it seems to be fairly acknowledged that Round 3 is not approached the same way as previous rounds.

If Duke is looking for 450 kids, and they've got 420 deposits by the time interviews for Round 3 are finished, they're really only going to be looking for 30 kids between the waitlists and the Round 3 applicants, whether there are 50 round 3 applicants or 500.

My understanding is that's probably true for most top schools.

It's an unfortunate reality of Round 3, but a fairly well-documented one. It almost surprises me that there isn't a "PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK" pop-up when you select round 3 app.

That being said, of course, good luck to the round 3'ers! If it doesn't work out, go EA next year and you'll have a much better shot!

I received a call last Monday with good news about a scholarship. I was told they were pulling together admit packs to be sent end of week / early next week. Now I just need to decide between Booth and Fuqua w/ $$. Glad to finally be in this position after dealing w/ two WLs that didn't work out last time around.

So I just booked my annoyingly expensive ticket from California for BDW and get in Thursday April 12th in the am. Seeing as I have no friends there, nor have I ever been to NC is anyone in a similar situation that will be there for BDW that would want to get a meal or do some sight seeing or something on Thursday? I like making friends! PM me if interested

There will be plenty of activities during BDW, you should worry about not having stuff to do.

Do you guys know if Fuqua scholarships are merit-based or need-based? Perhaps both?

What is the difference between 'Not Invited' and 'Wait listed'. Does the former imply you have zero chance of being interviewed and are basically awaiting a formal rejection? Does the latter only apply to post-interview status or pre-interview status as well? If so, wouldn't it be the same as being 'Not Invited'?

This is a weird system, hence all the questions!

Applicants can only officially get waitlisted on the decision date, whether or not they are invited to interview.

Try posting this on the FB group wall. You'll probably get more responses over there.

Hi inspired12 or any other people who are coming early to BDW, feel free to go to some of the campus events that day, or see if you can sit in on a class. It will get you a feel for Fuqua student life.

To see a list of all the events going on at Fuqua: https://fuqua.campusgroups.com/calendar

On Thursday (April 12th), it looks like Nissan is doing a talk about how they recovered from the Tsunami, sounds very interesting.

Anyone received their admit packs? There is a message in FB that some have already received. So i'm pondering whether some of those who live outside NC have received either

For those WLers who are interested, the decision will be rendered with the R3 applicants (4th of May).

Ok, now let me rephrase it: is there anyone who hasn't yet received their packs? Surely, except for me
