You should ask the school for this. I think international students apply for F-1. J-1 is for studying aboard programs, not for studying in the US for full-time.

How does Ross compare to Fuqua in this regard? Deciding between the two, and am in this same boat of trying to get into consulting back in the West Coast (SF, hopefully). Sounds like it could be quite difficult to get back here straight out of school.


I do not know much about Ross, but I would look at their hiring reports. In terms of specific offices, unless the school is based in that region getting out to that region will be the same from any school.

Hope I am at the right place for my question. Can someone please shed some lights on the Cross-Continenet program? Is it consider a part-time/accelerated program? What type of students are Duke looking for for this program?

I am just casually browsing through the website right now and I found some info regarding the program, but don't recall seeing it being discuss much on here and various GMAT sites. Can anyone give me some pointers on this?

I am looking to do a PT program and the Cross-Continent format seems to be somewhat less demanding in terms of length and actual class time (16 months, 6 In-person session at the campus at Durham), and the GMAT avg. is definitely not as high (mid. 80% ranges from 540 - 720).

Thanks for the help, and congrats to all of the admits!

CCMBA is a part-time MBA program. The key differentiator is that you attend 6 intensive academic sessions in classrooms across the world.

Thanks for the reply!

The reason I wasn't sure was that because I don't see it being ranked at various PT MBA ranking. I thought the program is considered as Online or some other form of MBA.

Is it competitive to get into? Is the program cater more to international students over US applicants? Is there any key differences between Cross Continent MBA vs FT and EMBA at Duke?

Sorry for all of the questions... as I have mentioned, there just isn't much available info on this that I've came across

Sorry, I'm not farmiliar with the program. If you are interested, feel free to call the program office, I'm sure they will be happy to answer some of your questions.

Just to provide a different perspective on the program, here's an outside article on CCMBA: http://www.businessbecause.com/news/Exe ... -mba-81410

From your information, it appears you are chinese. I think you will find the Chinese version of GMATClub more helpful with answering these types of question. http://forum.chasedream.com/

Good luck!

I'm in the same boat. I applied in R2, got waitlisted, asked to interview, interviewed in RD3 and awaiting the May 4th decision.

I've heard that if you are waitlisted and then invited to the interview, the interview matters quite a bit. I think it's still an uphill battle though.

Can anyone else shed light on the topic?

It's always an uphill battle when you get waitlisted, whether it is before or after the interview. The good thing about being invited to interview after getting waitlisted is that you are more aware of where you stand, so you will more likely be a lot more prepared to address your weaknesses.

As far as your chances are concerned, all I can say is that R3 is an enigma. It really depends on how the class is shaping up after the first two rounds. Plenty of qualified candidates are not accepted in R3, so you better hope that admitted applicants, who share a similar background, decide not to pay the deposit on the May 1st deposit deadline.

Good luck!

Couldn't understand a single word in what they sang:) Perhaps, the request of AdCom that I have to take language institute courses was right.

Re: Duke Fuqua 2012 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] New post 30 Apr 2012, 08:29
Has anyone been admitted off the waitlist? I was an early action applicant and was wait listed in December. They don't really offer much information when I call the office. I've submitted my transcript showing I took Calculus, my annual review from my boss showing that I performed well this year (I received a nice bonus and a 10% raise) and I have called on family friends who are Fuqua Alum to put in a good word. Apparently, the good word doesn't go nearly as far if it happens after I get waitlisted. They said this themselves. It would have been better to get those as recommendations in my initial application. They say this is because of the structure of the waitlist and how it ties to the class profile. Does anyone have any bright ideas about additional, non-annoying things I could do to improve my chances? I asked the admissions office if they wanted another interview or if they wanted another essay and they said no. My situation is unique in that my family is from Durham and I have an infant, so Duke is the only school I would like to go to (for support). It sucks feeling in limbo, but I know a lot of other people are in the same position. Good luck to all and advice would be greatly appreciated.

I know that some decisions will be rendered on the 4th with the R3 applicants.

Not all waitlisted applicants will receive a decision. My question is, how good is the chance past that 4th of May decision date for the waitlisted applicants?

Is the activity usually really slow historically past that date?
Ding/Acceptance will be a good closure for sure.

Just hoping the 2012 applicants could provide some advice. I'm looking to understand when I should expect to see the 2013 application questions released? When were they for the previous year?

Thanks!

In last year's thread there was one admit off the waitlist in June (quite a bit after the R3 deadline).

As an international applicant I think R3 will be judgement day for better or worse. As it is, a visa may be difficult to turn around before August. Fingers cross for the R3 call!

Well I think it is actually dependent on what happens today, the deposit deadline day for R1 and R2. If a large number of admits accept, then you are correct, R3 is the best last chance for WLters especially internationals. If a large number of admits do not accept, then adcom has its work cut out, sifting between R3 and WL piles to pullout the best candidates.
They would have done their groundwork of course, shortlisting a consolidated list of probables from both pools but it depends on whether that shortlist is sufficient or not. Also note that the shortlist may continuously evolve based on updates submitted by R3 and WL applicants.
Fuqua gives itself only 3 days to finalize things between the deposit deadline and R3 decision day, as opposed to say Ross which gives itself a couple of weeks. That can mean that Fuqua adcom is either very good at estimating yield or chances of getting admitted after R3 decisions are higher in Fuqua than Ross, all other things considered equal.

Ah well never mind. :) Just relax and all the very best of luck to you!
