Does Fuqua give re-applicants feedback?

Would be good to know incase the waitlist doesn't go my way this year.

They don't. However, if you end up making it to the Summer WL and you get lucky with your assigned WL Counselor, you might be able to get valuable advice.

Good luck!

Congrats! You should come to Fuqua, you will be very unique. I don't think we have any pure Australians here, only some who were born there but moved around. Help us build the brand down under. I really want to work in the ANZ area one day =D

Well the R3 deposit deadline is today.
I'm hanging on hope that tomorrow will bring some waitlist updates (for better or for worse)

If the timeline is similar to last year's, you should be receiving an email from your Waitlist Counselor in early June. Good luck!

A word of advice, although totally from my speculation. If you are on the waitlist, maybe not now, but as time gets closer to orientation, you should try to be connected with the school, to let them know your commitment. From a school perspective nearing orientation, they are on a time crunch as well, and are looking to fill all the seats. They want someone who is committed mentally and financially, and can pack up and move right away. I remember that Liz said during our orientation to make sure that we sign in, so she can finalize the class and pull any waitlisters. Of the classmates I know who got off the waitlist last minute, many were local or dual degrees (who were already at Duke).

I'm on the WL at Fuqua and was wondering what the groups thoughts about submitting a short video was? I know Booth, Stern, etc. allow video submission.

Congrats! You mean you told them to take you off the waitlist, but they called and said they could admit you? Can you clarify a bit?

Sorry for the delay in response, I will try to clarify a bit...

I did not get asked to be moved off the waitlist (I still wanted to attend Fuqua).

Here is how I received by admittance: I received a call from Sharon who first asked if I was still interested in Duke, once I confirmed my interest, she informed me that there was an available spot that they wanted to offer me. I was told that after my deposit was submitted I would receive more information....It seems to me that they are trying to find students who will matriculate quickly. Tuesday, May 29th is the date she gave me but preferred my deposit was submitted sooner. Fortunately for me this was not a difficult decision and I will be attending Fuqua in the Fall :)

Hope this information helps, please let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck to the other Waitlisters!

I'm really not sure if this is the most productive and effective way to update AdCom. Otherwise, they would specify this as one of your options. Furthermore, if you only plan on reusing something that you have submitted to Booth or Stern, then that means your video does not exactly do anything to convince AdCom that Duke is a perfect fit for you. I don't think this will hurt your chances, but I am not entirely certain if it would significantly help you either.

Good luck!

I was on the WL from round 2 and got a call from Fuqua last Thursday 5-24-12 and had the exact same conversation with someone from admissions. I sent in my deposit and I will be attending Fuqua in the fall!

Congrats to the recent WL admits! Any tips on how you kept in contact with the Adcom while on the WL, and what additional materials you submitted? Also, just curious, but what concentrations are you pursuing (Finance, Marketing... etc)?

I'm a Finance concentration from West Coast. I did everything and anything: wrote a letter, additional recommendations, alum shout-outs, etc...I was even about to submit a short video but then was accepted before I got into it.
