I spent about 5 minutes sitting quietly thinking about how I would proceed with Duke. Then I said, "GET YOURSELF TOGETHER, MAN." I'm not giving up on Duke without the fight of my life. GRE update, transcript update with 4 additional As in accounting and finance, and 4 additional recs (1 professional, 2 academic, 1 community service) are on their way.

YOU'LL NEVER TAKE MY FREEDDDDDDDOMMMMMMMMMM!!!

I had my interview this past Saturday. My interviewer asked me the questions in red. It's possible that the questions in blue were not asked because I covered them before my interviewer could even get to them.

I am confused with Duke-2 and Duke-3 essay:
Duke-2: How will your background, values, and non-work activities enhance the experience of other Duke MBA students and add value to Fuqua’s diverse culture?

Here I am writing all about my values and non-work activities but not sure how much I should mention about specific fuqua activities, my future desire involvement and fun clubs? Considering we have why Duke? in essay 3
Any thoughts, help or your approach to this essay??


Essay 2 should be more focussed on you - your experiences and values. Describe 2-3 of them in short if you can. Devote the last part to how that will connect with Fuqua's culture eg: if you are strong on ethics, show what clubs/classes you might be able to contribute in. Note that this essay is a GIVE to Fuqua essay.

Essay 3 is a take from Fuqua essay. What interests you about the school? Maybe the fact that it is in a university thats big on sports and you'll get a good feel of the overall student experience? Maybe Durham and NC attract you? What kind of classes/professors are you looking for that are at Duke but no where else. stuff like that

There could be a little overlap in 2 and 3, but I would recommend minimizing that. As then it may seem you haven't done enough research to appropriately comment on the school's diversity.

hope this helps.

Hi bb,

In the first page, in the deadlines box is messed up. Rd 1 is due on Nov 1 and Rd 2 on Jan 4, while deadline box makes it look like Rd 2 is on Nov 1 and Rd 3 on Jan 4.

Is there a word or page limit for recommendation responses?


Yes, 2000 chars each I believe.

It's a good idea to set yourself up as a recommender to see what your recommender will see. Then you can prep them better with no surprises. You can delete from the list afterwards.

Congrats threestripes for admit!
I noticed that you were W/L last year. Were you able to change something drastically in your application this year that you think helped you? Just curious :)
You don't have to answer it now, you can open champagne first :P

I'm in!!! I'm so happy right now!!!


My hands are still shaking so I would probably just spill the champagne... so I'll be hanging out here in the meantime. :)

Well, I applied in R3 last year, which was application suicide. I think I was able to make a strong case for myself, which is why they put me on the waitlist.

I was lucky enough to get a raise after I submitted my application in March 2011. And then in October, I was promoted (and got a raise again).

On top of that, I ramped up my extracurricular activities. However, instead of volunteering just for the sake of volunteering, I absolutely made sure that these activities were relevant to my short and long-term goals.

I can give you some more details if you send me a PM. I don't want to end up hijacking the thread talking about my "accomplishments". :)

Great idea, ykg1234! I am also offering my services to anybody who is looking for help. I have a 690 GMAT and a 2.85 uGPA, so they must have liked my essays (in addition to my resume).

It'll most likely be released by noon (Eastern) today. But at the end of day at the latest.

Good luck everyone on getting an interview invitation, and the application process. Hope to see some of you at Fuqua next year!
