FROM Fuqua Current Student Blogs: On the Waitlist? Be Prepared.
Image
Guest Blogger: Willie Green, Daytime MBA Waitlist Manager

It’s that time of the year again. The Daytime MBA Class of 2016 is preparing to arrive on campus, and those of you on the waitlist are patiently waiting for news from our Office of Admissions that we have a spot available for you in this class. We could be admitting students from the waitlist up until the first day of Orientation, which starts July 30, which means you would need to make a decision, submit the $3,000 tuition deposit and transition very quickly! In anticipation of receiving that call, take a few minutes to review my post from last year that contains some helpful tips about what to expect and how to be prepared.

Please continue to be in touch with your waitlist counselor about any updates you may have, and don’t forget to send them to mbawaitlist@fuqua.duke.edu and copy your waitlist counselor.

Let's get this Fuquan party started! For those unaware, during last year's cycle hamm0 ran a terrific blog detailing his journey. He also provided awesome write-ups of each school he visited. So, I'm going to the vault for this retroactive post. Below is a link to hamm0's Fuqua summary. I encourage you to check out the rest of his site as well since it contains debriefs on schools such as Johnson, Tuck, Darden, and Ross. It's also a great look at the b-school process -- peaks and valleys for sure.

Fuqua's popular essay topic "25 Random Things" can also be a head-scratcher. Having trouble figuring out your 25? Check out this Fuquan's list to get some ideas: https://regions.fuqua.duke.edu/east-asia/2014/01/06/application-tips-and-my-25-random-things?category=uncategorized

How You Know You’ve Become a Second-Year Student [#permalink] New post 15 Jul 2014, 13:00

KUDOS
FROM Fuqua Current Student Blogs: How You Know You’ve Become a Second-Year Student
  • When half of the faces at Fuqua are unfamiliar, it means that a new first-year class has arrived – you’re a Second Year now.
  • When you can decide how many and which courses to take each term, you are a Second Year. No more 8 am core classes.
  • When you handle 3 different teams in a term rather than 1 designated C-LEAD (Consequential Leadership) team, you are a Second Year.
  • When you’ve mastered the ability to construct busy consulting-style slides, read 20-page cases in minutes, and compose concise case write-ups, you are a Second Year.
  • When you don’t feel the need to attend each and every conference or event because you’ve identified your true passion, you are a Second Year. Moreover, you have become a panelist and organizer instead of an attendee.
  • When you’ve narrowed down the number of clubs you’re actively involved in from 15 to 5, you are a Second Year. Vague dreams have faded, and a more realistic plan has emerged.
  • If internship recruiting is like the “first date,” then the second-year job search is like “speed dating,” quickly followed by “marriage.” For Second Years, there is less time for networking since on-campus recruiting wraps up in 2 months. Luckily, you can reconnect with old contacts and build off the relationships you started with recruiters in year 1 to expedite the process.
  • When you’ve switched from seeking advice to offering advice, you are a Second Year. It is time to give back through informational interviews, resume reviews, casing, and mock interviews with First Years, so that “Team Fuqua” continues.
  • When you know where every room is located at Fuqua, where your favorite Durham restaurants are, and every store located in Southpoint (the biggest shopping mall in Durham,) you are a Second Year. Bye bye, GPS.
  • When your classmates are all club co-presidents, Teaching Assistants for multiple courses, or some kind of fellow, you are a Second Year. After all, we all come here to become Leaders of Consequence.
  • For international students, when you know what the 80’s Party, Halloween Party, and Prom are, you are a Second Year.
  • When you study abroad, or when a third of your peers are gone for an exchange, you are a Second Year.
  • When you have time to work out, sleep for more than 7 hours every night, and don’t have to worry (too much) about your GPA anymore, you are a Second Year who has finished recruiting.
  • When your classmates are no longer new friends, but friends with whom you share a deep bond, you are a Second Year.
  • When you’ve tried skeet shooting, rock climbing, a half-marathon, and are planning for the next big thing, you are a Second Year.
  • Asia? Check. Europe? Check. Africa? Check. When you’re figuring out your next grand trip destination, you are a Second Year.
  • When seeing blossoms in spring makes you sad, you are a Second Year. The blossoms remind you that the count-down to graduation is winding to a close. Sadly, the second year goes very fast, and we will miss the awesome Fuqua experience.

In for R1!

Have my interview scheduled for 10/3! Looking forward to visiting and meeting folks there! Fuqua Friday should be an interesting thing too!

Anyone else visiting around that time? Would love to meet up!

Also, any current students willing to help out? Don't want to get lost. :D

I thought you had to wait for the application to go live to book your interview date. Thanks for posting this and giving the heads up that you can book interview dates separately. I just booked mine for the week after and was able to save some serious money by booking so far in advance. Props to you, anupamgupta2112!

Sure! I looked at the dates a couple of weeks back in fact. Just finalised my travel plans last week and booked the dates!

All the best for your application! Will be a great time!
