I have a question that I figured would be better answered by people who'd already applied/been accepted to Fuqua...

If I apply ED in this fall, will that impact scholarship decisions? I'm not presuming that I'm going to be offered a scholarship by Fuqua, but would they even have any incentive to consider me for a scholarship if they'd already accepted me ED (since obviously, I'm already going there so they wouldn't need to "woo" me away from another school). Can anyone offer insight or personal experience? Thanks! Congratulations to all those accepted and good luck to the waitlisted!

WOW. I got my admit package in the mail yesterday and was surprised and delighted to find that Duke offered me a very hefty merit scholarship. I'm still in a state of shock :punk



What do you consider "hefty"? I got $8000/yr, and consider that pretty useless given that the education costs almost $130,000.

Did you fly out for your interview or do it in LA?

Trying to discern whether flying out is worth it. I'm guessing no if they're handing out scholarships to people that didn't visit.

I applied round 2 and visited the campus for a class tour and the interview.

18,000/year -- 18/50 (tutition only) = 36% savings so I view 36% scholarship as very generous, considering I wasn't expecting a scholarship at all!!! :bouncer


I wonder what it takes to get Duke to give a student the full $135k it costs to go there. These small scholarships barely make a dent in the fees. Even with your $36k, you're still going to pay them almost $100k.

I'm sorry to hear that 36% off barely makes a dent to you. For me that was great news as I wasn't expecting anything and I'm very appreciative that Duke would be so generous!

Regardless of what people say: the $18k is AWESOME, you should be PROUD of it, and it will DEFINITELY help out with your overall finances. Congrats!

Just wondering... did anyone who got dinged receive a call from admissions asking to consider the cross-continent MBA program?

I got a call from an officer who told me although I was dinged for day-time, they found I am a great fit for cross-continent... and asked me to consider...

I was waitlisted in round 1 and admitted off the waitlist in round 2. They admit people at the next decision date, so you should hear something on the round 3 decision date.

Well, the decision date for round 3 was April 23rd which is already passed. Yet, my status did not change. I guess this probably is equivalent to a rejection.
