I am also in the same boat. However, i know from the BW board that Fuqua did remove people from the WL at the round 3 deadline. however, i don't have a lot of faith in waitlists this year (and this is coming from someone on 3 of them).

Will the school send any notice to the waitlisted student and let them know that at the end they are still getting rejected because no more seats left? I still haven't heard anything from Duke yet for the R2 WL. I know that the deadline for those who want to attend Duke to send in deposit is May 1st. I guess I should still wait a little bit longer? I am thinking maybe they want to know how many people actually send in the deposit and then decide to remove someone from WL? Any thoughts?

Did nobody report an admit for Round 3 ? There are no posts on Apr 23-24. Looks like intake in R3 was meager.

Hey everyone, I officially committed to Duke a few weeks ago.

I also wanted to pass along some information that I had from Admissions. They said that they had a really high yield from the early action round and rounds 1 and 2, so very few waitlisters and round 3 applicants will be getting in. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but hopefully you guys will still make it in.


Interesting! It will be neat to see what the final numbers turn out to be. I think Duke normally has a yield of around 50%?

Thanks for all those suggestions! I second the recommendations of Dain's Place and Parker & Otis. Toast is another favorite for lunch -- it's downtown at Five Points.

For car care, I can also recommend Neal's Garage, which is in walking distance of Station 9. I've found them honest and reasonably priced, and they give a 10% discount for Duke students. (A lot of places seem to do this.)

Also, for what it's worth, I prefer the Federal (bar) and Elmo's (diner) in Durham.


That makes me laugh! The mean salary for Class of 2009 actually goes up the fewer years of work experience you have!

Oh, I LOVE the fed - the food is fabulous, but it's smoky as hell and there's no pirate bartender....

And more to the point, what is up with those little-experience Fuquans? 3% means about 12 people. We only had one student in the class of 2009 with no work experience (a 5th-year lacrosse player with an exceptional story). We did have a number of PhDs who probably hadn't worked much, given that your average PhD takes 4-6 years (or more). And the JD/MBAs often have little or experience, since the JD is often a straight-out-of-undergrad thing to do. I suppose the attorneys might make pretty good money, but I wonder about the others? Any guesses?

Can any current student shed some light on this? they hire Kroll to do background checks. student must fill out a "data-sheet" (whatever that means) then kroll will do the rest.

What is asked in this "data sheet" and how do they go about verifying employment?
Do they just verify current employment, last 2 jobs, all jobs?
How do they do so, do we give them the contact info of your supervisor and they call/email them, or do they randomly call the public number listed for the company and ask to be connected to HR?
What if your file is not in the HR records, are you basically screwed?
What else do they ask the employer: job title, salary, etc?
