I can add something to that. I hope someone from Duke can confirm this.

At an information session with Dan McCleary Sir we got to know that Duke is not very rigid with the recommendation coming in right at the time of the deadline. However, you cannot make them wait for too long either.

If the application is complete you get a confirmation within a week or so but if one recommendation remains, then you will get that notice too. The Adcom needs to review your file and it would be wise to have that last piece submitted within a few days of that notice or it will be a risk considering that the Adcom might just move along with the remaining pile, keeping you for the next round.

As I said before, I hope someone from Duke can confirm this.

A very Happy New Year 2013 to everyone.


I would say that this is fairly accurate. However, you should definitely try to get everything in on time.

Good luck all!

Thek, Shubhankar might be right, but hte conventional logic with these schools is that you picked your reference who should testify towards your best work, and in general, they should have your back. If they don't pull through, the schools may take it as "well you picked one person you worked with who couldn't pull through for you"

I know that sounds harsh, and hopefully I'm wrong as my reference for another Round 2 school is currently dragging their feet prior to the January 3rd deadline! Try one thing, I haven't done this as I doubt my referees would agree - offer to write your own reference for them and send it to them for their checking, if you have that relationship. My friend just got into Wharton and she says she wrote both her references (!)

Waitlisters -- I started the Fuqua WL thread. It was a huge help to me last year (at least there's a place to commiserate with everyone else who's waiting!). Good luck everyone and hopefully EA-ers see some movement soon.

R1s -- January has finally come. Good luck next week :) As we've seen before, no calls will go out before hand. Status update emails seem to be sent out either around noon ET or 3:30 pm ET and after, and if admitted, you'll then receive calls from your interviewer as well as your Fuqua Buddy. January 8th will certainly be a day of constant inbox refreshing!

Anyone know if I need scans of my official transcripts on my application?
The a small college I went to 10 years ago is losing their accreditation and wont give me any copies of the official transcripts.


You seem to be asking two separate questions and I will address them separately.

1) Can I send scans of transcripts on my application?

All scans of transcripts (official or unofficial) are considered unofficial. AFAIK, in the States, all college transcripts must be sealed in the envelope to be considered official. Thus, anything that gets sent through Apply Yourself will be considered self-reported and unofficial.

After you are admitted, you are required to have your official transcripts sent and I had ordered sealed transcripts to be sent to my house and I resent everything in a large envelope post admittance. Which leads to your next question of..

2) What do I do if the college I went to wont give me any copies of official transcripts if Duke needs them as part of the admission verification process?

If your college wont send you official transcripts, they should be at least able to send them on your behalf directly to the school (in this case, Duke). This is a service that all colleges should be able to provide regardless of accreditation status.

For R1, it was midnight of the date listed on the site, though I believe neither the website nor the application list the time explicitly. (There are definitely posts from me and some others asking this same question earlier on this thread :) )



I just saw this in my inbox while looking for my login details: the R2 deadline is mentioned in the R2 Deadline Notification (sent to me on 28 Dec). It's January 4 at 11:59PM EST, so there's still time!

Just submitted mine :-D

For the people asking about letters of rec being in late: one of my letters wasn't submitted on time for round 1. A few days later I received an email saying that the deadline for missing materials is 11/12/12 in order to be considered for round 1. When my letter of rec was submitted a day later, I received confirmation of that submission. Shortly after, I received an email saying the applicaftion was ready to proceed towards the evaluation stage.

good luck to all.


Typically late in the afternoon - between 2pm and 5pm EST you'll get an email.
The decision letter will be there when you log in.

Know that others (myself included) have refreshed the applicant page throughout the afternoon. :)
Doesn't make the decision come faster - but your letter will be there before the email goes out.

Not quite, there's still this much time left until Tuesday at Noon ET, the time that I'll probably start obsessively refreshing every inbox & status page I have access to :)

Your countdown failed me...no decision and it's 00:00:00:00 :P

jk, it kept me entertained for days :)
