Lol! I called her back twice but couldn't catch her. Based on the time of day i'm guessing we won't get to touch base until Monday. I know exactly who the woman is though, I've met her a few times over the years, so I'm really anxious to speak with her!

and of course this will probably more than make up for my earlier grumbles about not getting a phone call on decision day. :-X

Hi all,

Every morning since the decision was released, I've woken up thinking that I dreamt the whole thing up. I've logged into the site a couple of times since just to confirm that the decision is still an admit.

I haven't suffered from lackofcontactitis because I've called the local alums who helped me through the process, and their excited reactions at my success was just the icing on the cake. Well, the first layer of icing. The second layer of icing was when I received a phone call from Megan around mid-day EST on Friday to tell me that they were going to help me out with some $$. My feet haven't touched the ground since. So blessed... _________________ If you found my contribution helpful, please click the +1 Kudos button on the left, Thanks Intern Joined: 11 Jan 2013 Posts: 2 Schools: CBS '15 (S) GMAT 1: Q V Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 0 [0], given: 0 Re: Duke (Fuqua) 2013 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] ### Show Tags 12 Jan 2013, 09:18 I am hoping I could get some of your advice on a perhaps unique situation I'm currently in with respect to Duke. I work at a relatively small firm. Other than myself, there are two other guys (guy A and guy B) from my firm who are applying to b-schools this year (Duke and others). It turns out we are applying to almost exactly the same schools in the same round.A Guy A and myself have not gotten recommendation letters from our current supervisors at the firm because they would be upset if we stated our intentions to leave. So we have gotten letters from clients, former firm, etc. But Guy B has gotten letters from current supervisors at the firm. The reason he was able to do this is because he quit last fall, then asked for the letters. However, despite the fact that his employment has ended and he has not come to work for the last few months, on his application he stated that he is still employed at the firm and will be employed until the spring of this year. The current supervisors who wrote the letters agreed to keep this a secret from adcoms. He even sent around an email on the last day telling us to basically to lie if adcoms or background checkers called. Basically what he's been doing since fall is sitting at home exclusively working on his MBA apps, retaking the GMATs, going on campus visits, etc. I truly think what Guy B is doing is really really unethical and it also damages my and Guy A's chances because we're applying to the same schools. I don't dislike Guy B and generally wish him well, but I really think what he is doing is cheating adcoms, me, fellow students, etc. Please let me know what I should do? Should I inform the adcoms about this?

Should I inform the adcoms about this? You are in a really tight corner. But for virtually the whole company to agree to back his lie then sorry to say it but the integrity of your company is questionable. If you really feel strongly about reporting it, you can always call adcom to report it anonymously. But the downside of doing it anonymously is that, the school will just blacklist the company and you will also be affected so i think the best thing to do is to call and identify yourself before reporting it so they dont mix you up with the bunch or another route may be to tell them the name of that applicant who is doing that so they can single him out.

Also, how do they give these scholarships? Do they have a set budget of money to give away or do they try to enroll the best students with minimal amount of scholarships? What happens to the money when a student awarded with that money decides to go to another school?

There are a high level of interest from the student body to reach out on a volunteer basis, but as highhopes said, the students’ hands are tied, and frankly, I believe there is strong entrenched interest in AdCom to keep control. Hopefully, as Megan gain more experience on the job, things will change for the better. I know all of Fuqua students/alum would agree that having a strong student body is one of the most important aspects of Team Fuqua. Having interacted with several great admits who turned down the offer because of the distaste in the admit experience, I am deeply disappointed at the admission’s performance. Luckily, the experience as a student has no correlation with the admit experience. Hi Asimov, how was your experience with the career management center at Fuqua? I know that CMC and admissions are not correlated, but the callousness of adcom make me doubt the entire Fuqua administration. Can some current student/alumni comment on the career management center at Duke? Thanks.

Hi all,

Not sure if anyone can help me, but I'm looking at funding options. I'm from South Africa. I have a co-signer, but they're Canadian, not American. Do you know of any US banks that would give loans with Canadian co-signers?

Thanks

i don't think you need a co-signer for fuqua loan.

Hi Travisz,

Thanks for the quick response. I'm looking to find another loan option that will give me a lower interest rate with a Canadian co-signer. Don't know if that exists but you could save megabucks if it did.

Thanks

They're supposed to go out for 2 weeks from the result date -- don't lose hope until 5pm on the 22nd!

And phone call or not, any result is probably included in the admit package too...
