Do you have an idea about the number of on-campus interview slots? Do they fill up fast ?

Can you only interview with 2nd years only, or with adcom also?

Also, If current admits can share any tips, that would be very helpful.

Very surprised to receive an interview invite despite a low GPA & GMAT. Will be preparing to put my best foot forward during the interview process. Congrats to those of you who also received invites.

Is there a specific date that you get off the wait list or potentially you can be there till June? Or have they said you should receive a decision on the WL decision by Round 2 (3/18)?


You can be on the WL until August (when Orientation ends basically). Once you're on the WL, you wait it out until they give you a final result or you take yourself off. It can be quite a long wait.



Yep, and the reason why r2 decision day is my drop dead date, is because I'd rather not wait until late May (r3 decision day) to plan a move, when I have been accepted to a great school already. Its all personal choice. I'd honestly prefer a ding over a continued waitlist next round, I'd hate to wonder "what if"

Anyway, CONGRATS TO ALL INVITED! I highly recommend interviewing on campus if possible, Fuqua is a great place, and the people are amazing


Dude, Johnson is amazing - so kudos on g getting in. If you get in Fuqua, would you go there over Johnson? If not maybe you can just make up your mind now and be done with it :-). Congrats again.

Just recieved a mail saying that I am not invited. it also says this is not the final decision.
Should I consider myself yet have chance to get invited? or Should I just let it go.
I'm losing hope now. Any related information from round 1?

From my layperson's understanding, you could still get an interview for this or next round. [edited for misinformation]

From my layperson's understanding, you can still be waitlisted and interviewed in R3. I don't know that they send out more invites for R2 interviews. but again, I know very little about the process.


The language in the email is pretty clear:
"If you have been waitlisted or have not been invited, please note thatthis is not a final decision on your application. The interview invitation is highly selective.It is possible that you would be invited to interview at a later stage in this round or in future rounds. If your interview status should change, our office will notify you directly."

I got the same e-mail, I'm taking it as a ding. Too bad because Fuqua was my #1 choice.

Don't give up hope! When I went to visit the school the adcon told us that they use interviews when 'they think someone is the right fit but not quite sure'. So maybe they already know you're in!

App status says invited! I didn't get the follow-up email yet though. Has anyone else gotten it? I'm not an international student but am living overseas and will be interviewing in London, which maybe is why I haven't received it yet?
