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?


I havent gotten the follow up email on how to schedule interviews either. I guess we might have to wait until the 11th. I did get an email around 11:00am PST that said my interview status had been updated.

Congrats to everyone who got invited!

Hi , i have a starter question, ( which i might be able to find on previous posts.. but let me ask ) . So when i entered the page this morning, I saw the status Not Invited ( yeah well ), I just wonder, if there is also a status 'waitlisted' on that page for some applicants?
I am just thinking, the possibility of being viewed for 'Not Invited' would be pretty low if waitlist also exit , right?
I am sure there are people like me who think they had a good chance while not being invited to interview, i would be really happy to recieve some feedbacks so that i could understand what was not working about it, so we could improve for future. Lets be hopeful for now=)

Awake the whole night at the 'Youth Square' in Bangladesh to protest for injustice. Came back home and the first thing i did is to power up my withered laptop and check the application status!! guess what! Invited :DDD couldn't be happier!

Best wishes to all.

Hi all!!

I am invited too..

I do not know if I shall be "extremely" happy about this!! :?: :?: :?:

Allow me to elaborate...

How many applicants are interviewed? If all applicants or 90% of them are invited, so not big deal.

Sorry for being a party breaker...(besides I am in the same party...) but it is like being happy for something that is not a real surprise!!

Please tell me your opinion on this...

I will most appreciate, as I am a little bit confused :? :? :?

ps Sorry again.. I do not mean to " destroy" hopes or happiness feelings... besides as I said I am also destroying mine....

I wouldn't worry about it. When I went to visit the school the adcon told me they interview people that they like but aren't quite sure about. They might already be sure about you!

is there a difference between 'not invited' and 'waitlisted'? Are people who are saying wait listed actually see that on their application status?

I'm a bit skeptical about this... Since Duke truly is driven by fit, I cannot imagine they would accept anyone without an interview(maybe some extreme exception). I have always heard the exact opposite from Fuqua. I'm almost positive that they invite applicants that they are interested in, and use the interview as a way to make sure they would fit, and that their story translates. To those that have not been invited, I think the best case scenario now is to be waitlisted without interview.

There is even a section on the waitlist FAQ

I was waitlisted for an interview. What should I do?
You will receive an e-mailed invitation to participate in the next round of interviews in the location you pre-selected on your application. No action is needed on your part until you receive the e-mail. The admissions committee will review your completed interview evaluation as a part of your total application and will provide an updated decision on your application after the next admissions deadline. Please refer to our Web site for details on the interview invitation and decision release timeline.

I have no clue to how common a waitlist without interview is, but there is still hope.


This also matches what I have consistently been told by Fuqua. All admitted applicants will be interviewed at some point in the process.

In response to a few others' questions regarding waitlist and interview invite status, I believe 'not invited' merely indicates they are not inviting you to interview at this time. Doesn't mean you can't get invited later in the process and/or waitlisted.

No one gets admitted without intvw! Infact for Duke the ratio of acceptance to interview invites would be much lower because of their self initiated interview.
Not invited in R2 means little hope, considering their is already a long line up of WL-ed candidate from EA/R1.

I agree, it seems strange. Just relaying what I was told

Any idea when you get the scheduling email is sent out? I want to book my expensive flight, before it goes more expensive.

Did any R1 admits get the email about background checks? The timing doesn't make sense to me ... are we supposed to do the background check before we submit our deposits? Did I get this email by mistake (ie was it intended for someone who already submitted their deposit)?

I got the background check email today as well. Suspecting that they just send it to all admits at the same time, as I have yet to submit my deposit.

Will be interviewing in the Shanghai Hub. Duke booked Le Royal Meridian, in which admission events will also be held on that day. It's really a good opportunity to let Duke know more of me and vise versa. Good luck to all those invited!
