Sorry aerien, all R2 applicants are in for a surprise. Everybody keep your phones close to you!


bwaa, lol... well alright then :shock:


Lol...they're changing it up this round?! Exciting!! Perhaps R1 yield wasn't what they hoped for? Maybe they're taking personalizing the admit process to heart this time?

Just got the call, I'm in! It came at 9:15a EST. I'm in Charleston, SC. I wasn't expecting anything until Monday.

Oh no. I am expecting a Tuck call today, and now Duke is calling also. Today will be the most unproductive and anxiety filled day of my life.

Has nothing to do with yield. Students listen and we are truly a student run school...we make change happen!

Not gonna lie, the unexpected call was a very welcome surprise. 6 that I know of from China received a call (including me, if I count as a US citizen). All of us were really impressed by the Fuqua interview experience, so I expect a good yield from this group. It seems that Fuqua had ~35 Chinese students last year, so I expect that a few more are getting a ring. If not today, then on Monday.

Best of luck. I know that the WL is teh suck, but they are probably calling the 2nd round applicants before they get around to the 1st round WLers.

Fuqua has a lot to love.

So if I don't get a call today, does that mean I'm not in? Or is there still a possibility of getting a call on Monday?
