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?


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



God I love fuqua.

Someone once told me to beware of the ides of March... I'm hoping they were foreshadowing good news...

You don't know yet if you have to wait until Monday. Since they're changing things up they could do phone calls both days.. that would be a horrible weekend of waiting though..


Exactly. Not knowing if every admit gets a phone call or some will just have to wait til Monday is silly. They know everyone talks about this stuff online and it just makes it much more stressful for all involved. Fuqua had my favorite process because they said they'd tell you on a specific date at a specific time. Makes it sooooo much less stressfull.


True, but from a school that stands behind their team aspect and student run campus, it always seemed a bit impersonal that you found out that you were admitted through a computer...

I was called by Adcom.

I personally like the surprise, as it allowed me to have a nice tipple of whisky rather than worrying all weekend. As always, YMMV.

I received the call from a faculty member (not adcom) about an hour ago. I am based in Dallas. He said I was "one of the 10 highest priority" admitted. Not sure if that means scholarship or not. I wonder if they tell that to everyone.

This is the part of the process that really irks me. I don't even want to think about how much everything has cost to this point...let alone the actual tuition fees. Sigh.


I feel your pain. I've been working for nearly 5 years.. built up a decent amount of life's savings. It's hard to swallow the entire cost that this 2-year journey will take - a large debt is no joke.
Which is ALL the more reason to maximize every resource and squeeze out every little bit of fun/education/perk/relationship from this endeavor. No coasting here!


Exactly. Go big or go home. Find somewhere where it'll be worth it to potentially eat ramen for the next few years just to make ends meet ;) but more so, find somewhere where there's free food everywhere so you don't have to spend 75 cents that you don't have on ramen lol

Based on the admit letter that you should've already received, we should expect a separate email with the login credentials. Not sure when though - It was listed as step #2 after deposit payment and confirming acceptance. Not sure if this means #2 will only happen after #1 is completed, i.e. after Duke receives our deposit, OR #2 can happen in parallel to #1.

You'll get a login to the admit portal in a few days via email. No deposit necessary for that information.

Congrats to all admits.

I have a quick point to make. Quite a few of those waitlisted or dinged are expressing sentiments that I think, though understandable given the circumstances, are not necessarily kosher. Everyone admitted had to go through the same steps as those who didn't make the cut - money, time, sleepless nights, etc. Ideally, we enter this process knowing that nothing is guaranteed, because each spot is fought for by several talented applicants - I thus find it hard to understand why some dinged applicants say "I was expecting an admit." No way, Jose. No one should EXPECT an admit, no matter how fantastic your interview or stats were. Would you say the same if you were applying to HSW. Don't forget that many of the same kids apply to the same top ten schools, so it's not realistic to apply to a competitive school like Fuqua and EXPECT an admit, just because you had to spend money to buy to tickets and accommodation. Come on, guys...lets be fair to the hardworking admisson committees and the rigorous admission process.

MBA application can be a really humbling experience and the earlier you approach it with a fair amount of grounding/respect/moderate expectation, the more pleasantly surprising you would find the experience.



All the best to everyone though out the remainder of the app process.

This message clearly applies to me. Didn't mean any disrespect to anybody else on here and certainly not Fuqua! Just thought it was my best app and definitely was my best interview so I was more confident here than with others I applied to. Congrats everyone who got in!

I used the same information I used to login to the interview system and it worked.

Like some of the posters above, I was really bummed not to get a phone call after getting the online acceptance letter. It's been 2 days already and I haven't heard from anyone...

The whole bschool application process reminds me a bit of 'rush,' if any of you were in the Greek system in college. It's definitely a hands-on process that requires a lot of high-touch communication. There's nothing that can quite replace the thrill of getting a phone call inviting you to the 'cool kids club.' It generates a lot more excitement than to get a letter with no personal touch. I definitely appreciate that students are on vacation and ad coms are busy, but maybe next year they'll start doing calls before the email notification.

Nonetheless, excited to get an acceptance!
Did GMATClub just change Fuqua AdCom behavior? After all the complaints in R1, and losing aerien to Yale, Fuqua AdCom finally puts some personal touch to the admission process.

+1 for social media!
+1 for Fuqua AdCom responding to social media!


Haha I didn't realize I had such power, especially at a school I didn't matriculate at (hmm..I wonder what I can do at Yale?)! :P But props to Fuqua for the changes. I'm sure the R2s who received that phone call appreciate it!!

I got the admit on Friday and it took me less than 12 hours to decide that I am definitely matriculating! I haven't even heard back from Kellogg yet, and am still on the Columbia waitlist, but Fuqua has always been my #1! I think even if I got off the very prestigious Columbia w/l I still wouldn't think twice about matriculating to Duke. After spending 3 days down in Durham for Women's Weekend I know how awesome the people are and love the beautiful environment of NC. Also, the faculty are some amazing people. I cannot wait for August, and can't believe how lucky I am, it's an incredible feeling and I can't believe I'm actually here. To all of those still waiting - keep a positive attitude and relax. You will end up wherever you're supposed to be!


I LOVE that you will be my classmate <3 :-)
