Yeah, I read one of his books early in the app process, and I've seen a few recordings of speaking engagements. He's one of the reasons Duke is so far up my list.



nice. Would they take us off of WL if we get an "A" in this course? haha.


Ha, it cant hurt... man, now it looks like I lost my competitive advantage on the WL..

For all of you still waiting, or dinged, atleast we can take a course with one of the best professors at Duke.

Dan Ariely's Coursera class "A Beginner's Guide to Irrational Behavior" will be kicking off next week. I'll be there, anyone else taking it?


I was in two minds because I'm already enrolled in one and plan to start on another in a week. Never knew Prof. Dan was that famous :) I might take it now. Anyhow, I'll be there at the Healthcare innovation course that starts mid April.

Cheers

[edit]: Read more about the man and the course. Will be there.

Congrats to all the admits and what a change of events--so much for no phone call! Love to see Fuqua making enhancements mid admissions season. For the admits, I definitely recommend going to BDW as its a great way to meet future classmates before school starts as well as to give you a sense of the team culture that makes Fuqua unique. Also get set-up on the Facebook to go to local events with other future students in your area. Excited to meet some Round 2ers. On a side note, I'm gunning for highwayre.

I think the next enhancement Fuqua needs is letting waitlisters attend BDW. :)

Yes, I got an early morning call from Adcom saying that sorry since we waitlisted you on Friday, no one in the admission office has been able to sleep at night....I got excited, but then later realized that it was time to wake up and go to work. :)

Doesn't seem like any movement today. I also heard from a current student that they were pretty sure all calls went out on Friday. I'll only officially accept it at 5pm. (but i've pretty much known since Friday that I'm still WLed)

You should send an update that says "Everyone on GC thinks I'm awesome. You know you think so too" :)

If there were anywhere this would have a chance of working, it'd be Duke! ;-)
