What about waiting until R3 ?

Still deciding, mid-may seems like a bit late to get everything together for a move. Still not sure.

highwyre: I got a feeling that all these GCers will go petition for your admit during the orientation and you will have to fly to Durham within 12 hours. Luckily for you Cornell's orientation is 4 days later.

How can I find out about scholarship? Is it literally going to take 2 weeks?

+1. Any R1 admits with scholarship care to share their experience whether it took the whole 2 weeks before we hear anything about scholarship?

I received a scholarship phone call from an ad-com member 3-4 days after getting accepted. She told me the amount, and it was later confirmed in a paper inside the welcome package sent to everyone.

I was a R1 admit. Found out that I was successful when the website was updated (kudos to the admission staff for changing this for R2!). 3-4 days later, received a call from Megan congratulating me and telling me I'd been awarded a scholarship!

Not sure how they're doing it in R2, but I'd guess you'd get a 2nd phone call with that info within 2 weeks from last Friday.

Anyone know when login credentials are coming for the admitted student website? I think I was told on the phone call but totally blacked out for like 90% of that convo! I'm just overly excited about getting accepted and want more fuqua material!


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


Which interview system? I just have the application login. For my interview (by skype) I scheduled the dates directly by email with my interviewer...

Your email id and your password from the application login should work

In an online chat in 2007, Liz mentioned about a third of the class got merit scholarships. I'd be curious if anyone has more up to date info on this.

Well, according the current school profile page on Businessweek, 88% of students receive financial aid.

I suspect that number includes people who only got loans. Found a more recent chat in 2011 where Liz said the same thing - "Each year about a third of the incoming class receives some type of merit-based scholarship, but it is competitive."

Fuqua traditionally has been very stingy with scholarships. Partly because we are such a young school, and have one of the smallest endowment among the elite schools. Not only is the % of people with scholarship less than others, the amount of scholarship is smaller as well. However, I think this may be changing. I know Dean Boulding is really pushing alumni giving and general fundraising. A big part of the push is to grow the scholarship pot. Albeit, I don't know which class this will affect.

Got my admit packet today... suffice to say the increased scholarship pot didn't impact me (read: no money here). Without significant scholarship aid, I will be withdrawing within the next few days. Good luck, everyone; have a great time in Durham!
