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.

Count me in as well. Get highwyre in ASAP, so I can get to the top of the waitlist class....:)

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! ;-)

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.


Hah! We could make this happen.....

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