So the confirmation for the interview is throwing me off a bit..

"Attire for interviews and activities is business casual"

0.o

So... no suit?

Anyone who's interviewed already in Durham able to shed some light on what's appropriate to wear?

Thanks

Read back through the R1 and R2 interview debriefs (easiest way to do that is to search for interview within this thread). You'll find that many people asked the same question.

Generally speaking, most people still end up going with a suit just because its an interview. If you show up in business casual you won't be dinged per se by the interviewer, but its more of a mental issue -- are you okay being in business casual in a room of suits? To play it safe, wear a suit. If you feel over dressed, take off the jacket.

Does anyone has any idea if R3 interview invite gives you a better chance of being admitted? I mean I've heard some people say that it is hard to get invited in R3 but if you are invited that means they basically want you they just have to confirm that you will fit. I personally dont buy it but wanted to check whether anyone has any info.

If you get invited in any round that means they like you and want to see if you fit. It just may be harder to get the initial invite in R3 as they might invite fewer people

Hey guys--question for other matriculating students at Duke. Has anyone received their financial aid package yet? The FAQ's say to wait around a month and its been over a month since I submitted my FAFSA. I know it's rolling. Domestic student here btw.

I emailed them last week and they said they sent the information in the beginning of April. I checked my spam folder and couldn't find anything. Going to contact them again tomorrow over the phone. I know that the Financial Aid office is updating some part of the website (I think the sequester is affecting student borrowing rates which has to be updated in ACES) but I don't have my DukeID yet (does anyone?) so I can't check using that method.

As a comfort, or discomfort. I didn't get my financial aid stuff until June/July. I remember I was traveling abroad, had to re-format the signature forms, since the country I was in didn't have "letter" size paper, and express mail it to school. Everything ended up okay, but it was a pain.

No idea. As far as I know, we aren't officially in any Duke system since all we have paid are deposits.

Just had my award letter emailed to me. You can email finaid-info@fuqua.duke.edu if you have questions about yours. For what it's worth, I applied for FAFSA at the beginning of January.

What exactly is an award letter? Free money or just FAFSA money at a high % apr?

Admitted students website also mentions mid-May [in the immunization section]
Quote:
While you will not receive your NetID to be able to input these forms and information online until mid-May; we highly encourage you begin the process of completing these forms now and then upload them online in mid-May directly following being issued your NetID.

For those interested in consulting. McKinsey is offering a scholarship, but more importantly mentorship with McKinsey.

Had my interview yesterday. It was with a current 2nd year student. Very conversational. It was supposed to last 30-45 minutes but in the end we ended up talking for almost an hour. No surprise questions but a lot of questions regarding my teamwork and leadership experience.

Basically I have very good feeling, but on previous two interviews I had bad feeling and ended up admitted so I will wait before any celebrations. :D

Not that much activity in R3. Does anyone knows whether Fuqua is releasing all decision on 10th of May or we could expect to hear from them on rolling basis?

Per last round, you may hear a day or 2 early, don't expect anything before that. GL!
