It actually depends on the font and margins you are using.

With moderate margins 2 pages is around 1200 words (10 point font; 1.5 spacing). I think 750-850 words should explain why duke (you can fit them in 2 pages with 12-13 font).

Saying that, I did use over 1000, because I added a lame story that ran too far into my essay. Kick myself for that now.


are you applying EA?


(if the ques is for me)
Yes. Application under review.
international candidate so haven't interviewed yet. Waiting for 9th (interview) decisions.

I used the full two pages. It certainly felt long after having to keep essays at 500 words max for the other schools, but I feel like I had even more I wanted to cover but couldn't. I would agree that the essay should be close to two pages as much shorter would mean that you don't have a lot of compelling reasons for wanting to go to Duke/get an MBA.

I'm so disappointed. My application status was showing complete so far, and only today it got update to incomplete - they haven't received my test scores & transcripts, which I have definitely submitted.

I was eagerly waiting for an interview invite and I get this. I had even written this query earlier to the school, asking if they have received all the materials, but I had not got back any reply. Any suggestions on what should I do?

I know it is disappointing.


I refreshed my page like 10 times.........Although, they claim to still have not received my GMAT/ transcripts.......but who cares....because for now I'm INVITED!!
I guess they were playing with me.....or maybe my mind was!

I did mail them immediately and now am repenting for my impatience. Would have to apologize or take back my words, lest they cancel my invite :)

Congrats to all other invitees. And to others.....keep faith...miracles do happen (just like in my case )

I just got a mail from admissions.

No interview call.

But, when I checked the application portal, it is showing my application status as incomplete


Transcripts: Not Received

Test Scores: Not Received

I had uploaded my transcripts and did receive the mail from GMAC confirming the receipt of the score on 12-September

Some one please let me know if there is something I can do.

Thanks,

Last year, I think applicants who were not interviewed in the EA round or those were interviewed and not accepted in EA, were waitlisted.
I think final decisions for this year's EA round will be available on Oct 30.
One should not lose hope unless someone has outrightly been rejected today.
Best of luck!
