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!


I do hope that's so. But you're right in saying that we shouldn't lose hope. After all, we've only just begun this marathon :)

Congrats to those who got invited to an interview! When you get over your excitement, please take the chance to update your status.

For those who didn't get an invite. It's not over. I've been on the board for the past 4 application seasons, and there are definitely people who do not get invited but end up matriculating at Fuqua. I think the chances are good it will happen this year, since application volume seems to be on a downward trajectory, and schools need to fill out the class.

Congrats to all those who received interviews and all the best to those who are still waiting. As asmiov pointed out no need to lose heart at this stage. Use the time to make your case stronger. All the best.

Congratulations to all those of you who received an interview invite from Fuqua. Good luck to those waiting!
Compared to the previous years, this time I have not seen many people updating this forumn on interview invites. Does this mean very few people applied in the EA round resulting in an overall drop or something else ?

Okay....just received an email......saying that one of the alums will contact me with more details within a week about the interview. I really doubt that all the interviews will be done by 16th Oct.

I just received a Skype invite recently. Told to coordinate directly with interviewer and complete by the 16th.

Was told to send over a copy of my résumé and that would be the only info my interviewer will have seen.

Out of curiosity, do we have to send the same resume that we submitted in the Duke app, or can we update (i mean add all those extracurriculars)

Hey, just got in touch with my interviewer. Sunday evening it is!
As for the CV, my opinion is 'avoid anything different'. I don't think extra-currics will make a difference so you can still go ahead an add it but I feel it's best to stick to what we uploaded since it's hardly been a while since Sept 19 and I doubt they will be expecting too many updates.

Yeah....that makes sense. Do you have a interview with an alum or over skype with a student?

Yeah...me too. I was expecting to get interviewed by an alum in person. I'm not too confident of the skype medium.
Best of luck to you too :)

This may go without saying, but I'd assume its safe to say Skype will be video interviews?

I'm actually a bit more comfortable with the 2nd year fellow interviewer because on-campus interviews are also with 2nd years. Means one less changing variable in the process.

I am getting the below error while trying to upload the resume. Is anyone else facing the same issue?

The Fuqua scheduling system has moved. Please select the site you are trying to access.
