Hi,

I got wait-listed without interview. Does Fuqua ask you for any essays while wait-listed or do they give you any opportunity to actively influence your wait-list status?

Brief profile:
International student - Indian
GMAT - 740
Undergrad - Engineering.Different system of gradation but translates to around 3.33
W.E. - 4 years in Technology (programmer) and Consulting (tech)


read the FAQ provided by the adcom. Fuqua welcomes additional information so by all means try to get additional letter of recs/essays to bolster your chances :-D

Curious quick fact checking:

When someone gets decision notification from Fuqua, there are two possibilities, right? - "Invited to interview" or "Not Invited to interview".

Are you guys calling "Not invited to interview" as "Waitlisted"?

No, the past few posts refer to the decision notification process once you are on the waitlist.

If you're waiting for an invite, then on the invite day your status will be updated to invited or not invited.

See my previous post for more detailed info:

Thanks Aerien.


However,

1) The link you pasted here just leads me to a page. Not sure which "detailed info" you are referring to.
2) It's still not clear about the waitlist status. What does your decision status say on the day of decision notification when you are waitlisted without interview?
AFAIK, I know there are only 2 types of notification status- Invited and Not Invited. AFAIK, Fuqua does not use explicit words like "Waitlisted".

My question was, how would I know if I were "waitlisted without interview"?

on interview notification date, you will only get to know whether you are invited for an interview or not.
on decision notification date you will get to know whether you are admitted, dinged or waitlisted. you can be waitlisted or dinged either with or without an interview, but you can be admitted only with an interview.

Clears the doubts?

Link updated in the previous post -- permalinks direct you to where the post is on a page in the thread; they do not link you to a new page with the one specific post on it.

I hope jumsumtak answered your question concisely enough :)

My email puts graphics as attachments; that's probably what's happening to you too, punters. There's definitely not an attachment to that email. Good catch, krudget!

Big congrats to all those who were accepted last week! Hope to see y'all at BDW in February!

I am also so sorry to see so many familiar names get waitlisted or rejected. I wish you all the best, and I hope that you ultimately get into your #1 or #2 school.

27M re-applicant from Canada
730 (Q48, V42) GMAT
3.0 engineering GPA that made applications very difficult
4.5 experience in marketing (5.5 at matriculation)

Want to say congrats to all the admits!

And wanted to say good luck to everyone who didn't get the news they wanted today. Last year, when I got WL'ed in R2 and subsequently dinged things seemed pretty grim. I took a lot of inspiration from threestripes epic thread to help me through the journey. I hope good news is on the way soon!


Thanks for the shout out! Hope to see you at BDW in February.

Hey all,
First, big congrats to admits!! It's always nice to hear good news~~
I applied to R1 already. And just want to learn your advice if anything I can to during the waiting period.
I learned that someone would keep update resume to the school. I recently got a new job which fitted to my career goal, but I only started my work for 2 months. Should I put it in the resume?
Thank you for all your help in advance!!

Hi marystars, good luck on your application. I know it's always difficult to seat back and wait. You have to have faith in your application. I would not recommend contacting AdCom during this period. From a logistics stand point, the AdCom does not have that much bandwidth to field all the updates. I would only update AdCom with significant changes (a promotion, classes that address your academic weakness) if you were waitlisted. Your job situation would be a good update, but I would wait until you have some more experience (maybe after R2 decision in the Spring) under your belt to update them (if waitlisted).

guys, I did an official visit to Fuqua last year however decided not to apply to mba programs until this year. I applied in R1 and was wondering whether I should schedule another visit? would it be wise to set up a meeting with someone from the adcomm so they can put a face to an app or should I be ok with just my previous visit?

Hi, does anyone know when will invitations start going out?
The website says that by November 28th. Does that mean that all invitations will be sent on that day only? :?: :?:
