Hi all, had a question. I haven't received an email update, and my online "Submission status" is still just "Submitted".
The East Coast day is over. Should I write them an email, or call them tomorrow morning to check? I had met R1 deadline.

Would appreciate the advice.

Hey Jontron, yes both recommenders submitted a day before the deadline, and I received the confirmation email for meeting Round 1.
My other friend was hypothesizing that during my campus visit before Round 1, they had conducted an "interview" with a 2nd year student, and that that might be counting that as the formal replacement for the actual interview. Is that the case?

Sounds odd as I wasn't suited or booted thinking it was an informal interview.

It sounds like that "interview" was your actual one. If you still have the contact information of that 2nd year student, you can email them and see if they submitted an interview report for your conversation. If they did, that is probably the answer to your mystery since all on-campus interviews (during open period and during normal rounds) are conducted by second-year students.

If the "interview" took place in one of the small rooms in or a floor above the Admissions Lounge, then that is your actual interview.

Big win tonight against Ohio State! Let's go Duke!

ThreeStripes! I need to give you a shoutout and thank you! I was a 2012 applicant and followed/researched your Waitlist thread like a hawk when I was placed on the waitlist for the Class of 2014. Your story and lesson of how to not to give up when you KNOW that Duke was the place for you really resonated with me. I was on the waitlist until summer, applied again EA this year and got in..just like you. Your story was my story man! Your posts are always helpful and positive, a great representation of Team Fuqua in action. We definitely have to meet up during BDW this year!

Congratulations to all the invitees! I know the 25 random things wasn't an easy essay (though I'm going to say I had fun with it)

But seriously it's nice to see that Duke is inviting the guys with the lower Gmat scores like 620 and 640. Unlike Gmat loving Ross which seemed to have invited only the 700 and up crowd.

I completely agree with you, canadianchamp! The 25 things was hard, but looking back (nostalgically? perhaps not...) I can say it was the essay I had the most "fun" writing.

Agreed. Duke really got a sense of my personality and values through this essay. I cant believe a school invited me after some of the random stuff I put in there, lol. Either way, if they invited me after reading my list, it confirms that Fuqua's a great fit for me.
