Any R1 applicants receive any message thus far from Duke. Any changes in the online application portal. Mine just says application submitted. Hope applications submitted on deadline day also count....

Yes, submissions on the deadline day count towards that round, and yes, some people have already heard back from adcom saying their apps are under review: see this post for the email -- duke-fuqua-2013-calling-all-applicants-134412-380.html#p1136130

All you can do now is wait for that email or for adcom to let you know that something is missing from your file. It's only been 1 week since the deadline so no need to panic yet.

Waitlisted. I'll take it with the glass half full. Threestripes, RGupta, and Asimov, do you guys have any advice on what I can do to increase my chances?

Ding in EA; No idea what's wrong. Someone said maybe the short team career goal was not very realistic, but no absolutely. Others are not weakness:( Very Sad yesterday

I got Dinged too. Was too shocked and disappointed to come and update my status.

Really clueless on what to do. Maybe my age(24) was a big decisive factor. Need to start looking at some lower ranked schools now :(

Congrats to all the admits. I really wished to be a part of Team Fuqua. Sucks!!

i called duke adcom today to express my interest for the school (as a waitlister) and get some information the WL process and seek input on my profile. The adcom lady was very busy so she did not provide too much juicy information. However, she told me that WL decisions are typically made by May. this information is contradictory to what i have heard.

my main question is that: are the WL applicants measured against applicants of the next round and considered in equal footing? or are WL applicants only used as bench players to fill in spots?

True, while WL decisions are typically made by May, they still keep some people on through the summer to make sure any and all last-minute seats that open up are filled. If you're one of those lucky people, then you would hear your decision any time from May through August.

I have no clue about this since I'm not on the adcom though I think it's reasonable to guess that WL-ers are evaluated against everyone in the subsequent round, not just the waitlist.

hi aerien, thank you for your response. I thought many of us WLers would get admitted/dinged during deadlines of later rounds, instead of May? I am pretty confused now

hi all,

i just dug up an interview with Liz Riley Hargrove (if you are waitlisted and do not recognize this name, then doing more research on Fuqua is a necessary step to increaes your chances :lol: )regarding waitlist situation. See link below and search for waitlist.

You can be admitted with the R1, R2, or R3 decisions. R3 decisions come out in May. If you don't hear back by May and still choose to be on the waitlist, you could be waiting until August. Hope that clarifies things! :)

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

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?
