Aww, I just noticed Duke has a home game sat afternoon... but they're playing it in Jersey, boooo. Ah well, atleast parking will be a bit better...


Doesn't that mean it's an away game? :P Nevertheless, hope your interview went well today!


lol, would make sense, but no. Technically a home game, but played on neutral territory

My interview went well, I feel like I could have answered a few questions a bit better, but I had a great connection with my interviewer. I can't wait until decision day!

I must give credit to Duke for running a well organized weekend. I had my interview today and also felt like it went ok but I could have answered some questions slightly better, but I'm not going to second guess myself. Now the MONTH long wait begins!!!!

Also it was very nice to meet some of you guys there. Very friendly prospectives crowd, the Fuqua students are top notch.

I, too, think the interview pairing was fantastic. My interviewer felt like the same person as me, just from a different country and a few years older. I don't know if adcom did this intentionally, or if I indeed was lucky. I've been somewhat shocked at how much I've come to like Fuqua in general. I expected to like it, but not as much as say Tuck or Tepper, and here it was launching itself to the top of my list. :lol: Prospectives seemed like a fantastic bunch of people, too, would love to be classmates, sectionmates, teammates, yadda yadda :P

I agree. A month ago, Tuck was by far my number one choice... But Fuqua convinced me. My wife and I would absolutely love it there, and it is now far and away my first choice. Also, I have an odd background, and somehow Fuqua was able to match me with someone who has lived is all of the same cities I have, and has worked for competitors of companies I've worked for. Other schools have had a very tough time matching me with someone. Good luck everyone, if I get in, there is zero question in my mind, I'll be matriculating.

I had my interview on Saturday here in Singapore with an alum. He seemed very unconvinced as to why I need an mba. I tried to reason and he seemed to buy it. But I thought I could have answered the why fuqua question much better. I focused on the teamwork aspect at fuqua but the interviewer had the "stop boring me" expression on.

Nothing to do now except hope for the best I guess.

Btw: are results out exactly on the 8th of jan or can we expect the results to come in BY the 8th. Anyone?

From what I've seen, all of Fuqua's results come out the day of and not before. There was no trickling of invites/acceptances/waitlists prior to the announcement dates.

The only time that decisions are rendered on a flexible basis would be after the Rd. 3 Acceptance Decision date. If you are still/put on the WL then, there is the possibility of movement anytime from then until orientation.

I am surprised about the team fuqua thing. That's what Duke touts as what makes it unique and why I presume most of us are interested.

I also completed my interview this past week and had a great time at Fuqua! Everyone I met was really friendly, down-to-earth, and seemed to fully embrace the spirit of Team Fuqua that people talk about.

My interview was also pretty standard -- why MBA, why Fuqua, tell me about a leadership experience, etc. No questions you cannot already find on sites like this forum.

Good luck everyone!

Results are out on the day of January 8th --- exactly 4 weeks from today! I think from last year's thread everyone got a status update email and you had to log-in to check what the letter said (accept, waitlist, ding). After that, if you were accepted, calls started coming in from adcom, your Fuqua Buddy, etc.

I know I am obsessing even more. But last year's interview invite rate was 55% and selectivity was 27%. Even if we were to assume that around 20 of this 55 interviewed inte open season, it shouldn't affect the statistical spread. Therefore can we assume that those interviewed now have a 50-50 chance of being accepted?

A friend of mine overheard a 2nd year saying that some of the open interview candidates are less competitive than the invited candidates, so maybe the chances of acceptance are slightly better than 50%..

That would make sense. Man I wish decision day was a bit closer, the wait is going to be excruciating

Hey, even applicants Not Invited for R1 interview would get a status update on Jan 8, right? What is to be done in a scenario where it is waitlist without interview. Just wait for Feb 7, R2 invitation date or contact adcom??

Check out my previous post for WL and general status update info:

You can also check out last year's Fuqua WL thread for some information on timing (mainly for R2 applicants though):

Some of the people that decided to do the open interview may have been uncertain whether they would receive an invite based on their current credentials. I heard this in one of the information sessions. Plus, I was one of those people :) I had a below average GMAT score even though I felt the rest of my application was strong, but I didn't want to take the chance. I was fortunate enough to be accepted, but I can definitely see quite a few people out of the open interview slot that may have felt the same.

Ever since some schools have started releasing decisions it's like I've become a decision junkie and I need to find a decision fix. Yesterday I was trolling the Booth page, I didn't even consider applying to Booth! I have no clue how I will handle waiting three more weeks for Duke! Granted the holidays will definitely help, but it seems so far away! Ha, so sad.

Ha, agreed. I should have had a nice fix today, but Cornell waited until the last minute to invite me for an interview, so I wont find out for a few weeks. I can't wait to find out for Duke! It looks like our early Jan will be like everyone else's mid december.

Ha! I have been following everyone's plight on the Cornell page as well since I applied Rnd 2 and want to see what I'm in for. Congrats on the interview though, saw some dings went out today, so better late than never I guess!

I've already paid my deposit to Duke and I still troll other pages on admission days...the decision anxiety still haunts me!

I totally understand where you guys are coming from! The way I staggered my applications, Duke will be my first result on 1/8. While I'm happy for all of my GMAT Club brethren who have gotten in already (including at Duke), I'm certainly a little jealous! :)
