I received it on the 26th; no attachment for me. Maybe your email program is including the banner as an attachment??

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.

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? :?: :?:

Hello fellow EA admits -

Just want to check in and see if anyone has received a merit scholarship along with their official acceptance letter.

Best of luck to everyone!

I don't think you need to visit them again. If you got the application fee reduction based on your visit when you first set up your online account, that means adcomm has verified and know about your visit. Furthermore, if you've clearly articulated 'Why Fuqua?' in your essay and/or interview with or without explicitly mentioning your visit - assuming your answer forms a logical link to your career goals - then it should be fine.

Hi Asimov, thank you very much for your great advice.
In fact, I am concern about my application due to my bad toefl scores(didn't reach 100). I will retake the test late this month but I am not sure if it is meaningful or helpful to this application...

Hey Everyone,

Does anyone know if applying to the HSM program lessens your chances of admittance?

interesting question. I was contemplating the same thing when I started my application.

My views:
No it does not.

Why?

I'm not 100% sure if HSM class composition is viewed agnostic of Duke's class profile (it is most probably not).
Even if I assume it is: the class will definitely be tough to get in and there will be a lot of people with stellar (healthcare) profiles who will be vying to get an admit - just because Duke's HSM is one of the best in healthcare business. But, not applying to HSM would raise eyebrows for sure. Because if your post MBA goal is something to do with healthcare, why would you not take up HSM? It will just sound as if you have not researched enough on Duke.

And why would anyone not want to take advantage of an awesome course, which is probably the best in the world. I'm sure it will add a new dimension to your thinking if you are planning to go in the healthcare industry post MBA. And if you are not going to be in the healthcare industry, HSM anyways does not make much sense for you.

makes sense?

Hey, I'm applying for the HSM as well, I actually asked the student interviewer that when I visited campus - she told me that if my goals and background suite the HSM program, absolutely not, its favorably viewed that I have the relevant background and can display that the degree ties in suitably with my future aspirations.

If I don't have a strong reason for pursuing it (btw Duke is less concerned about my past than, say, Wharton/Haas that have very good dual healthcare management programs but want you to have past relevant experience), such as a focused goal that is well articulated in your essays, then of course it will not be weighed favorably.

Hope that helps.

Just a heads up, Duke doesn't have an MPH program. You receive an HSM certificate along with the MBA, not a dual degree. HSM is more healthcare business not public health, although you certainly can find classes that cover this material or get an MPH at UNC.
