I have now seen you in 4 threads doubting your acceptance due to a lack of invites.

It's still early in the process, try not to worry so much yet!

Hey all,

Just curious what folks on here think about Duke's 22nd rank on Business Week's student survey rating. I've heard before that some students have complained about career services (surprising considering the strong career numbers and variety of on campus recruiters), but otherwise the students I've met seem to rave about their experience.

Any thoughts?

Hey Slider

Here are my 2 cents.

I talked to a recent graduate from Fuqua and while he had +ive inputs to share about the career management center (CMC), he also mentioned that the CMC had been restructured over the summer (2012) with each person within CMC being assigned certain domains/focus areas (like consulting, marketing and also industries like consumer goods, energy, etc) to facilitate the internship / job recruitment process.

So my guess is that while a majority of folks (60-70%) at Fuqua are happy with the CMC there are few who are not thrilled (which explains why its ranked 22nd as well as the restructuring process at CMC to turnaround that aspect).

Fuqua has also added 8 new full time staff members to the CMC this summer, bringing it to an army of 30. We are already seeing huge improvements because of the extra staff and new divisions.

Additionally, I've loved my experience and would say that most students feel the same. I've been happily surprised to get far more out of my two years than I had expected.

Expert's post
I'm a bit surprised at our #22 student satisfaction ranking. We can second guess that all we want here, the fact is that 21 other schools' students responded better than we did. Although career services may be an influencer of that rating, there are other areas as well. Frankly, I don't think CMC is the reason for the low ranking. Our placement rate is on par with other schools. If I were the Fuqua administration, it would be very concerned about this. Student satisfaction is a huge part of how strong our alumni network will be in the future. We have a strong student culture, but I think it may be slipping a bit in recent years. In talking with my co-workers from other elite schools, other schools take a more proactive stance to build a strong inclusive culture.

Hello all,
New to the forum, long time stalker. I really didnt have much to contribute before =)

I got my acceptance from Fuqua 15 days ago (EA applicant). The rankings imo are not so important. Although cliqued, I really feel that the school must appeal to you (what people refer to as fit). It must excite you to have the best experience.


Congratulations!!!!!!

Quick question - I have applied in Round 1. As per the website, interview invites would be sent out on 28th Nov. Also, all non-hub interviews will be carried out between 1-12 Dec. I am based out of New Delhi, which is a non-hub location.

Now I am scheduled to travel for work during 1-12 Dec. In the chance that I do get an invite and to avoid it clashing with my interview date, is it possible to know right now when the interviews would take place in New Delhi? This way I can plan my travel better right now.

Low GPA applicant with solid essays and work-ex.. extreme amounts of anxiousness. My research showed if any uni out there accepted low gpa+goodwork-ex+GMAt, that would be duke.. therefore if I get dinged without interview.. I will be sad indeed.

My expectations have increased after reading your comments. Btw, by what time would the interview notifications be rolled out on Wednesday. And how do we get notified? It will be after midnight in India, if its after 12:30 EST

All results are out by 5PM EST on 28th. Thats 3:30AM in India on the 29th. Emails are typically blasted out at once, but reading last year's boards, I understand the emails start trickling in a few hours earlier. You get an email plus you can check your application status online by logging in. At the moment it just says "congratulations on submitting your app" after 28th, it will also have an interview status if I am not mistaken that says either "invited" or "not invited".
