Hi, I don't know if this was answered earlier. I am an admitted student through EA, and had received my confirmation after payment of $75 for credential verification by Rev Vera around 20th of November. I haven't received any updates from Re Vera about the progress about my verification as yet :? Has any of the other accepted candidates on this forum received a confirmation mail from Fuqua's Office of Admissions letting them know that the Verification Process has been completed?


I was an EA admit last year. I paid the $75 background check fee immediately after getting accepted, and it took Re Vera over three months to finish the process.


Interesting. I had to do a Re Vera background check for a job and it only took 2 or 3 weeks, maybe 1 month max. It could be that this was "rushed" somehow because they had a set starting date for me, or perhaps the company only checked a few things and bschools check more in-depth ... not sure.

What time is the app due tomorrow?

For R1, it was midnight of the date listed on the site, though I believe neither the website nor the application list the time explicitly. (There are definitely posts from me and some others asking this same question earlier on this thread :) )

Good luck to all you R2s!!

I wish Fuqua posted the time on its website. Its a crucial piece of information...especially during the mad dash to get your apps in

You'd think it would be one of those obvious tidbits of information they would include. @threestripes & other current students -- want to pass along our sentiment to admissions? :)

Hi,

Can somebody help me understand "Downlaodable" forms section. I don't understand a word of it.

Is it not relevant for Round 2?

And what's calculus course? Please explain, someone...........

Thanks
raghupara


The downloadable forms are simply informative documents...

Honor Code - You should review this...
Application Instructions - You 100% should review this to ensure you have completed all parts of the application correctly
Transcript Request Form - If you have already scanned a copy of your transcript, I wouldnt worry about this. I'm assuming it is needed to request an official transcript to be sent to fuqua once accepted
Sample One Page Resume - This is a sample one page resume...
Offical U.S. Transcript Example - This is an Offical U.S. Transcript Example...

Thank you so much highwyre237,
The transcript page was precisely what I was worried off -- I didn't kno any other school that gives info on official transcr during application!

By the way, I didn't have enough space to loop in my indivudal semester marksheets, despite the 3 part uplpad option. I just uploaded the consolidated marksheet, I hope that shouldn't be a problem!

Thank you,
Raghupara

R1s -- January has finally come. Good luck next week :) As we've seen before, no calls will go out before hand. Status update emails seem to be sent out either around noon ET or 3:30 pm ET and after, and if admitted, you'll then receive calls from your interviewer as well as your Fuqua Buddy. January 8th will certainly be a day of constant inbox refreshing!


Only admitted and WL people get emails updates or dings too?

there's no other way to say it...that's a pretty sad oversight for a top mba program.

All R1 results will be released via status update email -- admit, WL, and ding. We just have to wait for the email and hope the letter we want is there :)

Hi Does anybody know if we have to submit our resume in the Fuqua format with the profile summary then education then experience? I have mine laid out using the Stacy Blackman resume guide with no profile summary then work exp. going from latest to earliest and then education and hobbies?

Take this with a grain of salt as I've not been admitted, but I've been invited to interview both last year and this year, and I used my own resume format both times. I think as long as you convey your work history in an appropriate manner, you'll be fine. Good luck!

For the Essay 2 of Fuqua, generally how many words have R1/R2 applicants end up writing? I somehow had an impression of 500 words limit but just before submitting realized there is no such words constraint!

2 pg limit with 1.5 spacing and min 10 pnt font leaves possibility for over a 1000 words.

mines roughly 850 now.

I imagine they do this b/c its the only essay in reality

True, although really had a lot of fun writing my 25 things about me essay. I wish more schools would have essays like this.

Quick question: If your recos come in late but you app is in time. Will Fuqua still consider your app for the round you applied?

I think the overall consensus is that adcoms give a few days as buffer, but I would call adcom and ask anonymously
