I am an international candidate and have been contacted by my fuqua buddy over email. Still no call from the adcom about any scholarship. Any idea whether the adcom will still be calling for $$ this week or is it the end of my dream to get any dollars?

PS: Not disappointed at all. I would love to be a Dukie, whether I am paid for it or not :)

Hi all,

Not sure if anyone can help me, but I'm looking at funding options. I'm from South Africa. I have a co-signer, but they're Canadian, not American. Do you know of any US banks that would give loans with Canadian co-signers?

Thanks

i don't think you need a co-signer for fuqua loan.

Hi Travisz,

Thanks for the quick response. I'm looking to find another loan option that will give me a lower interest rate with a Canadian co-signer. Don't know if that exists but you could save megabucks if it did.

Thanks

They're supposed to go out for 2 weeks from the result date -- don't lose hope until 5pm on the 22nd!

And phone call or not, any result is probably included in the admit package too...

Hi Asimov, how was your experience with the career management center at Fuqua? I know that CMC and admissions are not correlated, but the callousness of adcom make me doubt the entire Fuqua administration.

Overall, I think the CMC does a good job with the resources it has. However, it’s difficult to make a super insightful judgment, since I do not have experience with other school’s CMC.

CMC’s job is to get the companies to come on campus to recruit. It is your job to convert that opportunity into a job. I think Fuqua’s CMC does a decent job in getting companies to come on campus with factors within its control. If I were to change CMC, I would try to bring a more diverse set of companies on campus (industry, location, function), and try to get more companies that hire international students. Reading the student feedbacks from the BW survey, Fuqua isn’t alone in dealing with these issues.

Any reports of scholarship call by international candidates? I am not sure how long it would take to get the admission package delivered in India.

Also, I messaged my interviewer (2y student) on the day the results were out, but I haven't received any congratulatory call/note from him. Did all the accepted candidates hear from their interviewer?

Folks who received $$$ - did only the adcom call you and not your interviewer?

I heard today from ad com about $$$ (it was very generous; I was so surprised!!). Haven't heard from my interviewer, but got the email about Fuqua mentor and will connect with them soon. The ad com person also told me I'd be connected with an alum shortly.

Does anyone know what % of admits get merit $$? I'm not sure if this is something published or that the admissions office has stated in interviews; I haven't sees anything that I can recall.

no but i just got an e-mail yesterday that said everything in my application had been checked for completion and it has been moved to the evaluation stage.

But actually isn't Duke releasing all interview invites on Feb 7 this year? I believe someone had told me that earlier in this thread.

Duke notifies everyone of interview invites on one day. You will find out on 07-Feb. That will be the date all invites get sent out.

For anyone who received scholarship money in the past few days, have you received the follow up email? The admissions person said I should receive a follow up email two days ago outlining the details of my scholarship but I have not received anything yet.
