Fellow admits (EA and RD1), the timelines say that we should have sent in our visa documents by March 8. I guess those documents include proof of funding right? So if you plan on using a loan for the funding, does it mean you should have applied and received a response on the loan before March 8? What is likely to happen if one misses the deadline?
This is a very logistic specific question. I am sure the school will be happy to answer the question for you.

For getting your I-20 issued, you need to just check an option on the Duke visa form that says you will use the loan for funding. You dont need to start the loan procedure for that, just need to mention in the form. I got this info from my Fuqua buddy. That said, it would be advisable to start the loan procurement process right away. You can always get your loan approved and then not use it if you happen to go to some other school.

I dont know if there is some form of non disclosure clause in the package because I see this is your 2nd time of asking this question and still no one is responding even though some have received it


Looks like people are busy networking with future classmates on other forum :lol:

hahahaha...at least you got your question answered. I am still waiting for my package though. After waiting for so long for a decision, I didnt expect to go through another round of waiting agony. It better comes with a scholarship offer :-D


Not sure whether we should still hope to see a schol letter in the package if we haven't been contacted yet by the adcom abot the scholarship.

I received my admit package and confirmed what I thought - no scholarship. Does Fuqua consider scholarships later in the season for R1 matriculants if there are leftovers, or am I out of luck if I didn't receive one already?

Just trying to see for all the scholarship recipients, what is the average amount you guys received? Are you guys funding your MBA with full loans or what?

ReVera sent me a form that I had to sign to authorize and initiate the process. This was after I submitted my deposit (I think).

Hmmm, I already paid my deposit for cornell, and they also use ReVera, I'm expecting them to kick off my check anytime. I wonder if I end up off the waitlist, and decide to go to fuqua, I'd have to go through the process a second time... That could get annoying for the parties involved. ahhwell, that would be a nice problem to have...

I think programs can choose from the variety of different checks that ReVera provides. Fuqua's was the $75 dollar one. I know that my recommenders and HR of companies were contacted. Not too sure about what else.

hmm my R1 deposit was cashed 2 weeks ago and I haven't been contacted yet. How long did the entire verification process take for you?

Minor correction: Fuqua sent me the forms so that I could initiate the process with ReVera.

Here is my timeline:

My deposit cleared on 11/15/2012
Fuqua sent me the forms to authorize the background check on 11/19/2012
I sent the forms back on 11/25/2012
ReVera completed their check by 11/27/2012
Office of Admissions confirmed that my background check was completed on 11/30/2012

I was surprised how fast everything took on their end. However, there are very few total admits across all programs that need to be processed in the middle of November. As the number of applicants and acceptances swell in Round 1 and Round 2, I would imagine that the turnaround time for the checks lengthens also.

Wow - I am an EA admit and I still haven't received my verification completion confirmation yet. I did ask ReVera that they hold off contacting my current employer until July, but I figured I'd at least receive an "all clear" with the exception of my current employer by now. I guess not...
