To all my fellow Fuqua R1 accepted students - do we need to submit either of the forms received in the admission's email before the 27th? Assuming one is still undecided about Fuqua?

Thanks. I think it has to be suggested to the school that a google+ group be opened too. The privacy of facebook groups suck. why should my friends be able to see which groups I have joined? I just dont see the logic behind such a setting. Thanks to this feature some of us would not be able to joint the group since we dont want everybody to know about this venture yet.

Denied, unfortunately. Can anyone please tell me whether the decision is for both MBA and MEM? I had applied for the dual degree and thus I wish to know.

I'd gladly take an acceptance and no call, rather than a waitlist. Maybe your interviewer got sidetracked by life. These things happen. I got into seven medical schools a few years ago. I got a phone call from precisely zero of them. I was thrilled with every one of them. We're all different though Well good point! It's probably a matter of expectations. I had always heard about everyone getting 'the call' so in my mind that became the norm. Definitely appreciative to get an acceptance though, so I don't mean to sound picky.

I wasn't thinking and 'accepted' the admittance offer online pretty much right away assuming I had to do that to receive all of the admit info. In reality, where I go (I have submitted to 4 other schools I have yet to hear from) will be largely based on merit scholarship/aid. Do you think my accepting right away will negatively affect me? If I were an admissions person I might see this and say, this person is coming, why provide the $$? VP Status: Yale SOM!

I think that form just takes your contact info, right? _________________ aerien Note: I do not complete individual profile reviews.

If I'm going to pay someone$200k, I want to know that it's appreciated. Being just another goat in the herd when other farmers are rolling out the red carpet for me isn't super appealing.

Now, I love Duke. It's been a long process for me to get to this point with Fuqua and I am really appreciative of my offer. Relatively speaking though, when my phone is ringing off the hook with various Ross students calling and I have hand-written holiday cards from Yale in my mailbox, the lack of contact from Duke becomes very evident. I understand that Duke is student-led, and if students want to do the calling that's great -- but they should do it efficiently knowing that other schools have this part of the process down to a science, and at the end of the day, I as the customer can still choose to take my business elsewhere. Extending an offer doesn't close the deal.

I completely agree. I think sometimes the Fuqua AdCom leadership is too complacent with the status quo, and ride on the reputation of the school get applications and the strength of the student body to interact with perspectives online. I think we would have much better yield, if we have more personal touch. It is ashame that we don’t present a good first impression. Think of AdCom as HR, a bit out of touch and not a good reflection of the actual experience. The good thing is that this is the last time you will have to deal with the AdCom, and the experience as a student is much different (in a good way).
