Retaking GMATs -

I'm not retaking my GMAT... not sure the wisdom of that decision. I'm within the 80% percentile range that Duke posted in the FAQs part addressing re-taking and accepting updated GMAT scores (albeit on the lower end of that range...)

I spent a lot of time studying for them last fall (and then got a little screwed by circumstances), so, I'm loathe to start hitting those books again for such a short concentrated period (ie, really only have 5 weeks to get back up to speed and in prime testing shape) and who knows if that will impact their decision...

but, like I said, not sure as to the wisdom of that - thoughts/viewpoints are appreciated


I feel the same way. And I think some recent community involvement or professional accomplishment would be more meaningful as an update. It did mention add'l recommendation letter which I am thinking about to go that route.


Also agreed. My score certainly didn't blow anyone away, but it was within the range I consistently pre-tested at after taking a formal study course. Four rushed weeks might eke out 10-30 pt increase, but if I was an AdCom, that wouldn't move the needle very much.

I think we should get a WL headcount by the end of the week. They will start reviewing apps early May.

I’m hoping we see some movement on 5/10, I'm thinking it’ll be my last day on the waitlist. Once again, we'll see(I said the same thing about R2).

I have got a strong feeling that there will be a major movement on 5/10. Duke is probably the only school who openly say that its WL is selective and you still have a great shot at acceptance. Since lot of people on this forum have already said no, they need to be replaced by us "hungry" WLers. Let's hope for the best.

Waiting for 31 more days will be pretty tough though.

If someone sends a recommendation on your behalf, how do you find out if the school received it? Do you get a confirmation email?

My third recommender got a confirmation email from Fuqua that the letter was added to my file. It was identical to the one I got a few days later when I submitted the remainder of my update personally.

Did your recommender used the same form Fuqua is sends recommenders ? or he just wrote something and emailed?

They just sent a PDF to the waitlist email address with a short intro.

Did you use an alum/current student or just a random person? I am wondering if an alum who barely knows you can provide a stronger rec than your supervisor

An alum who barely knows you cannot provide a better rec than your supervisors who interacts with you every day. Examples of your work and an understanding of why you'd be great at Duke far exceed the name of an alum on a piece of paper.

About 2 weeks left until the next decision day! Anyone withdraw, or is everyone still actively waiting?

I'll be in it for the long haul. I know I'm not the only one wondering what your plans are though. Holding out till 5/10? Later?

Getting nervous! I'm still flabbergasted that they don't notify people on the waitlist after they've received Round 2 deposits (which are due 4/30)... but, I guess that allows the adcom to have the information of who is in the class when evaluating waitlisted and Round 3 candidates.

I visited Ithaca again, and honestly... it won me over. I'm pretty conflicted at the moment. I will definitely not be on later than 5/10.
