No. You can be let go and never get an invite.

I guess that's encouraging. Do you think that those of us who got invited to interview in April have a legit chance to get accepted on the R3 decision date, or are they just deciding whether they want to put us on the summer WL? I'm sorry if this is a dumb question; I am a "non-traditional" candidate and have no idea how this works.


I don't think they would spend their time speaking to you for an interview if you didn't have a legit chance. R3 is always tough but I know people on this forum that made it to the C/O 2014 and were in a similar situation as you. Good luck!

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.


hell, I've been on the WL since 1/9.. what's another month?

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.


I've heard nothing but amazing things about Johnson. Still, I'm hoping that some of us old-timers on the WL can share that celebratory beer in Durham come August. :) Either way, you've got great options in front of you.


Hey, you do too! You could be the next Mark Cuban!

Regardless of what happens in the next few weeks, we'll both be enjoying beers with classmates. Maybe in durham, maybe in ithaca and bloomington? We both deserve a celebratory beer one way or another.

Mr. Yale sneaks in here and dashes the hopes and optimism of 50 waitlisted applicants with a "one-liner". OUCH! :)


Just giving my own experiences ahead of tomorrow's posts "Omgz I haven't heard anything yet!! Did they take my name off the list and not tell me?!" :P


I don't care what you say, what do you know!(outside of having actual first-hand experience) :x

Just finished composing the email I will send to my family/friends/recommenders tomorrow after I get in; I have gone through 6 admission notifications so far with no luck, but this one feels very different.


Well good luck, I'm rooting for you.

Also... if you don't find out tomorrow... look at aerien, from a Duke WL, to about 75 admits... And threestripes, from Duke WL to EA admit a few years back. Fuqua's summer WL isn't where people go to rot, it fosters growth and excellence in Gmatclub's best and brightest.








but I know we'd all rather get in tomorrow :-D

Officially heading to Johnson.

Definitely wish you the best. Was certainly hoping to see you at Duke in the autumn and us both get good news. Best wishes for you at Johnson.

Some anecdotes about med school waitlists:

1) My lady just graduated last weekend with her MD and was waitlisted everywhere before acceptance.

2) I had moved into a new city for med school, before I got the call that I was in elsewhere, literally amidst unpacking, and had to move (again...and break a lease) to the new city at the drop of a hat. I do not regret it one bit.

3) One of my friends got into Vandy off of the waitlist literally the day before the white coat ceremony. Nashville real estate is terrible, so she had to live in a hotel for the first two months of med school.

So anyway, just a few tidbits (hopefully encouraging) about the craziness of summer waitlist movement.

Thanks for the special mention. I am sorry that you were forced to make this decision. Johnson is a great school, and by all means start preparing for your move to Ithaca. However, I would recommend that you not withdraw your application anyway. Wait for the final decision so that you would never have to wonder if you would have been accepted had you waited. Good luck! :)

I got some bad news. A current student who is part of the Duke MBA 2015 FB group told me that there were 4-5 additions to the groups yesterday, so seems like Duke admitted few people off the waitlist. Can anyone confirm if that's true?


I wouldn't worry: you aren't added to the FB group upon admission, it is up to the individual to request membership. I was a R2 admit and only was added to the group in May. If people are joining the group now, it is possible/likely that they are R2/R3 admits just hoping to connect with classmates before the term.

So guys, my apartment deposit went through, and I have paid my second deposit to Johnson... I am officially (this time I promise) out of the WL game. Good luck all! I REALLY hope there is some sort of movement soon.


highwyre, this is a sad day indeed, but on the brighter side, you will be an ivy-league graduate in 2 years. Good Luck at Johnson, and hopefully we will run into you at some of the bschools related activities or recruiting events.

Don't leave gmatclub, though.

Honestly, all this zero movement stuff sounds like nonsense to me (and clearly there are people reporting admits to disprove it)...Duke is a great school, one that I can't get personally seem to get into, but its not like Stanford, which I'm sure has even reported some movement. I find it hard to believe that every school in the top ten has wait list movement and many of them have movement that is actually quite considerable, but duke has virtually none...i mean do they shower you with 100 dollar bills, beluga caviar, and dom perignon or something at blue devil weekend?

My counselor reported this week that they had very little movement off the waitlist recently - this confirms what was reported by someone on the forum, however, it raises concerns as to why your counselor would say something different.

I was also told that this was the first year Duke had 2 deposit deadlines for Round 1 and 2 - usually Round 1 admits have until Round 2's deposit deadline to send their deposit as well. This year, Duke had an earlier deposit deadline for Round 1 admitted students. So, Duke probably had more deposits sent in from Round 1 admits than in prior years - which might explain the higher yield and little movement off the waitlist.

I'm hoping for an opening of the flood gates to be very soon!!


Also, if you look at last years thread, there was some movement in July as well, so it's not a lost cause yet.

One thing I noticed: last year the class strength was 442 as oppose to 450. Wondering if Duke intentionally decreased their class size or lost 8 students during orientation.

Just one crazy night at shooters during orientation IMO

Nope. Same reason behind why I'm unsure I would be able to go to Fuqua if admitted this summer. Super hard choice to make, but hopefully I'll be regret free come this winter when decisions come out.

Certainly, reapplicants will be expected show considerable growth and reflection in the next yr's app, but I would imagine that a summer waitlister as an R2 applicant is really close to in and an early action might have locked it down, but then again it's all speculation and nobody really knows...except maybe the guys in the admissions office at the school.

Just curious, given that you have an admit to UVa, what is the rationale behind going to a waitlist school in late summer?


Umm...not all programs are interchangeable in the eyes of prospective students.
