Also, a good friend who is an admissions fellow told me yesterday that Duke had a strong R2 yield this year, especially from domestic applicants and seems like the major movement, if any, will be for int'l applicants. I have higher hopes from Kellogg.


Maybe having admissions call accepted applicants for R2 did actually affect yield...thanks aerien! haha

I need an opinion from the experts: How my current student/alum recommendations are optimal while being on the WL? I haven't sent one so far, and wondering how many can I potentially send w/o negatively affecting my chances?

Just submitted my withdrawal of the WL. I got into 2 other top 10-15 programs that I was on the WL. It's time to move on. I gotta get a place and get ready to start balling on Wall Street.

Not sure yet. Either Darden or Johnson but leaning towards Darden. Ross is also still in play until Wednesday.

Thanks Jose. Seems like Ross admitted quite a few people from WL today; not sure, what Duke is waiting for? Probably trying to see how WL plays out at other schools before they pull the trigger.

Even Stanford is accepting GCers from the WL, and Duke hasn't called a single person. Ahh, it's so frustrating.

And why should anything happening at Stanford affect Duke's own process? Why didn't you apply to Stanford, then?

Relax. Rocket's just saying that Stanford's yield is generally higher than Duke's, so if Stanford is seeing some WL movement, Duke likely will too. Good luck to everyone still waiting!!

I think it could be that people are picking Duke over Stanford this year....just saying lol. Stanford's BBALL team has been pretty mediocre lately - it matters to some applicants.

Yep, that's why everyone applied to HBS, Harvard won the Ivy's this year... If it were Princeton everyone would be going there for an MSF instead.

very logical, highwyre. Cornell had a good run last year, so it explains the 20% increase in apps.

Any idea when they'll start calling waitlisted applicants? The deadline for deposits for Intl students was on the 15th so I wonder if they're waiting until after deadline for deposits for domestic applicants which is the 21st..

My guess is that we will hear from Duke around May 31st. Last year they called few people about 8-10 days after the deposit deadline.

Alright folks: Today is the final deposit deadline for R3 domestic applicants which means that starting tomorrow the adcom will know the final make up of the class. Based on the last year's forums, the adcom should be filling any open spots during the next couple of weeks and after that we will be at the mercy of current admits to drop out and open additional spots.

I think we should start a roll call and see who is currently active on the WL, and is trying to get in. I will put one together in a separate post.

Lastly, just to share some good news: I know one person who just dropped out of Duke and decided to go somewhere else, so we will have at least one spot to fight over.

Goodluck, Friends!
