Well, I just emailed adcom to let them know that I'm withdrawing and matriculating at Kellogg instead. I realize that I'm only one person, but hopefully a slot has just now opened up.

I was on the WL at Kellogg for nearly 5 months before being admitted (R1 applicant, admitted 5/7), so don't lose hope for the Fuqua list!

I was referring to Zomba in my previous post. I think whoever gets his spot should cover half of his Duke deposit - just saying!

Would you mind sharing your WL strategy?

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!


Present :) Also, a big thank you and congratulations to Zomba!

My notification letter at Kellogg mentioned that we should only call after a certain date. On that day, I called my WL manager (Michael G) and he was out of the office. I called again a week later and he said that there wasn't anything specific that they wanted/expected me to do to improve my application. I sent Kellogg a letter (via attachment) simply updating them on a few achievements at work and reaffirmed my strong interest in the program. After being re-waitlisted at the R2 notification date, I simply sent in a short note saying the I was very interested in Kellogg. That was it from me.

As for my Booth strategy, I accepted a place on the WL via their portal, sent a letter telling them that Booth was my #1 choice and that I would attend if admitted, and I also updated a video. Obviously didn't work for me.

Hope that helps.

Update: I realize this pertains to programs other than Fuqua, but I thought it might be useful for Fuqua WLers, as well.

i know, i know, I have a blue school next to my name right now...


I have not withdrawn, and if I get accepted before my lease goes through, or my next deposit date, I'll have something to think about :stab

Count me in as well. I've been on the WL since EA too. What is that, like 203 days of suffering? C'mon Duke, end it already (in a good way)!

Quite a bit of activity on Booth WL today, so let's hope that few of Fuqua admits drop out this week.

Anything for my fellow gmatclubbers. I got a feeling we will get to see some activity tomorrow. (right before the memorial weekend) - just a random guess.
