30 isn't too old. The average incoming class' age is 28, so there are plenty of people in their 30s to offset those the consultants/IBankers with 2-3 year experience, and the 4-5 year industry people. There were a few over 40 in my section. The career path and the job opportunity maybe slightly different for an older student than a younger one.

I hear ya - I'm 31 bc this is my second stint at grad school. Really worried that it will be an issue but hopefully I am being paranoid.


You were accepted at both Kelley and Kenan-Flagler. Just wondering why you're not going to either??

Kelley is a solid choice, but let's hope that we are introducing each other in Durham on Thursday.

Still waiting...the registration was supposed to be over by 9est so they would know by now who didn't show up. Maybe they are contacting the no shows before they call someone. I think if I don't get a call for the next 2 hours, it's over.

Unfortunately, even if there are a few no-shows, those spots don't always get filled...that's how classes end up with strange numbers like 422.

They will change tomorrow or Monday. No more spots will be filled! It's over for us.

Good Luck all in the reapplication or at other schools. We tried our best, but there was just little movement this year; Duke is getting popular every year and yield was high this year.

As for me, I will be reapplying in ED and hoping for a better outcome. Failure is not an option.

Have you guys received an official email or indication from Fuqua? I know it's nearly a 0% chance, but just wanted to let them formally tell me so.

Good Luck at Kelley...It's an equally good school. While I am disappointed for going 0/7 this year, I think every thing happens for a reason.

I ended up taking the full ride and monthly stipend from Madison. I just couldn't wait another year. Good luck to everyone who's reapplying.!
