I just received an update from the Fuqua Office of Admissions; did anyone else?

The words "you still have a great shot at acceptance" pretty much injected me with a shot of hope :-D but I understand that there really wasn't that much to take away from the rest of the e-mail other than the usual sit tight and let us know if you have any updates for us.

Still, I really appreciated the e-mail. Looks like waitlisted Fuqua applicants will receive an update in line with the Round 2 decisions on March 18th. They said if there's no e-mail, then you're still waitlisted. Anyone know if they could send an e-mail but actually remove you off the WL and ding you right there and then?


Received the same email, and it had the same affect on me :-). Only 34 more days until the next decision date!



Ya even I got that.....

I'd be curious to know if those of us planning to send updates to Fuqua are sending multiple, smaller updates or a single, larger update. Anyone see a clear logic as to which would be a better choice? (Assuming we all know not to send 100 updates and become a nuisance :-D )

I've also been on the wait-list since EA. Going to send a significant update to Fuqua in a few days. *Fingers crossed*

I was wondering the same thing... and I decided since I don't have much to update, one would suffice. It wont be super long, under 2 pages for sure. I did have another rec sent earlier though... IDK, its a crap shoot.

I'm one of the students who was not Invited for interview ( and I fee like a bit of an outsider here :-D ), but like everybody else I am keen on still trying my level best this year before I get lost in oblivion as a re applicant next year.. Two things that I wanted to know
1. Is there a status that says Waitlisted in your application?
2. Were any of you waitlisted without an interview?
3. Have you heard of any applicants that were not invited for interviews but end up in Fuqua class eventually.

Anything from anybody here is most appreciated.

On decision day, your application portal will be updated with a link, that link will hold your decision (either waitlist, accepted or ding). There are cases where people are waitlisted without interviews, and later asked to interview. I do not know how common it is, but it does happen.

Good Luck!


Edit: 1 month until R2 decisions! I can't wait!

Congrats on making your decision, aerien! It's a shame that you won't be joining us at Fuqua, but I'm sure you made the right decision for yourself. Have a blast at Yale!

I've been following your decision and I must admit that I'm disappointed that you will not be a classmate at Duke. Yale is very lucky to have you! Congrats on the wildly successful application season aerien!

Thanks, jontron!! It was a tough decision, but ultimately one that I think is right for me. At the very least, I'll always be a Blue Devil fan so my future SOM classmates are going to have to deal with me turning into a pseudo-blue devil during March Madness ... unless of course the Bulldogs win the Ivy League and make it in

*rolls over in grave waiting for that to happen*

For all those who were invited for waitlisted, did your application status change from Submitted to Completed-Application under review or something similar. Mine still says Submitted and I'm a little concerned that I may not have all the information in. Any information on this is most appreciated gents.

Hey Guys,

I'm sure, like me, many of you are counting down the days til the 18th! Just wanted to let you know that I heard from someone "on the inside" that AdComm doesn't usually go to the waitlist during round 2 since it is their biggest round. It seems that it will be more likely that we will hear something after 3rd round. This helped me to manage my expectations a bit, but I'm still holding out hope! :)

Bleh, well I hope they have a change of heart there... I want some good news on on the 18th, and would hate to miss out on a chance at BDW...

Good luck all, hopefully we see some movement

Same here! Hopefully they bump a few of us in on the 18th. Otherwise, more waiting.

I was checking the list from last year and it seems that out of 30 people on waitlist , 4 were given acceptance offer, so I think we can see some significant movement on 18th....All the best people...1 week to go

question for you guys: Im on the WL for Fuqua but I was admitted into Ross today. I consider both of them my top school so I'd really like fuqua to accept me so that I can check out BDW. Do you think I should inform admissions of my Ross acceptance before they send out R2 deadlines? Will this have any effect this late in round 2? I feel a little bad for using them as leverage against eachother.

Eh, its a bit late in the game... I think the only thing it would accomplish is moving you from the "still waitlist" or even from accepted, to ding in order to protect their yield. I wouldn't bother.

BTW, congrats on Ross! GL on Monday!
