Hi everyone,

I thought I'd get this waitlist thread started -- this thread was a huge help for me when I spent many months on the Duke WL last year, and I hope it helps you all this year too.

I've also attached my completely unofficial waitlist process as I experienced it last year. Hope this helps a bit (and fingers crossed, adcom doesn't change their process from last year to this year).

Good luck with the Fuqua 2013 waitlist!

So do WL'ers get admitted on each admission date, deposit deadlines, or sporadically throughout the cycle? I was waitlisted in EA and I am curious if I will hear anything tomorrow. Thoughts?

Last year it was admission date, but it wasn't guaranteed. Some people will hear back tomorrow (positive and negative results). But if you don't get a status update email, you're kept on the WL for more waiting.

Well I guess it depends if they stagger the release of the results. I'm hoping that maybe we have another hr or so that we could potentially hear. Does anyone know the logistics behind notifying applicants on the decision deadlines?

Hi fellow WL'ers. Put on the list today. Any indication (based on last year's experience) on when we'll hear something more?

Great ... two more months ...

Curious if anyone thinks this is another strategy for Fuqua to raise its yield. If applicants choose to remain "active" on the wait list, surely they'll accept an admission offer in a few months.

Duke's WL FAQ wrote:
When will the Admissions Committee review waitlisted candidates?
The Admissions Committee may review applications of candidates on the waitlist at any point of time during the application process. You will be informed immediately if/when a new decision has been made on your application. As such, please be sure to keep us informed of any changes in your contact information.

When is the latest I would be admitted from the waitlist?
In the past, we have admitted students from the waitlist as late as the start of Orientation in August.



in the letter
Quote:
The admissions committee will review applications of waitlisted candidates periodically during upcoming admission rounds and throughout the summer months. Based on the competition and available space, we will make a final decision on your application when appropriate. We will update you on your waitlist status during subsequent rounds of admission.



so... to be honest, I'm not sure...

Sure... but every school does this... it's nothing new, and nothing vindictive by fuqua... just part of the game

Re: Duke (Fuqua) 2013 - Calling All Waitlisted Applicants [#permalink] New post 08 Jan 2013, 13:30
Just got the waitlist email. I guess I am bummed, but I am still deciding whether or not to stay on the list.

My first inclination was that I must have done something wrong in my application since my GPA and GMAT are decent (and I am a female, not that it makes it a guarantee at all but my understanding is that sometimes standards are a bit different). I really spent a lot of time and effort on my essays, visited the school twice, not sure what to think. I also thought maybe it was something my recommenders said...but then I got into Darden using the same recommenders so they couldn't have said anything too horrendous.

I will say that while I showed enthusiasm in my essays and interview and gave specific reasons for wanting to go to Fuqua (specific clubs/classes, etc I would contribute to), I never once said Fuqua was my top choice. To be honest, it isn't and I didn't want to be dishonest. I also listed all the schools I applied to in their application, again wanting to be honest. Maybe that was a bad call. Would they really put me on the waitlist because they weren't sure I'd attend?

I guess the yield management theory makes sense, but I also think it's important to take a critical look at what I might have messed up, too. Maybe I'm being too hard on myself.

Any ideas on this? And also--I don't want to potentially take a spot away from another applicant--but it would also be nice to have a choice to compare Darden to in the event that I do not get into my other schools. Does it make sense to stay on the waitlist if I am not absolutely sure I would attend?
