Happy to have an admit w/ a small award. Does Duke also offer need-based fin aid, or is what you see in the letter the only opportunity you have to receive money?

You're choosing Duke over CBS?

Waitlisted here also! I might submit additional recommendations since mine were not good enough. If anyone has an additional tip please let me know.

Not sure yet, but would at least consider it. I'm interested in general mgmt. I don't think the ranking differences between Duke and CBS are significant enough to push me towards CBS if I felt Duke was overall a better fit.

Has anyone been able to open the actual decisions or anything through the FUQUA we portal? In every single browser, I cannot open my decision. I know for a fact I was not accepted because I was not given an interview - which I also could not open when they released that decision either. I don't care about not being admitted I just want to figure out how to open the damned stuff they send

Do you have a popup blocker turned on? The decision opens in a new window. Also, how in the world did you not get an in? 760 and 3.92 is damn impressive if you ask me.

I have no idea. didn't even get an interview at Duke or Booth and not in at Ross with an interview. it's insane. My essays are fantastic , clear,concise. It must be a ding with my recs. Yeah I disabled my popup blocker and still nothing

I just got it working and in the process, figured out my potential ding for Duke. While submitting late at night I missed "preferred first name" and inadvertently put my last name. Their consolation letter started Dear Mr. (my last name) (my last name). Where the hell is a facepalm smiley when you need one. Biggest waste of \$250 I've ever made.

Did Fuqua lowball everyone with scholarships? I'm seeing very few people get them, and for only a little bit of money. I thought Duke was generous with financial aid...wonder if they gave most of it out EA/R1?

Agreed. Its possible that they focused on EA/R1. Hard to imagine turning down a much more generous package to get loaded up in debt again.

East Coast ... hard to maintain optimism at this point.

On the negative side: A ding never feels good

On the positive side: All my previous dings were w/o interview. It is oddly comforting to know that I can be as unimpressive in person as I am on paper!

Kind of feels like this:

Ahahahahaha this is exactly what I needed to see, thanks. Darden looks awesome, you should be proud. Good luck to all of us, and congrats to the admits!

Hey mgh, I felt that way too at first after I received my Round 1 offer. You and I have similar stats(albeit different WE) and from what I can tell we received similar offers at Fuqua.

I don't think that's the case though. Perhaps there are some really talented people applying to Fuqua and the competition for scholarships is high. Maybe we're part of an over represented pool of applicants? Who knows?

I'm looking at the duke employment report, was wondering if anybody has researched consulting yet.... It says 36% go into consulting, but of that 29% is "general consulting" and only 4% is "management consulting"...yet BCG/McKinsey/Bain/Deloitte alone make up over 10% of the student body...what gives?
