Sorry for my over dramatic post earlier. I am devastated about not being accepted, but at least I was waitlisted. It sucks to miss out on the chance to go to BDW - I had plans to bring my entire family and celebrate my wife's birthday there. In any case, I will try my damnedest to get off the waitlist and get admitted this year!

To address those about reapplying next year, I am afraid this is my only shot. I have my age working against me. But more importantly, I have family considerations as well. My wife is about to begin her career, and my oldest child has been switching schools too often as it stands.

I want to thank everyone who PM'd me kind words and encouragement. Gmatclub, in my opinion, truly speaks to the 'Team Fuqua' concept.

Best of luck to everyone!

These dings don't get any easier to take. It is hard not to take it personally after pouring so much time, effort, and money into each application. I'm sure you'll make the most of wherever you go and it'll allow you to reach your goals.

Farful sorry to hear about the WL, but try and stay positive and stay in touch with adcom, as there seem to be a fair few people who get in off the WL each year...

Might be better served at tuck for that. Have met a lot of tuckies in the M office here.

How do you know? Would it show up under financial aid?


The adcomm who called me this morning mentioned that there will be a second page on your acceptance letter if you get scholarship.


You can write the Adcom and respectfully let them know that Fuqua is your first choice (If it is) but you have received a scholarship from another school. I know of some cases that the school has increased their offer.

If you are an admit, please join the facebook group. There has been plenty of chatter about housing for folks with children and you may connect with people who have done some research already.

The Leadership Cohort Experience: Learning about Leadership  [#permalink] New post 19 Mar 2014, 14:00
FROM Fuqua Current Student Blogs: The Leadership Cohort Experience: Learning about Leadership Alongside C-Level Management
One of the (many) ways in which Fuqua sets itself apart as an MBA program is the focus on leadership development, evident through its mantra to mold, shape and empower “leaders of consequence.” To support this mission, the Fuqua/Coach K Center on Leadership & Ethics (COLE) was created in 2004, in collaboration with Duke University Athletics and the Kenan Institute for Ethics. There are many ways in which COLE plays an active role in everyday Fuqua life, but one that made a big impact in my last term was the COLE Leadership Cohort Experience (LCE).

LCE is a unique opportunity that runs in Fall 2, Spring 1, and Spring 2, allowing students to interact with C-Level executives and senior managers, as well as fellow students, in a more intimate setting. First-year students who are interested in the program apply during Fall 1, and 125 students are selected to participate in one of the following three terms. I was fortunate to be a member of this last term’s LCE session.

Structure of the Leadership Cohort Experience

Although classes aren’t usually held on Wednesdays, LCE typically meets four Wednesday mornings during the term. During the first session, we were privileged to hear from Joe LeBoeuf and the two second-year students who organized the session. We were also split into small groups of 5, who we would work closely with during the duration of the program.

Before each subsequent meeting, we were sent the bio of the next speaker and were required to read an article that related to the speaker’s topic. Each student came prepared to listen, question, reflect and engage. After a brief introduction, each speaker would present for about 45 minutes, explaining their perspective of leadership and giving examples from their personal and professional life to highlight the points they were making. Since it was a small group, we were allowed and encouraged to ask questions. After the main presentation, we broke out into our small cohort groups and discussed what we learned, the principles that most impacted us, and how our own unique experiences added to the discussion. Each team then had the opportunity to present to the group (which included the speaker) to highlight their main takeaways and learnings. It was inspiring to see the speaker taking notes on what we were saying, proving that even great leaders have opportunities to learn and improve.

Following each meeting, the speakers would typically linger in the classroom to interact with any students that wanted to ask follow-up questions. Also, we were all given access to a message board where we gave our insights and reflections after we had some time to internalize the session.

Speakers and Key Insights

This past term, the three speakers that visited us and the key insights I took away from each session were:

  • Andrea Hyde – President, C. Wonder. Formerly at French Connection (CEO) and Nicole Farhi, Kenneth Cole, The Gap, Old Navy, Estee Lauder, and Calvin Klein.
  • Be confident in your abilities.
  • Take responsibility for the team.
  • Don’t be afraid to hire someone smarter than you. If they eventually deserve your job over you, then they should get it.
  • Mike Zafirovski – Founder & President, The Zaf Group LLC. Formerly at Nortel (President & CEO), Motorola (President and COO), and General Electric
  • You need values and results. Values without results = a failed company. Results without values = no sustainability.
  • Always put the company and the team above yourself.
  • As a leader, be transparent and consistent.
  • Patrick Jordan – Vice-President, Quintiles.
  • Make sure everyone on the team knows the team’s goals and that they can give the same 30-second pitch. If everyone knows it, everyone will be unified.
  • Be ‘cool’ in a crisis, but not ‘cold.’ Make sure your team can see you as a human.
  • It’s better for a leader to know his/her limits than for his/her team to guess at them.
I’m honored to have had the privilege of participating in last term’s Leadership Cohort Experience and would highly recommend it to anyone at all interested in becoming a better leader.

Indian Student Perspectives: How Business School Can Help Y [#permalink] New post 21 Mar 2014, 05:00
FROM Fuqua Current Student Blogs: Indian Student Perspectives: How Business School Can Help You Find the Right Job in the U.S.
Image
Guest Blogger: Dan McCleary, Regional Director for India

I have spent the last three years chatting often with potential business school students from India as director of the region for Fuqua. Again and again, I heard candidates say much of the value proposition of an MBA from a U.S. school is the opportunity to acquire  experience interning for marquee firms in the US and eventually land a job. However, the competition for MBA jobs is stiff, especially for career-changers. I spoke with four second-year Indian students about their summer internships, their post-MBA plans, and how the resources at Fuqua helped enable their job search success in the following videos.

Roshni Rathi spent the summer at Boston Consulting Group. Watch the video to hear Roshni speak about how the second year student mentors worked with her to help her secure the BCG internship that turned into a full time job offer.

Kuber Sharma worked in non-profit consulting before coming to Fuqua. Watch the video to hear Kuber speak about his transition to Microsoft, and the strength of technology firm recruitment at Fuqua.

Deepak Dewani worked in commercial real estate before coming to Fuqua. Watch the video to hear Deepak speak about how the Career Management Center, the Week-In-Cities program, and the career clubs helped Deepak transition into an investment banking role at Bank of America/Merrill Lynch.

Ankit Mehta worked in aerospace before coming to Fuqua. Watch the video about how the Fuqua Client Consulting Practicum helped Ankit transition to a job in consulting.

either will get you there. tuck is tuck and you can bid with interview points for any office. fuqua seems like a feeder to atlanta and dc offices though...for ex... half of the bcg class of 2014 hires went to DC https://www.bcg.com/join_bcg/oncampus/f ... rsOnCampus

From a sheer number perspective, Tuck places a lot more into MBB than Fuqua...usually it is 20-30 at most between those three.

If you like ___________, you’ll love Durham! [#permalink] New post 27 Mar 2014, 08:00
FROM Fuqua Current Student Blogs: If you like ___________, you’ll love Durham!
As a second year with only two months left in Durham (after returning from studying abroad in Singapore), I realize that there are quite a few things about this city that I’m going to miss when I move to Pennsylvania after graduation. Now, if someone would have asked me 2 years ago when I was a prospective student “Why do you want to go to Fuqua?”, living in Durham wouldn’t have been one of my reasons. While it definitely isn’t NYC or Chicago, it’s not trying to be, and that’s what I love about it. Durham (and North Carolina in general) has a culture and a pace all its own, and here are 10 examples of why I’m so glad I chose to live in this part of the country for grad school:

Entertainment                    Good Food and Drink                  Action                         Sports

Housing Options                Museums                                   Friends                       Relaxing

Shopping                           Travel

[b]Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) has the best shows Broadway has to offer, and there’s even a student discount! The Carolina Theater is also home to comedy shows and musical acts and is located in the heart of downtown. My classmates and I have had a ton of fun seeing Bon Jovi and Macklemore at PNC Arena in Raleigh, which is where all of the major touring acts go when they’re in town. It is also home to the Carolina Hurricanes, our local NHL team, and an annual rodeo. During the spring, summer, and fall, one of my favorite venues is the Booth Amphitheater in Cary. Coordinating a bus to take you there for a concert should be on every Fuqua student’s bucket list.

[b]Mateo’s, Piedmont, and Bull City Burger bring excitement to Durham’s culinary scene and offer a great place to unwind after completing a week of projects and midterms. If you’re looking for more classic dishes and a casual atmosphere, my favorite places are Dain’s Place and Elmo’s Diner on 9th Street, along with Alivia’s Bistro right on Main Street.

A great microbrewery scene in Durham is something I didn’t anticipate before starting at Fuqua. Triangle Brewery, Fullsteam (started by a Fuqua alumnus!), Red Oak, and Foothills are all beers brewed within an hour of Durham and are offered at most restaurants around town.

[b]American Tobacco Trail, Duke Forest, and Washington Duke Trail give runners and walkers alike green space to decompress after a long night of studying, and with plenty of road races around the area like the Tar Heel 10-miler, Bull City Classic, and Raleigh Rock n’ Roll Marathon, there’s always a reason to get in shape.

Business school is the perfect time to perfect (or start working on) your golf swing, and Durham offers courses ranging from beginner to expert, all within minutes from campus, which is something you wouldn’t be able to find near a big city school. Our golf club hosts several events each year at the Washington Duke and Hillandale courses, and my friends and I have played at The Crossings and even UNC’s Finley course.

As for hiking, there are several state parks around the area, and the Smoky Mountain foothills in Asheville are only a 3-hour drive. Eno River is a quick day trip on a fall afternoon and high atop my bucket list is William B. Umstead Park, next to the airport.

For students and partners that are more into team or individual sports like soccer (or fútbol), softball, football, basketball, and badminton, the Duke Rec Center always has intermural leagues taking place. I was on a softball team last year and it was a great way to meet more of my classmates, spend some time outside, and use the glove I’ve had since 1st grade! Fuqua teams always do well in these leagues, and our basketball team just traveled to Harvard and took 2nd place in their business school tournament.

[b]Duke sporting events are free with your Duke ID, so if the past two years have been any indication, coming to Fuqua means that you’ll have a front-row seat to one of the ACC’s finest football, lacrosse, soccer, and basketball teams. If those sports don’t keep you busy, you can always catch the beginning or end of the Durham Bulls’ season in their newly renovated stadium. There are student discounts, but buy your tickets early unless you enjoy sitting on the steep grassy hill in the outfield (I’m speaking from experience here).

For those of you interested in watching highly paid individuals play sports, you can do that in Raleigh and Charlotte, which is only a 2-hour drive. Raleigh is home to the Carolina Hurricanes, our NHL team, and Charlotte boasts the Carolina Panthers of the NFL and Charlotte Bobcats of the NBA. Charlotte is also home to the NASCAR Hall of Fame and has a race or two each season, which is definitely an experience you don’t want to miss while living in the south.

[b]Station Nine, Trinity Commons, West Village, Lofts at Lakeview, and Alden Place) usually has the right mix of features for most students. I have enjoyed knowing where most of my friends live and I like the fact that since most people are near each other, it is easy to arrange team meetings, group dinners, or parties. Not to mention, the convenience of being able to drive from place to place beats waiting around for public transportation, especially in the winter!

[b]The Streets at Southpoint, a 15-minute drive from campus.

If you’re more creative and more hip than me, you’d definitely be interested in the boutique shops around Durham and Chapel Hill. It seems like there are more popping up each day, so I can’t keep track of them, but some of my personal favorites are Magpie Boutique, STeP, and vert & vogue, all of which are near East Campus or right downtown. It’s customary for our Luxury Brand and Retail Club to have an open house at one of these boutiques where Fuqua students can browse at our own pace and even have a glass of champagne, so make sure to watch out for that event on our internal website, Campus Groups!

[b]Nasher Museum of Art located on Duke’s campus. It is free for students and always has interesting special exhibitions (and its café is delicious!). If you have more time, the North Carolina Museum of Art is located in downtown Raleigh. General admission is free (with some exhibits requiring paid admission) and is host to renowned permanent collections. If you’re a science buff when you’re not being a business school student, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science in Raleigh and the Museum of Life and Science in Durham are also great options for a few hours away from finance and operations assignments. They also have adult-only events every month or so, which gives Fuqua students an even bigger excuse to visit. Not interested in art or science? Check out this website to see all of the great museums Fuqua students have at our fingertips.

[b]The Retreat at Brightleaf is a popular day spa in downtown Durham along with Bella Trio. For students that choose yoga as their primary form of relaxation, there is no shortage of studios, plus you can even take free classes at the Wilson Rec Center or Brodie Gym on campus! The Durham Yoga Company, Blue Point Yoga Center, and Bikram Yoga Durham all have a large class selection from which to choose that fits into any MBA student’s schedule.
