I was waitlisted for 5 months last year. Please let me know if you want to hear my strategy or have any questions....I didn't get in but was released on the second day of school. You still have a good chance.

Does anybody have experience with"wait list" ? Any further actions required? Do the answer come in the subsequent rounds?

You need to log into the other website Duke emailed when we submitted our application. It's there.

I'm confused...have Round 1 applicants started getting interview invites yet? It says on the stats that 13 people have been interviewed R1 on the first page, but then it sounds like people on the thread are saying we won't get interviews until Nov 20? If anyone knows...please clarify. Thanks!

I bet those numbers are applicant initiated interviews.

Congrats to all the EA accepts today! Don't forget to change your status!

What are "applicant initiated interviews?"

Do you know if everyone else has to wait until Nov 20 for an interview invite for round 1 or do they trickle out?

Hey guys,

I really wanted to participate in this chat but wasn't able to due to firewall issues at my client's office. Seemed like a great group of folks and good questions. If someone has any questions regarding waitlist, acceptence or applications please post here or feel free to PM me and I will be sure to respond.

Thanks everyone for your congrats, congratulations to all that got in, and do not give up to all that were waitlisted or dinged - there are more than enough examples of hard work and perseverance paying off on this forum and more.

I applied in R1 and interviewed on-campus during the open interview period, which was in early October. They were interviewing 8 people an hour from 9-5 straight. Probably half were EA and the other half were R1. Hope that helps.

I was admitted as well! The strange thing is that I never got a call. I got an email to check my status and when I logged on it said I was accepted and all that fun stuff. I am an American living in Korea. I don't know why I didn't get a call, but I was definitely feeling bad about not getting one and was pleasently surprised, to say the least, to find out I did in fact get in.

Did anyone else NOT get a call and still get accepted?

Odd. Maybe they couldn't call you in time since you are in South Korea? If I were in your shoes, I would call them tomorrow evening their time to check with them. But, I have a feeling you are getting a call tomorrow morning their time.

Keep us posted! And, congratulations :lol:

Dinged and not surprised at all.

Congrats to all those admitted :wink:
Best of luck for people on WLs!

Did any Indian Male applicant with background in IT consulting got an admit please?

I am working for a UK bank in its IT division and fall in the above category.

Last year couple guys got accepted without getting a phone call. I think one was in Mexico and other in SE Asia. Congrats on getting admitted, hope to see you in Durham in Fall.
