Not invited. Feeling a little let down considering I had a very fruitful interaction during an information session with faculty & ad com director. Anyway, this is not the end of the world.

All the best to folks who got the invites. Please do share your interview experiences.

Not invited :(

Congrats to all the people who got invited, and good luck for the interview.

Does anyone know if Duke offers a feedback after the final decision?

Can we take any steps now to improve our candidacy to get invited in further rounds?

Congratulations to all invited to interview! Being selected for the interview means the adcom liked something in your application. This is a good time to review your entire profile again to make sure that if there are any potential gaps then to emphasize the countering strength in your interview. Lets bring it home!

For all not invited, there is a chance that you might be waitlisted without an interview. I believe there were 3 or 4 candidates last year who were brought in for round 2 or round 3 for interviews because the adcom probably felt they needed to round out the class a bit more in a certain category.


Thanks for this post. If a candidate is waitlisted, would it show as Waitlisted or Not invited?

Unfortunately, Duke has a no feedback policy. You should ask a friend to read your application and give you constructive feedback so you can improve your future applications.

Same here. So glad it wasn't just me. E-mailed admissions about the issue as well.

As you start your interview prep, I thought it might be good to repost my interview experience. I hope you find it helpful. Also, the clear Admit interview reports are pretty good for prep as well - http://blog.clearadmit.com/category/int ... uke-fuqua/

You will be interviewing with a second year and if you are able to build a connection with him/her then it will not only help you with your application but also after the acceptance s/he will be a good support system. The few days after I was accepted my interviewer called me and we talked about a lot of things which really helped me get prepared for attending Duke.

---------------------------------------------

I stayed at the Hampton inn and suites, ($110/night) which is one of the newest hotel in durham and quite affordable. Rented a car ($55 total for 3days), which I think is necessary to get around in a spread out town.

Arrived at Duke around 9:30am, the assistant director of admissions was in the lobby and recognized me from the information sessions i had been to, so we talked for a few minutes before i joined the many applicants from Boston, DC,NY, Texas and international locations. I think I was the only one from west.

Met a lot of first year students and re-connected with some second years i knew from my last visit. Good times all around. Learnt lots of new things about Duke and listened to some amazing stories and backgrounds.

My interviewer was a second year with a background in pharma and consulting and we connected well over our conservation.

Interview questions we went over:
Walk me through your resume
Seems like you have some great experience,why do you want to get an MBA?
Some question specific to me and my goals and background.
Why Duke?
How do you handle feedback from your manager?
Conflict in a team example
Conflict as a manager example
Failure as a manager example
What is your leadership style?
Some more questions specific to me
How will you Contribute to Duke?
Any questions for me?

I enjoyed the conversation and relaxed atmosphere.
After the interview was Fuqua Friday where the students were packing lunches to fight hunger so it was good to see team Fuqua at work to help the community.
I met up with some second years I knew from before, tried the pumpkin Porter which was awesome and ate some good food at Fuqua Friday.
This is what comes to mind, but if you have any specific questions then please post and ill try to answer.

Thanks, Jokesta.
I'd not mind a preparation strategy from all you guys who sailed through the interviews. I have two more weeks for my interview.
It'd be great if you can share: websites with interview reports, preparation strategy and game day strategy.

Cheers
