I'm on the list for R1. I really want to make this happen for Fuqua, my girlfriend is at Duke Law and I loved the visit to the school, hoping I can get some good news eventually...

Hey everyone!
I am so disappointed to be waitlisted at my top priority school. However, after waiting for the call for 8 hours and sleeping under the fear of a reject, it was a huge relief to see my name on the waitlist. I know the chances are bleak but the chances exist and with this realization I have decided to hope for good things once more.

Guys, lets not lose hope!

[Also I would love if someone can guide about the next procedures. Do we get to have a conversation with a manager from Duke about the waitlist?]

Is it bad to email them right away (within the next couple days)? I want to reiterate my interest, and maybe mention new job developments.

Not bad, but admissions office is closed until new year, so better off waiting for couple weeks. Plus I doubt they will read until late Jan or even Feb.

Make sure adcom knows that your girl friend is at Duke law and you want to be in the same city as her.
