Has anyone received financial aid information yet? I check on the SISS portal and it says my "Financial Aid info is not ready for release". The admission letter also said that merit awards would be posted on page two of the electronic admission letter but I only have one page on mine. I assume this means I did not receive any scholarship.

Still super excited about Fuqua. Congrats to all!

Still have not gotten the admission email the letter says to look out for, but on the admission page there was a link to the admission letter. For me the admission letter had a second page detailing the amount I was receiving in merit scholarship.

For all of you heading to Durham, NC, here is a "famous" bridge that has shaved off tops of trucks and other high vehicles for the last 7 years. Was featured in the WSJ today.... an IT guy from Duke has put up cameras to capture the accidents and then posted them here: http://11foot8.com/

Anyone have any information about the employment verification process? I was looking over my application and noticed that I made a mistake with one of my extracurricular activies - omitted the name of one of organizations (volunteered with same "parent" org in different places). Do they even verify extracurriculars? If so, anyone think I should reach out to let them know the locations to avoid potential headaches?

Hi guys,

I have a couple of questions

1. Is it okay if I update my resume a bit for the interviews from the one that I submitted along with the applications or are we supposed to take the very same resume for the blind resume?

2. In what detail do the interviewers ad adcom cross-check the information between application and interview? say, in the short term goals if I have mentioned 'Big Four' as my target companies but while interview I share my post MBA interest as more broad - strategy consulting (which both Big 4 and MBB do), will that be a red flag for adcom? in what detail do interviewers share detail with the adcom?

Can anyone share their ideas or suggestions on the above?

Thanks a lot

Hi Accepted applicants, could you confirm if there is a "to-do" item on your SISS portal requesting you to complete the FAFSA form?

While anxiously waiting for R2 decisions, some R2 applicants found an incomplete item showed up on their SISS status page regarding the FAFSA form, but the other applicants' pages didn't have such an item. It is suspected that the people who have this "to-do" item will hear great news on the decision day, while the other people probably are rejected or waitlisted. Is there a "to-do" item particularly for FASFA showing up on your SISS after you are accepted? Thanks!

Congrats admits! Has anyone received information about fellowships on their SISS portal? I haven't filled out FAFSA so no sure if that's the reason why I don't see anything yet. Just curious of fellowship consideration has passed already.

Hello everyone! I am accepted in R2. So excited about Duke Fuqua!!!

Anyone here looking for a roommate? I'm a female student and interested in Alden Place(formerly Alexan), Trinity Commons, and Lofts since the majority of Fuqua students live at these places. (I excluded Station 9 because of long waitlist). If interested in sharing flat, please DM me!

Yup--will be going down Thursday to catch up with some friends and see about job placement for my wife. The rate at the "host" hotel near campus was full ~24 hours after the email went out, so we booked the Hilton Durham a few miles away. I can't wait to connect with you all!
