dinged... don't know if anyone read the associated doc. It sounds like you can still be invited at a later stage (and this is not a final decision).

I'm not keeping any hopes on it, given that some get Interview-Waitlist option.



I received the message, same thought as urs, waitlist for just interview forget about it, I would rather they do it in the booth style, send out ding email early and end your hope

Congrats to everyone who got an interview! I'm disappointed and would have really liked to go to Duke but guess my GMAT wasn't good enough :P Best of luck! Happy with my current pool so far. But wish Duke was also included.

Hi, Portal says ' not invited for interview'. However, an additional pop-up says "We regret to inform you that you have not been invited to interview; please note that this is not a final decision on your application. The interview invitation process is highly selective. It is possible that you would be invited to interview at a later stage in this round or in future rounds. If your interview status should change, our office will notify you directly."

Obviously not keeping any hopes now. But has it happened in the past that they send an invite at a later stage?! Anybody from past admissions?

Thanks n Regards

I think the chance is very small, don't forget there are many people on the waiting list for admission

I am glad you asked!

I am an EA admit, and I did not get my interview invite on the invite release date. I got it 10 days later in an email, and they had not updated my SISS portal then. Although mine is the only case I have heard of in this cycle, I am not sure it is completely over yet. I was in the exact same place that you are in right now, so I was as surprised when I did get the invite later, and even more surprised on getting accepted.

While it is better to have a final decision, having some hope is not the worst thing either! All the best!

5 Things About Durham That’ll Surprise You [#permalink]

FROM Fuqua Current Student Blogs: 5 Things About Durham That’ll Surprise You
I was very excited to make the decision and move to the U.S. for my husband’s MBA. When we started the journey of searching and applying for an MBA, Fuqua was one of his top choices because of the rank, the academic level, and the spirit of Team Fuqua.

All that is great, but I had different concerns coming into this adventure, and for me, as a partner it was choosing a place to live! I needed somewhere I could work, have fun, and go out for a drink with my soon-to-be friends from all over the world. At the time, Durham did not sound like the best place for a cool young professional as myself.

However, after doing my research and especially after living here for more than a year, I can proudly share with you that I love this place and I think you are going to love it too. To help you better understand this area, here are a few of the things I have learned about Durham:

1. Durham has a Great Culinary Scene!
As a foodie who loves to try new things I was happy to find out about the amazing food scene in town, with dozens of restaurants that have received national acclaim and media attention. Durham was chosen as the “Tastiest Town in the South” and as a foodie I’m telling you this is the place to be! Here, you can find anything you crave, from great coffee at Joe Van Gogh, to southern comfort food at Dame’s Chicken & Waffles, and healthy and chic places like Parker and Otis.

2. Every Week You Can Find a Reason to be Festive
Durham is home to more than 47 annual festivals. Whether you are in to documentaries like me, or a beer fan like many of the students, or whether arts and culture is your thing, I am sure you can find the festival for you! Here are just some of them:

  • American Dance Festival
  • Bull Durham Blues Festival
  • Durham Arts Council’s CenterFest
  • Festival for the Eno River
  • Full Frame Documentary Film Festival
  • Native American Powwow
  • NC Gay & Lesbian Film Festival
  • NC Pride Parade and Festival
  • SunTrust Broadway Series at DPAC
  • World Beer Festival
  • And the list goes on and on
3. Durham is a Great Place for Kids
As a partner, I have a lot of partner friends who moved here with their kids or even had some while living here. Through them I have learned that Durham is a wonderful place to raise kids. It’s known for great school systems, considered as one of the “Top 20 Places to Educate Your Child” by Forbes and has been included among the “100 Best Communities for Young People.”

I also found out that Durham offers many cool places to spend quality time with your kids like the famous Duke Lemur Center and the Museum of Life and Science (which by the way, I took my nephews to and they loved). Durham has also made lists of best small cities for relocating families. You can read about other Durham accolades here.

4. Durham Is a Great Place to Visit
We all want are families to visit us when we are here and to have fun together. Whenever our family comes to town, they enjoy the city and the warm welcome of the Fuqua community and can’t wait to visit again. Durham, also known as the Bull City, and its features are well known and your guests will love it here! You might be surprised to know that Durham:

5. Durham has Many Business Opportunities
As a part of the Fuqua and the Durham community, I was happy to learn that the city has many business opportunities and is a part of the blooming Research Triangle Park. It is home to some major corporations and fascinating startups. Here are a few of Durham’s business superlatives compiled by the Durham Convention and Visitors Bureau:

  • #3 Best Place for Business and Careers
  • Highest wages in the South
  • National top 10 corporation for working moms
  • World’s leading research and development center
  • Among best workplaces in higher education
  • #9 top Mid-sized City for Young Professionals.
Want to learn more about this young innovative city? Here is a fun list of 40 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Durham and a new Duke web site that talks about Durham’s history, things to do, living options and more. Also feel free to reach out to me with questions. I hope you got a better sense of Durham and I’m looking forward seeing you in town!

When I applied to Duke last year in R2, I received the same message. I ended up getting an interview during R3. I don't want to necessarily get your hopes up but I can speak from experience that it's possible they will send an invite at a later stage. Good luck!

but my case is a bit different...I am not based in USA, and I selected one of the hubs to conduct the interview if any, and they will only be in the hub for one day 2 weeks later.
but thanks for sharing, and wish you all the best in the new class.
