Who didn't receive the invitation, don't lose hope. I've seen interview invitations even between EA and R1. Good luck!

Hi Everyone.
Lots of congrats to those who got the invite. Wish you all the best to pass the interview.

As for myself I got 'Not Invited' . Though the Admission Office mentions that this is not the Final Decision and there might be a chance for an invite later, I am highly disappointed as I had thought that I had submitted a strong application for Early Action, covering all my bases and maximizing my strengths with real good essays.
I was very gung ho on Duke.I know I would be a great fit at Duke and I made sure that this message got across with appropriate reasoning. Do not know what went wrong.

I request those who are invited/accepted previously to maybe have a look at mine and others who also didnt get an invite's applications and judge what exactly was wrong. This will help us a lot so that we make sure that we apply better to other schools in coming rounds.

Also, what are the chances of getting an invite later?
Read elsewhere on GmatClub that some students have indeed got an invite for an interview later on and have been successfully accepted. But also read that 'those who are not invited will be considered when all interviews are completed. So if interview results are not what ad-com were expecting, they will try to interview some more people from the "not invited" pool - Unlikely, but not impossible.'
Ie. Should not keep high hopes.

Would really appreciate guidance and support!

Hi Everyone,

We worked with two applicants for the Early application round, and both got interview invites. It gives me confidence to say we were doing something right.

PositiveMBA, I'd like to take up your request for help and give you guys a quick feedback on the problem areas in your essays. If you are applying to other b-schools, this feedback should help avoid crucial mistakes over there.

You can write to me at the email address given in my signature.

Banking to Health Care: The Path Less Traveled [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 06 Oct 2016, 08:00
FROM Fuqua Student Blogs: Banking to Health Care: The Path Less Traveled
Growing up I always wanted to be a doctor.  So, following this passion and an interest in helping my community, I went to college to study pre-med. However, the more pre-med classes I took, the more disillusioned I became (never take Organic Chemistry as a freshman).

Instead, I began focusing on economics. One particular class that focused on health care economics opened my eyes to a completely new side of health care: hospital administration.

The Long Game
With this fresh career goal, I began steering towards corporate finance to develop my data analytics skills, as well as to gain experience in a regulated environment. Both of these would be key to helping me succeed once in hospital administration.

After landing a position as a quantitative financial analyst with Bank of America, I outlined a plan to apply to business school three years later to transition into my desired long-term field. I considered a Master’s in Hospital Administration (MHA), but an MBA has a greater scope of learning with the flexibility to pivot industries if I ended up not liking what I assumed to be my dream industry (thankfully this didn’t end up being the case!).

Lack of a Health Care Background—No Problem!
When looking at schools, I wanted a program that had a strong health care concentration. After evaluating various programs, Duke stood out for two major reasons:

  • Continuous learning of the industry
  • Experiential learning opportunities
As someone who had NO background in health care, I wanted to get thrown in head first.  I wanted to start my learning immediately and to continue learning throughout the year. Fuqua provided both of those opportunities through the Health Sector Management (HSM) Bootcamp and bi-weekly seminars.

https://blogs.fuqua.duke.edu/duke-mba/w ... 24x576.jpg
Professor David Ridley, faculty director of the Health Sector Management program, talks during Bootcamp
 

Fuqua’s great learning opportunities helped me solidify a strong base understanding of the health care industry.  The next piece that I would need to transition successfully from banking to health care would be hands on experience within the industry. There are multiple opportunities to do this in the first year of your MBA:

  • Fuqua Client Consulting Practicum (FCCP)
  • Duke University Hospital Experiential Learning Project (DUH ELP)
Because of these key reasons, as well as the incredible family-like culture at Fuqua, it was an easy choice to apply during the early decision round, and fortunately enough I got in! Once here I became immersed in the HSM program curriculum and continued to develop my healthcare knowledge through the experiential projects.

My classmates were great at encouraging me. They even helped me broaden my health care knowledge by having me explain a health care article to one of them each day.  Although sometimes it could be time-consuming, it was great that they made time for me.

The Power of the Alumni Network
Also, I discovered the power that is the Duke alumni network. Unknown to me be before coming to Fuqua, the HSM program was a merger of Fuqua and the Duke MHA program. The alumni of this MHA program now represent some incredible health care leaders throughout the nation.

Through a combination of engaging academics, experiential projects, and the Duke and Fuqua network, I successfully transitioned with an internship at New York-Presbyterian (#6 U.S. ranked hospital) in their hospital administration internship program.

I am incredibly grateful for all of the opportunities Fuqua provided, for my classmates who helped me learn and pushed me, and for all of the incredible alumni who helped mentor me throughout the year, and continue to do so now. I can’t imagine having such a successful transition into healthcare if I had gone anywhere else.

From what I've gathered, the open interview policy applies only to early entry candidates. For R1/2/3 candidates I believe Fuqua follows the "interview by invitation" policy. Is my understanding correct?

All applicants, regardless of the round in which you intend to apply, are eligible to interview during the Open Interview Period. A completed application is not required to interview during the Open Interview Period. Travel to Durham to complete an interview is required for some Early Action applicants (see notice below).

This is untrue. The open interview process is not limited to EA. See:

"All applicants, regardless of the round in which you intend to apply, are eligible to interview during the Open Interview Period"
