Query: When I view the HTML preview of my completed application, answers appear clearly and as I had entered them on the portal. However, when I preview the PDF version of the completed application (watermarked "Applicant Copy"), I've noticed that a few of the answers I had typed into the portal have been partially truncated/do not appear completely in the boxes provided. This is particularly noticeable in the "Leadership Experiences and Community Involvement" section of the preview, in which multiple answers appear truncated.

Is this happening to anyone else? Do I need to be concerned?


In for R1 as well!
I had the same exact issue in the Leadership/Community section. Wouldn't be too concerned.

Here's the response I received from Fuqua:

"Thank you for notifying us.

Your application looks fine on our end.  If we need clarification, someone from our office will contact you.

Have a great day!"

Hey everyone, quick question...

Does anyone know if there's a lag between official GMAT score reports and what is reported in SISS? I logged in today and saw under "applicant materials" that only the self-reported GMAT scores were listed. I have a confirmation email from GMAC saying that my scores were sent to the Duke Daytime program, but do not see them in SISS. Anyone think this calls for an email to admissions or does all the information just take a while to populate?

Hi Bulldozer, do you have any "to do" item? If they can't find your official report a "to do" item will show and you will need to send a copy by email.

"You have no to-do items"

Upon researching this a little more, I suspect the official scores are paired with the self-reported scores/application as a whole when it's processed. Seeing as my status still says "application submitted" I suspect it just hasn't been processed yet.

I could be totally off in this assumption, but that's what I'm thinking....anyone have a different experience?

In my case it took five days to change the status from "Application Submitted" to "Application Complete". If they can't pair your scores while processing your application you will be notified by mail.

Good luck!

Awesome, that's a relief. Man, barely a week after the application is submitted and I'm getting neurotic...it's going to be a long wait until December! :lol:

Bootcamp: An Intensive Study of Health Care [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 20 Oct 2016, 10:00
FROM Fuqua Student Blogs: Bootcamp: An Intensive Study of Health Care
When I told my friends and coworkers that I was starting my first MBA classes on July 17, a Sunday, they thought I was crazy. But that was when the Health Sector Management (HSM) Bootcamp kicked off.

Bootcamp is a requirement for students from any of Fuqua’s MBA programs who wish to earn the HSM Certificate, and the term “bootcamp” is more than appropriate. In the course of a week, we attended over 20 lectures, and networked with professionals from Medtronic, Johnson & Johnson, Cardinal Health, and others. And sometime in between, we found time to complete a final project, consisting of a team assignment and 20-minute presentation.

Diverse Backgrounds
As someone relatively new to the health care industry, Bootcamp got me up to speed on issues of global health care policy. I was able to learn from physicians and other health care professionals—some were Duke faculty, but others were students like me. In a lecture about Medicare policy, one of my classmates raised her hand to share her experience working for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. In the next lecture on global drug pricing, a student chimed in with his experience as a pharmacist in France. There were doctors and nurses from different specialties, and folks with experience working for pharma companies, health care IT companies—you name it.

It’s easy to get intimidated in a classroom full of students who have already had extremely successful health care careers. But, at Fuqua, that diversity is what makes the discussion interesting. Whether you’re a provider, payer, or a patient, the health care sector is one that touches us all. I found that my classmates were just as excited to hear about my graphic design background as I was to hear about their healthcare start up.

https://blogs.fuqua.duke.edu/duke-mba/w ... 24x576.jpg

Alumni Connections
Throughout Bootcamp, we were privileged to hear from alumni at companies from across the health care sector—pharma, biotech, medical device, venture capital, provider, payer, etc. For first-year Daytime MBA students, it was our first opportunity to network with professionals on campus. But more than that, it allowed us to see how what we were learning in class translated into a health sector career. One alumna from BD shared her experience working in emerging markets. Another from Janssen told us how a drug he worked on helped a patient with severe depression.

It was helpful to see the practical application of a Duke MBA, but it also gave us a first glimpse at the recruiting process and the opportunity to meet some fantastic alumni in a low-pressure setting.

Creating a Community
On one of the last nights of Bootcamp, all of the HSM students came to the Winter Garden in the Fox Center for a few hours of team building. We untangled a human knot, built towers out of plastic tubes, and raced against each other in a gyro ring game that I found to be completely impossible. My teams didn’t win, but we had a chance to get to know each other outside of the classroom.

When the rest of my first-year classmates came together on campus a few weeks later for MBA orientation, I was happy to see some familiar faces from Bootcamp. I had already met quite a few members of my section, and two of my Consequential Leadership (CLEAD) teammates are in HSM as well. The rest of my health care classmates are spread out across the other five sections, but we get a chance to catch up on Wednesdays during our HSM seminar. The seminar meets six times over the fall 1 and fall 2 terms and is a requirement for first-year HSM students.

Looking Forward
The HSM certificate is one of the main reasons I chose Fuqua, but I didn’t realize just how quickly the program would move through an exhaustive health care curriculum. I’ve already learned so much from my classmates, professors, and alumni over the course of Bootcamp and Fall Term 1, but I know I have a long way to go.
