Your Fuqua Classmates are Everything [#permalink]

New post 24 Jul 2016, 21:50
FROM Fuqua Student Blogs: Your Fuqua Classmates are Everything
I’m still learning how meaningful the relationships with my Fuqua classmates are to me.

To be fair, I’m one of the older members of my class. At 33, I’ve probably loathed the long hours more than most. And to be honest, I can be grumpy at times. Thankfully, I can lean on my military experience to help my teammates and me through those periods of sleep deprivation and anxiety from academics that we all face in a top MBA program—without being too deeply challenged by the stress.

Despite the pressure that surrounds us, I have been profoundly affected by my classmates and I want to tell you a bit about what I’ve learned so far.

Anyone reading these blogs doubtlessly knows that Fuqua is all about team culture. Should you be unaware of that, you must have been brought to this blog post by some errant Google search. In that case, feel free to head over to this entry on the principles of ‘Team Fuqua’ to learn more. If you did already know that, then let me share an example of how the Team Fuqua spirit ensures that we are all valued as members of the community.

This story begins by saying that institutional portraits are never good enough for everyone—for that matter, sometimes they aren’t good for anyone. Some of my classmates fell into the less than satisfied category after we had our class pictures taken at the beginning of the program.

https://blogs.fuqua.duke.edu/duke-mba/w ... 25x300.jpg
Getting started with the photos
Now, I had been a commercial photographer for a while after I left the military. I had served commercial clients such as the University of North Carolina’s career services department, and I thought I would be able to do something to help. The problem was simply that I couldn’t find the time to take photos in the midst of academics, recruiting, and professional club activities. Nonetheless, Facebook posts from classmates told me that there was a need for better headshots—a need that at times that seemed to border on desperate.

That’s where my teammates come in. First, there was Michelle Jiang. She got in touch with me after I had mentioned that I’d be willing to do it. She told me, “I need a headshot! But, how can I help you do this for our classmates?”

She proceeded to set up a classroom, arranged a signup process, and coordinated the entire event to ensure that we were able to support everyone who was interested. She didn’t think twice about sacrificing her time—she just executed like a great teammate.

Then during the photo shoot, every one of my classmates stopped by to ask what we needed: lunch, something to drink, a snack, anything. Some classmates were bringing in changes of business clothes for peers to use, others were helping to give feedback and encouragement. What started as a small effort quickly became a community endeavor with everyone supporting one another.

The remarkable thing I noticed is that when the photo shoot was finished, everyone stayed. They stayed to help complete the job and refused to let me bear the burden of packing up and cleaning alone. They stayed because that’s what teammates do. They stayed because we all support each other’s ambitions. This mentality is ingrained in the Fuqua community.

https://blogs.fuqua.duke.edu/duke-mba/w ... 24x509.jpg
A classroom turned into a photo studio
 

And that would be a great story, if it simply ended there. What I had set about to do for a few classmates instead turned into an incredible community experience. The next day at school, students were sharing stories about the photoshoot and asking what they could do to help me make it happen in the future. The Association of Women in Business (AWIB) reached out to ask what they could do. The Dean of the Daytime MBA program, Russ Morgan, stopped me in the hall to voice support and chat about the good things he had heard about the effort.

I was blown away—but I shouldn’t have been because this is Fuqua. This is the community I bought into, it’s the community I’m glad I invested in. But most of all, I’m proud to know that even though I didn’t come from a business background, everyone treats me as a valuable member of the team. The end of this story came a few days later, at Fuqua Friday. Those who signed up for the photo shoot had all secretly coordinated to stage a special “thank you.”

You don’t necessarily realize how much your classmates mean to you until you’re confronted with the reality that you’d do pretty much anything to support them, and they would do anything to support you. That’s why I chose to pursue my MBA at Fuqua.

Hey,

I applied to Duke in December 2013 (Class of 2016). Got rejected w/o interview.
Will my old application be reviewed again with the current one? Will it have any impact on decision, if I drastically change my essays and career goals?

- cj


Would anyone like to help cyberjadugar with his question?

anupamgupta2112 Can you please share your valuable input(s) here.



Hi,
From what I understand, you are considered a re-applicant only if you have applied in the last two years(It could be three years. You should be able to check this online in the application). Since it will be 3 years for you, you might not be considered a re-applicant, and it will be up to you whether you want to even mention that you had applied.

I was a re-applicant as well. I applied for Class of 2017, did not get through, and yet got through this year. I think even drastically changing your goals does not affect your chances, it in fact shows that you are willing to course-correct, provided you think your goals in the earlier application were not relevant or achievable. Having said that, there are a lot of factors that make or break the application, as I am sure you have heard a lot. The re-applicant essay is a great way to showcase what you have improved on since you applied last.

Please check whether you will be considered a re-applicant based on their criteria, and only if required, tailor the re-applicant essay to give a better picture about your profile. Think of it as 2 additional pages to write about yourself, and trust me, more space in B-School applications is always a good thing! :D

I hope I answered your question. Feel free to reach out.

Reflecting on 2 Years at Fuqua [#permalink]

New post 03 Aug 2016, 09:00
FROM Fuqua Student Blogs: Reflecting on 2 Years at Fuqua
It’s hard to believe that I’m now a Fuqua alumna. It seems like such a short time ago that I was making the drive down from Rhode Island to North Carolina to start my business school journey.

In the months since graduation, family members, friends, and prospective students have asked me what I thought about my 2 years at Fuqua. Each time I’ve come up with different highlights, but at the root of it all, that time was truly a gift to myself.

Gift of Knowledge
One of the reasons I decided to go back to school was to fill some of the knowledge gaps I felt I had, especially around accounting, marketing, and finance. And while I may not remember all the concepts and cases we learned and discussed, I know that I’ve built a stronger foundation toward understanding business more holistically.

In addition, my experience through the Health Sector Management (HSM) certificate has broadened my view of the health care industry and granted me the opportunity to learn more about medical devices, patient education, and biotechnology, to name a few topics. I love that there is still so much to learn but thankful that Fuqua has helped me discover and develop new interests.

Gift of Experimentation
During our time at Fuqua, as a class we heard from several speakers emphasizing that business school was the time to try and fail at new things while within a safe bubble. I took that to heart and said yes to opportunities that I never thought I would.

One of the biggest highlights for me was serving as vice president of the Graduate and Professional Student Council (GPSC), which is the student government body for Duke’s 9 graduate and professional schools. This was an amazing opportunity to work with many different students and administrators across the broader Duke community while practicing leadership skills we had discussed at Fuqua.

Gift of Community and Family
I vividly remember attending the February 2014 Blue Devil Weekend and sitting in on a student panel. A fellow admitted student asked what ‘Team Fuqua’ meant to each panelist. One student told a story about a section of classmates coming together to put on a baby shower for one of its members. It made me feel like Fuqua wasn’t just a place for academics but a place where people truly care about one another and work together to achieve positive results.

Throughout my 2 years at Fuqua, I can recall so many times when fellow Fuquans came together to celebrate the successes, to brainstorm solutions to problems, and to provide comfort during the lows. I can truly say that I met and found friends for life.

At the end of it all, sometimes it’s difficult to put into words how incredible of an experience business school was beyond the academics and networking. So I’ll close with this. During our Fuqua Reflects photos, my friends and I chose this quote from the wise old bear, Winnie the Pooh: “There are friends, there is family, and then there are friends that become family.”

The video below was created as a “thank you” to alumni who donated to the school, and includes more highlights from Connie’s 2 years at Fuqua:

My pleasure Keats Happy to help out! It is fun, but it gets intense really fast, depending on whom you ask. The fact that I am in the Ford Library, between classes, as I type this, should give you a fair idea of the "fun" I am having. :)

All said and done, couldn't be more excited and already looking forward to welcoming a lot of folks next year!

Woah anupamgupta2112! We cannot thank you enough for the words of wisdom. Please if you can briefly talk about the orientation you had. Very briefly so that we as future applicants get some idea. Although I have read quite a few blogs on it, I'd love to learn about your take on the Fuqua Orientation :)

Absolutely. What I am going to do is, on the Ambassador thread, I will post more about my experience here, as I have it. I am hoping to put up a post on Orientation at Fuqua over this weekend, so anyone who wants to follow my journey through the FY can go through the below thread:

ambassador-program-fuqua-hear-from-current-students-alumni-222562.html

I will also try to answer the most commonly asked questions on this thread, and will try to get other FYs or SYs to pitch in, if I can round them up.

Hope this is helpful!

Fuqua - Admission Trends!



Hi Everyone, I am posting here an analysis of admission trends and acceptance chances at Fuqua based on our accumulated forum data of applicants. We have analysed our forum data of Fuqua applicants from 2012 to 2016 to determine acceptance chances by GMAT score, admission rounds, industry, etc. Since the data used for this analysis is self-reported, it's advised to use findings of this analysis with discretion. They are meant to give only a general idea of admission scenario at Fuqua. Don't presume that these findings will hold true all the time.

We would welcome any comments, opinions, suggestions or anything else that you might have to say about the findings of this analysis.


YOY Acceptance Rate and Avg GMAT of Applicants



  • We can see downward trend in YOY rate of acceptance; however, I would not infer too much from the steep decline of 8 percentage points from 2012 to 2014 as our BSchool system, which introduced in 2011, was new at that time and many applicants were not familiar with it. This is evident from the increase in number of applicants from 290 in 2012 to 544 in 2014.
  • Decrease in 6 percentage points from 2015 to 2016 is however a matter of concern. Fuqua's actual admission rate has also fallen from 25% to 23% during the same period.

Sample Size: 2179 Applicants
Image




Acceptance Rate by GMAT Score



  • I am quite surprised with this result. It shows that GMAT won't help much in increasing your acceptance chances beyond 700. We did not see such trend in our studies of other schools - ISB, LBS, Columbia, and Consortium.
  • This indicates that a high GMAT score is not necessarily an advantage and other factors of your application i.e. Essays, work experience, recommendations, post MBA goals, resume, etc, are equally important.

Sample Size: 1184 Applicants
Image




Acceptance Rate by Admission Round



Sample Size: 2175 Applicants
Image




Acceptance Rates of Applicants in Different Age Groups



Sample Size: 831 Applicants
Image




Acceptance rates of applicants from various industries



  • The first chart - line chart - shows acceptance rates of applicants from various industries and the pie chart next to it shows industry-wise allocation of applicants.

Sample Size: 1015 Applicants
Image

Image




Acceptance Rates of Applicants from Various Regions



Sample Size: 840 Applicants
Image


As I said earlier, we welcome your views, counter-views, suggestions, etc on the analysis. Thank you!

One of the Fuqua interns I worked with this summer told me that her friend got ding'd in EA when she likely would have had a better chance in R1 or R2, regardless of having more time to pump up her app. Lots of unknowns here, so hard to say, but I would imagine that more of the EA applicants have a solid, bulletproof story since they're committing upfront and know that Fuqua is for them.

Thanks for that. Going by the information charts posted above on this page, it appears that EA has a lower acceptance rate than R1 and R2. Probably because most applications by this point are a little undercooked.
However, the OP has advised using discretion as the info used on those charts is not validated by Fuqua.

I'm planning to apply in EA but am not sure about my level of prep. Maybe will have to defer to R1

Does anyone know what the questions for the recommenders look like?
