Just had my interview on 9/27 as it was conducted on Skype. Met with Diane who is involved with admissions for their GEMBA program(Im applying to the EMBA program).

Interview was about 45 minutes long and consisted of the usual questions about my work history, current employer and position responsibilities as well as my goals for the MBA. Found it to be quite enjoyable.

Thanks discodv05 for sharing!

Good luck!

[quote="SSG21"]what does the following mean? Is it a soft reject or waitlisted?

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. If your interview status should change, our office will notify you directly.


Sounds like a waitlist to me.


Even I received the same mail. Not sure how to interpret it and what are the chances.


Remember that this was the status for interview intimation, and not a decision on your application.
This is not even a waitlist, as that constitutes an application decision.
They might still call you for an interview later on in this round, before they take a decision on your application.

I reached out to adcom and this is exactly what they said.

With that in mind, I'd say that we move on to other applications. I'm sure that in case of any change, we'll get an email from Fuqua.[/quote]

So what would stand on a better footing - waitlisted and pushed to succeeding rounds or this?

I applied EA so I was on-campus this week for my interview. It honestly went way better than I expected and my interviewer was really easy to talk to. Didn't get any curveball questions either. Time to count down to Oct 19...

Why is this thread so silent? Is it only I or everyone is noticing a substantial drop in Fuqua enthusiasm among applicants this year?

Hello, fellow applicant. I just hit the submit button an hour ago. Just have to say, Fuqua's fee waiver really helped me out. USD is really hard on the rupee right now.

I applied early action so just waiting for a decision next week! I’m guessing the forum is still pretty quiet since R1 applications were just due and EA candidates don’t really get formal interview invites (unless they are international), so, basically, no formal decision have been released from ad com. Good luck with your application!

I didn't know about Fuqua's fee waiver. I knew McComb had waived fee for round 1.

:lol: Good thing for you. I already applied to 4 schools, the sum of their app fees nearly equals a month salary in Morocco. Clearly, Fuqua's fee waiver comes really helpful for me too. :-D

I attended one of their webinars and got the waiver. If I remember correctly, there's one in late October. If you haven't already, I'd advise you to register for that webinar.
