The fuqua FB group has over almost 500 members and at least 400 of them look like fresh admits . Stiff chances of converting to an admit . .. in a class of 440. Wish fuqua just dinged you .

FYI, a lot of people in the group might be current 1st/2nd year Fuqua students (probably there to connect with fresh admits/help answer questions) so I wouldn't read too much into the overall size of the facebook group.

Yea agree with Chanda here - I'd say 50% of those are admissions ambassadors and fellows.

Fuqua isn't one of those schools that converts a lot of the WL, but it does happen. All about showing Fuqua is your top school - this coming from a reapplicant

Congrats on getting an admit after getting denied the first time. It's always great to see grit winning the game.

Exactly, thats why I counted seperating those members. and came up with a 400ish out of 500 Number. .

Wouldn't think too much about the size of the FB group. Many, many of those members are current students.

I don't have statistics on WL conversion, but I can count at least 10 in my cohort section who I know made it into the class off the WL. Some of them were finding out as late as July, as well. Lots of time left!

Did anyone attend Duke MBA Webinar for Waitlisted Applicant seminar today held by Assistant Director of Admissions Lauren Sutherland . If so it will be really great if you can share insights or even better recording of session. I was registered for the event but somehow missed it.

My app status fro R2 shows "Not invited". And the letter says "It is possible that you would be invited to interview at a later stage in this round or in future rounds". Does it mean WL or Denied ?

Says not invited, but the letter says there's hope yet. The optimist in me wants to think 'waitlist', but the realist knows its a ding. Anyone have better insight into this?

Hi everyone,

Just curious, did any waitlisted applicants that had already interviewed in R1 receive an interview invite last night? I'm wondering if re-interviewing is common or if this is just some sort of weird portal glitch?

Hi.
I am wondering how does Duke inform students of their WL status? Do all those who are not invited to the interview are considered WL or do Duke update their status to WL or Rejected on the decision day?

I will appreciate your help in clearing that out.

I got an invite as well even though I already interviewed in R1. I'm hoping it's a glitch but I've sent an email to Adcom to confirm. I'll let you know if I hear anything back.

Doubtful. It doesn't look like any one has posted on Clear Admit. Following last year's results, they accept a small number from the WL at the same time they post decisions for the round. So, I don't expect anyone will hear back until at least March 15th, maybe a day sooner. Best of luck!

Did any of you submit updates since being waitlisted? If yes, did you receive an acknowledgment from the school?

I sent an update in early February and received a confirm email a few days later.

Anyone have any thoughts on the odds of scholarship funding for waitlisted applicants? Something tells me this is pretty rare.
