Ok how do you get to speak directly with your Counselor over phone? My email did not include a phone number I could reach him on. I guess you just call the general number and ask for them by name?

Well, for the clowns that fail to notify schools that they're canceling their deposit, I would imagine the deadline to pay tuition is where the school gets a good idea of who's flaking on them.


When is the deadline to pay tuition, do you know?


I didn't apply to Duke, so I don't know, but for comparison, Johnson says their tuition bill will come online in mid July with orientation starting Aug 4.

I just called the main line and asked for her. Oh well, I am just hoping that she remembers my name when I reapply. Chances don't look good for WLers

Still nothing here...

I must be the last guy on someones list


To add, I have a buddy who got his MBA as wisconsin, and he's doing pretty well for himself (big 4 consulting). Seems like a great place to spend a few years, if that's where you end up going you'll be fine. Also, MUCH better football team, solid basketball, and solid hockey (no hockey at duke).

I just got the call from a 919 number and the guy on the line said "congrats, you are on the waitlist and we have an place available for you....and it's a 2 bedroom apartment you requested"...ahhh. The call was from the station 9 apartments. Worst feeling ever.

Haha. I was going to ask him to send a LOR on my behalf.

Well, hopefully, that was a trial run for the other 919 call.

Haha. Got the apartment. Now just need an admit and a room mate. Both are equally as important.

OMG! I would have fallen out of my chair with trepidation and then felt my gut rush out of me when I realized that it wasn't the call I was hoping for ha!

side note: i was perusing the other waitlist forums (Booth, HBS, etc etc) and I have to say, this one for Duke is definitely the most active in terms of number of posts!

Ha, well we have quite a crew here, but I will take partial blame for that.

Its been a good time, so much so that I've said goodbye at least 3 times now, and still just can't leave...

A threads activity is inversely proportional to the waitlist activity. Worst case scenario: if we don't get in, lot of us can potentially be classmates in the class of 2016. Win-win situation.

Oh highwyre, I think you're just addicted to GC (though the Duke forums are always the most chatty) :) You better stick around this fall wherever you end up at!

no no, lets talk in finalities at this point in the game. No lofty "wherever you end up" talk at this stage. I'm heading to cornell, I swear! :twisted: I'll be here, but I can't make any promises about my activity... Theres a difference between being checked out mentally at a job and being bombarded with team meetings, social events and... bleh.. accounting... :puke

(sidenote: still nothing from a counselor... lets hope they've finally cut me already...)

Nothing from a counselor for me either... Hopefully they are just trying to figure out which one of us to accept. :)

I was looking at the 2011 thread last night, and the last batch of counselor emails went out on the following Monday. I don't understand why the process takes so long. The letter hasn't changed at all in at least two years.
