Thank you, Richard. Actually, the STAR model (Situation-Task-Action-Result) really works when I prepare for the interview, and I think it helps me to explain a scenario both clearly and concisely.

Hey, david, glad to hear that the template helps you guys to prepare the interview.  Wish you all good luck!

Another tip I want to reiterate is that do write thanks note to your interviewer after the interview, to appreciate their time and input, that's very important business etique, do remember!

Best luck!

Hi Richard:

Nice to meet you here. Actually, I want to learn more about Duke and the life in Duke.  Would you please kindly talk about what is most special thing in Duke, for example the teaching style or the community? How does Duke differentiate from other B-school?  What is the best that Duke brings to you?

Thank you for your time! :)

Hi, Michaelle

Thanks for your interest in Duke!

Personally I believe Duke shares most merits that top b-schools have, such as rigorous training, international exposure, top-notch recruiting companies etc, and since I am only familiar with Duke rather than other schools, it's really hard for me to compare Duke with other b-schools.

Having said those, I still find one minor aspect that sets Duke apart from our major rivals.  Duke deploys the comprehensive philosophy in curriculum setting.  We have 4 terms throughout the year, 6 weeks for each term, so basically we can get touch with more subjects than peers.  You may argue that 6 weeks is really a short time to learn much about one course, but think another way, at least you put some effort to touch the previous unknown area. If you like it, you can find some more advanced course in future terms; if not, you can still learn some but get rid of the course just within 6 weeks.

For all other aspects, I still believe Duke shares similar features with peer schools.

Just my 2 cents, best luck on your application!

Today is the R1 result release day at Duke.  I asked admission office to call those admits from China but at least didn't find any name that is familiar with me.  David, sorry for your result (if it is waitlist, you may still have chance to get off).

This year MBA application is really tough.  Last term I learned why the admission office admitted 8 auditors for our class of 2009 from China, it was just because that class of 2007 did a great job in internship haunting, especially in financial service industry, so the admission office was encouraged to recruit more accounting/finance guy for 2009, admission office would absolutely think about whether we can get a good job offer after graduation.

So dear bbyers, if you are still waiting, be patient.  And also it's not becuase you are not outstanding, you are not excellent.  Not your essay's fault, not bby's either.  I personally believe it's just becuase of downside of market which negatively influence the job market.   Let's all pray that next year the economy will turn better.

See the whole application process as a journey to discover the ture you, then you will be winner! Application is not about all your life, Best wishes to all your current job, life and family.
