The following Duke / Fuqua interview report was submitted to Clear Admit by an Early Decision applicant. Good luck to them!
You show up on the admissions floor and sit in groups on the couches with the other people interviewing and a first-year student who you can direct questions to. Then the second-year students who are doing the interview walk over and start grabbing people and bring them into the interview rooms. The interview was very conversational but the interviewer had a structured agenda and made sure to keep to it.
