Mr. Backyard Homesteader

About Me:

I am half-Cuban, engaged, and homestead for fun. At work, I previously analyzed and designed improvements to our call center operations. On my new team, I will be creating and guiding a new product to rollout. I’ve grown and realized I desire an MBA in order to pivot into entrepreneurship. However, I lack needed skills due to my undergrad major.

    I can’t imagine that you won’t knock it out of the park during your interview. You pretty much check off all the boxes for an admit from Duke, from your very strong stats to your accomplishments at work. Unless you freeze during that interview, you should be welcomed to Fuqua with open arms. If I have one concern, it may be that I don’t see things in your profile that reinforce your goal of fostering community environment, a key attribute of the Team Fuqua culture at Duke. I would be surprised if the evidence isn’t there but you need to show it.
