that's depressing, i'll be at day 10 monday so I was hoping to hear back tomorrow or something.

I got my request for an on campus interview ten days after going complete. It's been more than a week since I did my interview and I still haven't heard anything.

If I went under review on the 26th, but got a received email on the 21st and am PT, anyone have an idea when I should be hearing back? I'm guessing Monday?

Thanks!

You did the phone interview? Did it not go well / how long did it last? Sorry about the being reserved

That really, really sucks. Aren't your numbers above their 75th's, though, Sentry?

That really sucks...

Now I'm just thinking every (1) in my gmail inbox is an email from Duke. What are my chances of still hearing back tonight?

Sorry Sentry :( That's just plain evil of Duke, especially after all of that interview hoopla.
