FYI: If you get invited for an interview tell them to fuck off.


Sentry did you actually fly/drive to Duke for the interview? If they waitlisted you after that, then yes, they can fuck off. That is bullshit.

so below 25th and above 75th.


3.66 176 is also "good for" priority reserve, for what it's worth.

We can at least be waitlist buddies, or something, yeah? That makes it better? (I think we both know we weren't expecting to go to Duke anyhow, right?)

Have they ever outright rejected a PT invite applicant?


According to LSN exactly one person last year got an outright PT rejection.

That's brutal. Did it not go well? Sorry for making you keep answering questions; I'm just shocked they would reserve someone who flew out there to interview.

I thought it went pretty well. To be honest it didn't seem like they were very well prepared for it. They just asked completely basic questions. I don't know what they were hoping to get out of it...

AHH! My status checker reads Decision Made. Watch for email!

Submitted 9/13, Complete 9/14, Under Review 9/28.

I'm non-PT but I wanted to ask - Does decision made mean I got in? If I was gonna be waitlisted or rejected, it would just say that on the status checker right?

lolol

Also: decision made simply means: decision made. Why would you assume acceptance from that?

Well according to the decision date charts, the first RD non-PT waitlists last year were at the end of november. For PT, you guys can get priority reserve because they have to get back to you within 10 days. But as i'm not PT, if they wanted to WL me, wouldn't they at least wait til apps from the October takers were in? Also, I'm on the nonPT thread as well, and I don't think anyone on TLS that isn't PT has been WLed yet this cycle. Maybe I'll be the first? lol :\

You should check to see if you have this.

In the mailings column, I just saw a new entry: Welcome packet 11/03/2010

Good sign, yes?

No no no, I was just considering the hilarity of a welcome packet for waitlisted applicants. You guys are in for sure.
