I got in back in October and it took over a week for them to mail it and then a few days to get out to the West Coast. I kind of think they might wait for a significant number of acceptances so they can ship them all at once. But it's one of the most exciting admit packets I've received though, so it's worth the wait! Congrats!!!
Thanks! I actually just got it (literally) about ten minutes ago! I proceeded to rip the envelope open when I saw it was from Duke. I got a lanyard and the little notepad
I also ordered a Duke hat from Lids. I figure even if I don't end up going there, it's still a super nice hat.
On another note, I'm a little confused... The admitted students website says:
"One-year admission deferment requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, but are usually granted. In addition, scholarship awards may also be deferred, especially if the request is made by June 10
Whereas, the deferrals section in the admitted (mail) packet says:
"Admission deferrals are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. In the past, one-year deferrals have been granted for medical reasons or to permit students to take advantage of an extraordinary opportunity, such as a Fulbright Scholarship. Requests must be submitted in writing. Check the admitted students website for information about how to request a deferral. Scholarship award offers are not deferred
What an odd discrepancy... I'll have to call them about that.
