Hmm I wonder how they process things since I applied 2 weeks earlier and still went under review after you (submitted 9/5, file complete 9/6, under review since 10/12)

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

Submitted 9/13, Complete 9/14, Under Review 9/28. RD, Non-PT

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?

Awesome, I bet it's good news.

I had a momentary freak out when I read all those 9s as 10s. I was like "but I submitted before him and I'm stull under review! WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!" And then I realized, no, you submitted like a month before me. Back to waiting. Sigh.

Yeah I don't think anyone on this thread has been WLed yet so fingers crossed. Hope I'm not the first! And according to the decision date charts from last year on TLS, the first waitlists were reported late November, probably after they started reviewing some October takers.

Yeah, waiting for Duke is torturous. Unlike most other schools, Duke decisions could come at any moment, keeping us constantly on edge!

Good luck everyone. Applied ED over the weekend and got my status checker today- hopefully I'll see you all in Durham next year.

Has anyone's status checker changed to "Fall Grades Requested"? I am a traditional splitter with a strong upward grade trend (gpa addendum included) and I am not sure if this is a good sign, a bad sign, or a neutral sign that just happens to lead to massive amounts of increased stress :?

Your status checker says that? Didn't know that was an option...

I'm pretty sure this just means they want to see your fall grades :)

+1. If anything, I definitely wouldn't take it as a bad sign :)

Haha yes I have gathered that much. I was more hoping for an anecdotal "this means they want you, but want to make sure your upward grade trend continues/your addendum explanation holds true" rather than a "it probably means you are on the fence and need to get a 4.0 this semester to have a shot"

Ok just noticed something.

In the mailings column, there's a new entry: Welcome packet 11/03/2010

Good sign, yes?
