Yup. UR 1/25.

Number are 3.5/169, REALLY not expecting to get in. Then again someone with a 3.5x/169 got in last cycle.

That's what sucks about Duke ED...because its a relatively new program, and seemingly not very popular, there is SUCH a small sample to go by on LSN, that you really don't know whats gonna happen.

Any predictions on when the first Round II decisions will come out? I hope they don't make us wait until Monday.

I bet it's tomorrow or Friday. I'd be very surprised if they wait until Monday.

Any idea how they will inform us first? Email, I'd assume?

IIRC, acceptances are mixed between calls and e-mails. WLs, rejections, grade requests, and deferrals are all done through e-mail.

Well it doesn't seem like we have a very good sample size in this thread so I don't think there's much that can be made of it.



I just reallllly hope we don't have to wait this whole weekend, c'mon Duke!!

Man this is stressful, how long does it take to send an e-mail? Hopefully they're considering how they can properly congratulate us on our acceptances :D

Eh, they probably have to check their balance sheets to determine how much scholarship money they can dish out. Accounting can be tricky.

Edit: Wait, so is everyone getting this "watch for e-mail" status?

Damn. It worries me b/c you have the numbers to get in and I do not. So I think they are just going to ding us now and let you in, in the next couple of days. Does everyone's status check say decision rendered?

Can we still get deferred? Or are we guaranteed Acceptance, Waitlist or Rejection?

Same here, I just got the "decision made; watch for e-mail" update as well. I'm sure it's a rejection but it was worth a try!

Beachbum, I bet it's actually a good thing they haven't updated your status. Maybe you are one of the lucky ones who will get admitted?

BB you're definitely getting in or WL/def. Me and these other two posters, we're screwed.

I literally feel I have a 1/100 chance of getting in because of my LSAT. My status says the "decision made; watch for e-mail" which updated today ):
