i didn't get PT, either, though my numbers are up there. maybe i submitted too early after getting my lsat score?

regardless, i'm starting to think that RD may be a blessing in disguise. they haven't hesitated to waitlist strong PT apps, because they only have a few days to make a decision. at least with RD, you know they are giving your file the best consideration they can. i'm impatient for a decision, and i know a waitlist is still likely, but i'm always of the opinion that no news is good news.

Congrats!

I got in via email yesterday as well. As someone already mentioned most of the admits on LSN are 170+... so perhaps they are working their way down. I had a why duke.

Yes 169's!!! I'm hoping my update to 1/24 was a good thing, and I'll get the email soon. I'm not super confident though...

Thanks guys for the congratulations. 8) Good luck to all! I am excited to be accepted though I am likely not going to attend. I visited duke and loved it but I have some other personal factors which will likely sway me in a different direction. Not sure yet though.

Anyway--- to those who asked I was complete 11/4 and and UR 11/28. Also in case this matters, my stats are in my profile and my gpa is on the higher side of 3.9.

I haven't checked the duke status checker for a while but I recently checked it and it said my Current Status Date was 1/27/2012. Is the norm that it gets updated every day? (I assumed it did not get updated today since today was part of a weekend.)

It doesn't update every day. There should be 2 updates before you get a "decision made" status. What were your complete/UR dates?

Good luck!
