your cycle is going better than mine, so you have given me a shred of hope, scarlet!

but no, you're right...

still sitting second UR 2/23/12, would love to here back today even if it's a WL...

to the posters above: you all look to me like you're unlikely to be dinged.

My cycle is, admittedly, going well. But I think the good karma that's been fostering me along is hitting it's ceiling with Duke. That being said, I think you have a shot!

Would you even attend Duke if you get in? It looks like you have Northwestern and UT Austin in the bag, and still a chance at Chicago.

Duke is my #1 because of geography + also because it's a great school.

I would definitely consider it. I live in Texas right now and need to get out ASAP, so applying to UT was really only a boon to family. In terms of regions, I want Chicago or the South. So, I guess I'm not sure, but it would definitely get ample consideration!

Geography is worth about 7 ranking spots to me. If Duke decides to un-waitlist me I think I'd go there over CCN barring some unfriendly $$ situation.

Geography means a lot. I have a wife and house in NC. If I don't get Duke I will probably drop 20-30 spots and go for the huge merit aid at WFU, and plan to practice in state.

Go Duke!

Is this bad news? Has it been the case that people updated on the same day are part of the same type of decision?

173 here, but with a weaker GPA...Also updated today. Definitely seems like a waitlist. Wonder if it'll be tomorrow.

Also updated today from 1/23 UR. My inclusion in this updating group is probably also bad news. I wouldn't mind a WL though.

anyone hearing anything?

still sitting with a second UR from a week ago, otherwise radio silence. Duke admissions is not getting any new applications at this point (past the submission deadline), so I'm wondering what is going on in Durham...
