Too bad no scholly.


You apply for those separately in December, they don't give them out with admissions decisions now.

Also, I got the mailed acceptance package today after the e-mail a few weeks ago, definitely reminded me of how much I love Duke!


On the status checker, when did it say your acceptance package was mailed?


It said it was mailed Nov. 9th, but I just received it today. I got my e-mail on Nov. 7th, though.


I got my email Nov 9th and I checked today and it said it would be mailed Nov 17th. I guess I'll get it next week.

so my status now is "ready for review". what is next step? or there is no next step and notification will come?



The next step is "File Under Review"


Thx!! :)
Duke is super fast, at least fastest in all schools I apply for.

I submitted PT and was told my file was complete on 10/19/11. On 10/27/11 they told me that they required something else to make a determination (not grade-related). I expect they should have the information they are waiting for any day now. Once they receive the additional information, do I start a whole new 10 day period to find out or do they now only have a few days to get the decision to me after they receive the required info?

Based on my experience, should be just a day or 2 after they get it.

Just one day behind you - went complete 11/10. Was surprised to see that my status date changed yesterday from 11/11 to 11/16 (both "file under review").

Day 9 here and I'm definitely starting to get antsy. I'm in the middle of writing a paper and I swear I can't stop refreshing the status checker -- productivity gone.

Does that status checker typically go under review twice (as in date changes twice)? I'm RD and have been under review since 11/7...

Anybody else look at your Why Duke? Essay AFTER submitting your application. Can't seem to stop myself despite knowing I stand to gain nothing by nitpicking something I can't change.

I had to force myself not to look at anything after submitting it for fear of being unbelievably upset.

If that works out, please let me borrow? I have some life problems that I need to work out :)
