I disagree. I've found the statistic to be closer to 65.8% in my research.

Well that's because you haven't come across the data from 1961-1965. I had trouble finding it myself. For whatever reason, the acceptance rate was significantly lower during those four years.

You're right. My mistake. At this rate, I'll never get that A in research skills.

Just noticed this for whoever was asking about why it said the app was incomplete. At the top of the status checker it has some information, in which it says: "Once all the required material has been received, your status will be updated the next business day."

So I am assuming tomorrow we will be downloaded and declared complete.

Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't notice that before, and I was wondering why my status checker said my application was incomplete.

Are most people who are applying now PT? I'm really glad Duke will let us know so quickly. Good luck everyone!

Just realized that I had to register for the priority track. Whoops! I wonder how long it will take to sync to LSAC.

Just wanna wish everyone good luck. I chose to ED to Duke last cycle over several of its peers (MVP), and I have absolutely no regrets. This really is an awesome place to be.

Just submitted. Kind of terrifying but I love PT! Thanks, Duke.

"Processing incomplete application" still here. Its a good way to give themselves a little buffer with the 10 days. I saw somewhere else that they said they can take 4-5 days before receiving your application so I would think even with PT it could be 14-15 days from submission. Still pretty good :)

Submitted. Decided not to wait on my third LoR, since I'm on PT and doubt they'll really be studying those too hard. Holy crap, this is real.

Rookie question: do you have to wait until your LORs are in to CAS in order to submit an app?

Good luck to you all! Sounds like they have some reading to do in the next few days.

FWIW - I skimmed the PT decision thread from last year HP kindly put in the OP. I know someone PM'd me asking a question about 10 business days, but it seems to be most got a decision in 10 days even if it was Priority Reserve (sorry I accidentally deleted the email on my phone). Some got their decisions in 2 days. So hopefully you'll all be getting good news this week (or next)!

I'm pretty sure you can submit the application even if your LORs are not yet processed through CAS. However, the application will not be considered "complete" until all parts are received by the school - including the LORs.
