Same here. RD non-PT. Anyone know how long they're taking on non-PT applications?

Much, much longer than 10 days. As far as I can tell, only a couple of people on TLS/LSN have been accepted RD, and they both applied very early.


My file has been under review since 10/24 (RD) and I applied on the first or second day you could. I'm also a splitter, so this doesn't surprise me at all. It's comforting to hear though that almost no one has been admitted FT, RD.

I think you have nothing to worry about, yet.

Re-reading my previous posts, I sound a bit complainey, but waiting until December is really not that bad - some schools make everyone wait until January.

Ugh mine went complete on the 17th, PT, and the dates for people getting decisions are getting closer and closer to mine. This waiting is killing me. I might just have to put myself in an alcohol-induced coma over winter break to keep from going insane!

Submitted/complete/UR: 11/14 (Priority Track)
Decision: 11/22 !!

I was worried yesterday as my status stuck at "UR" since 11/16 and I did not send in a "Why Duke" essay.


Congrats!

In today!

Applied RD in the first week of October, and got an email today. I'm not in the US right now, so the snail mail is probably really lagging behind.

LSP had me at a DENY at Duke, so ha! :D

Awesome, congrats! I am RD (and a longshot)... I went under review 11/7, but really want Duke. If you don't mind sharing, could you share your status date (ie. when you went under review, etc.), and stats? PM would work too.

I went Under Review on 11/14, and now am once again Under Review today, the 22nd.

What's the deal?

Hm, I'm 171/3.53 and got a fall grade request. Interesting. I didn't like a why duke or have a DS though, so I guess that got you in. Congrats though!!

They found your file so interesting, they had to read it twice!

Haha. I don't know... That would be a novel thought though. "Can't get enough of that one, gotta read it again!"

I would give them a call and ask. I know sometimes it took a couple hours (people had their checkers update in the morning and it took until the evening to receive their emails) but overnight seems extreme.

I was complete for RD on 10/31 and my status checker said that I was "ready for review" until I went under review on the 14th. For RD applicants I think it just takes some time for them to move people through the queue. They must be focusing a significant amount of their time and energy on the PT people in order to render so many decisions within 10 days. I'm sure you'll be under review soon enough. Now what that means in terms of actually getting a decision from Duke, I have no idea.
