Anyone know how long that email takes?

I think it varies quite a bit. Mine took a little over an hour, but evidently it can take much longer.

Any idea how long the typical review time is for those that aren't using priority track. I went complete on 12/17. Don't expect a response before the holidays, but curious.

I'm still sitting at "ready for review" since completion on 11/19.

Come on, Duke, doing something for us non-ED non-PTers~ I would have loved to submit PT but you didn't invite me! I'm not feeling any alum love here. :(

Don't blame Duke. You know you were just waiting for an excuse. I know from experience.

ETA: She looks awfully cute for someone in such disarray.

Does anyone know if Duke gives a stipend to come check out the school? Duke is one of my top 2 schools ATM but I live thousands of miles away...

Pretty sure they do, depends on how far away you live. If you're as far away as you say then I think they will reimburse you 300 to go to ASW. You should ask them to be sure though.

Probably a silly question, but for those admitted applying for financial aid will we have to disclose our parents' income? Thanks

Good luck to everyone who has yet to hear back!

Ditto. I'm sure they will review us non-PT RDers with the same care as anyone else, but I'm starting to have these irrational thoughts that they'll treat us like second-class citizens. At least I hope that thought is irrational. Duke, y u no love me? :cry:

Me too! Plus I'm at one of their 75th percentiles and above the other so I am trying not to feel like they didn't PT me for personal reasons. I keep fearing that the seats will be full and all the $$ distributed before they even see my app. :lol: :?

PT. 169/3.6 GPA. Decent softs but honestly, I think my "Why Duke" is the reason I got in.
