Those who are RD and borderline have no way to speculate when their decision will come nor do they have a way to speculate what their decision will be. Their decision will just be rendered at some point over the next several weeks.


Seems to be the case from what I can tell.

Haha, do it! It is a great distraction.

Looks like a few pages back there were instances of people going UR and getting a decision same day, but others have had to wait forever after the change.

It wouldn't be in keeping with my cycle to hear back soon, so I'm assuming I'll get a WL in 8 weeks.

Any inklings as to what it means that I've now been UR2 for a week (after being UR1 for 3 months)?

I'm getting the feeling that it's not good...

Just accepted via email! JD/MS program in Electrical and Computer Engineering
3.86/166

Why do I have to "apply for financial aid and scholarship assistance" to "be officially admitted"

For the record, I already did receive a response with a need-based grant offer (albeit a paltry one compared to the merit award) from one of my schools; need access submitted sometime last week. So need based grant does exist, and my family is relatively wealthy (I just personally am broke and made it clear my parents have no intention of helping pay for anything). Can't speak for Duke specifically though still waiting there but they did seem very, very persistent about the "need based" element.

Congratulations! When did you submit and go under review?

Got the 'Decision Rendered; watch for email' update in the afternoon and unsuccessfully checked my email compulsively for hours. So I decided to go get drunk, and when I came home I thought to check my spam folder, and there it was! Stoked! ...and also drunk.


I can't remember when I went under review, but I think it was mid-December maybe. And I had two updates, I believe. 1/10 and 1/21, and then the update yesterday. [/quote][/quote][/quote]


Has this pattern held for other RD folks? Under review, two date changes and then DLS?

I went straight from UR to Decision Rendered. Like literally same day.

What's the consensus on the advisability of visiting the school before receiving a decision? I'm going to be in the area over the weekend and early next week, and I was thinking about stopping by.

If I do, what's proper protocol? For what it's worth, I have veeeeeeery borderline numbers (in profile). Call ahead of time and let them know I'll be there? Ask if I can meet with someone in admissions? Stare longingly through the Dean's window and cram home made cookies under the door?

Halp halp, I'm a noob and I don't know what to do.

For Duke, only call ahead if you want to meet with someone. For tours or sitting in on a class, you just show up. I don't think they're open on the weekends, so you'd have to go early next week.

I'm probably going to a tour and sit in on a class early next week, too. I think the tours leave at 9:45 from the admissions office.
