Do you have any idea how long most schools keep you "under review?"

The OP has some graphs for Duke specifically, and the data is sourced from this spreadhseet (itself sourced from LSN and very generously compiled by shadowofjazz and LSATSCORES 2012).

The data for Duke is somewhat skewed, I imagine, on account of the Priority Track deal. I opted out of CRS so never got a PT invitation before submitting my app. I'll be waiting for a while, I imagine. I could call or e-mail and try to get it expedited, but I can't be bothered.

Have no problem with what other schools do, nor Duke for that matter. Just nervous about what is happening and I haven't heard from anyone else who has been at Under Review that long with PT

I am under review and have been for the same length of time as you. Also last year no one heard until like day 8 and then the people who hadn't heard by day 10 thought they were getting waitlisted but then most got in. Maybe instead of freaking out do a little research and try to put everything into perspective. Should help your mental state.

Mine just switched. 3.73/172. Decent softs, WE after graduation, incorporated Duke into PS.

To admits: Have they been sending notifications at the end of the day or throughout the day?

Mine just switched to decision made as well.

For those waiting, I was switched to "under review" on 9/5 when the first wave of acceptances went out, same as the previous two posters on this page I believe. So it seems like a 2 day lag between under review and decision email.
