I think we have the same UR1 2/18 date and mine is still blank. Good luck if it does!

I'm UR1 2/15. Still no change. At this point, I think they're just going to wait until the last possible day to let us all know our fate. I'm not expecting an offer of admission at this point.

My application just went UR2 today. What have people's experience been with time frame for a decision being made after UR2?

Status changed to "Scholarship decision mailed 3/15". Scholarship app was received 2/22.... pretty fast turnaround. (Maybe it was an easy $0 decision)

I'm UR2 3/7 and no decision yet. From what I have seen, the timing has varied; some are quick, some take a bit longer.

Grats! Were you invited to interview or did you request one? Was it on-campus?

I was invited to interview. And yes, it was on campus. Best decision of my life to fly from CA for that :)

Grr... Just got put on Priority Reserve. Complete early January. 4.06/172.

Is this a YP? I didn't send a Why? essay with my app, but I did send a LOCI updating my app and addressing why Duke in mid-February. I'm pretty frustrated. I'm starting to think I'm going to be waitlisted at every school I thought I might get money from... I can't afford a T6 at sticker.

Definitely YP, in my opinion. I think if you show continued interest (maybe another LOCI reaffirming your interest post-PR?) you should have no problem getting off the reserve. I hear you --I'm becoming very bitter of the YP-ness at T7-14

beautiful thing about these YP waitlists is often if you demonstrate some form of commitment, you pop off in april or may with a huge scholarship that the pre-WL admits would die for
