Bump. Anyone?

It doesn't seem that way, it is that way, and the letter explains why. Is there a question here? Not trying to be rude, just trying to get a clear picture of what you're looking for.

I was PR'd too. Sent a LOCI shortly after, nothing since. I don't think I've heard of any movement so far off of it, but I could have overlooked it.


Hmm thanks for the info. I remember they mentioned an optional interview in my PR letter. I'm going to try to schedule one and see what happens.

I would seriously recommend that optional interview! I took advantage of it and got in off of PR with a GPA below the 25th.

And I also just got my scholarship in the mail! 54k total. I really wasn't expecting anything so I am absolutely thrilled and it makes Duke a lock in now. I'm officially attending Duke next year and couldn't be more excited!!!!

I was hoping dewdawn was making a joke. The alternative is that dewdawn evidently thought Duke may have just admitted everyone who applied.

I sent mine to the admissions email, and they replied saying they had added it to my file.

Also, I went UR2 today (UR1 3/1).. holdin' my breath!

Given the cost of living in NYC, it would be very difficult for me to rationalize NYU at sticker.

One of my best friends is finishing up at Duke, and the other one is at Michigan, and it's insane how they have these HUGE apartments (2 bedrooms), and pay around $650. That's how much the closet in my NY apartment would be. So I feel you on that cost of living... I lived in NY for undergrad and grad, and it's insane how much money I've spent on rent. And that's just in Queens, not near NYU which is prime Manhattan real estate. Congratulations on the scholly! :)

I was UR1 3/1 as well and received the waitlist email today. Bummed because I went to Duke for undergrad and really wanted to be back. Guess I need to start crafting a LOCI...

If you know where good 2 bedrooms for $650 are in Durham please let me know. I can't find anything that cheap!
