Let me start my response by saying I have a 178 and a 3.95.


Fantastic.

I get the feeling I won't be going to the same school as bernaldiaz or elterrible.

Does anyone know what the medians happen to be for the class of 2015 and the 25th/75ths?

For those who have submitted their apps via PT and are wondering when they will hear back, just wanted to give a heads up that I got an acceptance email today after having submitted last Friday. Best of luck to all of those still waiting and for those still planning on applying!

I've been complete since Monday and UR since Tuesday morning (Accelerated ED). Any other Accelerated ED applicants currently "under review"?

I'm PT, but I've been UR since yesterday sometime. Frantically checking my status page with the hope that they'll want to clear off a bunch of apps before the weekend.

EDIT: For people who received acceptance mail packages, did you guys get a nice handwritten note at the end too?

Yea... but he referenced a really obscure/uninteresting part of my application that he "looked forward to learning more about", so I suspect it wasn't very well thought through.

A very nice touch, though. If nothing else, I'll feel really, really bad now if I end up attending some place besides Duke, because they've been so great in this process.


Same here. Well, not that it was uninteresting, but I got the feeling that it was just a matter of picking something out, and the prose was the same (looked forward to learning more about...) But yeah, I think it was a nice touch. My wife did an LLM at Duke, and she said everyone there is super, super nice.

My "under review" status date changed yesterday. I went complete on the 19th. Can anyone provide some anecdoctes as to how long it took them to get a decision after the date change? Does it mean anything?

I received the acceptance email on the 3rd business day after going Under Review. Granted, they probably had fewer apps to deal with then since I submitted day 1.

I *think* mine changed on Friday and then I got my decision on Tuesday. Look back earlier in the thread for my mini-freak out and you'll see my timeline with regard to that and those of others as well.

No movement for me either, today is day 8 since complete. They may deal with Accelerated ED differently than PT.

Looking at previous posts in this thread, it looks like around the 10th a few people had their under review dates changed, and got an acceptance on the 11th. This may bode well for those of us who had are dates changed yesterday.

This may be good news for me, I went under review initially on 9/20 and my date changed to 9/25 this morning. Here's to hoping!
