Mine hasn't changed.... I fear this does not bode well for me. I'll remain hopeful till the end though! Duke's definitely a reach, but it would be a dream come true!

"We have completed a thorough review of your application, and would like to offer you a space on our Priority Reserve list for the 2013 entering class."

:(

Wrote no Why Duke. Submitted the 18th of November.

I'm absolutely shocked you got wait-listed. Tough break man. I'm sure you'll get into a ton of the other schools you applied to.

Thanks!

After further inspection of LSN and previous years, I am feeling better.



Goodluck to everyone still waiting to hear back.

Ugh, under review since 10/29, listlessly checking my status everyday knowing there will be no movement:

I'm trying to convince myself that just because I wasn't picked for PT doesn't mean that they disliked me before I even sent in my app.

I JUST GOT IN! First acceptance!

PT, submitted 11/21 or 11/22, 172 and a 3.69. Wrote a Why Duke. Some fun softs but nothing truly special and average to pretty good letters of rec, as a guess.

I just realized that we have similar numbers and applied similar schools almost on the same day. Now I'm worried.

I should probably just go ahead and write a Why Duke. I'm in RD track and my file hasn't even been under review yet.

Not true! It's technically not even 10 days yet for you, plus there's possible delays due to Thanksgiving weekend and any number of other reasons. Fingers are crossed for both of you guys, definitely wait a few more days before that thought even crosses your mind based on decision turnaround.
