Just checking in/first time using TLS!

I submitted my Duke PT application before Thanksgiving, and status checker just changed. So now playing the "awaiting email waiting game :/" not a very fun game...

Good luck, Whitey. What you need right now is some booze-fueled temporal distortion!

Do you think they invite December retakers for the Mordecai if the retake score is high enough? I got in with a 169, but retaking this weekend. Worried I'll be late to the scholarship party.

This is a paranoid person question. Is it customary to email them back/say anything to them after you've been accepted? (admitted priority track last week). All the sudden I'm imagining my acceptance being revoked and my spot taken because I didn't say anything lulz. Just hasn't sunk in and feels weird waiting around, for an email about schollys/financial aid.

You could send an email, it won't do anything but ease your mind though IMO.

Checking in. Duke is yet another reach for me, but I gotta take a crack at it! N.C. is a great state and Duke is a great school!

When should we expect to hear about financial awards from Duke (I got accepted in September). Just wondering since Michigans and UVAs are out
