LOL I've been at File Under Review since the first week of November


I've been under review since 9/28. I applied RD so they're in no hurry.

Glad to know I'm not the only one. I'm a long shot as it is.

I feel pretty alone on this thread - Early Decision, non-pt. Went UR twice (12/4 most recent). Has anyone else applied under a binding decision?

Got an email yesterday asking for my fall grades. Tbh, given that Duke's GPA averages are higher than Penn, UVA, and Mich, I'm not holding my breath.

What do you mean?

Duke's GPA median is 3.76, whereas Penn, UVA, and Mich are 3.87, 3.87, and 3.73 respectively (so Penn and UVA both beat Duke).

This person might have been looking at the 25th percentile GPA rather than median. Duke's 25th percentile GPA is higher than the 25th percentile of the other three.

Yes. Sorry, that was poorly phrased.

Anyone gotten that FinAid e-mail yet? Don't want to fall behind in Duke's process at all, and I haven't been active in this thread for awhile, so thought I'd ask!

I haven't received anything yet, either. I'm inclined to think they're just being slow about it. Glad to know I'm not the only one still waiting on it.

I got my acceptance folder in the mail this weekend - the acceptance letter mentioned that FinAid info would come out around January

I did. Which makes me worried that something went really really wrong.

I am RD and I just saw a "Decision made; watch for email" update in my status. I previously had an update on 12/5. I'll post an update when I get my actual decision, for any RD people who are hoping for decisions coming in soon.

Mind if I ask when you submitted your apps and when you went under review? Thanks!

Sure -- I submitted 11/2 (really early morning, so practically 11/1). My apologies, I can't seem to find an initial under review date, but I did have a 12/5 date and then the message today. Waiting to see what it is. I suppose it's too early for rejections?

ETA: In!

I applied RD and went complete 11/15. My status finally changed to UR today. Hopefully this means news will come RD applicants' way soon enough!

Went complete on 11/30 for PT. Got email today asking for more info on a few things in my app -- no decision. I'm not sure what to make of this, but my fingers are crossed! Duke is easily my top choice.

Finally went UR yesterday. I went complete 11/13. Hopefully RD applications are starting to get worked through.
