Hit with a Priority Reserve email today off of PT. 3.49, 173. Looks like its time for me to write that LOCI I never got around to...

So I got a Mordecai email, but I hear you have to pay to fly out? Just got a JS2 so very little incentive for me to do it... thoughts? :)

Depends on your goals but a Mordecai would be tough to turn down...

I have been complete since 11/4 (RD non PT) with no changes. I have not even gone under review. should I be concerned at this point?

Have any RD with an UR of 11/18 seen any movement lately? I checked the past few pages of the thread and it didn't seem like it.

I emailed Duke today, got an automated response saying don't expect an answer until January... I doubt there are a ton more decisions before the new year.

PT submitted 12/9 > PR email today. 3.91/175 but weak softs: I should look at this as YP rather than omens of a poor cycle to come, right? Right? :(

just wanted to say I'm impressed by Duke's adcomms. Already under review three days after sending my app and I'm not PT. Hoping these fast updates mean a fast decision. :)
