I'm on the 10th day of PT as well (Complete 1/8 and 2nd UR 1/15). My status still says File Under Review.

I think I MIGHT have, although unintentionally. I sent an email asking for a fee waiver and was referred to the admissions director, who gave me a curious response. Curious in that it was not the usual "wait and see if we select you through CRS/ forward proof of financial burden/ sorry, no fee waiver for you." He told me that I would probably be getting a waiver when the CRS refers me but that he might be able to speed things up if I explain to him why I'm interested in Duke. I did and, lo and behold, PT invite a couple of days later.

Interesting things go on with this whole PT process.

I wonder what the wait time is for those who aren't under PT... (like me)

Similar here -- except I got the waiver and not the PT. Kind of sucks b/c I would definitely consider Duke, but I actually need to decide by Feb what I'm doing, and I've been at file complete for at least six weeks w/ no movement.

Anyone have a good read on timetable for non-PT early December completes? Looked through past years of LSN and it seemed like anywhere from now through April was in play.

You could always check last year's thread to get a rough estimate. If I had to guess, I'd say you will probably find out around the Feb LSAT administration date (give or take a week) or in late Feb/ early March. But that is just unfounded speculation.

Submitted first week of November and went UR 1/6...I wonder what the LSAT cut off was for PT. Not knowing until march or later would really suck in terms of housing, swagger, and sanity.

To my surprise, I was put on Priority Reserve. This freaks me out about the rest of my cycle because I thought I would have auto-admit numbers at Duke :shock:

How long did it take between when your status changed to Decision Sent to when you received an email with the decision?

It took mine about an hour and a half. Might have helped that I'm on the east coast?
