Did you email them the financial aid form?

PT Complete on 1/24
UR1 1/27
UR2 1/31

My 10th day is this coming Monday so I will likely not hear until then (although from this thread it sounds like they do make decisions on the weekend).

I am a splitter. +5 over 75 LSAT, -.1 below 25 GPA.



Today is my 10th day. Still no word. I am expecting a WL or ding as it seems they are preferring GPA to LSAT this cycle and people with similar numbers to me have been WL or ding.

Still waiting on my RD decision. Been about 3 months since submit. Have lots of non-PT, RD people been hearing back?

There have been a few ITT here and there towards the end of January. I've been UR since mid December.

Would love to hit UR. Still at complete, tho just submitted in early January. I'm not terribly optimistic as a super-splitter, but I went there for undergrad and would love to return. I'm pretty upset that they closed the Dillo tho....

Anyone from PR hear anything yet? I know last year they gave out on-campus interviews to a couple of people around this time. :)

Checking in. File went complete for RD back on 11/25. Finally went UR 1/21.

I've been a lurker for months but the wait has gotten to me so deeply that I finally had to voice my impatience here! I'm a reverse splitter with pretty strong softs (at least I think/hope so). From what I've seen here I've started hoping that my high GPA will give me some pull but I guess we shall see. Duke has become my number 1 so I'm getting antsy DAHH.

Any guesses as to when I can expect UR2 and how far the jump is for UR2 to a decision?

I've been UR since 12/9, I think they're just working their way through PT people first.

Has anyone taken more than 10 days on PT?

Today is my tenth day for PT and still no word. I hope that doesn't mean bad news...

And just like that... in via email. Very excited. No word on financial aid, the email encouraged me to apply for scholarships via a separate application. Good luck to everyone still waiting. Hats off to the admissions office at Duke. They really work 24/7
