I applied 2/14 with a PT invite. Went complete 2/17, and under review twice (2/19 and 2/25). Guessing I should be hearing back today, right? (Thought I read that a decision was rendered 10 days after going complete.)

Just hoping to be put on the PR waitlist, an acceptance does not seem very real given what we've seen on here lately for people far more qualified than me. Right above 25th LSAT/at median GPA, wrote Why Duke.

Decision made; watch for email


No email yet. Is this a rejection/WL or is this genuinely how it works?

Genuinely how it works. I got my acceptance just a few minutes after that status change. I know because I was refreshing like mad. :lol:

Waitlist. Was expecting this, but not the accompanying disappointment.

Did some research for distinctions b/t PR and normal waitlist. In for the long haul. Also edited the above, because apparently I couldn't form coherent sentences in my grief.

Welp, still at UR2. So much for that 7-10 day trend after going UR2 for RD applicants, at least for me.

I don't know how the people who have been waiting longer have kept their sanity.

Congrats.

Did you write a "Why Duke?"

We have similar numbers, but I was PT--->PR'd.

Right? I've been UR2 for almost 4 months.

Don't worry, it gets easier

Wait, wait, wait. Did you hear from Cal and Stanford before Duke's PT?

I knew you were gonna murder your cycle, but its fascinating watching how quickly you're doing it.

Four months?!? That's just cruel. Hang in there.

Haha. I submitted Duke about 2 weeks after Berkeley/Stanford. Honestly I feel like I lucked out. Even though I submitted late I got quick responses from 2 of probably my top 4 choices. Makes the rest of the cycle way less stressful.

I've been stuck at UR1 since 2/10 and applied back in December. Already heard back from every other school I applied to on that day except for Duke! Wish they would hurry it upppp
