Does anyone know if they count the day your app went complete as day 1 or is it 10 days after your app goes complete? My app went complete the morning of 9/25 and I don't know if I am on day 7 or day 8 now :)


The email says you're guaranteed a response "within ten days of completing your file" so I counted the day I submitted my file (9/25 also) as Day 0, but I was also confused on how to count my days. I think we're on Day 7, and we'll get our answer on Friday or Saturday

Yup, my "current status date" changed from 9/27 to 10/2 this morning. Submitted 9/25, complete "mailing date" is listed as 9/26. Don't know whether to count the 26th...or not...I submitted early that morning, so I'm either on Day 6 or Day 7; going to assume it's Day 7 though!

When have people been finding out after the status checker changes?

Ahhh I can't imagine what waiting out the rest of this cycle is going to be like...just from this first one! Also GL to everyone who's taking/retaking in October! Seems like I'll probably find out from Duke that night after I take it...

No sleep last night!
It could also be day 9, if duke decides to go with ten days after instead of within ten days.

Haha same here, I keep having dreams about it. I know, that's what I was thinking too..I swear the day you go complete should count though, especially because we went complete in the morning!

If you think you're going insane now, just wait till it changes to "Decision Made: Watch for Email".

Blah, I can imagine...at least at that point I can stop refreshing both my email and status checker page...

Thought I'd join the freak-out fest with you guys. My PT app went complete early. I'm thinking Friday is most likely? I mean... Are they working Saturdays?

Yeah, weekends are supposed to count in the 10 days...I went complete 9/24 and am pretty sure I'll hear something today, so I would also guess Friday for those who went complete 9/25.

Just a head-up, my status said "decision made watch for email" from about 4:00 PM till the acceptance finally came at 12:15 at night. So don't go driving yourself crazy refreshing the email every 3 seconds (wish I knew this beforehand).

Me too :shock:

ETA: the top of my duke status check says "We appreciate your continued interest in Duke Law School.
If you have additional/updated material, please submit by email (admissions@law.duke.edu) or U.S. postal mail"

I feel like this means waitlist.....

Anyone who got accepted see something else?

Don't lose hope wsparker :wink: . It says that statement at the top of my status checker and I'm still under review. I think it has been there all along! You are probably just over-analyzing at this point.

And wsparker it still has that message on the top of my status checker as well so don't worry. I am at work but I don't know how much I am going to get done the next couple of hours with the constant email checking :lol:
