Yes, I think all of us were PT applicants. Correct me if I am wrong other admits!

Applied today- how long does completion usually take? Applied with PT, so wondering when I should expect a decision.

:( I'm PT; my application has a "current status date" of November 12, application date of November 5, and all transcripts and recommendations recognized by LSAC since AT THE VERY LATEST October 29. Saw them at the LSAC forum, received personalized letter, and everything...

WHY HAVE I HEARD NOTHING!!!! Totally turning me into a nervous wreck. Two days until maximum response with PT?!?!

3.8 from Penn/173

Just got put on the Priority Reserve from Priority track

3.62/177.

Very disappointed, I hope this is not a harbinger of things to come.

Thank you for adding this.

Not that this adds to my nervosa or anything...

PLEASE - I just want to get into a school - I wouldn't have any expectations except that they promised they'd respond.

Don't despair if you get waitlist/Priority Reserve. It is not a graveyard. People WILL get in off of them, and it does not mean you will get no money.

If Duke is what you want, just keep stressing your interest to them. Be as specific with your reasons as possible.

PT day 8 (not counting the day I went complete), still nothing. similar profile to you (slightly better).


I have now removed my drunken outburst. Sorry about that luckystar! I know we're all in this together - waiting sucks.

I'm so glad your profile is better. It's very important to me. I'm amazed at your humility and I wish I were just like you. Thank god for your status - and I'm glad that, like you, I haven't heard from Duke also. I love hearing your experience, but your conditional clauses may/may not be slightly worrisome! But - no worries! You're such as sweetheart!


You're a little ray of sunshine

Not sure what's happening here, but what I was going for was that if someone who had a better profile hasn't heard back yet on day 8 either, then you should have nothing to worry about. if someone with a better statistical profile hasn't gotten an acceptance, it probably just means they haven't gotten around to them yet, rather than anything bad about your particular app


You made sense, luckystar.

Did write onebut after I submitted the app, and I don't think it was very convincing. It was about 2 paragraphs long

Maybe there's just something wrong with my app, I don't think you guys should be too concerned

what? ok pretend kevin durant is competitive for all-nba first team but doesn't know whether he's gonna get it. the fact that lebron hasn't been tapped for it yet should tell him that the nba just isn't ready to announce it, since that's a more plausible explanation than KD thinking he won't make it


I don't think LEP was sarcastic. I think he was sincere when he said that you made sense

Also, since I'm from Boston maybe Duke thinks I have a realistic chance of getting into Harvard based on my numbers and overall application and I would never come to Duke(this is my very very very optimistic view)

if anything it's YP, given I got in at below both your numbers from much worse UG
I'm sure you could convince them to admit if you submitted a LOCI or something

or there is always the possibillity that other aspects of your transcript are SPS
