So I guess Complete Day does not count as Day 1 for PT? I went complete on the 11/11, and didn't hear anything yesterday. So... should be today!

More than 5 is frowned on by the elders :-)

In other news, OP ThetaX, are you still around? Can we pester you for polls?


Imagine the uproar if we found out that the adcom could see how many times we checked per day. Would it make you check more or less, you think?


I was thinking the same thing when I first submitted (see page 18 here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=214260&start=425)

Apparently they can see it, but I doubt that any adcomms actually care to track it


Great minds think alike, I guess? lol.

Got mine at 5:15 PM NZDT...which is 11:15 PM EST I think. So it seems like it could vary a lot.

Complete day did not count for me. I got the decision on the tenth day not including the day I went complete.

Congrats on your acceptance!

My complete date is also 11/11. Still under review on status checker so not really sure what's going on here.

So I think we can safely say that at least some of the PR are not YP. I sent a LOCI after I got put on PR and the guy even replied thanking me for the strong interest in Duke. More than a week and silence. If they were really YP, it would make sense to admit you now once you expressed interest, I think

Went complete today. PT. What kind of delay can we expect for our turkey-eating admissions committee? 1 day? 2 days? I can't stand much more!!!!

If I were you, I would think about it as a 13-day PT, to account for Wednesday/Thursday/Friday of Thanksgiving.

Actually, my app was sent and received on 11/5, but I had a minor C&F issue that required my UG institution to send a Dean's Letter. That took fooorreeverr, and I didn't go complete until this Monday.

Okay I heard from someone else who also went complete on Monday that their status date changed.

But, still not expecting decisions today.

Yeah, no way a decision is coming already. But the date changing is the ONLY status checker update I've had all day. So that's the excitement for today. ha
