Nope. I live in GA so it really should've made it in two days. I think it'll come tomorrow though

Rando question:

I submitted (PT) on 2/1. They said decision in 10 days, but does that mean 10 business days or 10 calendar days? Today is the 9th day, but I assume they won't be doing anything over the weekend.

Status checker changed to 'decision made, watch for email' like, at least two hours ago.

Waiting and can't help biting my nails.
How long is the typical waiting time, though?

I'm in at UVA, but Duke is probably 1b with UVA in terms of realistic choices for me so I've been pretty active here.

I have a bad feelings I'm going to be hit with priority reserve but MyLSN gave me an 80% chance of acceptance so maybe I'm just being anxious for anxiety sake :|

turnaround is pretty quick. usually within a couple hours. there are probably outliers though.

Trying to keep it in the ACC obviously

+1 UR2 as of yesterday (2/9) and my message up top also changed to the same thing. It used to be something along the lines of "your application will go under review several times" and something about this being a rigorous process, if I'm remembering correctly...



I went UR2 on 2/6 and four days later still no notification.. Does this mean we will go for UR3?



I have the same message and I was waitlisted yesterday.

Waitlisted this morning!
