how many days from complete did it take for you to go to UR2?


I went ur1 on 6/9 and ur2 in 6/13

they've probably already made a decision and can email you whenever they want but choose to make you sweat. at least that's what I like to picture them doing.


Thats what I think so too, but it worries me because I think if they had decided to accept me they would have sent it right away.


Pretty sure they've sent acceptances on the 10th day in at least a few instances this cycle. Don't think it's something to sweat.

The ten day window is not a bad sign at all. The only person I saw get a response under 10 days had a 4.0 and 178. Unless you have those stats expect Duke to take the full 10 on you

I really don't know why this person ever thought they were going to get a response under ten days. Ten days is so short, it's clearly the absolute shortest time they can guarantee a response. I would bet 90% of applicants get their response on day 10

Weird. Yeah, I only noticed it very late last night, but my time zone is 4 hours ahead. Not sure what time it changed, but status date still says 9/13. Nothing in the spam folder. :/

Day 10 and the status checker says "Decision made, watch for email." But there's no email...
