Mine went out today too 0.o I got really scared because my status checker date didn't change but my mailings is updated.

Guess the hypothesis is holding (interviewed 1/26).

I don't know why i thought this day would alleviate my stress

Got a status checker update that says: Decision made; watch for email.


Has anyone received good news like this, or is this a negative?

EDIT: should've searched the thread first. I see people who have gotten admitted like this, but couldn't seem to find people who were WL or rejected after (the lack of followup posts may indicate either or neither). So I guess the real question is, do rejects/waitlists have the same status update?

so do you think someone who interviewed on the week of the 6th-10th will hear back next week or the week after?

Also interviewed 1/31 and am hoping for the next round. Do you know if we have to wait for next week, or are there multiple rounds in one week?

Does Duke only interview for scholarships or do you also need an interview to gain admission?

Just received my scholarship and like everyone else, I am pretty disappointed. LSAT >>> 75 and GPA > 25. Scholarship is less than $100,000 total. Dean Hoye said I interviewed very well (I say that for context not to brag), but I guess that didn't matter much? I'll try to negotiate with 120 from Michigan and 135 from UVA, but I'm not optimistic. Duke was one of my top choices :cry:

Got my scholarship letter, was in the range of what I expected to get but very close to the lesser end of the spectrum. Likely still going to be in Durham though!

Yay it looks like you got yours today as well! Mine was also in the range of what I expected (although I was greedily hoping for more) I'll need to see offers from other schools before I make a final decision though :(
