Good thinking there. I just received the "waitlist update" email they sent out an hour ago. Glad to know that they still have not forgotten me.

I think if you have been fairly active in staying in contact with them (e.g. sending LOCIs or new recs or why essays), maybe they would not need to send that email to gauge your interest again. I did not receive an email from Gtown, and they acknowledged having received my LOCI three days ago. The waitlist email could be just sent to all priority reserve people, because one mine it specifically writes "priority reserve." Maybe just not that many people are on PR.

In the email, it says even if i sent LOCI before, i still need to complete the form of interest. So maybe be there is not many people are on PR.

I think they are just reviewing PR people first. And if they cannot fill the class with PR people, they will delve into the waitlist.

Maybe we could do a new poll to see how many people are waitlisted vs. waiting vs. have a decision? I think everyone waiting got the email for sure, because it says the survey is required.

I don't even know who the OP of this is anymore. I thought proteinshake gave it up but he might still have it.

new pole

and I'm sure everyone gets the email, it'd make no sense for only some people to get it.

Did everyone get the WL confirmation email?

The wording "coming days" make me hopeful even if they didn't say decisions.

Hey All!

I'm on the PR list and received both the email to confirm my continued interest and a follow-up to confirm receipt. It seems as if they are moving along to take people off the PR and WL.

Wish the best for all!

Yes, the same. I got the response from Mark Hill that thanked me for continuing on PR. I guess they have sent it to everyone then.

Why don't we have a Duke Waitlist thread?
