So Duke's wording on the Character and Fitness section is a little vague so thought I'd ask here - is there a need to disclose a noise violation? Duke requires an explanation from someone at my UG, but I already e-mailed them and they said I had nothing to disclose since it was a house rules violation. Also is a noise violation even a "Disciplinary conduct question?". Should I still err on the side of caution and disclose and ask my UG to submit a letter saying I have no record? Lmk, and thank you!!


i had to disclose a similarly minor thing to duke. my school had no record of it, so the deans cert thing said exactly that. if you got a warning or a sanction or whatever the language asks for, just disclose and explain what it was for. nobody will care


I also disclosed something that I just got a warning for that wasn't on my Dean Cert. I just noted in the language that it wasn't elevated to any official record and doesn't show up on my dean certification (which I still had my UG send clean) also yeah I'd probably disclose a noise violation as a conduct issue unless it was literally just an RA knocking and saying to keep it down

For PT people— how long did it take you to go from “decision made- watch for email” to actually getting an email? I’ve been waiting for like an hour, and wondering how anxiously I should be refreshing my email lol.

I waited about an hour but I've heard of people waiting several hours.

In at Duke! First admission of the cycle!

Applied PT, today is my 8th day since app went complete. Status tracker changed around 10:00am PST this morning, and just got the acceptance email now, 4.5 hours later.

Ha! Mine switched on a Friday around 4pm to decision made and I didn't get the email until around 2pm Saturday. I was seriously concerned I was going to have to wait until Monday.

Thanks!

Any UR2s out there for non-PT RD? Or any speculation on decision at this point? The old threads have seem to have mixed thoughts.

Are y’all considering “complete, ready for review” as UR1? That’s what mine says and it’s been like that since 11/14... or will it actually say “under review”?

From my understanding UR1 and UR2 both say under review, but the status date changes. That might not be correct though.

Does anyone know if Duke will sound out more PT invites after December LSAT scores are out?

I've been under review since 12/4.

I submitted 10/20.

Not sure if I am UR1 or UR2.

Wish me good luck!

In through PT. Took the full 10 days. Is there any reason to not consider a provisional acceptance to be a "real" acceptance? Has anyone ever not gotten in after getting a provisional?

Pretty sure everyone is "provisionally accepted."
