UR since 10/31 here


Two quick questions.

When did you submit?

And does it say complete ready for UR or just UR?

Submitted. One of my top picks, especially with some potential money in play.

Anyone know the time frame they usually send emails? I’m on day 10 and can’t stop refreshing my email. This will be my first decision so I’m understandably anxious. 168 3.94 for reference.

My day 10 was also a Sunday and I got my email a little after 6 PM!

turn on auto-refresh and push notifications on your phone, that way it'll just pop up on when you get the email. but you'll probably get it around 6.

The bolded saved me a lot of wasted time refreshing on both Duke decision day and grey day. Highly recommend it.

And yeah, it'll probably come around 6 ET. Good luck!

Not knocking OP, but his/her 168 isn't a YP. Agreed that a Why Duke would still help though

+1. I don't think this is YP (sorry). I was admitted with 171/3.95 (wrote a why Duke).

Two questions
1. Do all PT waitlistees get Priority Reserve or do some get on the regular wait-list?
2. is there any point in sending a LOCI or any other additional material at this point in the cycle? I'm assuming they aren't taking anyone off either waitlists until april-ish

4 more points and he's a Mordecai contender.

Once you entered "under review" how long did it take for most you to hear back? (Not PT)

As far as I can tell, only PT ppl have heard back. Based on last year's thread, most non-PT people had to wait til Jan/Feb regardless of when they went UR.

My 10 day PT should be today (I went PT complete on 10/27). Any clue on when emails usually get sent out?

I got mine around six. Some people have gotten the email earlier, some people have gotten the email much later. I think it really depends on how many applicants the admissions committee needs to respond to that day.

Ah good, so it's as bad a grey day, haha. Oh well, guess I'll just do what any rational person would do - sit here and constantly refresh my email and status checker.

Thanks for the info!

Priority waitlisted. Pretty sure it's YP, didn't write a Why Duke yet. Oh well. It would have been nice to get my first acceptance in, but I guess I can always write a LOCI later if things don't work out otherwise.

Complete 10/30 email @4pm today.
