I'm not a frequent poster but my anxiety is taking over and now I need some opinions:
Okay, so my file was "under review" 11/12 and then changed to "under review" 11/28....and then nothing. I know that we established that date changes meant a decision was close (I think someone said that it meant your file was going into final review) but this is like 3 days out and no news. Anyone else have their date change more than once or take longer than 3 days to get a decision after a date change?
I'm not banking on getting into Duke so it could be that I was reject and they are waiting to send out rejections later....perhaps?


I had the same thing happen on the 27th. Not sure what it means, but at least we are closer to getting a decision right?


Mine updated to Under Review 11/25 after ebing under review for awhile. I haven't heard anything. I am also ED.


Mine was the exact same...I'm ED and the Under Review date updated on 11/25. I guess it's only been about a working week, but it feels like F-O-R-E-V-E-R. Good luck!

However, I REALLY REALLY want to be this guy right now with a couple of schools. Anyone else?

Dear Duke,
Please review my application! I love your school!!

Signed,
Your BFF, danidancer


I've been under review since 10/19! Going to guess that means I'm in the first batch of rejections.

Just got the Mordecai e-mail / invitation to interview on campus (accepted RD a week ago). Has anyone figured out how many invitations go out? Duke's website said typically 4-8 students will enroll with this scholarship.

Yup - I was PT but forgot I had to register for it. I realized it two days ago. Reply yesterday. Not sure if it was related, but certainly possible.

Congrats! You have to think that anyone who gets the Mordecai can enroll in a higher ranked school with more money, so I don't know how great their yield could be.

I just passed the one month mark of being under review, i.e. don't hold your breath.

Duke admissions really seems to be on top of its game - applied yesterday, application complete this morning, and now under review.

So I guess the 10 day mark starts now (PT).

It's starting to get pretty annoying to see people that went complete almost a month after I did get decisions before I even go under review. I'm not PT, but my numbers equal "Admit" on LSP and constantly getting leapfrogged is leaving a bitter taste in my mouth.

I'm not even saying I need a decision, but some movement would be nice.

Just got the acceptance package about a week after the email. The cool lanyard everyone was talking about sucks, but the duke law bookmark is the tits. Thing is seriously sick.
