OK, I take this back. Based on LSN, Waitlist/Denies tend to find out in February while Accepts tend to find out in December( PTers) or January ("Regular" applicants). Let's hope to hear back in January!


January is going to be an AGONIZING month :cry:

I got in awhile ago through PT with 3.7 + 172/165 and no Why Duke essay...I'm surprised at the ppl being put on reserve in this thread.

Wow, amazing! Way to go!! That was a fast turnaround, but it doesn't look like you have PT numbers (no offense meant, neither do I). I am really hoping for the same.

Did you have any stand-out soft factors on your application? Anything else you think landed you in the admit pile at first review?

Yea, I got in with 3.9 + 173/163 and no Why Duke. It seems strange that some ppl with close numbers are now being put on reserve... maybe Duke's getting concerned about their yield?

Congrats! BTW, does anyone else have file complete or file under review, but nothing under the requirements list?

Yes, I have nothing under the requirements list and my "file is ready for review." I submitted a couple addendum, so I don't imagine this area is used for anything...

Question - On the day that you're supposed to hear via PT (10th day)....around what time should you expect to see your status checker change to some sort of "Decision Made"

???

Thanks.

Couldn't be any worse than December has been for me. I had 4 acceptances by the beginning of the month, but I haven't heard a peep since. I keep waiting for the floodgates of decisions to open.

wow this thread is starting to scare me. i went complete last wednesday, december 9th, under priority track. i am applying for the jd/llm summer start. does the ten day policy include weekends, or is it ten business days? the PT email just says ten days. aka, should i be hearing by tomorrow, or will i have to wait until next wednesday? argh this is terrifying.

Although I am not priority track, it seems to be 10 calendar days, not business days...some people have even received decision emails on Sunday nights when that is the 10th day.

Did anyone else recieve an e-mail for either an on-campus interview, or Priority Track Early Decison? Is this unusual?

I got it too. I feel like maybe this means that if you interview you might be in? Are you to go interview or do the Early Decision?
