URM? great softs?

I'm 166, 3.8...PLEASE let this be some hope.


I might be able to give you some hope--not a URM and I don't think my softs were too great. I did apply ED however, and I think that might have done the trick. Good luck!

Got waitlisted as of yesterday. I guess with a 164/3.87 I could be happy it wasn't a straight up denial (I applied PT). I'm trying to decide if I should wait until I start hearing back from other schools (BU, BC, Fordham, Emory, some safeties) to see their offers before sending a LOCI to Duke. I'm assuming if I am admitted I'll pay sticker (doubt they will offer me any money considering my numbers).

Trade for cheezburgers?

I put both merit and need (Ill take money any way I can get it). I'm not sure how seriously they would take parent's information for a grow'd up candidate.

I'm putting both. And I don't know why they want to know my parent's income given that I haven't been a dependent since 2002, but I will do so. What harm can it do?

Not sure why I even check my status checker or this board anymore...the status never changes and this board is only moving for PT invitees.

I got in yesterday and I was not PT!

On a separate note - what is the best way to get from DC to Durham? PM me if you want to split a zipcar...

Meh, TITCR. I haven't even gone UR and I'm substantially over both medians (though not in YP territory, esp. since I wrote a Why Duke).

Some hope! Unfortunately though, I'm not even UR yet. Congrats, BTW!

Maybe you've already answered this, but how long had you been waiting before you got your decision?

Anyone else's status checker update today? I know it doesn't mean anything. Just thought I'd ask for the heck of it.

Has Duke rejected applicants yet? I've been UR since 11/16 and fully expect to get dinged... I just wish they would get it over with.

I think the only rejections were ED folks, but I could be wrong. I'm in the same boat with you (expecting a ding anytime). That's why I was asking about any other status checkers updates.

Not mine. They have another 2-3 days to get me a decision.
