I think most say they get the email in the evening.

Good Luck!



Thanks! I'll be SO great at waiting around by the time this cycle is over.


When did you go UR?

I believe it was on 1/14, but I'm not positive.

I was RFR around mid-December and went under review this week.


Hmmm, thanks. I've been RFR since 12/4, wondering if I should start worrying. Has anyone else been RFR since/before December without going UR?

1/12, but again, not 100% sure...I'm bad at this "keeping track of dates" game, haha.

Long way to go folks; UR 11/30 here and no changes since. Others have it even worse.

At least you're UR?? :? But yeah, I feel you. Best of luck, and may the process move swiftly (for better or worse) from here on out.

Dang, I submitted 1/12 too and instead of Decision Made I got a change in my UR date, so I guess I'm waitlisted or PR or whatever.

177/3.6. I am going to be a lonley yellow in a field of greens on LSN. I even wrote a Why Duke.

Any way I could figure out what the issue was?

Probably a bad sign for the rest of my apps.

Just wait for an email. The update could mean nothing.

i'm still UR, submitted 1/12 in the early AM. this is huge for me, as duke is high on my list and it'll make the wait for the rest of my cycle so much easier

That was my first reaction, but it seems like others who have had the same have all been PR'd.

Dang, PR'd? You're 6% better than me on LSP. A 'Why Duke' would have helped I think.

Has anyone who is not PT received any news in the last week or so???? This is getting a little ridiculous. I'm tired of hearing about people who submitted months after me getting their news in 10 days... and stressin that it takes the whole 10 days... really?!

mine updated yesterday and then went to decision made- will be notified soon TODAY.

ive been UR since late September so it safe to say that i got rejected or waitlisted?

EDIT: just got the email. WAITLIST. oh well. congrats to those accepted. it's definitely an honor to be admitted and im sure each of you are deserving.

To all non PT Duke applicants:

I'm sorry for holding you all up. I feel guilty now. But good luck, and I think your patience will pay off!

Nah, you know what, you go ahead and celebrate. You deserve it. Just hopefully I can join you in celebration for myself.

I'm waitlisted as well. No "why duke?" or anything extra, so I'm guessing that's why.

Submitted about a week after you, went UR in mid-December, nada since. I really wish they'd stop the PT program after December or so.
