I've inquired about when to expect a decision and I was told they are up 25% in applications. People who submitted apps a week ago are hearing back and most of the early apps are still waiting around.
I don't even get the point of priority track. No one is going to attend Duke based on the fact that they accepted them w/in 10 days and most schools take 8 weeks.
I'm actually curious as to why they do it. The only thing that clearly sticks out to me is that it might bump their app volume a bit. They also probably have a slightly better picture of what their incoming class is going to look like earlier in the cycle.
