At this point, I'm not expecting a decision as I believe they've put me on the secret WL... so secret that I can't even know about it.

+1 to 11/30 and the secret WL. We may even need to start a Secret WL Club.


+1. UR 11/30, no news/status updates here either. I'm a joint JD/MA applicant. Mysterious!

We should be in the same batch. Hopefully there's good news in store for both of us.

Same, RFR since 1/4 (December retaker)...how long should I expect to wait for a decision? I don't expect to get in (just below both medians), but I don't know if that's considered auto-reject.

K. Bye.

Hey! I'm sorry - I didn't know about you. :( Please don't be mad...

What do you mean you haven't heard of me!?!? :lol:

please, don't apologize, I'm just playing. :D It's quite the name, what inspired your choice?



:) Well, I used to be a big fan of Greek mythology when I was younger, so it's inspired by Veritas who was the goddess of truth.

Hey,

I'm new to the Duke forum, I applied back in early November with what are probably reject numbers, 166/3.87. I haven't bothered staying on top of the app because I know its probably an auto-ding, however I have been "Under Review" since 12/29. I had a solid PS about sexual orientation and some impressive work I've done and wrote a "why duke" about their HIV clinic. I'm starting to wonder if I'm actually being considered because I've been under review for so long, or is this normal?

Cupid,

I wouldn't rule out that you're being considered, but for the record, I've been under review since 10/19

Actually, in Greek mythology, Veritas (the goddess of truth) was known as Aletheia ... but I like Veritas better. It's the same goddess, she just has multiple names ...

Lol, initech, you beat me. I was going to say I've been UR 11/30 with slightly below the borderline stats.

I wouldn't necessarily call you an auto-reject. you're a "consider" on LSP and above 75th GPA. Depending on your softs, PS and what particular types of people Duke is looking for, you definitely have a decent shot. Not sure how long people typically stay UR (for a while it seems like they were just plain waiting on RD applications while they reviewed the PT apps). I wouldn't start worrying just yet, I think they are just now seeing how the entire pool is shaping up and considering "mushy-middle" candidates.

Best of luck.

At least you wait and have a legit chance. Every day I get less and less confident in my credentials.

Not yet! I just read over the info sheet and it said they started reviewing the scholarship apps January 1 and will give offers on a rolling basis. Seeing as how I submitted mine in early October, I figure I should be among the first to hear. But nothing yet!
