Does the status checker actually say when the scholarship form was received? :shock: Or no? Because I only got an email confirmation.

I got an email, and a few days later, the status checker was updated to show the form received.

Omg. Does this mean they didn't receive it? They should have received it in November. :? *worries* Better go email them.

Eek mine was mailed too :shock: I guess they didn't just forget about me

My form was received 12/3


I see a big, big number in your future.


Thanks for the vote of confidence :)

That would be amazing, but I'm not getting my hopes up. I guess I'll find out soon!

I think you should wait until March to contact them. Duke indicated that they would let everyone who submitted an application know by the end of February, so if you don't hear by March, ask. It's only 5 more days of waiting.

I would respond to the email you received acknowleding that they received it with your question as to whether or not they've processed those they received in November. This may actually play to your advantage as they will have some actual contact from you that they haven't from others.
Thanks. Actually, I just sent an email asking if the form was matched up to my file properly. Pah, I should have asked whether they've processed November forms yet.

Has anyone heard any updates on the 2/8 Under Review Group?

So I got in, but was told that my acceptance wasn't "official" until I completed the merit aid application soon to arrive at my doorstep. Is this another ploy by Duke to game the rankings?

I've been at UR since 1/25 without moving, you'd think they'd have sent me the WL/reject email by now...

Who all should hear by the end of February? My scholarship form wasn't even received until 2/18, so I'm assuming that doesn't apply to me.

Yeah, at this point I wouldn't even care if it was a WL or rejection because I have already gotten into other schools I preferred to Duke in the first place. I just think it's strange that they're waiting so long to do it, and I also want to cross a school off my list.

My UR date changed today from UR 11/16, to UR 2/23. Hoping last year's waitlist turns into this year's acceptance.

Anyone have an idea of how long before I get a decision--or does a changed UR date not really mean much?
