+1. Does Duke have a "target date" by which they send out decisions?

Edit: I haven't even gone DR yet though..blehh

I think they email either way? I've heard dings by email and acceptances. Perhaps it's in junk mail?

well it depends...do they snail mail or email acceptances/rejections? it seems as if you would have heard by now if you got waitlisted.


Its seems that they send everything out my email...which is why I'm nervous...

Welllll I talked to admissions, aparently it shouldn't take more than one day to get the email (so I guess they do email all decisions)...they said they would check their records and email me some time today...

Big envelope in the mail today from Duke, thought there was the chance it was a scholarship. It was a letter from the dean with a law review article he wrote in it. Bollocks! (Though I will read the article...)

Aww bad luck, I received both those comms at the same time, in separate envelopes of course.

So sorry to hear about all the waitlists and dings, guys. Does it seem to anyone else like it's downhill now?

I feel like they've just forgotten about me. Applied before Christmas, UR 1/29 and . . . nothing since. What gives? Anyone else?

Just stagnating here on TLS with me, then. Glad to know I'm not alone.

thanks for the info. about to send mine now.

i can't absolutely guarantee that if they accepted me off the PR i'd go, but there's probably a 95% chance I'd would. trying to think of a good way to say this.
