Sorry to re-ask the same question, but what is everyone's status checker showing. I am still UR but I want to brace myself if the WL/Rejection email is coming today.


I was waitlisted. Your status changes to "decision -- you will be notified soon" ... something like that. Then once the email is sent, your decision shows in the status checker as "Waitlisted".

I was waitlisted, but it doesn't say Waitlisted on my status checker.

Sorry I had Duke confused with another school. Mine still says "decision you will be notified soon" and has not changed to waitlisted.

$67,500 scholarship in the mail today. Definitely not enough to make me consider going.

Apologies if it is in this massive thread, but can someone tell me when the first seat deposit is due at Duke? And if they have a scholarship deadline? I can't seem to find it on their website.

Thanks.

Did anyone successfully negotiate a [larger] scholarship yet?

IIRC, they said that they won't make any decision on changing offers until all initial offers are made. Is this true? And if it is, then what is the key date there? I want to hold off until after the ASW to send in my appeal for sure, but I wonder if/how long I should wait to see if I hear back from NYU or Columbia...

This is just crazy. I'm 1/29, so I know it's not as bad, but I still feel like this is nuts.

I'm "under review" 2/7 but my application received email is from 12/12 so I've been waiting a while. This wait is pretty demoralizing.

Similar dates, slightly longer wait (only by a few days)...I don't mind the wait so much because it is my DREAM school, but the wait is certainly helping me prepare myself for the worst :cry: and I can't decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing...haha

either way, I feel you guys' pain <3

Waitlist email today. Will do everything I can to get off it, but it looks like the list is huge and filled with great numbers. Is there a Duke WL thread someone can link for me? I tried to search but didn't find it.

My application was received on the 12/9. I've been complete since 2/1. Is it time to give up? Would it be rude to call and ask if they have any idea when a decision will be reached? I've got deadlines coming up soon.

So how long does it take to get a scholarship (or not) from the date that one sends in the scholy form?

I heard from a very, very reliable source that the last initial scholarship offers will be sent out this week.

I have heard a rumor that the WL is larger than the entering class. It sucks but I think it is actually true.
