BTW I wonder if this thread led to the enrollment deposit thing being taken off the status checker.

EDIT: Don't think so, Void. I have it and haven't sent in the scholarship form yet.

I thought it was funny that my first mailing (admissions packet) showed up last Thursday (11/5), yet it was dated 11/9. Good to know that they're planning ahead.

is anyone who's gotten in already currently abroad (and put their overseas address down as current address, which is retrospect may have been a mistake)?

i was accepted via email on 10/16 and and status checker says admissions packet was mailed 10/20... but i've yet to receive it. obviously things take a while to get to me, but i want my lanyard, dammit!

(and i wrote a why duke essay)

I am currently abroad in one country and my mailing address is in another country. My packet was mailed on the 15th and I still haven't got anything at either of my address. To be honest, at this point, I really don't know where to expect my mails anymore.

But you could email the admission office and tell them that you would like to receive your packet faster and thus would like to change your mailing address. Duke certainly changed mine although I am still not sure where my admission packet is going.

Has anyone else had the application fee and deposit amount spots disappear? Previously, mine had 0.00 for both, but now there's absolutely nothing under the "fees" section, which I can only take as a bad omen.

TG:

Are you sure this just happened today? I think it might happen when your file goes under review.

Not a PT person, but from obsessing over this forum, it has taken from 1 day at the beginning of the cycle to sometimes a full 10 business days for some people. I believe the norm has been a week, but it seems that lately it was taking longer and towards using the full 10 business days.

Same here, I never used the internet browser as much on my IPhone as I am now for status checkers.

I don't think it has anything to do with going under review. I've been under review since early October (non-ED/PT), and it's been there up until today.

That happened to me a few hours before I got my PT admit email, so don't despair necessarily, it could be good news! I also got my email before my status changed to decision rendered.


i've got the same blank space there now too. been under review since 10/6. non ed/pt. good luck to all of us if this means it's decision time

Ahh I'm under review as well (since 11/2) and I have nothing under my "fees" section either.

I'm non ED/PT as well... Very eager to get a decision back! Fingers crossed & good luck to everyone! :D

Heh my fees went away too, not getting up my hopes up over that.

Anyone not have their fees disappear?

No fees here, either. "File Ready For Review" doesn't mean its under review, right?

No, IIRC, there is an actual "under review" status.

as far as i can tell, that basically means it's complete. and "under review" means you are still going to have to wait 5+ weeks for a decision if you are RD.

has anyone RD had an acceptance or, i hope not, a ding?

That's what I thought, thanks.

I'm too lazy to go digging through this thread, but I do believe there have been a couple RD+non PT decisions (including at least 1 acceptance).
