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.
