I submitted to Duke on Sept 16th. 179 LSAT, Stanford grad . . . I've been under review since the middle of Oct. Definitely jealous that so many other people have heard from Duke . . . sigh.

Congrats for UCLA and GULC.

My GPA similar with you but LSAT slightly higher. I wait for 5 weeks for duke but yet no reply.
Not a good Sign.

I am prepared for WL or reject letter

I think this is the lowest Duke has been on the forum listing since the start of this cycle. No one has heard anything from Duke today? Anyone's date change? A phone call? Daydream? Anything....?

Alack and alas, no news yet on the Duke front for me today. I"m PT and went complete first thing in the morning 11/9, presumably making today day 10, and my date changed yesterday, so I'm so nervous I'm ready to jump out of my skin.

I have a question that may have been addressed earlier so sorry. I submitted 11/9. under review 11/11. Now under review but 11/18 is the date. Not PT as far as I know. Does this mean anything?

I had the same thing happen yesterday and today I just got the decision made status. I think it means they're finishing up on your application.

I somehow don't feel sorry for you...(unless you have a terrible GPA)...

Assuming you're OK on the GPA front, your cycle will be lovely...even if you don't hear back as quickly as us Priority Track applicants (who are much more in "Duke range").

Has everyone gotten their email the same day as decision made or is it sometimes a few days later?

God I hope you are right. I'm 3.5 and 171 so I don't think I would be auto admit by any means... but it is a little funny that I went under review in a day.

My application has been complete and ready for review since two-plus weeks ago. I guess that they're quite busy at the moment; my stats are pretty strong so I'm not worried...yet.

sigh. I am getting so tired of seeing "Under Review 10/25/09" on my status checker! Come on, Duke!

I'll trade you my "File ready for review" for your "Under Review."

What is Priority Track / Priority Reserve? And how did I not know about this option before I applied?

Perhaps that's why my application hasn't yet been sent to review. It's OK; I can handle the wait.

Sorry to hear that. With those stats, I wouldn't be surprised if you got in later.
