I'm sorry if this has been asked already, but do we know what happens for PT people if their 10th day is Saturday? I went under review on the 11th.

People seem to have gotten emails on the weekend before. So it does not seem that the admission office stops working on the weekend.

I think the lanyard qualifies as "unique." Not really "exciting" though.

Finally went under review today (11/19) after completion on 11/3.

How does Duke usually notify applicants of decisions?

I submitted the 9th. Under review the 11th. Now it says 18th. I'm also regular decision. No idea why I was under review so quickly.

Congrats, near-numbers twin! Surprised you didn't apply to more T14s.

Hmm.. I have slightly higher numbers and have been Under review for a month (obviously not expedited). Interesting. Am I being YP'd?

They really don't appear to do any yield-protecting. If you are not PT you generally get put behind all the PT applicants, even if your numbers might be better.

My "UR" just got updated to today's date. I'm PT, and I went complete first thing on the 11th.

Were you under review on the 11th too? Is this the first time you are under review?

I think I was first under review on the 11th, but it actually might've been the afternoon of the 10th. I'm telling myself it was the 11th, just so I don't go crazy if there's no news today. Best of luck to you!

Alright so basically I'm feeling like without a PT invite and an application sitting around not being touched for the past month... I'm definitely looking at a WL.
