went to decision on 2/17 according to duke status checker.  do they normally call admitted applicants?  should i be worried about this or just wait and see?  nervous twitters right now.

I went to decision too.  There were a lot of rejections this week but a lot of good numbers that should be auto admit went to decision as well.  People are theorizing that it is likely a bunch of waitlists/rejections.

And I do think they either call or email their accepts, but supposedly not necessarily on the day of decision.

i'm guessing a wl/reject then...even tho a couple ppl with close to my numbers have been admitted already im borderline.  can always hope tho

just Trev

Rejected from Berkeley today.  No complaints because I kind of expected it and have pretty great choices right now, but it does kind of suck just to find out via status checker.

Waitlisted at Duke, really I'm kind of surprised about it.  Was expecting a rejection.

That succinctly articulates my general feeling. 

"Wow I got waitlisted, totally wasn't expecting it at Duke.  This is great."

And then,

"Well crap, it's another waitlist that I'll stick on and probably not get off of. And it makes my decision no easier still."

Pardon Johnny Cash.

tc, Duke seems to care about about GPA - more than most of its peer institutions, so this was somewhat promising opposed to your other shocking dings.

Is there something about your application that you haven't shared which explains why we all feel badly for you?

Perhaps.  I plan on being more forthright upon the completion of my cycle since I do have some very usual aspects about my app.
