Just an FYI for others waiting for Duke... I was looking at the website and it says that they like to make most offers of admission by March 1. I suppose this means that the acceptances are about over...  :-\ Also, did anyone withdraw from Duke? If so, how did you do it (email, fax, etc.)?


Oh no!

I withdrew by sending in the form they sent me.

Went complete on 11/16 and still have not heard a peep. I wish they would just go ahead and give me the waitlist email so I can stop thinking about it. Seems pretty obvious that they were going to accept me they would've done so by now.

Yeah, I went complete in late October.  :(

FWIW, I went complete 1-10 and was accepted yesterday with above-median numbers.  I did send a Why Duke Essay two weeks after going complete, which may have slowed the process.

Uh-oh...I went complete on 1/10, also.  Status checker still says complete.   :-\

How did you receive your acceptance?  Did your status checker ever change?

I received an e-mail Saturday before my status checker changed. Though I hate to be the bearer of bad news, I believe if you've been waitlisted or accepted you get an e-mail with the status checker change.  Or that is how it seems to be going this year.
