Complete 10/30, UR1 11/13. Nothing since.


I feel like between ED and PT, Duke RD apps probably take especially long if you submit early on.


ive been ur2 for two weeks, however two rd people got quick turnarounds after ur2 earlier in the cycle.

Don't have an answer for you, but I submitted same day (maybe 12/12? it was around midnight). Just went UR2 so my hopes are officially up.

Same exact dates here except I submitted 10/20. Also didn't check the status checked until after I got the email but I did check this morning so it was only an hour or so delay in between status update and acceptance.

Keep your hopes up; I was just admitted! PT applications submitted 2 weeks before Christmas can apparently still get <10-day decisions.

Applied 12/11, UR1 12/12, UR2 12/15, accepted 12/20

If I apply PT now will I still get a decision in 10 days or no because of the holidays?

I doubt you’d still get a decision in 10 days. I know they told some people who applied last week that they may not hear back until January. I would expect the same for you.

The admissions office is open this week, but it's pretty unlikely that they'll be working at full capacity next week. You'll probably hear back sooner if you apply now then if you apply January 1st, but I don't think they'll get back to you by New Year's Eve.

Considering applying for the combined JD/LLM program in international law. I think it costs an extra 10k a year though, anyone else can confirm this? Anyone else thinking about the program. I'm hungry for degrees, so the 2-in-1 is appealing.

New to this thread. Got accepted via PT back in November with 167 and 3.77. I wanted to know what y'all what thought about filling out the CSS profile? I have divorced parents, lived with both over the course of my life but one makes a considerable bit more than the other. Wanting to know what the best way to fill out my profile to have the chance to get the most financial aid possible.

Thanks

Any idea if there will be another PT invite wave? Hate to pay the fee if they’re going to do another wave since the last scores were released.

You can get an unsolicited merit based fee waiver without being a PT invite
