I just wish they'd be more transparent. Like telling us if they admitted anyone today off the waitlist or off of R3 and how full the class is already. Maybe they act like this so that you start to feel anger and resentment towards them and then it's not so hard if you are never admitted.
I understand the frustration. When I go to Duke, I'm gonna organize a coup d'etat of the admission committee. With me in power, applicants will not longer need to suffer through useless/inaccurate status information; applicants will know exactly where their application lie. My biggest goal is to rid of the dart-board admissions process and institute an objective evaluation process, so only cool and smart people get accepted. GMATClub moderators will get automatically +10 points for admissions.

Who's with me?!?!

Just spoke to an admissions representative. I was told if there was any change in your status, you would have heard earlier today. From this point on, notifications will be on a rolling basis.
The schools that do that really chafe my @$$. This is nothing but arrogance. I understand doing it in EA, because the people that apply then are obviously very gung-ho about this particular school. But to do it now, when people (like myself) have a decision to make (i.e. Darden or possibly NOTHING) - it just doesn't sit well with me.

I submitted the application in R2 but because I took the toefl after the deadline they postponed my application to R3. I received the "check your updated status" email on Apr 22, around noon eastern time. I am accepted and need to confirm by May 3. Good luck

There is no harm in calling, they dont ask your name or for application information when you ask a question

I just called and got no information. We may hear news any time between now and the start of classes. We will get this information by way of an e-mail telling us to check out status. The nice woman was not able to offer any information regarding available spots in the class or anything along those lines.

Sorry it isn´t any help but now you know for sure how little we know.

I haven't been on here in months but wanted to share that I was admitted last week as well - I have accepted. From the conversation I think there could be a chance of a 2nd round of calls based on how many accept from this first group of admits. Probably this week bc of a deposit deadline early this week. Good luck to everyone still waiting!!

I was just offered admission off the waitlist on Tuesday afternoon. Had to accept by today and I did. Whew quite a rollercoaster and still going. Speculating but seems like there have been a couple of people off in the last couple of weeks which means they're probably no longer overbooked. Would reccommend that everyone still waiting complete their FAFSA form if they haven't, know the deadline is 6/30--could put you at an advantage if they have spots open up last minute, you'll be ready to go. Best of luck to everyone!!

I'm applying EA (so long as it's around again this year; no reason it wouldn't be, but I guess you never know until they release the deadlines, etc.). Can't wait!

Strange, this thread is not coming up in the search yet. That's why I added 1 last night.

EA, Duke's my #1 choice. I need to research some more about application submission, campus visit and interview timeline; whether it makes sense to visit and interview (if possible) before submission so I can incorporate that in my essays.

I also need to retake my GMAT and I will probably schedule that just after Labor day weekend.

ElleBee, what are you plans? I need to review the 2009 thread completely. Seems like the LOC is the biggie.
