They just sent a PDF to the waitlist email address with a short intro.

Did you use an alum/current student or just a random person? I am wondering if an alum who barely knows you can provide a stronger rec than your supervisor


An alum who barely knows you cannot provide a better rec than your supervisors who interacts with you every day. Examples of your work and an understanding of why you'd be great at Duke far exceed the name of an alum on a piece of paper.

About 2 weeks left until the next decision day! Anyone withdraw, or is everyone still actively waiting?

I'll be in it for the long haul. I know I'm not the only one wondering what your plans are though. Holding out till 5/10? Later?

Getting nervous! I'm still flabbergasted that they don't notify people on the waitlist after they've received Round 2 deposits (which are due 4/30)... but, I guess that allows the adcom to have the information of who is in the class when evaluating waitlisted and Round 3 candidates.

I visited Ithaca again, and honestly... it won me over. I'm pretty conflicted at the moment. I will definitely not be on later than 5/10.

I've heard nothing but amazing things about Johnson. Still, I'm hoping that some of us old-timers on the WL can share that celebratory beer in Durham come August. :) Either way, you've got great options in front of you.

I'm at the airport right now waiting to catch my flight to Raleigh. This morning I checked my interview invitation and realized that I will be interviewed by an alum. I thought second-year students did all of the on-campus interviews. Is it only different for round 3?

After April 30, is it possible to find out how many students have paid deposits?

These next two weeks will be rough - let's hope that adcom starts calling waitlisters from May 1st (highly unlikely though)

I am seriously hoping that they don't call anyone this time, and let us find out via online status chage. That March 15th day was pretty stressful.

I sent in my final update on Friday as well.. figure 2 weeks out is a good timeframe! The next 10 days are going to seem to go by slowly, yet, I know it'll be really quick! :/ eek.. crossing fingers and toes!

you'd think they'd be able to get in touch with people on the waitlist prior to round 3 decisions... nerve-wreaking waiting until 5/10!

Today is the last day to interview for round 3 applicants, so I believe that they will start looking at the apps from tomorrow.

Yeah, but I wouldnt expect anything before next Wednesday. I'd say starting Wed morning, I'll be watching here and our evil counterparts at that other place like a hawk.

Just to manage expectations guys, you might not hear anything with R3. If that's the case, you will hear something by end of May/early June -- that's when they figure out who goes on the summer waitlist.

Ha, don't do this to me again. Don't give me another day to count down to.

May 10th is my last day! If I don't have a blue school next to my name by the 11th I want everyone to yell at me.
