Yo everybody, I got an interview! Wow, that didn't take too long or anything. Just in case you didn't hear originally, I was complete on August 20, so there is still hope if you haven't heard yet. They updated my status page yesterday. Waiting for almost 4 months dude, whoa.
I was away in St. Louis for a few days, then came back to an email from them. I looked at the status page and it shows up there too...I don't know which one happens first, the email or the status page, but in any case I thought it would be good news for everybody still waiting.
My application was complete in mid-November, and i got my interview invite recently via email. (tears of joy)
if i can get it, you can get it: there's hope for everyone. be patient
btw, i don't recommend calling them up. I called them up once, and the guy i talked to on the phone was not polite at all. In fact, I have never talked any admissions office personnel as rude as the guy aargh.... anyway, i hope he is not someone who would interview me.
*ANY* day now I should be hearing *SOMETHING*! Jeez - i was complete the 20th of Aug and still nothing... it's so weird how they work down there. Whoever is "rating" my application i hate 'cuz s/he's taking too much time!
AFTER 99384397834 POSTS I HAVE *FINALLY* GOTTEN AN INTERVIEW AT DUKE! WOO!!! Too bad the first available interview date is freaking Feb 28th! But that's okay! WOO! My app was complete on Aug 20th! Crazy!
Congrats Kreno. Sorry to hear you were rejected Brutus. I am still waiting, waiting, waiting....I have obssesive compulsive mail/ email/status check disorder. This really sucks. I called and they said they would have everything updated by next week.
yeah... the 28th of feb. talk about the bottom of the barrel eh? i wonder if that puts us at a significant disadvantage. obvously i'm not their best applicant! ha! but... interviewing on the *VERY* last day! JEEZ!
Yeah, It's sorta cool when you start a thread and it lasts so long! Freaking duke!
Nope....still waiting...I've come to the conclusion that I will be seeing the rejection page soon....Even if I got an interview, I don't know if I could spare the money now. Why is dookie doing this to me????
yeah i hear you. i'm starting to ponder if i should not interview now... because 1) my stats are lower than duke's averages... and 2) they only accept 1 out of 5 interviewees. That's not good odds... given the fact the school is so far away and i have chances at other schools.
So i just scheduled the 28th of feb... my roommate suggested i make spring break out of the occasion... drive down to mrtyle beach after or maybe florida (i'm from detroit). dunno... grr.. stress!
i just can't turn down a USNEWS school ranked at number 5, however... that would be horrible. i have to at least see how i like the school.
