I interviewed in CA at a regional interview in late November.

Not a word yet.

I know that this definitely means that I'm not accepted...so it's probably a waitlist or rejection.

No word here either (new york)....I don't think it's exactly pessimistic to assume not-so-great news at this point, but we can always hope, right?

One question: have people posted that they've received post-interview rejections/waitlistings at this point??

I heard of rejections, but not a waitlist yet.

I have heard nothing from anyone. I think that the mail service is broken. Or that my postal service worker has been abducted. (possibly by aliens.)

I haven't seen anyone posting a waitlist--so maybe those that haven't received anything are waitlists....its not nice to keep us waiting (and I hold grudges! ;))

No word here in NYC either..I think its safe to say we were either w/l or rej. Plus I'm a minority, and it looks like they ALL get phone calls :thumbdown: to Duke

I was in the admissions office this afternoon. I overheard the secretary tell someone on the phone that all decisions other than acceptances were mailed today. Also, I overheard her say that all those who had been given acceptances would have received Dean Wallace's congratulatory email that was sent yesterday. Hope this provides some clarity for those still wondering. Good luck to all of you!

Guess a ton of connections in the hospital and alumni status can't get you everywhere.

Here in CA...not a word yet.

I know that it's probably a waitlist, but more likely a rejection. Kinda hurts, but I would have not gone to Duke over UCSF or UCLA anyways.

I got my alternate list today in CA. Really disappointed. It's been a real crappy few days for me. I also got waitlisted at UCSF recently.

Durham to NYC is 492 miles. Assuming letters were sent on Monday, that's less that 100 miles a day...the postman could have ridden a bike here by now!

:laugh:

It's a long way out here to CA, so I can understand not receiving a letter.

But everyone on the East coat should be in the know by now.

So sorry, 1111gal. I'll be joining you soon. Duke's loss ;) .

But it seems that you have some other great schools to choose from.

G'luck! :luck:

Still waiting in SoCal. Seriously--my letter from Tuft's was postmarked Friday the 25th and I got it on Monday the 28th. This is getting ridiculous! :confused:

I haven't decided where I'm going definitely, but I don't think I belong at Duke anymore...I think I'd be happier somewhere more urban and probably also somewhere where it's easier to walk or take public transit, and a car isn't the greatest necessity. (Atlanta traffic has worn me in :rolleyes: ). That and I had a painful personal ordeal with someone at Duke who has decided to stay there for grad school. Despite the flaky agreement to stay "friends," being in the same zip code is not my favorite idea....
