I think the issue for some, speaking for myself here, is the timeline.  If you've been accepted to a program that starts in January, but don't get an interview invitation until after the tuition is already due for the other program...you're a bit up the creek without much of a paddle.

I received my acceptance email yesterday, as well! What a journey it has been. 

Last year, I interviewed at the end of the cycle, and was waitlisted. I do know how many of you feel! To those of you who are discouraged and don’t have other interviews lined up- it’s natural to feel that way. But don’t let what you can’t control at this point consume you. Trust me- if you allow it to, it makes for a long several months. 

Like a previous poster mentioned- don’t be too daunted by the idea of the wait list. Last year, Duke offered applicants on the wait list seats all throughout the interview process. After all interviews were concluded last year, there was  one big waitlist...but so offers were extended to those waitlisted, before that point! 

If this is your passion- don’t give up on yourselves or your journey!

Congratulations! @hmtpnw on your acceptance. 

@Durian123 all is not lost yet. Many of the current 1st years were initially waitlisted as well. So was I. Stay positive and keep improving yourself.

 @pacplease keep your chins high. This is part of the process. I'm not sure if you interviewed or not. If you did same advice as above. If not, then then remember the cycle is not over yet. I don't know if you have other schools to hear from, many send their invitations in November. 

Thank you !  Would you mind sharing your own timeline of waitlist vs acceptance ?

To those of you who have received acceptances - congrats!  How long did it take until after the interview to hear back?  I'm interviewing Tuesday and just curious as to how long I will have to sit in anxiety to know the decision ?

One week after the interview I received the email about being on the waitlist. One week after being put on the waitlist I received the acceptance email. 

For some the waiting period from waitlist to acceptance was longer.

Invited to interview on 11/12, but will be declining. Best of luck to all!

May I ask why you will be declining?

To those who interviewed on 10/15, it was great meeting all of you! It was the most informative and laid-back interview for me, partly  because the faculty and staff were really warm and welcoming, and partly because each and every person at the interview was amazingly qualified and unique! I loved getting to know everyone, good luck to all!

@Samsed I was accepted to my top choice which is much more affordable and closer to home. But I’m sure Duke is a wonderful program, but $$ & location are major factors for me. 

Those are definitely great reasons, thank you for sharing! Best of luck to you!

So......was placed in the queue on 8/6, and it sounds like some people after me are either getting rejected/getting interviews. Should I take no news as good news? As an interview hold? Don’t want to call since they specifically stated not to but my curiosity is getting the best of me.

Is Duke the type of program that no news is good news? My application was completed 7/17 and I still haven't heard anything back.

Still haven’t heard anything yet. I’m going to assume that I’m on some type of interview hold/waitlist since I submitted super early and still haven’t heard anything! 

 

Hopefully some good news soon! ??
