    No updates here either. We are supposed to hear by Aug. 1st though, so we still have another week to wait. I haven't applied anywhere else either because I really like the Global/Community Health focus of Duke's program. Good luck!

    I received my admissions email on Friday, which was more relief than I had anticipated. It was an email stating the decision had been made and to check the account you used to apply. So I'll be starting this spring! Good luck to you all and the countdown will be over soon : D

    Hey everyone! I'm on the waitlist too for the FNP program for spring. I'm hoping for the best, but I don't know anything about this particular waitlist and the chances of admission from it. Has anyone heard anything?

    Hi! I called the school this afternoon because I'm on the wait-list as well. I asked if there was anything else I needed to do at this point and they said no. If a spot opens up, they will contact us. I asked the lady if, from her past experience, if people actually get accepted off the wait list and she said yes. She also said that the committee ranks us on the waiting list and when taking more students, they start from the top but were not able to tell me where on the list I am ranked. I'm pretty disappointed, but still hoping for a chance. Good luck to you too!

    Thanks for the info! I wish you the best of luck too! I wonder though if there is a way to find out our rank? I'm sure it would make a big difference to be #1 or 2 compared to let's say, #20.

    I called the admission office today and was told that they are still in the process of sending out the decisions and that I should get an email soon (the email will tell me to me to check my "apply yourself" account). I felt a little reassured after talking to the school today...but I'm still anxious since I haven't heard anything yet :-(
    The person I talked to in the admission office said that the admission decision will be "dropped" into my "apply yourself" account "very soon"....and that I will be informed whether I am accepted, wait-listed, or denied.
    Good luck to everyone who applied. I am trying to keep a positive attitude, but have made peace with the fact that I may not get in...even though I gave it my best shot. I have been re-thinking my back-up plans and will apply to both Western Carolina U. and East Tennessee State U. if I don't get into Duke.
